U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Pod Moving and Self-Storage to Georgia Residents Preparing for Possible Tornadoes

ATLANTA, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Companies of Northern Georgia and Southern Georgia are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box pod moving and self-storage to Georgia residents and business owners who may need to evacuate their homes or businesses and store their belongings in preparation for tornadoes that may be on the way.

With U-Box pod moving and self-storage, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box pod with you. U-Haul can also store the U-Box pod in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice. 

U-Haul centers are open for business and have much-needed supplies available to help with tornado recovery such as boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand in the event of long-term power outages.

In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people who need boxes can take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box Program. The program enables customers to return their reusable boxes and allows others to take them as needed – FREE. U-Haul encourages anyone who has any type of reusable box to drop it off at the nearest U-Haul location and allow another family to reuse the box, free of charge, instead of throwing the reusable box into the recycling bin.

Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following U-Haul regional offices.

"These tornadoes have the potential to cause a great deal of damage to our communities throughout Georgia," stated U-Haul Area District Vice President (ADVP) Doug Weston. "I hope this effort will help to prepare and provide assistance to area residents and businesses needing our support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need."

About U-Haul
U-Haul was founded by a Navy veteran who grew up during the Great Depression. Tires and gas were still rationed or in short supply during the late 1940s when U-Haul began serving U.S. customers. Today, that background is central to the U-Haul Sustainability Program: "Serving the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." Our commitment to reduce, reuse and recycle includes fuel-efficient moving vans, neighborhood proximity, moving box reuse, moving pads made from discarded material and packing peanuts that are 100% biodegradable. Learn more about these facts and others at uhaul.com/sustainability.

Since 1945, U-Haul has been the choice for the do-it-yourself mover. U-Haul customers' patronage has enabled the Company to maintain the largest rental fleet in the do-it-yourself moving industry which includes trucks, trailers and towing devices. U-Haul also offers self-storage throughout North America. The Company provides industry leading moving and self-storage boxes and an extended line of packing supplies to protect customer possessions. U-Haul is the consumer's number one choice as the largest installer of permanent trailer hitches in the automotive aftermarket. The Company supplies alternative-fuel for vehicles and backyard grills as one of the nation's largest retailers of propane.
