U-Haul Offering 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Pods to Mississippi Residents Affected by the Recent Tornado

TUPELO, Miss., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Company of Mississippi is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Pods to Mississippi residents who were affected by the recent, large tornado that swept through Tupelo and other surrounding cities.    

U-Haul centers 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.

And, 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 office.

"This tornado that tore through Tupelo and other surrounding cities has proven to be devastating and has caused a lot of damage throughout the northern part of our state," stated Doug Weston III, president, U-Haul Company of Mississippi. "I hope this effort will help provide assistance to everyone who needs support."
