PENSACOLA, Fla., May 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Company of Southern Alabama is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Pods to all residents who were affected by the recent, devastating flash floods that swept through parts of the Alabama Gulf Coast and the Florida Panhandle late Tuesday and early Wednesday.
U-Haul centers have much-needed supplies available to help with flash flood 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.
