CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, Sept. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul Company of Iowa is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents of Cedar Rapids, Cedar Falls, Waterloo, and surrounding areas who have or will be impacted by flooding.
Northeast Iowa has taken on considerable water from ongoing storms and some communities have been evacuated, creating the need for safe, secure and dry self-storage options where people can keep their possessions.
"We have had massive storms the last couple of days and there is more rain in the forecast," U-Haul Company of Iowa president Randy Dickson said. "We are well above the flood stage already. People are already evacuating their homes.
"U-Haul is here to serve local communities, so we are privileged to help these families during times of disaster and severe weather by providing secure self-storage at no charge for 30 days to those affected."
Four U-Haul locations are participating in the offer. Families needing more information about the self-storage assistance should contact the following U-Haul stores:
6110 University Ave.
Cedar Falls, IA 50613
1550 16th Ave. SW
Cedar Rapids, IA 52404
3633 University Ave.
Waterloo, IA 50701
1923 E. Mitchell Ave.
U-Haul Moving & Storage of Waterfalls has U-Box availability in addition to traditional self-storage units. With U-Box containers, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box with you. U-Haul also can store your U-Box container in our secure warehouses or pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.
U-Haul stores offer needed supplies to help with storm recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to ensure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.
