DAVENPORT, Iowa, May 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® Company of Eastern Iowa is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents in Davenport where flooding has been significant.
A flood barrier along the Mississippi River failed on Tuesday, sending floodwaters rushing into the city. Many buildings have taken on water, causing an immediate need for dry and secure self-storage units where people can bring their possessions.
"The waters in the Mississippi River have been high for weeks due to heavy rains and snowmelt," said Robert Hampton, U-Haul Company of Eastern Iowa president. "The flooding is unpredictable and we want to make sure residents know they can store their belongings with U-Haul for no cost for one month."
