BOSTON, Oct. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --Six U-Haul Companies across the Northeast region are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents who have been impacted by the cyclone over the last few days.
The nor'easter dumped heavy rains and caused flooding across the northeast coast. Thousands of residents were left without power.
"This storm has left devastation in its wake," said Stoyan Kovachev, U-Haul Company of Southern Massachusetts and Cape Cod president. "U-Haul is a strong member of the communities in which we do business. We are lending a helping hand to our neighbors in their time of need. We urge those who need a dry and secure place to stow their belongings to give us a call."
U-Haul Companies of Boston, Southern Massachusetts and Cape Cod, Western Massachusetts and Vermont, Lower Hudson Valley, Southern Virginia and New Hampshire have made 40 facilities available to offer the 30 days free disaster relief assistance program.
People seeking self-storage assistance should contact the nearest participating U-Haul facility (locations alphabetized by state, then city):
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.
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.
