BOSTON, Jan. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Companies of Boston, Connecticut, Eastern Mass, New Hampshire and Maine, Rhode Island, and Western Mass and Vermont are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Containers to residents who have been affected by Winter Storm Juno.
U-Haul Company of Long Island extended the same offer on Tuesday.
U-Haul stores have supplies available to help with storm recovery, such as boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are full, since propane is an effective source of heat in the event of long-term power outages.

"From the beginning, we anticipated the storm and our local teams carried out a store management plan to operate through the storm and be ready to go when the storm was over, helping citizens with propane, self-storage and anything else they need," U-Haul Area District Vice President Levi Parmerter said.
"The 30 days of free storage we're offering ties into that. U-Haul wants to help."

In addition to the 30 days of free self-storage 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 instead of discarding the box in a recycling bin.
