TUPELO, Miss., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Company of Mississippi is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Pods to Mississippi residents who were affected by the recent, large tornado that swept through Tupelo and other surrounding cities.
U-Haul centers have much-needed supplies available to help with tornado 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.
