U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Self-Storage and U-Box Portable Moving and Self-Storage Containers to North Texas Residents Who Have Been Affected by Recent Storm Activity

May 20, 2015, 16:28 ET from U-Haul

DALLAS, May 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Companies of Northwest Dallas and Fort Worth are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box portable moving and storage containers to residents who were affected by the severe weather and flash floods that recently swept through North Texas.

With U-Box portable moving and storage containers, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box container with you. U-Haul also can store the U-Box container in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.

U-Haul centers have much-needed 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 topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand in the event of long-term power outages.

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 one of the following U-Haul regional offices:

U-Haul Company of Northwest Dallas
811 E State Hwy 121 Business
Lewisville, TX 75057

U-Haul Company of Fort Worth
3017 Alta Mesa Blvd
Fort Worth, TX 76133

U-Haul partnering with business owners across North America to increase convenience for customers while helping our environment is another one of the programs that support U-Haul Company's Corporate Sustainability initiatives. Corey Lane, mayor of Bridgeport and owner of Furniture Supercenter and U-Haul Dealership stated, "I am concerned for the needs of our community during the recent severe storms and recovery.  We appreciate the partnership with U-Haul in providing assistance for the citizens of Bridgeport and surrounding communities that may have been affected."

Garner Carey, marketing company president, U-Haul Company of Northwest Dallas noted, "Independent U-Haul dealers like Corey are the very backbone of U-Haul in communities all over North America.  U-Haul is here to help and support in any way we can."
