HOUSTON, May 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul Company of West Houston is offering 30 days of free U-Box container storage to residents of Sealy and Wallis affected by the microburst that struck the small towns earlier this week.
A number of folks in Sealy and Wallis saw their properties damaged or destroyed by the high winds from an intense storm that hit late Tuesday. The microburst temporarily shut down Interstate 10, flipped vehicles and blew roofs off houses.
"The damage may not have impacted a wide area, but it was severe and left people in need," said Matt Merrill, U-Haul Company of West Houston president. "As a member of these communities, U-Haul makes it a point to help in times of need. One way we can do that is through our 30 days disaster relief program."
U-Box portable moving and storage containers can be delivered by truck to Sealy and Wallis storm victims and stored at U-Box storage warehouses in Katy or Houston. People seeking additional information about the 30 days free U-Box assistance or needing to make arrangements should contact the U-Haul Company of Houston traffic line at (800) 486-2382.
With 257 cubic feet of space and one-ton capacity, U-Box can be delivered to and picked up at your door, packed on your timeframe, transported to the destination of your choice and stored until the time of your choosing. Or you can conveniently pick up our customer-designed trailer and take your U-Box with you.
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.
