Storm Recovery: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage in Louisiana and Texas


LAFAYETTE, La., May 17, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Nine U-Haul® stores in southern Louisiana and southeast Texas are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents impacted by extreme weather.

Severe thunderstorms and flash floods affected communities across the region on Thursday night, the latest in a series of spring weather events to cause residential and commercial damage. Many homes are without power, and some schools have closed until further notice.

Access to dry and secure self-storage rooms and portable storage containers is critical for communities during the recovery process following natural disasters.

"Our team wants to help," said Emily Upshaw, U-Haul Company of South Central Louisiana president. "For any of our neighbors impacted by these storms who need storage, we're here to support your recovery with a month of free services."

The 30-day free offer applies to new self-storage and U-Box rentals and is based on availability. The free U-Box offer is for on-site storage at U-Haul facilities and does not include residential delivery and pick-up of containers.
