Tornado Recovery: U-Haul Offering 30 Days Free Storage to Central Iowa Storm Victims

DES MOINES, Iowa, May 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® is offering recovery assistance to victims in Greenfield, Red Oak and other areas impacted by the devastating tornadoes that tore through central Iowa on Tuesday.

Countless homes in these communities were damaged or destroyed, and a number of lives were lost.

Access to dry and secure U-Haul self-storage rooms and portable storage containers is essential during the recovery process after natural disasters.

Nikki Newton, U-Haul Company of Western Iowa president, has made four facilities available to provide 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage. The free U-Box offer pertains to on-site storage at U-Haul facilities.

"From the pictures I've seen, a lot of families are going to have to rebuild their homes and neighborhoods," Newton stated. "Iowa is one big community. We stick together and help one another. Our U-Haul team wants to support our neighbors during this difficult time with a month of free storage for any storm victims who need it."

The 30-day free offer applies to new self-storage and U-Box rentals and is based on availability. People seeking more information or needing to arrange storage services should contact their nearest participating facility:
