We all know U-Haul as our go-to guys for borrowing a trailer to tow a car, but they’re also great at helping people move and provide temporary storage. U-Haul Company of Louisiana however is going the extra mile for residents of southern Louisiana that were recently affected by severe thunderstorms and flash flooding.

Natural disasters are always bad news, but it’s always great to see companies stepping up to lend a helping hand afterwards. U-Haul will be offering 30 days of free storage and U-Box Portable Storage to help residents get back on their feet. With the U-Box Portable Storage, U-Haul will deliver the U-Boxes (or you can pick them up) and once they’re filled they will store them in a secure location or bring it to wherever you need it.

And in additional to the 30 days free storage being offered, U-Haul is also offering free boxes as part of their Take a Box, Leave a Box program. The company is encouraging all those with extra reusable boxes to drop them off at the nearest U-Haul location so that another family can utilize them.

Those families in Southern Louisiana that want more information on the program can contact U-Haul at (337) 993-9898.

“These severe thunderstorms and flash flooding have caused a tremendous amount of damage to the communities we serve,” stated Warren Iles, the president of U-Haul Company of Louisiana. “I hope this effort will help provide assistance to families that need support. We will do our best to help our friends and neighbors in this time of need.”
