Storm Relief: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage in Tallahassee

3 U-Haul stores are participating in disaster relief efforts after Thursday night’s storms

TALLAHASSEE, Fla., May 10, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents in and around Tallahassee impacted by severe weather.

Powerful thunderstorms and a tornado hit Tallahassee late Thursday, leaving a trail of residential and commercial property damage. More than 66,000 residents were left without power, as well as elementary and high schools throughout the city.

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

Steve Kirkbride, U-Haul Company of Tallahassee president, has made three local stores available to help people in need.

“We want to be there for our community,” Kirkbride said. “Many homes and businesses sustained damaged, many roads are barricaded by fallen trees, and thousands are without power. Recovering will take time and effort. As our community pulls together, U-Haul can help by offering one month of free storage services to people who are now in need.”

U-Box containers can be delivered to and picked up from residential locations as part of the disaster relief program. The 30-day free offer applies to new self-storage and U-Box rentals and is based on availability.
