30 days of free storage being offered to new customers in need, while vacancy lasts
LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- U-Haul® is making six facilities across Kentucky and Tennessee available to provide 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to assist residents in the recovery process following severe flooding in the region.
Recent storms have caused extensive home damage and left standing water in many communities across eastern Kentucky and Tennessee. Flooding rendered roads impassable, destroyed bridges and even swept away some homes.
"As folks begin the clean-up process, we want them to know that U-Haul is here to help," stated Christopher Minnich, U-Haul Company of Louisville president. "Anyone impacted by flooding can make use of a storage room or U-Box portable storage container at no cost for one month at our participating stores, while availability exists."
