U-Haul Offers 30 Days of Free Storage to Families Affected by Recent Storms in Columbus, Ga. and Phenix City, Ala.

/PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Company of Southern Georgia is offering 30 days of free storage to Columbus and Phenix City residents whose homes have been damaged by recent storms and tornadoes.

In addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people needing boxes can take advantage of the U-Haul Take a Box, Leave a Box Program. The program enables customers to return their reusable boxes and allows others to take them as needed - FREE. U-Haul encourages anyone who has any type of reusable box to drop it off at the nearest U-Haul location and allow another family to reuse the box, free of charge, instead of throwing the reusable box into the recycling bin. U-Haul also has propane available and urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand when these storms come through.

Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following storage facilities.

930 Tenth Avenue
Columbus, GA 31901

"These storms have caused tremendous damage to the communities we serve," stated Tony Fretwell, president, U-Haul Company of Southern Georgia. "I hope these efforts will provide assistance to families that truly need a helping hand if their homes or businesses were affected by these storms. We will continue to help our friends and neighbors during their time of need."
