Arkansas Tornado Recovery: U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Storage at 6 Stores

Media reports have attributed at least five deaths, numerous hospitalizations, and widespread devastation across the state. Little Rock was among the cities to endure extensive damage, and six U-Haul stores in the metro area have been made available to help.

With numerous families displaced and other homes that will require repairs, accessibility to dry and secure self-storage units and portable storage containers during the clean-up process is always beneficial to communities affected by natural disasters.

"We at U-Haul are deeply saddened by each loss of life," stated Angela Cogar, U-Haul Company of Arkansas president. "While property can be replaced, lives cannot. Even though Friday's tornado outbreak and severe weather was predicted, it came on suddenly and caused a large amount of damage.

"Thankfully, our teams have been responding in their hometowns and at our U-Haul stores. We stand ready to help store your property for 30 days at no cost if you were affected by the storms. May God bless and keep you."

U-Box deliveries to residents' homes includes drop-off and pick-up of containers. The offer of a traditional self-storage room is available to customers renting new units and is based on vacancy at participating U-Haul facilities.
