LOS ANGELES, July 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The U-Haul Company of Los Angeles West is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box portable moving and self-storage pods to students and faculty at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) and surrounding areas who were affected by the recent water main break that has caused severe flooding.
With a U-Box portable moving and self-storage pod, you can conveniently pick up our custom-designed trailer and take your U-Box pod with you. U-Haul also can store the U-Box pod in our secure warehouse or even pick up and deliver it to a location of your choice.
U-Haul urges customers to stop in to ensure that their propane tanks are topped off, since propane is a good thing to have on hand in the event of any long-term power outages. And, in addition to the 30-days-free self-storage assistance being offered, people who need 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.
Families needing more information about the 30-days-free self-storage assistance program should contact the following U-Haul regional office.
