U-Haul Offers 30 Days Free Self-Storage to Flood Victims in Southwestern Quebec

LAVAL, Quebec , April 7, 2017 /CNW/ -- U-Haul Company of Western Quebec is offering 30 days of free self-storage to residents of Sainte-Thérèse and surrounding areas who have been or will be impacted by flooding.

Greater Montreal has taken on extensive water due to heavy rains. Flooded streets and flooded home basements in several communities have created the need for secure and dry self-storage options where people can keep their possessions.

"Many residents in Sainte-Thérèse have been forced from their homes," said Philippe Delisle , U-Haul Storage of Laval general manager. "The Rivière aux Chiens is spilling over and causing some real problems."

U-Haul Company of Western Quebec president Claude Boucher added: "U-Haul is a strong member of these communities. We are willing to help in whatever capacity we can."

Families needing more information about the 30 days self-storage assistance should contact:

U-Haul stores offer needed supplies to help with storm recovery like boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. U-Haul urges customers to ensure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in the event of long-term power outages.

U-Haul is the industry leader in do-it-yourself moving and self-storage, with more than 21,000 locations across the U.S. and Canada . In addition to its 30 days free self-storage assistance, U-Haul is an official American Red Cross Disaster Responder and is proud to be at the forefront of aiding communities in time of need.
