CHARLOTTE, CHARLESTON  and RICHMOND – U-Haul Companies across Virginia and the Carolinas want to help you stay prepared before Hurricane Florence hits.

Ten companies in the three states are teaming up to offer 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage to residents who will be affected by the heavy rains and extreme winds the storm will bring.

Florence, now a Category 4 storm, is expected to make landfall Thursday. The governors of Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina have declared States of Emergency in the last few days in preparation for the storm. Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam issued mandatory evacuations for Zone A, the lowest-lying areas of Coastal Virginia and the Eastern Shore, to go into effect Tuesday at 8 a.m.

“People are preparing to leave their homes, creating an immediate need for secure locations where evacuees can bring the possessions they wish to protect,” said Doug Weston, U-Haul Company of Western North Carolina president. “As a member of these communities, we are in a position to help by providing this service to our friends who are in harm’s way.”

The companies of the Tidewater region; Central North Carolina; Charlotte, Coastal South Carolina; Northern Virginia; Richmond; South Carolina; the Southern Atlantic Coast; Southern Virginia and Western North Carolina have made 94 facilities across four states – including Georgia – available for assistance.

The following locations will be offering the complimentary self-storage:

U-Haul stores also offer supplies necessary to help with storm recovery, such as boxes, tarps, propane and propane tanks. The company is urging customers to make sure their tanks are topped off since propane is good to have in case there are long-term power outages.

U-Box containers allow customers to conveniently pick up the company’s custom-designed trailer and take the U-Box with you. You can also store your U-Box container in the company’s secure warehouses or pick it up and deliver it to a location of your choice.

For more information about the 30-day free self-storage assistance, contact the nearest participating U-Haul store.
