SHREVEPORT, La. (June 18, 2023) — U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage to residents in the Ark-La-Tex region impacted by Friday’s storm.
Damaging winds associated with the storm downed trees on roads and homes and led to power outages. The National Weather Service confirmed an EF-1 tornado touched down in Caddo Parish. Having accessibility to secure self-storage during the clean-up process is beneficial to communities affected by natural disasters.
“As our neighbors begin to clean up their properties, we want to provide a safe place where they can store their things,” said Warren Iles, U-Haul Company of Northern Louisiana president. “We encourage anyone in need of a storage unit to give us a call and take advantage of our disaster relief program.”
The U-Haul disaster relief program applies to new self-storage unit rentals and is based on availability. People seeking more information or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the nearest participating facility:
