U-Haul offers 30 days free storage for people affected by Yellowstone flooding

BILLINGS, Mont. — U-Haul companies in Montana and Idaho are offering 30 days of free self-storage and container usage at two facilities near Yellowstone National Park to help people affected by extreme flooding in the area.

About 10,000 people have been evacuated from the park due to the floods and homes in the surrounding areas have sustained water damage.

“As our neighbors deal with this disaster and seek help with the recovery process, we want to provide them with a clean, dry place to store their possessions,” said U-Haul Area District Vice President Doug McIntier who oversees operations in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. “These floods have left behind destruction. Those in need can give us a call and receive a storage unit or U-Box container for their belongings at no cost for one month.”

People who need boxes can utilize U-Haul’s in-store Take a Box, Leave a Box program where they offer an area for people to drop off used boxes in good condition. Others can then access the boxes at no cost.

U-Haul is encouraging anyone with reusable boxes to drop them at the nearest U-Haul store location for the purpose of helping those affected by the Yellowstone flooding.

For those looking for more information on the U-Haul disaster relief program or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact U-Haul Moving & Storage of West Park in Billings, Montana, or U-Haul Moving & Storage of Idaho Falls in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
