With hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas, U-Haul has stepped in with an offer that promises to keep residents’ valuables safe. U-Haul locations across North and South Carolina have extended an offer of 30 free days of self-storage and U-Box container usage across the company’s 50 locations in the two states for all affected residents, according to reports from FOX 46 WJZY in Charlotte.

Hurricane Florence is maintaining its Category 4 strength as it continues to move toward the Carolinas, with experts predicting it to make landfall on Thursday. Thousands of residents across North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia have been preparing for the worst, while the governors of each respective state have declared states of emergency.

“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 told FOX. “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.”

A coalition of the U-Haul divisions of Central North Carolina, Charlotte, Coastal South Carolina, Northern Virginia, Richmond, South Carolina, Southern Atlantic Coast, Southern Virginia, Tidewater, and Western North Carolina have all stepped forward with the offer, bringing the grand total of storage centers that will be in use to 94, including all sites in North Carolina and South Carolina as well as sites in parts of Virginia and Georgia.
