Hurricane Ian Prep: 43 U-Haul Locations in Florida Offer Free Self-Storage

As families evacuate ahead of the storm, they can store possessions free for 30 days at a participating U-Haul facility

TAMPA, Fla. (Sept. 26, 2022) — U-Haul® is offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box® container usage at 43 Florida facilities to residents who stand to be impacted by Hurricane Ian.

The hurricane is expected to make landfall by midweek, bringing the likelihood of significant storm surges, high winds and flooding to the west central coastal region of Florida. Hillsborough County and at least a half dozen other counties have begun issuing mandatory evacuations to go into effect on Tuesday.

“Roughly 100 miles of the Florida coast is currently under a hurricane watch, but experts are urging everyone in this region to have emergency plans in place,” said Mike Wise, U-Haul Company of Clearwater president.

Bob Magyar, U-Haul Company of Tampa president, added: “As a member of so many Florida communities, U-Haul is in a unique position to help as this storm approaches and families plan to evacuate. We’re extending our disaster relief program to our neighbors throughout much of the state, with 30 days of free self-storage at participating locations.”

The free month of self-storage services is available to customers renting new units and is subject to vacancy at each U-Haul facility. People seeking more information about the U-Haul disaster relief program or needing to arrange 30 days of free self-storage should contact the participating facility nearest them (listed alphabetically by city):
