“Four U-Haul Companies across the Carolinas, Florida, Georgia and Alabama are offering 30 days of free self-storage and U-Box container usage at 28 facilities to residents who stand to be impacted by the heavy rains and extreme winds associated with Hurricane Michael,” an official with the company said in a news release.
