U-Haul Offers Free Storage To Students Moving Out Over Coronavirus

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — With colleges and universities moving to online classes—and sending students home from dorms—due to COVID-19 concerns, U-Haul is offering a month of free storage to those affected.

In a press release Thursday, U-Haul announced they were extending 30 days of free self-storage at any U-Haul owned and operated facilities to college students hit by college living schedule changes.

If you're a new customer with a college ID, you can call or visit your nearest U-Haul store to sign up for the storage.

The company has made the offer in times of natural disaster before, but it's the first time they're doing it nationwide at every U-Haul location.

“We don’t know how every student is affected. But we know they are affected,” said U-Haul President John "JT" Taylor. “More and more universities are giving instructions to leave campus and go home. Students and their parents are in need of moving and storage solutions. We have the expertise and network to help, and that’s exactly what we’re going to do.”

The offer applies to students in Canada, as well as in the U.S.

The company said there is limited availability, so interested students should act quickly.
