Storage firm offers discounts to students displaced by pandemic

Clearwater-based PODS has reduced rental, delivery and transportation fees.

CLEARWATER — PODS Enterprises LLC has cut its rental, delivery and transportation fees by 10% for college students who have lost their on-campus housing as a result of the global coronavirus pandemic. 

Students in the United States and Canada can take advantage of the six-month offer, according to a press release. PODS will deliver customers a weather-resistant container that can be transported locally or across the country, or kept in one of the Clearwater-based firm’s secure storage centers. 

"Here in North America, with little to no notice, college students are being asked to leave campuses," states John Koch, president and CEO of PODS, in the release. "As all of us navigate through the COVID-19 outbreak one day at a time, the biggest unknown is, when will these students get to return? With our easy moving and storage solutions, students can store their belongings for as long as they need so they can focus on what really matters: getting home safely and staying healthy."

The offer is open to new PODS customers until April 30, the release states.
