U-Haul announced Thursday it is offering 30 days of free self-storage at U-Haul owned and operated facilities in an effort to help college students affected by the coronavirus.
Universities across the country have turned to online classes as a precaution to stopping the spread of the virus. Some schools have shut down campus, forcing students to abruptly find a way home or another place to go.
According to U-Haul, the free month is for new customers with a college ID. The company says it is a limited-time offer and subject to availability.
“We don’t know how every student is affected. But we know they are affected,” said U-Haul President John 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.”
U-Haul says to contact a store near you in person or by phone to get this offer.
