LOS ANGELES, March 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/
-- Collegeboxes®, the No. 1 student storage and shipping
provider in the country, wants its customers to know their personal
belongings can be picked up and shipped or stored on short notice
as institutions like the University of
Southern California, Loyola
Marymount and others notify students they are suspending
classroom instruction for the coming weeks and encouraging students
not to return to campus after spring break due to coronavirus
As these mass transitions to online instruction occur, the
probability rises that California
universities may follow the path of other schools and have students
evacuate campus housing facilities mid-term. This would require
students to return home, where they can meet their academic
requirements remotely, before customary campus move-out days in
late spring and summer.
Collegeboxes is responding to accommodate an influx of early
spring moves if this need arises in California. Contact (866) 269-4887 or
email@example.com to find out when Collegeboxes will be on
campus picking up items for storage or shipping.
Customers should create an account at Collegeboxes.com to
initiate an order. FedEx® will then ship items to customers'
residences. Supply Kits include five double-walled boxes, packing
tape, a permanent marker, 10 label pouches and zip ties. Once
packed, an at-home service will pick up the boxes and save
customers the trip to the shipping center at no additional
With the international option, items can be shipped anywhere

hold their personal belongings in climate-controlled storage at a
