PODS Enterprises Inc., a moving and storage company that provides portable-storage containers, recently opened the corporation’s first franchise in the United Kingdom. The newest PODS franchise, located in Leeds, England, will serve the moving and storage needs of residents and businesses throughout the West Yorkshire region.
“It’s exciting to introduce the unique PODS moving and storage concept to England,” said Jeremy Bradburn, owner of the Leeds franchise. “The initial reaction by residents and business owners in Leeds has been very positive, and we anticipate business to increase steadily as the word spreads.”
To celebrate its opening, PODS Leeds is supporting the Radio Aire & Magic 828’s Cash for Kids Christmas Toy Appeal. The company will help collect, store and transport donated toys to sick and underprivileged children. Cash for Kids is the umbrella brand for Bauer Radio’s network of independently registered local charities, which operate across 20 local areas within the United Kingdom.
Founded in 1998, PODS currently provides moving and storage services to a population of more than 245 million consumers, in 48 U.S. states, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom through its company-owned and independent franchise network. To date, the PODS network has completed more than 300,000 long-distance relocations, exceeded one million deliveries and has nearly 141,000 PODS containers in service.
