A mother and son pack for college

Collegeboxes is a student storage, moving, and shipping service designed specifically for college students. For over two decades, we have been helping students transition into and out of college dorms and apartments, earning the trust of moms everywhere. If you’re unfamiliar with Collegeboxes, here are 10 reasons why it is the go-to choice for moms: 

1. Decades of Experience 

We know a thing or two about student moving. That’s because we’ve been doing it since 1999. With over two decades of dorm room moving know how under our belt, plus a network of over 350 schools we service and countless successful college moves in the rearview mirror, you can be confident that Collegeboxes is worthy of your trust when it’s time to send your child off to college. 

2. Top Tier Name Recognition 

We’re a division of U-Haul. Not only does this give us access to the country’s largest selection of moving trucks, local movers, and self-storage facilities, but it also gives us industry-leading name recognition. Families have been trusting U-Haul with their DIY moves since 1945. Now they can trust Collegeboxes with their dorm room moving needs as well. 

3. Convenient Customer Support

Our knowledgeable and helpful team is available via chat, email, text, or phone call 7:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday to answer any questions or concerns that you may have. Collegeboxes also offers a satisfaction guarantee, which ensures that moms and their children are completely satisfied with the moving and storage services provided.

4. Flexible Student Storage & Moving Solutions 

Many college students need to store their belongings during the summer months or when they are studying abroad. Collegeboxes offers a variety of storage options to meet these needs, including direct shipping, storage near campus, and international shipping. Learn more about our flexible college moving solutions to find what’s right for you. 

5. More Free Time for You

Save time by allowing us to handle the heavy lifting during both back to school and summer break. We’ll pick up items from your home over the summer or child’s dorm room at the end of the year, put items in storage, and deliver items back to your child when they’re ready. That means less time spent hauling luggage through an airport, checking bags, or packing up the car, and more time spent with your child before they move to college.  

6. Stress Reducing Solutions

One of the main reasons Collegeboxes is trusted by moms is because we offer a wide range of convenient and affordable solutions that make the moving process much easier and less stressful for both students and parents. Moving is stressful enough. Our services alleviate those stresses and create a more pleasant experience moving into the dorm rooms. 

7. Trustworthy Protection

Sending a child off to college with expensive gadgets can be worrisome. It’s sort of like when you sent them off to grade school in their nicest outfit. However, with Collegeboxes, you can rest assured that your child’s belongings are protected with our declared valuation protection starting at $100 per item. When their stuff is with us, you can have peace of mind knowing that you are covered. 

8. Endorsed by School Administrators

Harvard, Stanford, the University of Miami, and San Diego State are just a few of the prestigious and renowned universities across the United States and Canada that trust Collegeboxes to manage their student moves. We have even been officially endorsed by school administrators at dozens of schools, so we have earned the trust of both parents and schools alike. 

9. Affordable and Transparent Pricing 

We don’t charge hidden fees. Our storage prices are a flat rate per item/box. We even offer low shipping rates through our Direct Shipping service. We do all this so parents and students can trust they’re getting the best service for the best possible price. Our transparent pricing also allows you to know what you’re paying for.  

10. We Make Your Job Easier

Collegeboxes also offers packing supplies, which can be particularly helpful for parents who are unable to help with the moving process in person. Moms can order the Collegeboxes Supply Kit which comes with five boxes, tape, and other packing essentials directly from Collegeboxes and have them delivered to their child’s dorm or apartment.  

Collegeboxes is a trusted and reliable service for college students and parents alike. With our convenient and affordable solutions, excellent customer service, and commitment to satisfaction, moms can trust that Collegeboxes will make the moving process as smooth and stress-free as possible for their child.
