What Parents are Saying

“My son’s freshmen year of college, he decided to go to a school 1,000 miles away from home. I am a single parent who had not attended college, and had no clue on how I was going to get his items from DC to Florida. I did a little research and came across Collegeboxes.com. The process was so simple and very affordable. I was greeted so warmly by Albert Williams. He became a major conductor in helping me overcome this major challenge. We continued to use Collegeboxes throughout his first year away from home. Collegeboxes is a game changer!! Great rates, outstanding customer service, and is catered to help parents like me in a crisis.” – Danielle, Parent – Bethune – Cookman University

“My name is Katherine and I’m a mother of a freshman at our beloved HBCU Tennessee State University! Go Tigers!!! Traveling from state to state is not easy, so I can say that Collegeboxes provided an amazing experience moving our freshman to school, so we could focus on spending time with our child! It was truly an honor working with Collegeboxes! Counting down to Spring, when I will definitely use Collegeboxes again to store my son’s belongings over the summer break.” – Katherine, Parent – Tennessee State University
