About Collegeboxes

Collegeboxes was created in 1999 to improve the way students move to and from school.  Since then, Collegeboxes has helped thousands upon thousands of families move their students to and from campus utilizing U-Haul trucks, U-Haul storage facilities, and U-Haul Moving Helpers. Collegeboxes provides both storage and shipping services to students. 

Our Services

Ship to School 

Students ship boxes and luggage to our U-Haul facility near campus prior to move in. We temporarily store the items until it is time to deliver to campus.

Storage and Shipping 

Storage and Shipping is an innovative moving solution that simplifies the college moving process. Belongings are picked up right from the dorm room. Students can choose to store their things while they are away or ship them home. Stored items will be delivered to their new dorm room when they return.

Moving Helper Team Tasks

  • Drive U-Haul Truck
  • Pick up items (boxes, luggage, bikes, mini fridges) from students on campus
  • Load items into storage for summer break
  • Follow Collegeboxes pickup and delivery reports
  • Deliver items back to students when storage term over


Professionalism  – Wear a clean Collegeboxes uniform – upon hire we will provide you with shirts for your team. Wearing these shirts on campus helps students and university personnel identify you. 

Great Communicator – Consistent clear communication with your Collegeboxes Account Executive (AE) is necessary.  

Timeliness – It is imperative that you are on time and complete the job within the allotted time window.

Driving – A driver with a valid license is required. You will drive a U-Haul Truck from the U-Haul center to campus and back.

Valid Photo ID – Many universities require service providers to sign-in with valid photo ID, everyone on your team will need to have ID with them.
