Storage and Shipping

College Storage and Shipping is an innovative moving solution that simplifies the college moving process. There’s no need to load a car with boxes, check bags at the airport, and haul belongings to and from campus. We do the heavy lifting for you. Ship what you want, store what you want – any combination. The process is customized to your needs every step of the way.

  • Door Pickup Icon

    At Your Door Pickup

    Students can schedule a pickup of their belongings right from their dorm room or apartment, eliminating the need to transport items to a storage facility. Collegeboxes provides boxes and packing supplies in advance, and on the scheduled pickup day, movers come to collect the packed boxes and larger items like mini-fridges, bikes, and suitcases.

  • Climate Controlled Icon

    Climate Controlled Storage

    Once Collegeboxes picks up items, they are securely stored over the summer (or semester) at the local U-Haul Climate Controlled Storage Facility.

  • Door Delivery Icon

    At Your Door Delivery

    When students are ready to return to school, they select when they want their items returned. Their stored items are delivered back to the student’s new dorm room or apartment when the new semester begins. This service is designed to make the student storage process as easy and stress-free as possible for college students.
