Collegeboxes, a division of U-Haul®, offers maximum convenience by picking up students’ belongings from their dorm room at a scheduled time and placing them in a secure local U-Haul storage – or shipping those belongings to their desired location. The program offers the peace of mind from dealing with a trusted national brand while also having local teams in virtually every U.S. market.

“Collegeboxes broke records in 2023 by helping more students than any previous year,” stated Dain Howell, Director of Collegeboxes. “This means a record number of students and families are looking for new and better ways to approach college move-out day. Our goal is to make college move-out a stress-free event for both parents and students. They just need to sign up, pack their things and Collegeboxes does the rest.”

While 350-plus schools currently extend full-service moving benefits to their students through Collegeboxes, another 990 U.S. schools offer Collegeboxes’ direct shipping service.

Full-service schools have access to school-scheduled dates for Collegeboxes specialists to assist students; pickup times from dorm rooms; loading and unloading boxes; barcoding boxes for easy tracking; reporting for students to easily follow their items; storage at secure local U-Haul facilities; and domestic and international shipping.

“Students pay by the item and Collegeboxes picks up those items, places them in storage for the summer, and delivers them back to students in the fall,” Howell said. “We use customer service texting to keep parents and students informed, and they’ve let us know that is appreciated with their repeat business.”

Collegeboxes has been moving students and storing items over the summer since 1999. Student communications go through Collegeboxes – not the school – so administrations are unburdened. Collegeboxes assumes all liability for possessions once they are in the care of the local team.
