Collegeboxes Expands to Canada in Time for Student Move-Outs

Mar 1, 2023

Collegeboxes®, a division of U-Haul®, is bringing its stress-free shipping and storage solutions to Canada after 24 years of serving students and universities in the U.S.

When students move out of their dorms and apartments in the spring to go home, and then return to school in the fall, transporting or storing their belongings can be challenging and costly.

Collegeboxes eliminates the hassle. Students who sign up for services enjoy an easy, expedited transition to and from school each term while knowing their possessions are secure.

Here’s how it works: 1. Select your school and create an account at collegeboxes.com. 2. Receive and pack your boxes; unboxed items can also be stored. 3. Collegeboxes picks up your items and stores them until next term or ships boxes, luggage and bags anywhere in the world.

Collegeboxes has started by providing 10 Canadian universities across Alberta and British Columbia with its full range of services. In celebration of expanding its services to Canada, students signing up at any of these 10 schools before March 15 will receive 15% off summer storage. Use the promotion code: CANADA15.

“Canada has some of the world’s best schools, attracting students from across the globe who need moving and storage solutions that are convenient and affordable,” stated Dain Howell, Director of Collegeboxes.

“We work directly with housing departments at colleges and universities to create unique programs for their campuses. This is imperative. Every school has different needs, but one thing they have in common is a desire to make the move-in and move-out process easy and efficient. We make this possible.”

Howell said the ability to pay by the item being stored, rather than renting an entire self-storage unit, provides cost savings to students and their families.

“Our Ship to School service has revolutionized the way students move to school,” Howell said. “Instead of paying big luggage fees when moving by plane, students ship items with us, we store them locally at a secure U-Haul facility and deliver them when they arrive on campus.

“Moving to and from school with just a backpack is now possible.”

Schools interested in learning more can email info@collegeboxes.com or call (866) 269-4887. Collegeboxes full-service schools in Canada currently include:

Alberta

British Columbia

Students at all other schools can still utilize Collegeboxes’ Direct Shipping service and track their shipment using their account.

Since 1999, Collegeboxes has provided proven results for schools managing the difficulties of move-in and move-out day. Student communications go through Collegeboxes – not the school – so administrations are never burdened. Students gain peace of mind knowing Collegeboxes assumes all liability for possessions once they are in the care of the local team, while also using a service that integrates social distancing during a very crowded time.

Collegeboxes is the No. 1 student storage and shipping provider in America with over 350 full-service schools.
