Unfortunately, the transition into college or a university can be challenging, even for the most well-prepared students. Preparing to move all of your valuables and belongings are so keen to ensure that you have everything you need to start a successful year at your new school.

Since our humble beginnings at Duke University in 1999, Collegeboxes has always strived to be your one-stop service for all your college moving, shipping, and storage solutions.
