What is Collegeboxes?

Collegeboxes is a division at U-Haul designed to improve the way students move to and from school. Rather than deal with the hassle of loading up a car, renting a truck or trailer, finding a storage unit, or even checking bags to move by plane, families can have Collegeboxes handle everything. Collegeboxes will pick up directly from the student and have their items stored while they are away or shipped anywhere worldwide.
