How CSS Saves College Parents from Traveling

How CSS Saves College Parents from Traveling
You couldn’t be prouder of your kiddo — it seems just yesterday you were reminding them to finish their elementary school math homework, and now they’ve completed their first year of college! 

While this new chapter is exciting, you can’t help but cringe a little at the idea of another move. The plane tickets or drive, finding parking, packing up your student’s stuff, getting a moving van — the list seems endless.

And with travel restrictions and the current health risks associated with CoVID19, a whole other layer of stress is added. How do you make sure your student has a smooth move, without risking your own health or flight cancellations?

Believe it or not, there’s an easy solution. We’ve met many college parents and family members in your shoes, and understand how you could use some support during important life transitions like these.

Hold off on booking your flight (or panicking about the fact flying isn’t an option right now), and put your mind at ease. We’ll make sure your student’s move goes quickly, safely, and stress-free with our moving services set up to help your family every step of the way.

Relax, we’ve got it!

Packing

Breaking or losing something is the last way you’d want to kick off your student’s move. But let’s face it, college students are preoccupied with things other than whether they properly wrapped and stored to “good luck” heirloom you gave them.

Luckily, there’s a way to ensure every item they have is safe and sound without having to secretly rewrap everything they pack.

Our College Student Storage packing services make the packing process look easy. Packers show up with all the necessary supplies including tubes, mattress wraps
and boxes, saving your student a store run on top of hours of valuable moving time.

What about the stuff in storage, you might ask? We have that covered, too!

Choose the repacking option in our moving services and we can repack the items so they’re prepared for shipping and freighting.

Hauling

Maybe part of the reason your student seems so attached to that coffee-stained futon is because (let’s face it) hauling junk is the last thing any of us want to do amidst a move.

Give your student a little encouragement to enjoy the feeling of “out with the old, in with the new” by scheduling us to take care of that old furniture and other junk that’s accumulated during their busy college career.

We’ll make sure everything is disposed of in the most eco-friendly ways possible. We even do donation runs for items that are in good enough condition to be loved by someone new.

Moving

After everything’s packed up and ready for its new home comes one of the most important parts…the move.

You’ve heard some horror stories about moves gone bad: Lost or broken items, chunks taken out of new walls. You know the importance of having movers be skilled and cautious.

We realize the importance of this, too. Which is why all our movers are trained to make sure every box and item are handled with care all the way from lifting it to unloading it.

The best part? Our movers are so experienced that most moves take 30 minutes or less once everything is packed up. You read that right: Just a half an hour to get everything loaded up and on the road.

Save your time (and your backs) by handing over the heavy lifting and transport to people you can trust.

Storing

In case you haven’t noticed in the name, storage is our forté.

We know how important it is for your student’s special belongings to be kept in a place that’s secure and prevents any possible damage.

All our storage units are climate controlled, so their record collection is safe from warping. They’re also highly secure with cameras, alarms and motions sensors.

Other perks to our storage services include:

  • Storage of any size items — even vehicles!
  • Delivery or shipment of the items when your student is ready to have them back or move them to a new place. 
  • Packing supplies provided and delivered if you decide you don’t need our full packing services. 
  • We’ll pick up the items to bring them to storage.

There you have it, a little bit of stress relief during a big transition for your whole family!

Just give us a call, let us know the services you need, then check that big move off your list.
