Fort Collins, Colorado

            Colorado State University Coronavirus Update April 13th

This is Michael, owner of College Student Storage, I wanted to let you know we are doing in room pack ups for Colorado State University students and parents who have items left in the residence halls because they were on Spring break when this epidemic hit and do not wish to return to CSU to pack up their residence hall. CSS is a moving company and is an essential business and is allowed to be open even though all of Colorado is on a mandatory stay at home order.
We are working with CSU housing on this and coordinating with the directors of each residence hall or RA's on the student's floor to get into students' rooms to pack them up. We are doing these twice a week on Fridays and Saturday's and will be making more days available as we move towards the end of the semester. I have provided CSU housing with all my insurance documents. We will bring a crew of 3 to 4 employees to each in-room pack up. We have a ton of these scheduled and are booking up fast. So if you need us to do an in-room pack up please get registered ASAP
COLLEGE STUDENT STORAGE will be doing CSU In-Room Pack Ups Every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, From now until School, ends and halls close on May 16th.

“As my freshman year at Colorado came to a close, I faced the daunting task of storing the contents of my dorm room during the summer -- as an out-of-state student with no car, getting everything back to California would have been very difficult. A friend referred CSS, and I was very happy with the service. CSS was organized, professional and very reliable: they provided me with everything I needed -- boxes and tape -- the company was ontime and efficient when it was time to pick up my dorm items, and they were equally as helpful when they returned my stored items at the beginning of the following school year. Most importantly however, CSS provided great service for an affordable price. It would be a shame to give another company sole access to CU residence halls when CSS has been such a great and successful business on campus for so long; therefore, I strongly urge you to allow CSS to flourish and continue their wonderful service to CU students.” — Jen Gassner
