“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
