“Although my son only used your company one time, I'm sure he was happy with it. I heard no complaints from him. He is now in a condo off campus, so won't need to store anything for next year, but I was there last summer when your company delivered his boxes to the condo. I was impressed that I was given a two hour window and the boxes arrived within those two hours. Everything was there and intact. Usually I've experienced from companies of all sorts, a larger window of time like "all day" where I have to wait an entire day, or they don't show up at all.”— M. Sullivan
