“This company did a great job for my son. It made it possible for us to avoid the shipping costs for personal belonging between Colorado and Texas for four years. It seems a stretch for CU to be obtaining bids when CU is not paying for the service. I also fail to see how CU can limit access to the University since it is a public institution. If they can limit access to companies and allow bids, what is being done for cabs, express buses, pizza deliveries, etc.?” — Lloyd Mitchell
