Shipping and "Ship to School" Options

We ship all of our clients' belongings via UPS, a trusted leader in the shipping industry. We put $500 of insurance on each item we ship, and email you tracking numbers.  For "Ship to School" services, no matter where you're located, we can send you a box kit of 5 boxes to pack items up, email shipping tags, help you schedule a UPS pick up from your home, and have your items shipped to our offices. Then we'll make sure your property arrives at your child's school address on the date you select.

When We Deliver

No matter if you're an early bird who's packing months in advance or a late riser who's packing up at the last second, we'll store your boxes and deliver your belongings to your dorm or apartment or house when you arrive to school. Take a look at our delivery schedule for your school and select a day that works for you.

  • At each school, one of our delivery dates always coincides with the first day that residence halls are open to incoming freshman.
  • Most colleges and universities will NOT accept shipments to residence halls early. CSS stores them for you until the residence halls open!

Schools We Cover

CSS delivers to colleges and universities throughout Boulder, Denver, and beyond. From Denver University in South Denver to the School of Mines in Golden, we're here for you. Moving to a swanky off-campus apartment? We deliver to both on-campus and off-campus addresses.
