All items receive up to $100 of coverage on them. Extra insurance is $50 for every $1000 worth of coverage. Customers must let us know on pick up what they want extra insurance on. Many students will put extra insurance on TVs or expensive bikes.

We are extremely fair to our customers, if we break, lose, or damaged items while they are in our care, we will do whatever it takes to make sure they are either repaired, replaced, or the customer is compensated for the damage. This is how CSS has ALWAYS run our business. The students and their parents are our customers and we want to make sure you are taken care of and understand that we are a moving and storage company that actually cares and will not nickel and dime a customer if an issue arises, we really do care about our reputation

Labeling your storage items:

We ask that all students label ALL of their items ahead of time before they show up with their full name and confirmation #. With boxes, we ask that you label all 4 sides and the top of every box with your full name and confirmation # with the marker we gave you. We plastic bins, please labels the front and the top of each one with your full name and confirmation # with the marker we gave you, please make them are tape shut!. For items that don't fit in a box, we ask that you use one of our tie tags and label both sides with your name and confirmation #. We also have sticker labels you can use for any other items. We don't mind helping students who have at least attempted to label their items. If a student does not label their items they will be charged for us to label them. The cost is $35 for every 15 minutes. You can print out additional storage labels from the website ( at the bottom of the homepage) or use tie tags that we give you, or just make your own. Please make sure labels are secured tight to each item. Do not tape or stick labels on the top or front of any furniture. The tape or stickers will pull off the varnish! Tape labels to the back or bottom of furniture. We will bring mattress covers and label all beds. The better you label your items, the quicker we can complete your move and it will make it easier on us.

PLEASE! Take a moment to look at the repacking videos located at the bottom of the home page.
