Summer break is just around the corner !  Chances are, you don't need to take everything you own home with you and might not have a car at school to move your items into storage. Don't stress, we've got you covered. Find out how College Student Storage can work for you while you are headed home for the summer.

When you're getting ready to travel, plus taking finals at the end of the school year, the last thing you have time to worry about are more logistics. That's why CSS provides you with packing supplies that we deliver it to you ahead of time, and pick up of your storage at your door. We'll make sure you have boxes in sizes that work for you, all the tape you need, packing materials, and even a poster tube to boot.  We can store anything !  It doesn't have to go in a box.   If you have furniture, beds, bikes, skis, snowboards, plastic containers, futons, etc.. no problem. If you need an extra hand with packing, we've got that covered, too.

Parents living outside Colorado, CSS is for you !  We save you a ton of time, money, and hassel. Here are a few examples: Having to take time off work and or vacation days, flying or driving to Colorado, renting a car, meals, staying in a hotel room, renting a storage locker, going and getting packing supplies, moving items to a storage unit, and then doing it all these steps all over again in August when school starts up again. We make it so you don't have to any of this.

General Info about our Summer Storage services:

WE CAN STORAGE ANYTHING! -Your Items dont have to go in a box!

Summer storage prices are based on the amount of items you give us and include pick up at your residence on or off campus, storage for the summer months or a semester, and delivery back to your new residence when you return to school on or off campus, plus insurance.

Number one question we receive- How much does your Summer Storage service cost?  

If you have only a few items, your summer storage can be as low as $100-$150 for the whole summer. If your have a normal sized dorm room full of items you are storing for the summer the average is between $250-$350 for summer storage. If you have furniture and items you will be storing over the summer break a fair average is between $500-$600 for the enite summer. It really just depends on what you give us when we pick up your items. These are average estimates to go on from my experience of running CSS for the past 22 years as the owner.  Please read below for exact storage pricing. You can always call or email us too for a estimate.

Storage Packages:

You dont have to or need to do a storage package, They are only here to save you $$. We can store anything you have.

Many students use a storage package and then add on a few items like plastic bins, bike, dorm Fridge, Skis, snowboard, etc.. Again we can storage anything. 

CSS offers four different convenient storage packages to save you money if you are interested. Many students start with one of these storage packages and then add items on to them such as bikes, skis, furniture, plastic containers etc.

Students will pick out any storage package they want (if they want one) when we hand out boxes and tape to them or by filling the boxes of a package they want before we pick up their items.

When we give you boxes and tape, we give you enough boxes to fit into our first 3 packages. If you would like package 4, please ask for those boxes specifically

Storage Packages include the following:

  • Boxes (3 different sizes), tape, poster tube, labels, and tags being DELIVERED to you one week in advance of your pick up.
  • Pick up of your items at your address on or off campus
  • Climate controlled storage for the entire summer break or per semester with insurance
  • Delivery back of storage items to where ever you live when you return to school on or off
  • All packages include insurance.
