HOW DOES YOUR SERVICE WORK?
To get started, go to your school’s Order page and choose from the list of items you would like us to store for you. We offer a variety of storage from simply storing one box, several boxes and items, or taking advantage of our Campus Kit* storage bundles. If an item you wish to store is not on the list, simply give us a call at 1-877-667-6999 for a quote or fill in the Contact Us form and we will respond back to you promptly.
Summer storage rates are based on one semester’s storage; study abroad storage rates are based on two semesters. Storage items will be picked-up and stored in a safe, secure, climate-controlled warehouse and re-delivered to your new address in the fall. Pick-up and re-delivery dates are posted on our News section and on your school’s Order page prior to your school's move-out and return schedule. Shipped items will be delivered to the address you specify.
Once you have selected all of your storage, simply proceed to checkout and fill in the required information. Your credit card will be charged for all items included in your storage order and just like that your storage order is complete! You will receive your receipt by e-mail and then we take it from there.
Our Campus Crew is dedicated to providing a smooth move-out/return process. Our team will pick-up your belongings during the specified pick-up dates. If during your pick-up, you have additional items that you wish to store and have not already ordered and paid for, no worries, we will be happy to process additional storage items at pick-up.
Please be sure to have all your belongings packed properly (see Packing tips). All items stored with Campus Crate are labeled with one of our Storage Identification Labels. If you ordered a Campus Kit, you will receive the labels prior to pick-up. All other items will be labeled at pick-up. Campus Crate cannot store items without a Campus Crate Identification Label. In the fall during the specified return dates, your belongings will be re-delivered back to you. It’s as simple as that.
Contact us with any additional questions at 1-877-667-6999.
*The Campus Kit is your 'all in one' storage solution. There are three Campus Kits to choose from and the price includes the storage of all the boxes in the ordered kit for one semester.
