Curbside Vs. Valet

We offer curbside pickup (Free) or valet pickup ($300)

Curbside: students must bring all their items to the curbside of their building during the pickup window. 

Valet: students meet us downstairs and lead us to their room and we will bring your items down for you.

We leave promptly at the end of each window. If you miss the window, we will have to schedule a custom pickup ($90 fee)
