Summer & Study Abroad Storage at Colorado School of Mines

Dear Parents of School of Mines students: Please allow us to remove the stress of helping your student move out of the dorm or apartment this Spring. You can save money on airline flights, hotels, rental trucks, and of course, save your sweat and stress too! We’ll deliver free cardboard boxes right to them so they can pack. Then, we provide a curbside pickup service, climate controlled storage for the whole summer term, and return delivery in the Fall. It’s student storage made easy!

Pickup Tips and Reminders
Tips for a Smooth Process
Request more boxes than you think you might need. You can always return empty boxes when we pickup your items.
Pack your items early
Start bringing your items to the curbside BEFORE the time window begins
Label all items with your first and last name
Request a dolly asap from your RA. We will have limited dollies and carts available.
Curbside Only in 2021
Due to COVID, we will only offer curbside pickup this year.
This means students must bring all their items to the curbside of their building during the pickup window.
We leave promptly at the end of each window. If you miss the window, we will have to schedule a custom pickup ($90 fee).
