Collegeboxes Now at Barry University

MIAMI, Fla. (Jan. 17, 2020) -Collegeboxes is rolling out student storage and shipping services at Barry University in Miami starting this spring.

Barry University students will now have a full-service shipping and storage solution for their valuables. Collegeboxes offers a range of options, including storage for the summer, shipping items to and from school, and international shipping.

'We're eager to begin our services at Barry University,' said Sophia Hutchinson, Collegeboxes program manager. 'We pride ourselves in catering to students' needs and remove the stress from moving to and from school.'

The average student travels more than 300 miles to school, which causes logistics problems for many families. Collegeboxes offers a solution by allowing students and their families to ship mini fridges, mattress toppers and storage bins to and from school with the Ship to School and Summer Storage services.

'Collegeboxes is designed to assist students in every step of their college adventure; from the first move to campus to the post-grad trip to the new job location,' Hutchinson added.

Collegeboxes began serving students in 1999 and is now available at over 175 universities and boarding schools across the U.S.

A division of U-Haul®, Collegeboxes offers assistance almost anywhere. It is currently serving some of the largest colleges in the nation, including School of the Art Institute, Arizona State University, Harvard, Stanford, San Diego State, University of Miami and Penn State, just to name a few.

U-Haul Truck Share 24/7 now offers customers access to U-Haul trucks every hour of every day through the self-service options on their internet-connected mobile devices.
