A growing number of Portland area universities are closing campuses and switching to online instruction. As a result, U-Haul is prepared for an early spring moving rush and has stepped up to help.
U-Haul is offering 30 days of free self-storage at U-Haul-owned and -operated facilities to help college students in the United States and Canada who may be affected by the unforeseen schedule changes at their campuses.
How do students take advantage of this deal? Contact the store nearest to their school by phone or in person to take advantage of the offer. Visit U-Haul’s website for all locations.
Who is eligible for this deal? The free month applies to new customers with college IDs, and it is a limited-time offer subject to availability. If lots of students at the university are filling up the closest U-Haul facility, students may need to call multiple stores to check availability.
Need help moving? Visit uhaul.com or call 800-GO-UHAUL to reserve a truck or trailer. U-Haul also accepts third-party pay, which enables family members to fund their loved one’s moving and storage needs.
In addition to the 30 days free self-storage offer, U-Haul operates Collegeboxes, a student storage and shipping provider in the United States. Students can call 866-269-4887 or email to email@example.com to find out when Collegeboxes will be on their campus picking up items for storage or shipping.
Students should create an account at Collegeboxes.com to initiate an order. Boxes and packing supplies will then be delivered to a student’s residence. Once packed, an at-home service will pick up the boxes from the dorm or apartment at no additional charge.
With the international option, items can be shipped anywhere across the globe. Students also may opt to have Collegeboxes hold their personal belongings in secure storage at a nearby U-Haul facility. Click here to see the 205-plus schools Collegeboxes serves.
After the first storage month, prices for storage start at $45 a month.
This deal does not have an end date at this time. I will continue to check it and post any changes that are made.
