Students, parents can avoid campus crowds on move-in days by allowing Collegeboxes to deliver items to dorms
PHOENIX, June 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Collegeboxes®, the No. 1 student storage and shipping provider in the country, is offering students early delivery service to their schools to help them comply with safety protocols and achieve social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Colleges and universities across the country are looking for ways to help their students return for the fall term while following CDC guidelines. Many campuses plan to institute daily limits on the number of students moving into university housing.
"To prevent students from gathering on campus all at once, Collegeboxes is encouraging the use of our Ship-To-School service," said Dain Howell, Director of Collegeboxes. "With the Ship-To-School options, students don't have to load up their car or lug items to the airport.
"The Early Delivery option with our Ship-To-School service is great because we're able to work directly with schools to deliver students' items to their dorm room before they arrive on campus. This will make move-in easier and safer."
Call (866) 269-4887 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
DISCOUNT CODE: Collegeboxes is offering 10% off shipping on orders that include the Ship-To-School service. Students will enter the promo code "STS2020" on the website, or mention it when calling.
Students who sign up for Ship-To-School at collegeboxes.com can elect to order a Collegeboxes Supply Kit, or use their own boxes. Once items are packed, students will print labels from their Collegeboxes account and schedule the delivery. Items are then shipped to a U-Haul facility near their school until it's time for them to be brought to the student residence.
With Ship-To-School, Collegeboxes can deliver items to hundreds of dorm rooms with only a few workers, preventing students and parents from congregating and risking their health.
"Collegeboxes is changing the way students move," Howell added. "We're reducing the amount of shipments to campus mailrooms. We're reducing the number of vehicles on campus. We're reducing the amount of contact students and parents have with others to keep them safer."
Because Collegeboxes is backed by U-Haul®, whose services are available throughout the U.S., it can assist students at almost every school in the country – from small colleges to the largest universities. And Collegeboxes can be available to help on short notice.
