Shipping home from college

Avoid the baggage fees and let us do the lugging!

Why Use Dorm Room Movers to ship your things home

Do you have items that you plan to bring back home, but don't want to lug everything with you on the flight and pay the extra baggage fees? Sign up for our Ship Home service, and we'll send empty boxes to you. Just pack and schedule a pickup with UPS through our website, and we'll ship them to your home. At select campuses we'll even pickup your packages from your dorm room.

I slept an average of 3 hours a night finals week. Without Dorm Room Movers I would have been too busy moving to get even that meager amount. The result: All A's and safe easy storage.

Everyone was truly genuine and enjoyable to talk with, polite yet personable. An amazing staff to work with your needs.

Alexandria McCall North Carolina State University Student

Our son goes to school in a city that is hundreds of miles from home, so we needed an affordable summer storage solution and Dorm Room Movers is ideal. Everything is simple. From scheduling pickups and dropoffs to getting packing materials, it's been a great service from the get-go.
