Mobile-storage company Store to Door has acquired Collegeboxes, the nation’s largest collegiate shipping and storage provider. Collegeboxes will benefit from Store to Door’s patent-pending box and bar-coding system, online tracking, date stamping and other infrastructure improvements.
 
At the beginning of the storage process, each student receives a Starter Kit, ordered at www.collegeboxes.com. Two days later, UPS delivers five large double-walled boxes, label pouches, markers, tape and a video showing students how to build their boxes. 
 
Originally the subject of a class project at Duke University, Collegeboxes was created as a solution to the inadequate storage options available to students. Today, the company has 50 schools as customers and provides services such as Ship to School, Study Abroad and Summer Storage. It has developed a shipping and storage system that includes online registration, account management, toll-free customer support and door-to-door pickup and delivery.
