Student Services Moving and Storage Company offers local, interstate and intrastate moving seven days a week with guaranteed dates of pickup and delivery. In addition to our moving services, we offer full or partial packing as well as storage in our climate controlled warehouse. On all of our moves we provide complimentary shrinkwrap for your upholstered furniture and floor paper to protect your home. Just another way Student Services Moving and Storage Company goes above and beyond to provide you with the best service possible.
Local moves are typically performed at an hourly rate for the number of men and the truck. These rates are charged from the time the movers leave our office until the time they return. Although there are extra charges for large items such as a piano, pool table or hot tub, typical local moves are simply done by the hour. During certain busy times we do charge fixed rates for local moves, but that charge would be pre-determined by a Student Services Moving and Storage Company representative prior to the date of your move. We provide wardrobes on local moves to help transport your hanging clothes, shrinkwrap your upholstered furniture, and protect your floors with floorpaper, all at no additional charge. Call our office for rates today, or to schedule an estimate.

That translates to a seamless move for you and your family. No waiting around for the moving truck or wondering where your goods are. And no risk of commingling shipments or losing your belongings.

Student Services Moving and Storage Company offers storage for customers who require a delay in between pickup and delivery of their goods. Your belongings are given extra special care as they are carefully wrapped and placed in storage vaults in our state of the art climate controlled warehouse. Your upholstered furniture will be shrink wrapped and placed on sofa racks to avoid damage to the fabric. All items are inventoried and separated from other shipments to insure that your items are kept separate and secure. When you’re ready for delivery, just call us. It’s that easy.
To make your move as efficient as possible, all packing should be done prior to moving day. Please separate all personal belongings you may need overnight and items you will need immediately at your new home.
If we do the packing - Our movers will pack everything unless you tell them differently. It is a good idea to sort through cabinets, drawers, shelves, and closets prior to the arrival of the packers. Look for items to give away or throw away, so you don’t pay to have them packed and moved, cluttering your new home. Also, look for valuable or important items that should be separated from the general household goods the packers will be packing. We do not pack or move jewelry, money, keys, flammables, and guns. You should try to separate your important papers or files as well.
Mattresses - We do not use mattress boxes unless specifically requested. Since our moves are completed immediately, this additional cost is not needed. Mattresses are always padded on the truck. However, mattress boxes are available upon request and are required for storage.
If you are packing yourself, don't forget, we sell boxes! We sell boxes at competitive prices. From dishpacks and book boxes to tape and paper, we have it all. See our packing materials pricelist for a full menu on what we offer. All boxes not packed by Student Services Moving and Storage Company are considered delivered safely if there is no external damage to the container. Please use an excessive amount of paper on your fragile items. Label each box, noting contents and where it is to be placed in your new home. Please tape all boxes closed.
The following items must be packed in boxes or the movers will pack them and charge you accordingly; stereo components, VCR’s, small speakers and subwoofers, computers, mirrors, pictures, glass table tops, fragile lamps, all lamp shades, and all small fragile items. Our movers will loan moving pads if you choose to move something yourself.
REMEMBER Student Services Moving and Storage Company movers are personally responsible for the safe delivery of your belongings. Please help them to do their job properly. Do not expect them to take chances.
