College Move-In Questions
Most students use one or two containers. We will deliver one more container than you order to make sure you have enough space. You will only be charged for the number of containers you use.
Your items will be delivered the day before Student Move In Day and will be waiting in your room when you arrive. The University will let us into the room and you do not need to be present at the time of delivery.
Your items will be picked up from your house the week before Move In Day on the day you schedule with Boerman Moving.
Your shipping container will be delivered to you one or two weeks before your pickup.
Shipping containers should be limited to 200 pounds.
These items are taken separately. Call our student moving coordinator to learn how to prepare these items.
You can load anything that will fit into the container that is normally used in your residence hall room. The standard container is 27 x 36 x 29 and can be loaded about 10 inches over the top of the container. Do not load extremely heavy items, barbells, bricks, or liquid containers that could break or spill.
Packing is an optional service the movers can provide. If you do wish to have the movers do some of or all of the packing please call the office in advance so that proper material can be on the truck the day of the move.
Boxes, tape, wrapping paper and other supplies are all available at our office.
The total charges for the move will be presented upon completion and can be paid with a personal check or cash.
The mattresses will be wrapped in clean pads to protect them from being soiled.
Everything needs to be put into a carton that is smaller than a breadbox. Items that do not need to be boxed are microwaves, stereo speakers, televisions, etc. Items such as these and all furniture will be wrapped in our thick moving pads to protect each piece.
Make you reservations as soon as you know your moving date to be assured of the day you want to move. Movers are busiest at the end of any month and in the summer.
Wardrobes are included as equipment on the truck at no extra charge. A wardrobe is a portable closet that can hold approximately three linear feet of clothes. When scheduling your move, tell us the number needed to be sure enough wardrobes will be on the truck.
Yes, except the items that will break or spill.
