Our founders met as undergrads at Washington University in St. Louis, where they purchased a small storage and shipping business called UTrucking. Running a full-time business while in college was definitely tough at times, but they were dedicated to providing the highest quality of service to their customers. This is what kept them pushing forward, and before long, a true passion for entrepreneurship, logistics, and the college market was born.
During their time at WashU, they helped over 5,000 college students move their stuff, went to a few classes, made some amazing friends, and had the experience of a lifetime. When they graduated they sold the business to other WashU students, hoping to share this formative experience. Not long after, they realized that they missed the business and decided to open up another one — this time, though, it was going to be nationwide. They packed up their bags, moved to New York City, and started College Truckers in September of 2014.
We offer a stress-free move for students around the country, and we do this by offering the most customer-centric storage, shipping, and moving service in the market. We've now served thousands of happy customers across the country under the College Truckers flag, and promise to always run our business the right way – by building honest relationships with our customers and taking care of their belongings as if they are our own.
