Our Founders started as undergrads at Washington University in St. Louis, where they purchased a small storage and shipping business called UTrucking to help students move in and out on their campus. Running a business full time while in college was definitely tough at times, but they also knew they had promises to keep to every customer who chose their service. 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. So when they graduated and sold that business on to other WashU students, they knew they had to share the experience. College Truckers started in late 2014, providing students across the country the opportunity to start, manage, and grow their own branch of College Truckers on their campus.
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.
