Specialized capabilities

In an environment as diverse as universities, it’s difficult to find a labor team that can seamlessly execute across all departments. Our extensive project history allows us to provide expert knowledge and resources to ensure all your needs are met.

IT Support & Tech Moves: Our specialized resources and equipment can seamlessly relocate and set up classroom technology, computer labs, and disconnect/reconnect classroom technology. We provide electronic recycling to sustainably dispose of any old or unnecessary equipment.

Library & Book Room Moves: Professional services to pack, reorganize, and reshelve libraries, textbooks, and any other materials.

Lab Moves: Special-sized moving crates and carts to safely and efficiently manage unique contents and complex equipment.

Art & Music Department Moves: Moving equipment for art and music departments to transport supplies, fixtures, and instruments safely and securely.

Athletic Department Moves: Athletic equipment, apparatus, and sporting gear can all be stored and transported across campus with ease by utilizing our carts and multipurpose bins.

“Ordering, delivery, quality and condition of the crates and pick up was all flawless.”

Moving beyond crates 

Our School Moving Services division specializes in the planning, implementation, and execution of all University relocation, renovation, and student move-in projects from start to finish.

Strategy & Planning: We’ll develop a personalized plan based on your needs, objectives, bandwidth, and budget.

Pre & Post Move Clear Out & Liquidation: Complete disposal of any unwanted classroom furniture, supplies, lab equipment, and specialty items.

Technology Services: Our Certified Technicians will plan and perform disconnect/reconnect as well as electronic recycling for any campus tech move.

Caring for your faculty & staff

Moving is never one-size-fits-all. Moving across campus after new construction, renovation, or reconfiguration can be hard on support teams with limited bandwidth. We’ll work within your framework so we can take the weight off your staff and do the heavy lifting ourselves.

Saving Time: Our crates and equipment allow you to do more with less, and our labor team allows you to do nothing at all. Let us do the moving for you while your belongings and valuables are transported safely and securely.

No Trash: No boxes necessary. Eliminate a massive campus cleanup with our reusable crates and drop-off/pick-up system.

Reduce Injury: Eliminate the need for your staff to do heavy lifting with our trusted rolling dollies. Reducing your university’s exposure to workman’s comp claims, and potential injury.

Sustainable Approach: Reusable and sustainable crates means reducing your university’s waste contribution. Eliminate the use of cardboard with our eco-friendly equipment solution.

Specialized Equipment: We have various types of equipment to ensure your move runs smoothly, no matter the size. From documents and lab equipment to IT equipment/ odd-shaped items, we have crates to hold your every need.

Student move-in

Move-in day is a great opportunity to make lasting first impressions on your university or college’s clients. In a time when emotions and stress are very high, Rentacrate will make this day run much smoother.

Meeting Your Needs: We don’t believe in one-size-fits-all solutions. From bin rentals to protect and transport your belongings to a customized plan to meet your every need.

Bin Rentals: Accessibility to large bins means less stress for students, staff, and families. We rent crates to the housing department and drop-off/pick-up pre and post-move, eliminating waste and equipment losses.

Full-Service: If your move is too much to carry, let our labor team do the heavy lifting. From meeting families at their cars and unloading curbside to transporting bins directly to the dorm, Rentacrate is with you every step of the way.

Damaged Belongings: Cardboard boxes are flimsy and lack protection. Eliminate potential water damage and broken boxes with our sustainable crates that ensure your valuables are transported safely and securely.

"Using Rentacrate was the best decision we made while moving. Not only was the service quick and reliable, the crates were perfect for stacking and moving. Using Rentacrate saved us a lot of time and headaches!"
