Calculate Your Storage

Columbia College Chicago is a liberal arts college that is not short on spitting out creativity. Notable alumni include actor Scott Adsit from 30 Rock, Aidy Bryant from Saturday Night Live, Wheel of Fortune host Pat Sajak, and cinematographer Janusz Kaminski. Heck, even Kanye West was a student at Columbia for a short time!

While Columbia College has plenty to boast about, it is still lacking something that most colleges are: adequate student storage solutions. Thankfully, Doorage is here to help!

What Is Doorage?

Doorage is a pick-up and drop-off storage service. You can think of us like Uber or Lyft for storage. Rather than boxing up your storage items and finagling your way to a storage unit via public transportation or a 1999 Toyota Corolla, we transport your storage items for you.

Here’s How It Works

When you choose us as your Chicago student storage solution, you’ll begin by using our nifty online storage calculator. Here, you can tell us roughly about how many storage boxes you’ll need and of which size. You can also estimate the cubic footage of any non-boxable items like futons, bicycles, or furniture.

Then, we’ll drop off any storage bins you need for free, as well as any packing materials you order through us. Next, you can take up to two weeks to pack everything up and then schedule a pick-up at your convenience. Our team will meet you at your address and load everything into our trucks. We’ll transport your items to our secure storage facility where they’ll stay until you want them back. When that time comes, simply schedule a delivery and we’ll bring your stuff to you.

You never have to rent a moving truck or make multiple trips to and from your storage unit. Just let us know that you’re looking for student storage in South Loop and we’ll handle the rest!

Choose Doorage Today

Whether you need short-term summer storage in Chicago or you’ll be gone for an entire semester or longer, we are happy to provide you with the Columbia College Chicago student storage solutions you need!
