NIU Student Storage In DeKalb

Our student storage solutions make storing your belongings easy. Whether you’re going home for the summer, subletting your room while studying abroad, or simply have too much stuff to fit in your dorm, we can help. We can store just about anything from textbooks to futons to bicycles, and everything in between.

Here’s How It Works

Doorage is a pick-up storage option offering service to NIU students in DeKalb and the surrounding areas. When you get started with Doorage, you’ll use our handy-dandy storage calculator to estimate the amount of storage space you will need.

Let us know roughly how many boxes you’ll need as well as which non-boxed items you will need to store. Then, we’ll drop off any boxes you need as well as any other storage supplies you might want to order through us. Take up to two weeks to pack everything up and then schedule a pick-up. We’ll come by with our trucks, load up your boxes, and pack anything that requires special packing such as outdoor supplies, beds, and other large items.

Our team will transport your items to our secure storage facility where it will remain until you need it back. When that time comes, just schedule a drop-off and we’ll deliver your stored items to your address.
