Calculate Your Storage

Northwestern University has campuses in both Evanston and Chicago. Luckily for you, your one-stop-shop-where-the-storage-don’t-stop caters to both. Doorage is happy to be your Northwestern University student storage provider while you’re off studying abroad, advancing your academic career, or capitalizing on three months of rent-free living in your childhood bedroom over the summer. Whatever your reason is for needing student storage, we’ve got you covered.

What’s Doorage?

Good question. Doorage is a pick-up and drop-off storage service. In short, it basically means we’re Lyft or Uber for your storage. Let us know where you are, we’ll pick up your storage items, keep them safe, and bring them back when you need them.

The Details

When you decide to choose us for your Chicago or Evanston student storage, you can begin by using our storage calculator to determine roughly how much storage space you’ll need. This is both in terms of traditional storage bins as well as any non-boxable items like futons, refrigerators, bicycles, paddleboards, and the like.

Then, we’ll drop off any boxes you need and you can take up to two weeks to pack them up. Once you’re all packed, schedule a pick-up and our team will come by and load your storage boxes and any other items into our truck. We’ll then transport your storage to our secure warehouse where it will stay until you need it back.

When you want your stuff back, just schedule a delivery and we’ll meet you at your door with whatever you need.

Why Northwestern Students Love Our Student Storage

Whether you’re looking for student storage in Evanston or Chicago, you can depend on Doorage to be there for you. When you use our student storage program, you’ll have the chance to win a $500 gift card to your school’s bookstore. Sure, that might only cover the cost of a textbook or two, but if you happen to sell the gift card to a freshman for cash, we won’t judge.

You’ll also be happy to know that with Doorage, you only pay for the exact volume of space you use in our warehouse. That means you’re not stuck paying for a half-empty storage container. We have flat-rate pick-up and drop-off fees so you never get any unexpected charges, and you can store your belongings with us for as long or as short of time as you want to. To make things easy for you, you can keep track of everything you have in storage by logging into your Doorage account.

So, Northwestern students, what are you waiting for? Calculate your student storage space today.
