Moving from one apartment to another can be challenging to accomplish on your own. If you have no means of transporting your furniture and belongings from your current apartment to a new apartment, it might be a sensible idea to hire a moving company. While there are a number of local moving companies listed below, they are in no way endorsed by the University of Pennsylvania or Off-Campus Services.

Before using any moving or storage company:
  • Conduct research and call several companies, giving detailed information about what services you are looking for.
  • Ask for written estimates to compare and costs and services between companies.
  • Make sure that you understand the company‚Äôs policies and practices.


The Department of Residential Services has an agreement with to provide storage services to both on- and off-campus students. Any contractual arrangement with is strictly between the Penn student and that company.
