Moving and Storage

Things to do before you move-in.

Moving: Like it or not- moving is hard work!  Planning your move is one of the most important steps you can take to make your move-in day a success.

Moving can also be challenging to accomplish on your own. If you have no means of transporting your furniture and belongings it might be a sensible idea to hire a moving company. 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’s policies and practices.



Residential Services does not provide storage but works with College Butler to provide storage options to Penn students. If you are in need of summer storage, please contact College Butler via their website
