This one goes out to all of the students who are planning to use Dorm Room Movers to move out this Summer. We wanted to give you some insight into what a typical move out day with DRM looks like so that you know what to expect and how to properly prepare for your pick up / move out date.
Prior to day of pick up:
When you registered for our service, we hope you were able to take advantage of opting in to receive our complimentary supply kit. This kit conveniently contains 5 boxes and packing tape to help you pack your stuff into. Don’t worry if you were unable to receive a supply kit from us, as we have no problem with students using other boxes to pack with. What matters most to us is that your stuff is packed up and ready to be picked up prior to our movers arriving on the day of your scheduled move.
Day of pick up:
Prior to the pandemic, students had to be physically present for their pickups in order to sign off on each item being picked up. Due to COVID-19, we’ve introduced a new feature – Facetime via Zoom calls with our movers. Now, both student and mover alike are able to remotely verify and confirm the boxes being picked up.
Once the mover has arrived, they will initiate the FaceTime call with the student to verify and confirm their boxes. After this has been done, the process is complete and the student doesn’t have to worry about anything else.
With the use of this new feature, students can FaceTime from any location (with good connection) and conveniently build rapport with their mover(s). Most importantly, this virtual communication allows us to keep both students and movers as Healthy & Safe as possible by reducing the spread of COVID-19.
Post pick up:
Depending on your individual needs, Dorm Room Movers can either store your boxes in one of our climate protected and secured storage facilities or we can ship them to another location.
If you are returning in the fall, Dorm Room Movers can deliver these items back to you when school resumes at the end of the summer. If you are not returning in the fall, Dorm Room Movers can ship your boxes back to your new residence / address.
If you are not sure of your plans for the Fall just yet, do not fret. We can store your stuff for as long as you need and then deliver it back to you when you return. We can also ship your stuff to you whenever you are ready.
The extra benefits of using DRM:
Remember, although our company name has the word “Dorm” in it doesn’t mean we only help students who need to move out of dorm rooms and residence halls. We also service off-campus housing, greek life housing, and even off-campus apartments.
In addition to everything we’ve already mentioned, we will also provide you with up to $100 of insurance coverage for each item/or box that you store or ship with us.
At the end of the day, our main goal is to help you as efficiently and effectively as possible. Whatever we can do to ease your stress during this transition, we are here for you.
