Services to the students included the pickup of their boxes direct from the dorms, which were then transported to our secured warehouse for the summer. When the summer winds down, we will be meeting each student with their boxes before the new school year begins.
Noted Georgetown University freshman Abagail C, “This service is great! I am from New Jersey and don’t have room in my Civic for all my items. I will definitely use Olympia again.”
At American University, Olympia assisted with the removal of old dorm furniture at Letts Hall. 120 rooms were cleared and prepped for a much-needed renovation this summer. All the furniture is destined for Haiti, where it will be used in schools, churches, and hospitals.
As for special projects, Olympia is proud to assist Bentley University this year with their Give ‘N Go program. Olympia is helping to collect unwanted items from departing students and deliver them to local charities.
Howard University, located in Washington DC, first hired Olympia Moving & Storage in April 2012 for a small project on their NE campus. Since then, Howard University has used our services to remove old furniture from eight dormitories.
In August, we were called in to remove the contents from over 600 dorm rooms across the campus. After twelve trailer loads and working non-stop through three very hot days, Howard’s dorms were cleared and ready for some much needed remodeling.
More recently, Howard hired Olympia Moving to come back to their campus and empty an additional 200 dorm rooms. We were asked to accomplish the task in a two day window and on short notice. Howard’s campus staff was supposed to be taking a much needed vacation, but was asked to come in. Remarked one staff member, “I wasn’t too happy about having to work today, but when I saw Olympia arrive to work on my building, I knew it would be a short day.” Once again, we completed a large project under budget and before deadline.
As the fall semester approaches, Olympia is gearing up for another year of moving students into their dorms. Move-in day is exciting and hectic, but Olympia helps to ensure the process goes smoothly. This year we’ll be helping students move in at Northeastern University, Boston College, and numerous others. It will be a big relief for many parents to see an Olympia crew member ready to help them unload when they pull up to their child’s dorm!
Olympia has also worked with College Boxes for the past decade. At the end of every school year, Olympia picks up thousands of student boxes from dorm rooms and keeps them in our storage facilities for the summer. When the students return for the fall semester, they will find their boxes waiting for them in their new dorm room, already delivered by Olympia.
Best of luck to all the Boston and DC area students for a successful fall semester! Study hard!
