More Than Boxes And Tape
As a purpose-driven brand, Summer Pack-It eases moving logistics for students, and by doing so, we gift our customers with more personal time for the things that matter most.
Summer Pack-It was brought to life by a former Resident Assistant more than 10 years ago. The idea to offer a solution to tossing out reusable valuables, and streamlining the move in and out process came naturally, as year after year students and families alike were met with this continuous turmoil.

Frequently Asked Questions
COVID-19 and your move
We understand that you may have a lot of questions about our operations and what we are doing to keep our customers and our Pros safe. We want you to know that our top priority is your safety, as well as the safety of the Pros who work with us, and we are taking proactive measures to provide extra support in these uncertain times.
Here are answers to some of the most common questions about how we're handling COVID-19.
All Specialist have been familiarized with the hygiene and social-distancing practices outlined by the WHO and CDC. Outside of your move, all touch-points in the market are virtual, with no large team gatherings or meetings. The majority of our communication with customers and movers is digital, and we do not perform in-home consultations.
We are actively communicating with the workers on our platform to ensure they're taking every precaution to remain healthy and safe. This includes:
- Practicing CDC recommended hand-washing techniques and other prevention methods
- Requiring all Pros to wear masks while on the job
- Staying home if they're showing any symptoms of illness (whether related to COVID-19 or not)
- Cleaning and disinfecting the moving equipment
We're asking customers to follow basic protocol related to social distancing. This includes:
- Maintaining a 6-foot distance from movers and drivers as they work
- Refraining from any participation in the move
- Cleaning furniture that is being moved (before your movers arrive)
- Disinfecting items that have been padded and wrapped once they're unwrapped
- Disposing of all packing materials once the move is complete

However, as long as you have the tools and instructions, they will be willing to help (though we cannot disassemble or re-assemble equipment like ellipticals, large items like bunk beds, or electronics).
