Years of transporting my college age children’s school possessions back and forth and storing them untouched in MY GARAGE for 3 months during their summer break has created:




My college age children attend the University of Buffalo, the University of Vermont and the University of Delaware. After their initial send off their Freshman years, my college age children preferred heading back for their Sophomore, Junior and Senior years on their own.


However, their school possessions would not fit in their sub-compact vehicles. I would need to schedule my vacation time around helping them transport their college possessions back each fall semester. Then repeating the same schedule in the spring. I would load the second vehicle and sometimes pull a small trailer with their possessions.


It seemed unproductive and frankly expensive to make these trips since their school possessions sat in MY GARAGE for 3 months unopened and untouched. Their college possessions were just that and not intended to be used during their 3 month summer break.


Thousands of dollars were spent on gas, tolls, meals and even rental equipment each year. My college age children, young adults, enjoyed their independence and would have preferred heading back on their own.


Hence, NOT MY PARENTS GARAGE, LLC was established. Having the experience of packing and transporting their college possessions back and forth hundreds of miles each year and incurring thousands of dollars in expenses has created a QUALITY, PROMPT, PROFESSIONAL and AFFORDABLE locally based storage services company.
