WACO, Texas (KWTX) Moving out can be tough for college students, especially with final exams on their minds so two Baylor sophomores came up with an idea to lessen the load.

It's called Campus Crates.

Ryan Robinson and his friend started the company in November.

The two came up with the idea after they found it difficult and expensive to move out from their own places.

The company targets students in dorms.

They move their belongings to a storage unit for the summer, and drop them back off in the Fall.

"This time when they're trying to study for finals moving out is the last thing they want to worry about. They don't want to have to be concerned with alright where am I storing my stuff, how am I getting it there. I have to organize my friends so we can go together and it's convenient. We do it for them and we do it cheaper," said Robinson.

Campus Crates charges $40 an hour during the move using three people to move student's items.

Robinson says the company currently has more than 85 clients.

They hope to expand to other Texas colleges.
