Campus Storage Instructions for 2018
Make sure to follow instructions closely!!
- After completing the sign up form place payment via check in the inter-campus mailbox of Henry Cutting, Box #3056 or Venmo @Campus-Storage.
- Sign Up Sheets and payment must be received by May 14th, or a $50 late charge will be assessed. If signing up by this date is not possible, be sure to make prior arrangements with Henry. Space fills quickly; so the sooner we receive your information the better.
- Campus Storage will confirm that we have received your sign-up and payment by email.
- The last day for actual storage pick-ups is May 22nd. We require a signature when we pick-up your belongings, therefore, you must be in your room for your scheduled pick up.
- We operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. The sooner the sign up sheets and payment are submitted, the more likely it is that there will be available space.
- As you will see on the “Unit Sheet”, the amount you pay will be based on how many units of space your belongings take up.
- A unit of space is an 18” x 18” x 18” cube, so different sized objects are assigned different unit sizes. For example, a bike is worth 4 units, a TV is worth 3 units, a 2-Seater Couch is 5 units, etc. Refer to the “Unit Sheet” to determine how many units your belongings will occupy.
- If you use 7 units or fewer, the fee is a flat rate of $85. If you use more than 7 units of space, the fee is an additional $15 for each extra unit beyond 7.
- Please make every effort to reasonably estimate the amount you will be storing. If you end up storing more units, you can pay for the additional cost via cash, venmo or check during pickup.
Packaging and Preparation:
- All items must be packed either in cardboard boxes or plastic containers; NO LOOSE ITEMS WILL BE TAKEN. Larger items such as futons and couches are fine as is. DO NOT STORE ANY LIQUIDS.
- CLEARLY LABEL YOUR NAME AND FUTURE ROOM ON EACH ITEM you store. Belongings that are not labeled will not be returned on time and are not Campus Storage’s responsibility.
- BE SURE TO USE LABELS THAT WILL NOT FALL OFF, RIP, OR SMUDGE. This helps us get your belongings back to you in a timely fashion, and saves you money.
- Campus Storage will not store computer monitors, towers, or laptops.
Campus Storage deals with nearly 100 refrigerators every spring. If you unplug your fridge the same day we pick up your items, it will begin to defrost and not only will your fridge be very moldy next fall, but it will get water all over the rest of your items in the storage facility.
***PLEASE UNPLUG AND DRY OUT YOUR FRIDGE MULTIPLE DAYS IN ADVANCE OF YOUR SCHEDULED PICK UP! WET REFRIDGERTORS WILL NOT BE PICKED UP AND YOU WILL NOT BE REFUNDED!***
- Items will all be delivered by the end of the day on the Monday before school starts. This is the end of the official student move in period, which begins on Sunday September 9th at 9:00am.
- School does not allow us to operate before September 7th, so that is the earliest day we can start returning items.
- Campus Storage has the ability to store the belongings of students who go abroad.
- The cost depends upon how many semesters the student is away.
- To calculate the cost:
- Away for one semester, multiply summer storage by two. For an entire year, multiply the cost for summer storage by three (summer, fall, spring, with second summer free of charge).
- For Example: $85 for summer = $170 total cost if abroad for one semester, and $255 total cost for the entire year.
- Cash, venmo (@Campus-Storage) or personal checks are accepted; make checks payable to:
Henry Cutting. You can make the payment on the day of pick up.
- IMPORTANT-DO NOT SEND CASH IN INTER-CAMPUS MAIL. If you wish to pay cash, you can pay on the day your items are picked up. Campus Storage is not responsible for payments that are lost in the mail.
- There is a $50 surcharge for checks returned “insufficient funds”.
