Welcome to Campus Storage

Campus Storage provides thousands of college students with an easy, affordable solution to moving. Each year, college students scramble to ship or store dorm items that must be moved during summer months or periods of leave for study abroad.

Campus Storage provides a complete storage service by picking up items directly at student’s doors when the student specifies, storing the items in a secure location while the student is away, and returning the items to the student when he/she returns to campus. Dates of pick-up and drop-off are determined by the student.


For students, by students.

Middlebury Campus Storage is a student-run service that provides students with an easy, affordable solution to storage. Every year students scramble to find a place to store their items during the summer months or periods of leave for study abroad. Look no further – Middlebury Campus Storage provides a complete storage service by picking up items directly at student’s doors when the student specifies, storing the items in a secure location while the student is away, and returning the items to your new room before you return to campus.

See below instructions for 2014. Please make sure to read and follow these instructions closely.

  1. After printing out and filling in the entire packet, place it along with payment via check in the inter-campus mailbox of George Ordway, Box #4166. Please keep this sheet and the filled out Customer Unit sheet for your records.
  2. Packets and payment must be received by May 11th, or a $50 late charge will be assessed. If signing up by this date is not possible, be sure to make prior arrangements with George. Space fills quickly; so the sooner we receive your information the better.
  3. Campus Storage will confirm that we have received your completed packet and payment by email.
  4. The last day for actual storage pick-ups is May 20st. We require a signature when we pick-up your belongings, therefore, you must be in your room for your scheduled pick up.
  5. We operate on a first-come, first-serve basis. The sooner the packet and payment are returned to us, the more likely it is that there will be available space.

Unit Plan/Labeling:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. If you use 7 units or fewer, the fee is a flat rate of $80. If you use more than 7 units of space, the fee is an additional $14 for each extra unit beyond 7.
  4. 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 or check during pickup.

Packaging and Preparation:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Campus Storage will not store computer monitors, towers, or laptops.
IMPORTANT: 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 refrigerators will not be picked up and a refund will not be made available.

Return:

  1. Items will all be delivered by the end of the day on the Sunday before school starts. This is the end of the official student move in period, which begins on Saturday September 6th at 9:00am.
  2. If you plan to return to school before the official move-in date you must let Campus Storage know when you sign up. The majority of items will be delivered Saturday September 6th, and Sunday September 7th, but we will do our best to accommodate for specific situations.
  3. School does not allow us to operate before September 6th, so that is the earliest day we can start returning items.

Study Abroad:

  1. Campus Storage has the ability to store the belongings of students who go abroad.
  2. The cost depends upon how many semesters the student is away.
  3. 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: $80 for summer = $160 total cost if abroad for one semester, and $240 total cost for the entire year.
  4. Students must make these arrangements with Campus Storage at sign-up.

Payment:

  1. Cash or personal checks are accepted; make checks payable to: George Ordway
  2. IMPORTANT-DO NOT SEND CASH IN INTER-CAMPUS MAIL. If you wish to pay cash, contact George to make arrangements. Campus Storage is not responsible for payments that are lost in the mail.
  3. There is a $50 surcharge for checks returned “insufficient funds”.

Q: How do I know my items will be safe?
A: Items are stored together in large, watertight storage containers. Containers are transported to a secure storage location off-campus during summer/semester months. Storage locations are enclosed and monitored to prevent break-in. To reduce risk of damage during the moving process, be sure to pad your items generously.

Q: Where is the storage location and can I access it during the summer/semester?
A: Storage locations are always in close proximity to individual campuses. Access to storage containers is denied to maintain proper security, so plan to store for the duration.

Q: What if I need to add to my list of items at the last minute?
A: Please make every effort to reasonably estimate the amount you will be storing. We secure our storage facility prior to taking possession of your items and it can be difficult to make changes. You may make changes to your item list; however, although we do our best to work with every customer, we cannot guarantee late changes.

Q: What if I have an item that cannot fit in a box and is not on the unit list?
A: Email us at george@campusstorageonline.com to determine whether you have an unstoreable item.

Q: What if I don’t know where I will be living when I return to campus?
A: This is fine. Please email george@campusstorageonline.com when you know where you will be living and when you will be returning. The earlier you let us know, the easier it will be for us to accommodate your request. There is an additional $20 charge if you fail to establish a drop-off date and location 14 days prior to your requested drop-off.

Q: What if one of my items is lost or damaged?
A: Campus Storage, Inc. works with each student to ensure that all items are returned in the condition that they were originally stored. Items are stored under the conditions of the waiver that is included in the sign up packet. If an issue arises, please email us at george@campusstorageonline.com and we will address the problem immediately.

Q: How do I know when I am registered?
A: You will be sent a confirmation email with your specific information. Please save this email for your records.

Q: What if I need to make changes to my account?
A: You may make changes to your account at any time by emailing george@campusstorageonline.com. However, late changes may carry a penalty.
