  • ONE LABEL PER BOX/CARTON
  • PLACE LABEL ON TOP OF CARTON TOWARD THE LOWER RIGHT CORNER.
  • TAPE OVER LABEL WITH CLEAR PLASTIC TAPE.
  • USE NEW BOXES ONLY, BOXES SHOULD NOT BE CRUSHED, TORN, OR OTHERWISE DAMAGED.

We recommend:

  • Ship clothes, books, non-breakable items.
  • Electronics, computers, stereos be brought with the student to minimize cost and potential damage if not packed properly.
  • Boxes be no larger than 24”x24”x24”, the size of a small end table, and weigh no more than 70 lbs.
  • TV’s, refrigerators, microwaves can be purchased locally and will be more cost effective than if packaged and shipped from home.
  • Ship via UPS to ensure tracking capability and adequate insurance coverage. BRING SHIPPING RECEIPTS WITH YOU. If boxes are lost, we can help you track them down with this information.
  • THE UPS STORE can help you package and/or ship your belongings.
