Let's Put Your Mind at Ease

How Does Pricing Work?

Pricing for the Ship to School service is by bundle and is laid out on this page above. When estimating the cost of shipping per box to send back to us, it all depends on where you are located in the United States. The estimated cost for various mileages from our facility is listed below:

  • 0-500 miles: ~$40/box
  • 500-1000 miles: ~$65/box
  • 1000-1500 miles: ~$85/box
What Items Can I Ship?

You are welcome to ship nearly anything that you like with the exception of what is listed on these FedEx Guidelines. Additionally, our Storage Scholars boxes are designed only to handle up to 45 pounds, any boxes shipped heavier than 45 pounds will be subject to additional surcharges.

Where Are My Items Stored?

Your items are stored in a security monitored, temperature-controlled facility within 20 minutes from campus. We want your items to be safe just as much as you :)

WHAT FITS IN A STORAGE SCHOLARS BOX?

We wanted to help give you a feel for what a Storage Scholars box (22"x18"x18" 4.125 cubic ft) could store, so we spoke with some of our past customers… Here's what they said: “The Storage Scholars box fit practically all my bedroom supplies: my bedding, my toiletries, my two pillows, and my wall art” “The Storage Scholars box held my Nespresso machine, all my winter sweaters, and my bath towels.” “I fit 5 pairs of sneakers, 4 boots and 7 sandals in my Storage Scholars box. That's 16 pairs of shoes!” “I was able to put my blender, both my bedside lamps, my blankets and some silverware in my Storage Scholars Box!” If you are looking to ship the majority of your items to school in lieu of driving them, we recommend choosing "The Average Scholar" or "The Interior Designer" package.

How does a la carte shipping work?

After purchasing a ship-to-school package from Storage Scholars, you can add additional items a la carte from your favorite retailers! You'll be given a specific Storage Scholars facility address you can use while online shopping. After purchase, log back into your Storage Scholars account and provide us with the tracking number! You'll be charged by the item at the rate listed on your package selection.

ARE THE ANY DEADLINES FOR SHIPPING?

Yes, in order use the ship to school service, you must ship all of your Storage Scholars boxes and your a la carte packages before August 1st!
