Are there any preparations I should make before you pick up my things?
Yes. Please unplug, defrost and drain refrigerators at least 12 hours before pickup time. Please disassemble and secure bed frames as much as you can before we arrive for pickup. Please make sure dresser and desk drawers are empty and securely closed if possible.
Do you provide packing supplies?
Yes. We will provide all of the packing supplies you require. Once you have filled out a Booking Form through our website, we will call you to work out all details including when we can drop off packing supplies for you.
What methods of payment do you accept?
We have updated our service to a STORE NOW…PAY LATER system which means we will now collect payment when we deliver your items back to you. At that time, we can accept cash but we will also bring our portable machine that accepts VISA, MasterCard or Debit Cards. If you wish to make a payment before delivery day, you can visit our website, click on the Make Payment tab and process your payment through PayPal®. PayPal® accepts the following major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, and American Express. UniversityBoxes.ca does not accept personal cheques. If you wish to make payment on pickup, that option is also available to you.
What if I bring out more or less than I ordered?
You will only be charged for the number of items you store. There is no minimum or maximum number of items that you can put into storage. The number that you put down on your booking form is a guideline so we will know generally how much space we will need in our moving vehicles.
What can I do to make sure pickup runs smoothly?
Please have your items packed and taped up when pickup time arrives. It is very important to know that boxes that are too heavy or very difficult to lift will need to be repacked.Remember that the pickup time is our goal and we do very well at being on time but sometimes extraordinary circumstances arise and we may be delayed. It is best to be ready for pickup approximately 30 minutes prior to the designated time and approximately 60 minutes after the stated time.
