Rochester College Storage FAQs

 

General Questions:

What does "Rochester College Storage powered by The UPS Store" mean?

The UPS Store in Henrietta & Victor storage services is called Rochester College Storage. We have been servicing area colleges for over a decade. Parents and students have relied on us to pack, store and ship items during college move-out and throughout the year.

We offer college students (and parents) an easy and very affordable way to store their college items in a secure storage facility. This alleviates parents from loading their car with college items that will sit in the garage only to be loaded back in the car a few months later.

What services does Rochester College Storage provide?

Rochester College Storage provides affordable storage for your personal items in a secure facility. We offer free curbside pickup and delivery to your on-campus or off-campus location, and we supply boxes, tape, bubble wrap and labels, which are included in the storage cost. We can also package and ship any items that you wish to take with you.

How does Rochester College Storage work?

Simply reserve your storage space by completing a reservation form online. No credit card is required to reserve your space – we'll collect payment when we drop off your packing supplies. You'll be able to specify your preferred pickup date and location when you make your reservation. We'll contact you to confirm your reservation and arrange a time about 7 days before your pick-up date to drop off the boxes, tape, bubble wrap and labels you'll need.

Once we pick up your items, we'll store them in our secure facility until the agreed upon delivery date. (If you don't know your return date or move-in date yet, don't worry – just let us know your delivery date once you've finalized your plans for summer storage. We will contact you in early August.) Please contact us if your plans change during the storage term and you need an earlier delivery date, a longer storage term, access to your belongings, or some or all of your stored.

If you need items sent to a remote location, we can help you with that. You will always be able to reach us at 585-427-8080 or rochestercollegestorage@gmail.com.

Packing / Supply Questions:

Do my items need to be boxed/packaged?

We prefer all items to be packaged properly. However, some irregular items (e.g. ironing board) may not need to be boxed. Larger items such as beds and desks do not need to be packaged. If you have a question as to whether an item needs to be packaged, please call us for our expert advice.

Are packing supplies included in the storage price?

Yes. Our storage rates include boxes (where needed), tape, bubble wrap and labels, as well as free curbside pickup and curbside delivery.

Can I use other boxes besides the ones provided by Rochester College Storage powered by The UPS Store?

Yes. You may use your boxes, provided they are in good condition and sturdy enough to safely contain your belongings.

Will you have extra boxes available at pickup time?

Yes. If you find that you've underestimated how many boxes you need, just let us know. We can bring additional boxes to your pickup or arrange to have them delivered to you before your pickup, if possible. If you store more (or fewer) items than indicated at the time of your reservation, your final invoice will be based on the actual number of items stored.

Storage Questions:

Can I store my electronics?

Yes, just be sure to securely pack them! The most common error made in packing electronics is failing to properly protect the contents within the packing container. When this happens, shocks received on the outside of the carton can pass through to the electronics, causing damage. You should consider the following suggestions when packing your electronics for shipping and storage:

  • Use the original boxes and packing materials to pack computers and other electronics to help ensure the safety of contents.
  • Use bubble wrap to fill open spaces and cushion your electronics. Make certain that boxes are securely taped and that your electronics do not slide, shake, or otherwise move around inside the box.

Can I store furniture?

Yes. Rochester College Storage can store your furniture and other miscellaneous items including microwaves, refrigerators, bikes, trunks, rugs, bookshelves, futons, filing cabinets, and more. If you don't find your item listed, note it in the comment box when you submit your form and we will provide a price quote when we contact you to confirm your reservation.

Do you have restrictions on the types of things that can be stored?

Yes. Rochester College Storage cannot accept hazardous materials, liquids, jewelry, cash, or other valuables. All packages must be packed appropriately and in accordance with our packing guidelines.

Do you offer extended storage, if studying abroad or out of town for an internship?

Yes. Rochester College Storage can store and return your belongings at any time of the year. Our pricing is divided into 3 terms:

  • 4/26 to 9/5 
  • 9/1 to 1/31 
  • 12/15 to 4/30

Can I access or pickup my belongings while in storage?

Yes. If you find you need access to your items before the agreed upon delivery date, please contact The UPS Store in Henrietta at 585-427-8080, and we will arrange to get them to you. Additional charges will apply.
