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 create a reservation online. No credit card is required to reserve your space – we'll collect payment details when we drop off your packing supplies (approximately 1 week before moveout). You'll be able to specify your preferred pickup date and location when you make your reservation. Approximately 1 week before your scheduled move out, we will delivery supplies, if needed, to you. One day before your scheduled moveout, we’ll send a confirming email for your pick-up date and time.

Once we pick up your items, we'll store them in our secure facility. While you are away on break, you will create another reservation for you move-in location, date and time. Lastly, we will deliver your items to you on your scheduled date and time to your on campus location or off campus apartment*.

We do ask that if your plans change during the storage term, contact us to arrange an earlier delivery date, a longer storage term, access to your belongings, or to have some or all of your stored items shipped to you.

You can reach us at 585-482-8080 or info@rochestercollegestorage.com. For immediate assistance, please call Jeff directly at 585-727-8973.

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, carpet, bikes, refrigerators, microwave, bean bag chairs, etc) do 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.

Can I use my own boxes and/or pack my items in my own containers such as suitcases or plastic bins?

Yes, you can pack your items in sturdy new/nearly new boxes, suitcases, plastic bins and totes, storage trunks, duffel bags, plastic drawer sets, laundry baskets, etc. You can use whatever you prefer provided it is in good usable condition, taped securely closed, and labeled on three sides. We do not recommend packing fragile items in these types of containers. However, if you do so, make sure they are wrapped in bubble wrap and protected from the sides of the container. We do not cover any damage for items packaged in these types of containers.

What do I do if I need more supplies such as boxes or tape?

As soon as you realize you need more supplies, please contact us via email at info@rochestercollegestorage.com and let us know and we will make arrangements to deliver more to you.provided you return the boxes you do not use.

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