Full-service storage at self-service prices.

Renting a typical Bloomington storage unit is not as easy or cheap as it seems. You will need to buy supplies, rent (and drive) a moving truck, rent moving dollies, and physically load and unload everything on your own.

...and don't forget, you're going to have to do that again when it's time to move back in.

There's a better way.
Unlike a storage unit, Guys and Dollies is full-service Bloomington storage, which means that we meet you at your room and handle the lifting as well as the truck and equipment rentals.


Only pay for the space you use!

For storage in Bloomington, Guys and Dollies charges by the item, so you just have to add up what items are storing. Put as much or as little as you need into storage, and only pay for the space your items are taking up. Don't pay for a large, expensive Bloomington storage unit when you are only going to use half the space!


It's easy: $55 + Items

March 2020 UPDATE: Due to the changes in the University schedule, we have added an additional fee to cover the extra 1-2 months of storage this term. For appointments occuring before April 15, a second base storage charge ($55) will be added to each invoice to help cover additional costs of these changes. We appreciate your understanding as we work to service everyone!

Abroad/Long-Term Storage

We split the year into three terms: first semester, second semester, and summer. Each one of these terms is billed separately based on the items in storage. Invoices are generated at the beginning of every term, and the storage rates for each term are the same as our summer rates. Discounts are available for long-term storage of 1 year or more, please email customer service for details. More information is available on our abroad storage and long-term storage pages. Please let the movers know if you are planning to store for both summer and fall sessions during pick-up.

Other Charges

Guys and Dollies takes pride in not charging "rescheduling", "cancellation" or "out of window" fees more than 24 hours in advance. However, the following charges may be applied:

Refrigerator defrost charge - $50 - Defrosting refrigerators is extremely time consuming and costly in organization. In addition, wet and leaking refrigerators can damage to other customers belongings and equipment. Please start to defrost and dry your fridge at least 48 hours ahead of time. Fridges with a lot of ice may need as long as 4 days. Similarly, this fee will be charged for refigerators that have not been cleaned of food.

We will not be charging refrigerator defrost fees for storage appointments in the next month or any packing appointments. We understand that students and parents have not been able to properly defrost these appliances with the time allotted. If it is possible, to help movers and the warehouse, please continue to unpug your applicances as far ahead of time as possible.


Multiple Pick Up and Multiple Delivery(if your storage items are to be picked up or delivered to two or more separate locations) - $25 for each new location

Late Payment - All invoices are due 30 days after the posting date or before delivery, whichever is first. After 30 days, a $10 late payment fee is automatically added. Additional late payment fees are automatically added every 30 days past due.

Unreturned Boxes - If any boxes are not used, they need to be returned to the movers during pick up. All unreturned and unused boxes will cost $5.
