Guys And Dollies

Bloomington Storage And Shipping Pricing

Choose the Bloomington storage option built exclusively for Indiana University students!

It's not often that a full-service company gets to brag about it's pricing, but for less than the cost of your textbooks, you'll get the entire summer of storage plus:

  • Free in-room pick up
  • Free in-room delivery
  • Free boxes (24x18x16, premium* double-walled)
  • Free supply kit (tape, packing paper, markers, labels, tags, poster tubes, more...)
  • Free cancellation or appointment changes (more than 24 hours in advance)
  *Actually premium! We are seriously proud of our high quality boxes!

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 and dollies, and physically load and unload everything on your own. Let's hope you don't have stairs!

...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. Plus, we'll deliver unlimited free boxes and a comprehensive supply kit.

It's easy: $125 + Items

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 the individual prices of the items you are storing. Put as much or as little as you need into storage, and only pay for your exact items. Don't rent a large, expensive Bloomington storage unit when you are only going to use half the space!

Summer storage costs $125 Base Storage Charge plus each item's price (see table below example invoices). Storage prices are for the entire summer of storage and all orders include:

  • Free in-room pickup
  • Free in-room delivery
  • Free boxes
  • Free supply kit
  • Convenient 2-hour appointment window

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. We try to keep extra fees to a minimum, but the following charges may be applied:

Refrigerator Defrost/Cleaning 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.

Multiple Pick Up and Multiple Delivery Fee - (if your storage items are to be picked up or delivered to two or more separate locations) - $60 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/each.
