Just tell us the address and we'll take care of the rest!

We want to make sure you and your items are prepared to withstand the challanges of shipping. We work hard to find quality supplies and provide a wide variety in our free supply packet.

Let us show you why we are the best option for shipping in Bloomington!
Storage? Shipping? We're flexible!
We handle both shipping and storage in Bloomington, so feel free to switch items between the two services at the very last minute. Sometimes it's tough to know the service you want to use until you finish packing. Just let our movers know at your appointment. We can even store your items and ship them later, just let us know how we can help!
Have an odd item? We can custom pack that for you!
Our Bloomington shipping service can provide custom packing service for items like TV’s, Bicycles, golf clubs, plastic bins and other un-boxed items. The charges for this service depend on the length of time it takes to pack and the cost of materials used. Contact your local Indiana University shipping office ([email protected]) for more details!

We recommend working directly with USPS for smaller items and FedEx/UPS/DHL for larger items. Please note that international shipments with any carrier require strict cataloging of package contents.
