Typically, our arrival windows are 2-hours and are available throughout the day at most locations. The first appointments of the day normally begin at 10:00am-12:00pm, and the last arrival windows end as late as 8:00pm-10:00pm. Arrival window availability varies depending on location and date. Payment is not required until after your appointment and is not needed to reserve an appointment. If you notify us more than 24 hours in advance, we do not charge any cancellation or change fees.

For customers living on-campus in Purdue University housing, please check the supply delivery schedule to find out when you can pick up supplies.

After requesting supplies online, our West Lafayette movers will call within a week ( 2-3 days in the Spring) to see when you are available for your supply delivery. Customers living off-campus are also welcome to meet the truck in your car during the dorm delivery times if you do not want to wait for a custom supply delivery.

Our supply kits contain a comrehensive list of free packing products. We recommend that customers take more supplies than they think they need, and simply return extras to the movers at your appointment.

3. Pack your boxes and label your items

After the movers deliver your supplies, you will be able to start packing. To make moving go smoothly, we will accept almost any item into our West Lafayette storage facility. Give the movers things like full plastic bins and suitcases to reduce packing time. Please make sure to have everything packed prior to the beginning of your arrival window. You name must be listed on all items, but removable labels and tags (with strings) are included in your free supply kit. Due to very tight schedules, movers typically need to move on to the next appointment and cannot wait for extra items to be packed. Extra information can be found on the packing tips page.

That’s all you have to do before you leave campus!

Movers may show up at any point in your reserved arrival window, not necessarily the beginning. If you can't be at the arrival window, you will need to provide contact information for someone else than can be present (like a neighbor or roommate. Payment is not needed until over the summer, and customers will be given both paper and electronic invoices prior to payment.


4. Mail check or pay by credit card online

All open invoices must be paid prior to scheduling your delivery. You can make payments online 24/7 or during normal busines hours by phone or mail. Online credit card transactions are handled through PayPal, and no credit card information is saved for security reasons. When using a credit card, there is a 2.9% processing fee. To avoid this fee, please send a check through the mail. Storage invoices must be paid within 30 days of your appointment or prior to the delivery.


5. Reserve delivery arrival window

Delivery arrival windows can be scheduled online 24/7. You can also call or email the office for additional help during normal business hours. If you are moving in with roommates, we recommend scheduling your appointments at the same time, so that only one peron needs to be present. The first roommate to arrive on campus can sign for all of the deliveries, so that your stuff is waiting for you when you get to school!
