West Lafayette Storage And Shipping Pricing

Choose the West Lafayette storage option exclusively built for 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 regular West Lafayette storage unit is not as simple or cheap as it sounds. You'll have to rent and drive a moving truck, buy packing supplies, and physically load and unload everything yourself. But, you're feeling strong, right?

...and don't forget, you have to do all that again for move-in.

There's a better way.
Guys and Dollies is full-service West Lafayette storage, which means that we meet you at your room and handle the lifting as well as the truck and equipment rentals. Oh yeah, we'll also deliver unlimited free boxes, and a comprehensive supply kit with everything you'll need to pack. Why haven't you signed up yet?

It's easy: $115 + Items

Only pay for the space you use!

For storage in West Lafayette, Guys and Dollies charges per-item, so you just have to add up the prices of the items you are storing. You can give us as much or as little as you want, and only pay for the space your items take up. Don't pay for a large, expensive West Lafayette storage unit when you are only going to use half the space!

  • Free in-room pickup
  • Free in-room delivery

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 charges as few extra fees as possible, but some situations are more difficult than others. We charge no change or cancellation fees more than 24 hours in advance, and no "out of window" fees. However, the following charges may be applied:

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

Multiple Pick Up Or Multiple Delivery(if your storage items are to be picked up or delivered to two or more separate locations) - $55 for each new location

Late Payment - All invoices are due 30 days after the posting date or before delivery, whichever is first. After 45 days, a $10 late payment fee is automatically added. Additional late payment fees are automatically added every 30 days past due.

Late Delivery Charge - Any items delivered after classes start in August will incur an extra $60 delivery fee, because they will have already been moved to our off-season warehouse.

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.
