2020   " HYBRID"  PLAN for PORTABLE STORAGE.     (Thanks Jim)
Our covid-19 response to the end of an abnormal college term.

In regards to colleges and students variable schedules for return (May-June) to campus for their
belongings and in relation to strong social distancing plus the colleges guideline as to our physical
accessibility to campus. With lots of unknowns we all must be flexible and creative. We are open
to ideas that our customers suggest to meet their needs.

Our solution to this situation is utilizing our regular portable units as described above into a " Hybrid"
of storage options to meet projected scenarios of your needs during this time as follows:
1. Assuming that most students will return to campus with a family member in a family vehicle,
    you would load your belongings and bring them to one of our portable storage units.
2. Looking ahead to August to resume in person classes. Again, maybe with a family member
    and vehicle to transfer belongings from storage back to campus.....OR (if not) we redeliver
    unit back to you at your dorm.

How it Works and Pricing:

A. Spring/Summer 2020:
    We set out a unit ready a waiting for you at our N.Utica/Marcy warehouse location.*
    You load - lock -keep key and give us a call when done.
    At the end of the day we put your unit inside the warehouse for the summer.
* see map page for address
B. August/Fall (or beyond if classes are delayed).
    1. You return to warehouse to pick up from your set out unit, unlock, and unload, call us when done.   
    2. We re deliver your unit back to campus and assist to transfer belonging to entrance area
        of your dorm building.

Hybrid Prices *

1. Warehouse self drop off and pick up  $200.00/ 3 mos.  (save 100.00  off regular price).

2. Warehouse self drop off and re delivery,  $ 235.00/3 mos. (save 65.00 off regular price).

* with either option; should you choose one and need another we can credit or charge the differance. 

Beyond August - if classes are delayed we will convert to a month to month billing cycle,  starting
Sept. 1st  with the rate determined by dividing the initial multi month charge by "plan selected".      

    Our N.Utica/Marcy warehouse location for portable units has NO INSIDE customer accessibility
   due to units being placed in multi-rows and multi-stacked, plus our equipment storage.
   Generally once the unit is put away it is not disturbed again till end of your rental period. If 
   absolutely necessary, special arrangements can be made on a case by case basis for units to be 
   placed outside of warehouse for your onsite access. 
   The charge for this extra service ranges from $ 50-75.00 depending on how many other units
   and/or equipment needs to be shuffled to move yours out (Murphy's Law). There is an additional fee
   of @ $25.00 for weekends.  All "set outs" must be prearranged and are weather permitting.
