This approved storage program has been set up to meet the storage needs of Franklin and Marshall students. There is no limit to the quantity of the type of items, except perishable food items, to be stored.
It is strongly suggested that you use standardized packing cartons that will be available for sale at the Bens Underground beginning April 8th. These cartons are uniform in size and are best suited for packing items to be stored. The storage cost is less expensive than with non-standard cartons.
The summer storage (May through Aug.) charges are based on the size of cartons.
|ITEM||STORAGE COST||HANDLING COST||TOTAL CHARGE|
|1.5 small carton||$2.70||$5.35||$8.05|
|3.1 medium carton||$4.30||$5.35||$9.65|
|4.5 large carton||$5.70||$5.35||$11.05|
|Non standard carton||$2.50(per cubic foot)||$5.35||$7.85 (for a 1 cubic foot box)|
