How does the service work?

It’s easy!

  • Order a School Shippers box
  • Tell us where and when the student will be going to/from school
  • We send you an empty box complete with labels, tape etc. and a specific pick up date
  • The student fills the box
  • School Shippers ensures the box is delivered to the intended destination

Select the service(s) you'd like to use. We'll send you the necessary labels to apply to your boxes well in advance of your pickup date. We will notify you with the optimal pick up date to ensure your belongings are at the school prior to your arrival. When you are going home, we will deliver the necessary labels to your school.

Can I use your service one way?

Yes. School Shippers offers flexible options. You can ship to school or ship from school.

How far in advance do I need to request the service to ensure my belongings will arrive at school in time?

We suggest placing your request at least 10 days prior to your arrival date. Once your order is placed, School Shippers will send you the materials you will need. School Shippers knows the exact transit time from your door to the school and will schedule the pickup accordingly to ensure your belongings arrive prior to your arrival.

How far in advance do you pick up when going to school?

Our goal is to minimize the amount of time you are without your favorite personal item(s) while ensuring an on time delivery. Transit times vary according to geographic regions. If you are shipping from home to a school within the same state it is usually 2 to 3 days. If you are shipping across the country, it could range from 5 to 8 days.

These lead times ensure an accurate delivery but also gives you plenty of time for last minute packing!

I just heard about your service and my classes start in 2 days, what can you do?

No problem! We have expediting services. Just call us at 315-692-0811 for a quote.
