For the most strength, please tape the bottom
of your boxes with three strips acrross the
entire bottom of the box. One down the middle
holding the flaps closed, and one on each side
of the center tape. Repeat up to three times.
Make sure that boxes are properly packed and
do not exceed the recommended weight of 70lbs
When assembling your box(es), be sure the
box is tapped sufficently on the bottom, so
your items do not break through the the box
during pick up or delivery.
Use towels, clothing, bubble wrap, or newspaper
to fill box space as well as for picture frames
or glasses that may be easily broken. Wrap items
properly with these materials so that they can
absorb shock during the transportation of boxes.
If there are any items you think may be at risk
be precautious and wrap them up. If you have questions on how to pack something, please call.
If you are storing televisions, stereos or
computers the original boxes are recommended,
however you may also use CC boxes (if the device
fits) or other boxes if necessary. Also remember
to write "FRAGILE" on the box so CC employees
are extra careful with your expensive electronics.
Remove all CDs out of your player before moving.
Close all trays to your computer and/or stereo
and keep all cords tied so they do not get tangled.
Make sure all boxes are taped securely.
Trunks must be locked or taped shut to ensure
the top remains sealed to prevent damaged items
or injury to our employees.
Futons should be secured and collapsed if
Refrigerators must be unplugged and
defrosted three days prior to pick up.
This procedure will protect your property and
those around yours. Also, make sure everything
in fridge is removed, that the door is taped
shut and that all cords are wrapped around the
handle or attached to the back of the fridge.
Rugs/lofts should be bound or tapped securely
so that they do not come undone.
Bookshelves should have all of their shelves
removed and taped together with any bolts, nuts,
or screws. (these can then be placed in one
of your boxes).
ALL boxes/items must have Campus
Cardboard labels properly affixed to them
with your full name, CC#, and the total number
of boxes/items stored by Campus Cardboard. Be sure to have a label on all pieces of an item that is broken down or consists of multiple pieces (futon, bed, butterfly chair, etc.)
In order to keep boxes from being over worked
or broken, distribute heavy items into different
boxes..Do not put all in one, such as your books.
If storing books or any heavy items, wrap
if necessary, place them in the bottom of the
box, and surround them by cloths or soft items.
All heavy items should be placed on the bottom
of the box followed by medium and lightweight
Use the smaller boxes for heavier items and
use the bigger boxes for cloths, linens, and
similar light objects.
Make sure all boxes are packed so that little
space is left between objects. Use blankets,
clothes, bubble wrap, etc. to fill in the boxes
as best as possible. This will keep items from
