Short Term Storage
This type of storage is for temporary storage of university property not to exceed five business days.

Again, the types of property accepted are strictly limited. The base rate for this service is $75 per truck including 2 pallets, as long as one person and one forklift are used, plus $8 per additional pallet. This rate includes loading the vehicle that takes the property to the department. Rates will vary depending upon the resources needed to offload and onload the truck.
It is strongly suggested that Warehousing be contacted before directing a truck to the warehouse. Warehousing reserves the right to refuse to accept certain loads for cause.
