At Customer’s request, D2D will deliver reasonable packing materials to your residence for packing your possessions.
Boxes not supplied by D2D used by the Customer for storage will be charged based upon the dimensions of D2D boxes, using the largest dimension of the nonconforming box to determine its comparable size to determine the applicable charge. Heavy boxes (boxes weighing over 50 pounds) will be charged a 50% surcharge at the sole discretion of D2D.
In the event a customer receives packing materials and wishes to cancel the service, D2D is not required to “buyback” the materials. If a client chooses to cancel their pickup time for storage, they are forgoing the ability to return any unused packing materials and will be required to pay for those materials in full.
Pickups will typically begin the weekend prior to the first day of final exams and end on the last day of the weekend following finals for a given school unless otherwise noted on the D2D Website,www.dorm2dorm.com, (the “Pickup Period”). A pickup falling outside of the Pickup Period will be subject to D2D’s prevailing fee for pickups outside of the Pick – up Period, as such additional fee is set forth on the D2D Website (Out of Window).

The D2D representative will verify your identity by asking you to produce an acceptable form of picture identification, and then transport the boxes containing your personal belongings to a storage facility.
In the event that Customer is unable to be present during the Pickup Window or if the pickup location changes, the Customer must provide notice to D2D 24 hours prior to the Scheduled Pickup Date.
