Pre-Arrival

How It Works

If you stored your boxes with us in May, you do not need to create a pre-arrival contract!
  1. Sign up for our Pre-Arrival Service
  2. You will receive a mobile barcode in an email from BRSS offering you the option to ship from anywhere in the US through our commercial FedEx account. If you wish to be charged the BRSS discounted shipping rate, bring the electronic label with you to the nearest FedEx location upon drop-off. If you do not wish to ship through our account, simply ignore the email. You can ship through any carrier you desire.

    If you are shipping newly purchased items from an online retailer (like bedbathandbeyond.com) or with a carrier besides FedEx, please address to:

    C/O {Your Full Name} {Your NetID}
    Big Red Shipping & Storage
    484 Ridge Rd
    Lansing, NY 14882

    If you are shipping from home, on the outside of boxes themselves please legibly write:

    • student’s name
    • dorm
    • room number
    • item count (1 of 1, or 4 of 5, etc.)

  3. Receipt and payment. After we have received your items, you will receive an invoice for all shipping, handling, and tax costs. Payment needs to be received prior to delivering your items.
  4. Delivery. When you walk into your room on move-in day, your things will have already arrived!
