DATELINE: BRAINTREE, MA… As an international college student living in greater Boston, you face challenges the local undergrad or grad student doesn’t, particularly if you have to be out of your dorm or apartment by semester’s end. Then, you face the dilemma of what to do with your personal belongings over the summer. Boston Pack and Ship, small load packing and shipping specialists for the past two decades, created an International Students division just to accommodate the special needs of foreign students.
Boston Pack and Ship offers temporary storage space in a secure, climate-controlled facility, conveniently located in Braintree, Mass. While other storage facilities charge you a flat rate for a specific size storage room, Boston Pack and Ship only charges for the space you use. So, you’re not renting an 8-foot by 10-foot space if what you’re storing only requires half that.
“Moving in and out of a city apartment or dorm room is tough enough, never mind having to deal your stuff every year because you don’t know what to do with it between school years,” said Joe Fell, co-owner of Boston Pack and Ship. “Our new International Student division is specially tailored to accommodate the needs of the international students. That can range from providing temporary storage space to shipping your personal belongings and other small load items either back home overseas or to your next stop after graduation.”
Boston Pack and Ship specializes in shipments of less than 1,000 pounds—parameters that can cover a lot of different items. For students shipping fragile items like computer monitors, stereo equipment and other pieces, Boston Pack and Ship uses foam-in-place technology as well as customized packages and crates to minimize movement and dramatically reduce the possibility of damage during shipping.
“When it comes to moving, international students have very specific needs and that’s why we created this special division,” said Fell. “If by offering temporary storage and our small load shipping capabilities can make easier what can be an incredibly stressful process—managing your stuff between two residences in two separate countries—we’re happy to provide the service.”
Boston Pack and Ship offers multiple U.S. shipping options including ground, air, delivery to a terminal for pickup or inside delivery. International options include air or ocean with door-to-door or door-to-port delivery. Full declared value is available on both domestic and international shipments. Pick-up of items to be packed and shipped for delivery is made by appointment.
