Boston Pack and Ship expands international student division to aid students between semesters, after graduation.
An international college student living in greater Boston faces 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 or are unsure where your future will take you after graduation.
Boston Pack and Ship recently expanded its International Students division to better accommodate the special needs of these foreign students.
We offer temporary storage space in a secure, climate-controlled facility, conveniently located in our Braintree, Mass. warehouse. While other storage facilities charge 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.
In addition to storage, Boston Pack and Ship offers special overseas shipping services, including:
One page introductory e-mail outlining the entire process – full explanation of all fees
- Preparation of all export customs documents.
- Door-to-port service – Boston Pack and Ship will pick up your boxes at your home or office. Delivery is to a bonded warehouse where you can pick up your goods or arrange for final local delivery.
- Consolidation of your shipment on a pallet – all boxes are stretch-wrapped in plastic and strapped to the pallet.
- Complete information regarding shipment – name of vessel, voyage number, date of departure and arrival as well as a booking number will be e-mailed to you prior to shipping.
- Complete contact information of overseas agent (name, address, phone, e-mail) to arrange delivery from port to final destination.
- $500 worth of insurance for loss on each box is included.
We offer these services at a far better price due to a special arrangement with an ocean consolidator freight service. And since Boston Pack and Ship puts you directly in touch with the agent at the port, you can arrange for shipping to your final destination with a local vendor—saving you even more.
If you know an international student looking for either temporary storage space or a less expensive way to ship their stuff, they can call (800) 400-7204 for a free quote.
