Busybody's Laundry = Sign up for laundry service and save yourself the hassle of competing for the washer & dryer or having to sit in a basement with your stuff so it doesn't get stolen. We pick up and deliver wash-n-fold as well as dry cleaning. And, by the way, Busybody's also offers maid service and beverage delivery.

Study Abroad/Pickup = If you're leaving Ann Arbor, our trucks can meet you and take your items to the warehousing for processing (packing, shipping, cleaning, or storing to re-deliver when you're ready). See our price guide to estimate storage costs from the time you leave until next fall.

John's Moms  = A real, live mom and helper work alongside of you to pack or unpack your belongings 

Move = Two men and a truck move you from one place to another within the UM area on the same day


"I want to use you guys to move out.

So …

how does it work?"

Who says you can't do it all? When it's time for a change of scenery, we provide a complete range of services so you can concentrate on what matters to you.


We sell boxes in three sizes, tape, tape guns, bubble wrap, and markers. Delivery within one business day is free.


We store boxes, containers, furniture, refrigerators, TVs, bikes, artwork, cars … you name it, we can store it.


We are a Top 100 UPS Authorized Shipping Outlet. Most deliveries arrive within 3 or 4 business days. 


We can pack your fragile or awkward items like electronics and musical instruments. We can also send someone to help you pack your entire room. You choose.                                                  

Intra-Campus Moves

We can send two strong guys and a van to move students from one campus residence immediately to another. Just not during peak of the spring move-out: 4/21-28.    


JPS is the only storage service that takes dirty clothing and bedding and returns it clean. We offer student laundry services year-round.                                                                                                                           


John's Pack and Ship has been serving Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan for two decades.

 As Michigan alumni, John & Michelle Kazanjian know first-hand the needs particular to Ann Arbor's campus.

And as parents of five daughters who have attended six out-of-state schools (so far), they also understand the stress of moving kids long-distance.

We often say, “We wish WE could call US.”

We’ve got three kids in U of M this year, and it would be impossible to handle without John’s!

Contracted by UM

The UM continues to choose JPS. We maintain strong, positive relationships with the housing department; they call on us to help students not only at move-out and move-in but whenever they face unexpected challenges.


JPS is located just a short distance from the University of Michigan. At move-out, we’re working on campus all day. During finals week, we also set up stations in selected dorms, serving students right in their own lobbies. 


We sell the best boxes, specially made for us. We professionally pack large/fragile/awkward items for safe handling. We even offer a premium packing service, John's Moms, to help students pack up their rooms


When we need extra help during our busy seasons, we reach out to family and friends and only hire people we know. You can trust our team to be courteous, honest, and willing to go the extra mile. 


JPS is a family business. We work side-by-side with our team. Most important, when issues arise, we are on the ground in Ann Arbor, accessible and attentive to the needs of students and families. 


JPS is an Ann Arbor concern, started by UM alumns: we are not a chain. We listen to our customers' ideas and take their feedback very seriously, as we strive constantly to improve our performance.
