The yellow text takes you to more information about each service: it's important to know what you're signing up for!

But if you're ready to order, simply click one of the blue buttons at the top and begin the checkout process.

Porter Service: Fall Move-in = Send stuff to us in the month of August and we deliver it when you are ready to receive it–right to your room in many locations (check with your community manager, leasing agent, or house mom)

John's Moms  = A real, live mom and helper work alongside of you to unpack belongings and help you set up your new space; we also offer this service to help you pack up and sort for pick-up by JPS when it's time to move out again

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.

Pick-up = If you're leaving your summer space in 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, whether that's one day later or one semester later)

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

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.                                                  

What I like about John’s is that they do what they say they’re going to do when they say they’re going to do it and then they go away.

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 the peak of move-in season: August 24-31.    

Porter Service

Ship to us in pieces and parcels: we'll keep it all together for you until you're ready for one easy delivery . . . in most cases, right to your room.

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.

Convenient

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. 

Quality

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

Reliable

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. 

Owner-Operated

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. 

Local

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.
