We ship everything via UPS ground.
Our 18 X 18 X 24 large box weighing 55 lbs. costs on average $64 to ship to IL, $70 to NY/NJ, $105 to S. FL, and $145 to CA.
We cannot give shipping quotes over the phone, as UPS applies strict guidelines regarding size and weight that impact the cost.
JPS ships everything IN BOXES. UPS applies overcharges to items that are overweight, oversized or unboxed (e.g. a suitcase or duffel). More important, unusually shaped items do not do well on UPS conveyor systems, and the container is not insured against damage, only the contents.
Boxes to most destinations arrive within 3 to 7 days of shipment. During busy seasons such as spring move-out, shipments leave Ann Arbor the next business day after we receive them. You can track them online using the number provided on your receipt.
During the busy moveout season UPS suspends its day-definite delivery guarantee.
If you want to use your personal account number contact UPS directly. We cannot bill things to your account directly.
