IMPORTANT: Please refer to this schedule BEFORE making placing your storage order and any travel plans, and PRIOR to move-out day, as it may change slightly due to move-out demand and other local events planned during this period.

Before printing your packing labels, verify that your move-out pickup date is correct in your ZippyU account, and that you have ordered sufficient storage, such that each box/item has its own unique label (e.g “1 of 6”, “2 of 6” etc). We are NOT permitting plastic drawers to be consolidated (taped together), as they separate and become unmanageable. We ARE permitting single plastic drawers to have items stored in them, saving you from ordering as many boxes, but drawers must be securely taped closed in order to be accepted on move-out day.

Print 2 copies of your packing labels, placing a copy inside each box/item, while taping the other copy to the SIDE of your box/item. Arrange to use OSU’s large scarlet move-in/out bins to get items for storage, to your preferred Pickup location on your selected Move-out date. Reviewing the OSU campus map to determine your designated Pickup location and the table below, locate your designated Pickup time for your Move-out date, arriving early to avoid missing your scheduled box/item collection. We will be using large “Zippy Shell” box trucks or Zippy Shell Containers for move-out collections. If we have not listed a pickup time for your move-out date and location, or the schedule reflects “S/D only” (Special Delivery), you may select a “Special Delivery Request” for an additional fee ($99), capturing an available date and time range. Partnering with OSU Student Life, pickup locations are clearly indicated with tags on the campus map. Separate designators are provided for North, South and West campus locations.

Note: S/D = Special Delivery pickup available starting on 25-Apr through 3-May. Due to fewer expected move-outs for these dates, we are offering a flexible schedule based on demand. Please call/email with your location and desired date and time. We will do our absolute best to accommodate all requests. If a Special Pickup is required outside of published dates, please contact our office for options and instructions. If you desire a pickup on another date not listed above, select “Custom Extended Date”, and in the Time field capture the requested date and time. eg. “22-Apr @ 10am”. The Custom Extended Date option attracts an extra $100 fee, payable to driver in cash at time of pickup (ie. Total Special Custom pickup cost of $199).

Note: Students may elect to drop their storage items at ANY location on move-out day, if their assigned location time is not suitable. Alternatively, students may request a “Special Delivery” pickup for an additional fee ($99).

Be sure to check your emails and this page regularly for any schedule updates, as we continue to receive ZippyU signups daily that may dictate slight schedule adjustments at some locations, to accommodate additional move out requests. Move outs will be on a very tight schedule, so we appreciate your promptness at move-out locations.



Stay tuned….. this section will be updated once dates are finalized.  Please check back after 15-Jun. IMPORTANT: For students living off-campus (sorority, fraternity, apartment or house), please review redelivery options below BEFORE making travel plans to avoid requiring the Custom Extended Date option mentioned below.


All items will be delivered directly to Residence Hall rooms on 7-Aug. ie. PRIOR to students arrival back on campus. Simply select “On-Campus” when capturing redelivery Residence Hall info in your ZippyU account, which will default to “Free In-Room Delivery” in the Redelivery Date field, and we will take care of the rest. Be sure to capture your Dorm Name and Room Number. You don’t need to be present to receive your items, as they will be securely locked in your new room.


Option 1 – Select “Off-Campus” when capturing redelivery address information, and then select “Special Redelivery Request” in the Redelivery Date field. Next, choose from an available date in the Special Redelivery Date field, and capture a desired time range in the Redelivery Time field, which will be confirmed 2 days prior to redelivery date when all requests have been received. Ensure your travel plans accommodate being at your redelivery location at least 2-3 hours before or after your requested time. Special Redelivery Fee ($99) will apply. Once the redelivery route and schedule is established (2 days prior to redelivery), we will communicate our estimated redelivery time.

Option 2 – Select “Off-Campus” when capturing redelivery address information, and then select “18-Aug Free Delivery to U1 location” in the Redelivery Date field.  Note: This option requires you to collect your items on 18-Aug between 10am-12:00pm at the “U1” location (see OSU map – south side of Ohio Union). In the event that sporadic rain is forecast the night before redelivery, you will be allotted a designated time to collect items on 18-Aug, so please watch for emails from us. Since rain could result in damage, we discourage this option and reserve the right to remove this option if persistent rain is forecast, requiring students to elect Option 1 above with a future Special Redelivery Date, as it is impossible to support staged collection of items while raining, when students arrive in a random order to collect items.

Note: Students planning to live On-Campus, will have all their items redelivered directly to their new Residence Hall room – please capture redelivery Residence Hall and room details as soon as OSU provides these details over the Summer. Students planning to live Off-Campus not wanting to pay for Special Redelivery, may elect Option 2 above, noting the risk of potential delayed redelivery due to persistent forecasted rain. IMPORTANT: Redelivery info MUST be captured PRIOR to 3-Aug to avoid Special Handling charges, as all items for redelivery are physically sorted on 5-Aug. IMPORTANT: Any changes made AFTER 2-Aug will incur a Special Handling charge ($99), and will also require Special Redelivery service ($99) due to extra labor and handling.

No Special Redelivery is supported prior to Residence Hall redelivery, as unloading of storage containers and mass sorting only occurs 3-5 Aug, in preparation for 7-Aug redelivery to Residence Halls.  *** No pickups from our facility are supported. ***

If you desire a redelivery outside of the Special Redelivery Dates offered (16-Aug thru 21-Aug), select “Custom Extended Date”, and in the Time field capture the requested date and time. eg. “22-Aug @ 10am”. The Custom Extended Date option attracts an extra $100 fee, payable to driver in cash at time of pickup (ie. Total Special Custom delivery cost of $199).
