Shipping Companies

There are many companies that offer delivery services that you can use to ship your items to Brandeis. Check the local Yellow Pages for carriers in your area. Be sure to check with your carrier before packing your items as restrictions on size and weight often apply. We recommend that you tag your items with two address tags: one on the outside and one on the inside. Purchasing insurance on the items is also recommended.

Labeling Boxes

Label each piece clearly with your name and address. Make sure to ship your items one to two weeks before arriving, as the beginning of the semester is a busy time for many carriers.
