During our Student Season (April – May, August – September), if you email or call us within 24 hours to reschedule your appointment, there will be a $100 change fee applied. There is additional time and labor involved in organizing your appointments for these high volume times and cancelling or rescheduling an appointment on short notice creates undue hardship for our team. Outside of our Student Season, if you need to reschedule an appointment please do so 48 hours in advance to avoid a fee.
If we cannot get in touch with you for your appointment and you miss us, you can email or call us to reschedule your appointment. You will be charged a $25 (for Long Island Schools) or $35 (for Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, or Bronx schools) service fee for the appointment that you missed. During our Student Season (April-May, August-September), if you miss a scheduled appointment we will do our best to try and reschedule you but please understand that we are operating at a high volume during these times and we might not be able to accommodate your new requested date. You will have to be flexible with the date and time that we can provide you.

FAQS for Renting a Refrigerator or Microwave +
Rentals are covered for the whole term if the damage is due to a mechanical or manufacturing error. Please call our office at 1-855-NYBOXCO if an issue occurs and we will discuss a remedy. If you damaged the rental due to your own negligence, then you will be responsible for the cost of replacing your rental. Any exterior or interior damage made to the rental while in your possession which we determine deems the rental unfit for future use will incur a fee equal to the purchase of the rental.
You can cancel your rental up to 48 hours advance notice without incurring any fees. If you cancel your order any time after that, you will incur a processing fee of $10. We process payment for the entire term on the day that we deliver your rental. The rental fee is non-refundable if you decide to cancel your rental once we have already delivered it. If you decide to cancel your rental after its been delivered, you will not be able to receive a refund and will be charged a pick-up fee of $25 (for Long Island Schools) or $35 (for Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, or Bronx schools) for us to come collect the rental.
We do not reimburse for any items that are lost or damaged due to a mechanical or manufacturing error in your rental. Since these kinds of defects are out of our control we cannot be responsible for any loss of items that occur due to a mechanical or manufacturing error.
The price of your rental is good for 2 semesters, which covers the day you move in until the day you move out each year. Please contact us at 1-855-NYBOXCO or email@example.com if you need to keep your rental over the summer or if you only want to rent a refrigerator, microwave or combo for only 1 semester.

Box&Co Fees and Billing +
We will pick up or deliver to you as many containers or items at one time (anything one man can reasonably carry) as you need. Your initial delivery of empty containers and pick-up of full containers and items are complimentary. After that, any deliveries or pick ups will incur a charge of $25 for Long Island and $35 per appointment for Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and Bronx. If you place an order of 25 items, you may incur an additional surcharge.
If you retrieved a container from Box&Co and decide that you don’t need to store that container anymore, you will have to set up a pick up appointment with our Box Team and they will retrieve the empty container. This pick up will be treated like any other drop off or pick up and a $25 (Long Island) or $35 (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx) fee will be charged to that account.
If you don’t set up an appointment within two weeks and you decide to not return the empty container to storage, you will be charged a flat fee for the purchase of each container you have.
If you know in advance that you may be late making a payment for any reason, please contact us so that we can work with you. If you don’t reach out to us, you will be charged a penalty fee for late or missed payments.

No worries!! It’s just a $25 (Long Island) or $35 (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx) flat delivery/pick up fee for as many containers/items as you want.
We accept all major credit cards as payment. You will have to provide your credit card information at the time you place your order. Your account will then be automatically charged on a monthly basis.
Our initial drop off of containers and pick up of your items is free for all new customers. Pick up and delivery is available 7 days per week.

We have a minimum storage requirement of $20/month. You can storage as many or as little items as you want as long as it reaches the $20 minimum. If you store items for less than $20/month, a surcharge will be added to your order to meet the $20/month minimum.
Box&Co does its very best to make storing your stuff affordable! Our minimum monthly fee is MUCH less than renting a self-storage unit where the space may not be utilized 100%. Other companies that offer pick up and delivery service, charge you extra money when they bring more than 1 team member to your appointment or charge you by the hour. We only charge a flat rate for pick ups and deliveries. Those companies also still require you to rent a unit, even if you don’t need all of that space! With Box&Co, you only pay for the number of items that you have in storage!
Your billing and account information can be updated through your account on the Box
The delivery rate will increase if you live in a walk-up style apartment. After your complimentary initial drop off of empty containers and pick up of packed items, we will add a $25 surcharge to any additional pick ups and deliveries. This charge is necessary because this type of home requires additional members of our Box Team and adds extra time to your appointment.

Yes! You can request whichever containers you want. There is a $25 (Long Island) or $35 (Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, Bronx) delivery fee when you send a request for delivery of your containers. If I return containers but leave others in storage does my monthly fee decrease? Yes. You only pay for the space you use. If you reduce the number of containers you are storing, then your monthly fee will be reduced accordingly. We have a minimum storage requirement of $20/month, so if you take items out of storage and it lowers your monthly cost to less than $20/month, a surcharge will be added to meet the $20/month minimum. If I have my things returned in the middle of my billing cycle, do I have to pay for the entire month? We do not prorate months for storage. If you have your containers delivered out of storage before the next billing cycle you will not be charged for the following month.
