Our Summer Storage Special

Jones Moving & Storage LLC is pleased to offer a Summer Storage Program specifically designed for RISD students! This program is designed to provide you with the best storage services available at the best prices possible. Details are listed below. Be sure to sign up in advance to store your belongings in the Historic Jones Warehouse located just one mile from campus!
This year, we will again coordinate with Residence Life to return stored items to the student rooms prior to your arrival in September. By signing up for summer storage, you are authorizing us to release your items in storage to a member of Residence Life. As always, goods coming into storage will be inventoried and checked off when being delivered back to the rooms. After sign up you will receive a confirmation email with payment options. All accounts must be paid in full to qualify for this early delivery.
