Boxes | Shipping | Storage


Uncle Marty’s is your end-of-semester headquarters for boxes, shipping, and storage.

All of our boxes are shipping boxes, so they’re much stronger than those weaker “moving” boxes you might see at the big box stores. And our prices are great! We’ve just had five pallets of crisp, new boxes freshly delivered … so come check out our box mountain and get what you need for May move-outs.

Our storage rates are unbeatable at just $10 per item per month. (An item is a box, bin, suitcase, or any self-contained unit up to 50 pounds.) We keep our rates simple so you’re not surprised by per-pound pricing and added fees. And because we’re a shipping store, we can send your storage items anywhere you want whenever you need them! Pickup and delivery service is available, with full details here. We’re here year-round in Collegetown, so you know where your stuff is and can have full confidence that it’s well cared for.

We’re here Monday through Saturday, and will be open Cornell Graduation Day and Memorial Day.

See you soon!

Thesis Printing & Binding


Theses are due tomorrow!

We love this time of year, seeing the culmination of your studies and countless hours of tireless work poured into your ground-breaking thesis. And we love that you trust us to print that masterpiece and bind it to look as fabulous as possible before you turn it in.

The printing and binding process generally takes no longer than 10 minutes. We do it as expeditiously as possible while you’re here in the store. Though every year on the day theses are due, we always get a last-minute rush. So we advise you to come in as early as possible today and tomorrow to get your thesis printed, bound, and looking spectacular.

Let us take some of the anxiety out of your final push to complete your thesis; let us make it look as good as it reads.
