The Center cannot accept advance freight deliveries. Due to limited storage space, all freight, including packages, mail, etc., must be shipped to your service contractor/decorator and delivered to the Center during the designated move-in period. Any freight scheduled for delivery to the Center during move-in periods should be to the attention of your service contractor/decorator. The Center will not accept C.O.D. shipments under any circumstances nor will the Center accept responsibility for costs associated with freight delivery/pick-up during non-assigned periods. The Center will not be liable for the security of freight left in the facility, nor can we assume responsibility for the shipping of such freight.
