The 7 Benefits of Portable Storage Containers

1. We bring them to you—no moving truck necessary.

The first, and possibly greatest, benefit of portable storage containers is that we’ll bring them to you! You don’t have to rent an expensive moving truck or unpack and repack your belongings. We’ll schedule your delivery at a time that’s convenient for you, and then all you have to do is load up your belongings—the rest is up to us. And if you need help packing or load, we also offer a wide range of moving services to help!

2. You only have to pack once.

With SMARTBOX portable storage containers, you only have to pack once. You don’t need to carefully and safely load the truck only to unpack it and meticulously pack everything into the storage unit once you arrive. When you have a portable storage containers, you are one and done.

3. We’ll pick up your storage containers when you’re ready.

Whenever you’re done packing up your belongings, we’ll schedule a time to pick up your boxes and take them to our temperature-controlled storage facility or to another location virtually anywhere across the continental United States.

4. We combine moving and storage seamlessly.

At SMARTBOX, we don’t just do storage, we provide integrated moving solutions, too! Once your belongings are loaded into our storage containers, we can take them nearly anywhere across the continental US. Whether you’re moving into the town over or across state lines, our team is here to help. And don’t forget you can designate some of your boxes for storage and some for relocation, and we’ll take care of both at the same time!

5. Our containers are designed around you.

All of our portable storage containers are designed with you in mind. They are:

  • Perfectly sized – each storage container is 8 feet deep by 7 feet tall by 5 feet wide and can hold up to 3,500 pounds. They can hold approximately one and a half rooms of furniture and belongings, including larger items like refrigerators and king size mattresses.
  • Durable – our storage containers are made of a sturdy and durable wood that allows the contents to breathe, and they are protected from rain, snow, wind and more by an all-seasons weather-resistant cover.
  • Safe – the containers only sit 6 inches off the ground, making entering and exiting the units incredibly safe and easy.
  • Secure – each unit has one large out-swinging door equipped with two butterfly clamps and a sliding hasp that can hold a combination lock or padlock.

6. You will never be rushed.

Another important benefit of portable storage containers is that you will never be rushed. In fact, we recommend ordering your container a month in advance so you can steadily pack your belongings well ahead of time.

7. We can deliver your containers or have them ready whenever you need them.

Once your containers are stored with us, you can visit them to add or retrieve items whenever you need to. It’s as easy as picking up the phone and setting up an appointment. We’ll have your portable storage container ready for you upon arrival. Or if you’re ready for your boxes to be delivered, we can take them nearly anywhere in the continental US.
