How Portable Storage Works

Portable storage is simple! SMARTBOX can accommodate all your moving and storage needs, including long-distance moving, temporary on-site storage, temperature-controlled storage, and more! All you have to do is give us a call and we’ll bring portable storage containers to your home or office. Then you can take all the time you need packing and loading your belongings—there’s no rush and no stress. If you need help packing or load, we also offer packing supplies and moving services.

Once your belongings are all packed up, you can either keep the containers on your property for on-site storage or you can give us a call to pick them up. We can deliver our portable storage containers to your new home or to one of our temperature-controlled storage facilities for safe-keeping.

When we deliver your portable storage containers, you can take all the time you need packing and loading your belongings in advance so you’re never in a rush. Then we can seamlessly deliver or store your belongings, depending on what you need, nearly anywhere across the continental United States.
