Student Storage – The Details

We know that as smart students, you’re going to want to know the facts and figures behind college storage. Here are the basics:

  • Our containers are 8 feet deep by 7 feet tall by 5 foot wide and can hold up to 3,500 pounds-that’s nearly two tons!
  • Each portable storage container can hold approximately 1 – 1.5 rooms of furniture and belongings, including full-sized couches, refrigerators, and even a king size mattress and box spring.
  • SMARTBOX self-storage containers are made of durable wood so that the contents can breathe, but don’t think you’re going to have to worry about your belongings facing the elements while you’re packing up! All of our units have a weather resistant cover that’s good for all seasons.
  • The portable storage units are only six inches off the ground to ensure safe and easy footing when you’re entering and exiting the container-which is especially important when you’re loading up all those heavy textbooks.
  • The containers have one large swinging door that is secured with two butterfly clamps and has a sliding hasp built onto it that can hold a padlock or combination lock for added security.
  • SMARTBOX uses upfront pricing and accurate quotes before you move. You’ll never get hit with hidden fees or charges and you can even figure out exactly how much portable storage for college you’ll need with our online space estimator.

So, don’t worry yourself with college summer storage or how to get to campus as easily and affordably as possible-let SMARTBOX portable storage for college handle it! If you live or go to school in Maryland, Virginia or Washington, DC, call us today to get quote!
