Storage Solutions for Empty Nesters and Home Downsizing

It’s not easy figuring out what to do with all of your extra stuff after your children have moved out of the house. What do you do with the bunk beds and dressers or the many accumulated science fair projects and report cards? Whether you’re an empty nester who’s ready to clear some space for a new home office or you want to do home downsizing to make your space better fit your lifestyle, SMARTBOX of Maryland, Northern Virginia, and Washington, DC can provide you with the perfect way to do both easily!

Portable Storage for Empty Nesters

When your kids move out of the house, they’re bound to leave lots of things behind—furniture, school papers, old clothes, and more—some of which you’ll probably want to get rid of, but there’s also going to be a lot you’ll want to hold on to. If you want to utilize your new space for a home office or a guest bedroom, you’re going to need a place for all of these important or sentimental belongings. SMARTBOX portable storage offers the perfect solution!

It’s easy—we’ll bring the portable storage containers to you and you can take your time filling them up with anything you’d like to clear out of your home. When you’re ready, all you have to do is give us a call and we will pick up your units and take them to our secure, temperature controlled storage facility. When you need access to your items, simply make an appointment and we’ll have your belongings ready for you in practically no time at all!

Home Downsizing for Empty Nesters

There are a lot of reasons why home downsizing appeals to a lot of empty nesters—some people feel like they don’t need as much space once their kids have flown the coop, there’s less house to clean and take care of, or it’s just time to relocate to a new place. Whatever your reason is for home downsizing, SMARTBOX can not only help you store belongings that don’t have a place in your new home, but we can help make your move easy, too!

When we bring your portable storage boxes to you, all you need to do is designate which units should go to your new place and which should go to our storage facility for safe-keeping. We’ll give you all the time you need to pack and organize and, when you’re ready, we’ll take all your storage containers to where they need to go! You only have to pack one time and make one trip to your new home – it’s a snap! No moving vans, narrow loading ramps, or stress required! Just moving made easy with SMARTBOX portable storage.

Why Choose SMARTBOX Portable Storage?

Our portable storage containers are eight feet deep by seven feet tall by five feet wide, so they’re large enough to hold a king size mattress and box spring, but compact enough to fit in a standard parking space. Each unit can hold approximately one to one and a half rooms of furniture and belongings and can accommodate up to 3,500 pounds— that’s nearly two tons! SMARTBOX storage containers sit only six inches off the ground, making entering and exiting the unit incredibly safe and easy.
