I am writing to express my pleasure in being a customer of SMARTBOX. You have a wonderful and efficient product but I have been most impressed with the quality of the employees. Everyone I have spoken with or come into contact with at SMARTBOX has been very helpful and oriented on assisting me. Iíve been particularly impressed with three of your colleagues --- Ayesha, Christian, and LaDonna. Each of these individuals has been the model of professional customer service. I have had multiple dealings with all three (multiple boxes used!) and I have enjoyed dealing with each of them on each occasion. My whole experience with SMARTBOX has been a very positive one and I would certainly recommend SMARTBOX to my friends and colleagues.
I wanted to again say thank you for working with us for a discount on the Smartbox. I also wanted to tell you that both of the ladies I have spoken with in the office and the driver who dropped off the box were extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. Great customer service is not always easy to find so I wanted to let you know that your employees are doing a wonderful job.
Selling Real Estate in a competitive market requires much more than installing a sign in the yard and putting an ad in the paper. Today’s sellers must show their homes in their very best light … and what that means is CLEARING OUT THE CLUTTER. The key to a successful sale is to de-clutter - making every room look larger and neater. When I first meet with potential clients planning to put their house on the market, I provide them with two business cards: mine and one for Nick Sage, Director of Sales and Marketing for SMARTBOX portable storage. SMARTBOX is the smartest, least stressful and inexpensive solution for sellers to remove and store unnecessary items. I recommend that every seller professionally stage their home. De-cluttering is the key to creating a comfortable and inviting feeling. SMARTBOX portable storage units allow sellers to pack their belongings with out being rushed, and then have the convenience of having the SMARTBOX picked up and securely stored until they are ready to have it delivered to their next destination. Thanks to Nick Sage and the professional team at SMARTBOX, I can offer every seller an affordable solution to assist them in “staging” their home. Another benefit is that this gives the homeowners a head start on the packing. Simply put, the house is on the market and the owners will be moving … get packing!

I arrived home last night from an extended Thanksgiving trip to be welcomed by your beautiful gift package of goodies from Harry & David – what a delightful surprise! In fact, as I told Gretchen in an e-mail late last night, I couldn’t resist immediately trying one of the absolutely perfect pears. It was a real treat. Your gift is a luxury I will enjoy over and over again. Thank you so much.
However, I am most thankful for your generosity of spirit, commitment to customer relations and “doing the right thing” that is evidenced by your kindness and thoughtfulness. With those core values as the culture of your organization, there’s no doubt you will enjoy well-deserved success.
With heartfelt thanks,
T. & M. Kitch
"We cannot speak more highly of the incredible level of customer service that we have received from SMARTBOX Maryland - beginning with Natasha advising us to the best value from among promotions you were offering at the time, to your kind assistance and advice during my warehouse visit and over the phone, to Michael's careful and helpful delivery and pick-up of the crates. Every step of the way, we have felt that everyone involved with SMARTBOX Maryland has gone beyond rote customer service to genuine and honest customer care. Since many of your customers are probably seeking your services during times that are stressful for them in some way, this level of service is deeply appreciated. And rare.
Thank you, Natasha and Michael for all your kind help in this process so far. And best wishes for your continued success in things. "
Nick Sage of SMARTBOX Portable Storage, performed a miracle for me and one of my clients at the very end of June, when all movers were having their busiest week. My client had arranged for U-Haul to deliver storage boxes to her house the day before settlement, but U-Haul not only failed to deliver the boxes, but told her in a cavalier manner that there would be no boxes available, tough luck. She begged, they promised to bring some later in the day, then they failed to perform again. We had a house full of stuff, an unmovable settlement date, etc. You get the picture.
I called Nick, asking if there was any way he could help. He couldn't deliver boxes in time, explaining that it was, indeed, the busiest week of the year, but he would see what he could do. To make a long story short, he sent a truck early the next day (settlement set for 5pm) with a crew of workers, and they loaded the entire house into the truck to take it back to the warehouse, where they were able to load the household goods into four boxes. All this without a contract (seller is signing the contract today) and arranged at the last moment.
There are no words to express the relief felt by my seller, her buyer, and both agents. Please tell everyone how wonderful this company is, and how accommodating and special Nick's service is. We had a smooth settlement, and everyone is happy.
"You should advertise more! I am so glad I came across your service when I did. I saved so much money by doing it myself. I will never rent a truck again. This is so much easier!"
"We are new to being parents of a college student. We had no idea how much time and energy it takes just to get her set up in the dorm room! When we moved our daughter out of the dorm last year, we had to rent a truck on the weekend. It was raining and we were miserable. This year we used SMARTBOX and it was a breeze! She was able to pack the unit and SMARTBOX picked it up. We were free to spend our time on more enjoyable things!"
Karen Brown, Admiral Farragut Apartment Homes Property Manager
"Thank you for your donation of six SMARTBOXES for the residents that were displaced by the fire on December 12, 2006. The residents had so many donations of furniture and clothing and had no place to store it. This was the perfect solution for everyone! Thank you so much for your generosity. Thanks!"
Pamela Wilson, Director, Chesapeake Bay Foundation
"SMARTBOX's sponsorship is a wonderful example of the cooperative partnership that is so important to help us meet the challenges of saving the Bay."
Jane Snider, Executive Director, The Summit School
"SMARTBOX truly helped us out over the last few months with our storage needs as we carpeted our main classroom building and completed a renovation in another building. Having somewhere right here on campus to store everything made it so easy. You are making a difference in teh lives of bright children who learn differently."
Scott Wilson, BBSC Equipment Manager
"I contacted SMARTBOX of Maryland and asked if they would be willing to donate some SMARTBOXES to the league for use during our baseball and softball season. The SMARTBOX storage boxes gave us the additional storage space we needed to keep our fields in top shape. If you have a storage problem and need additional storage space, I would highly recommend that you contact SMARTBOX of Maryland today and let their professional staff solve all your storage needs
Rebecca Neumann, Development Officer, Chesapeake Bay Foundation
"With the help of SMARTBOX of Maryland we are making significant strides toward our goal of a thriving Bay ecosystem, a healthy regional economy and a knowledgable constituency of engaged citizens. So, thank you again, we just can't say it enough."
J. Duval, Real Estate Agent
"It is the first thing I tell all my clients. Call SMARTBOX! They will deliver storage units right to you. You can de-clutter your house so easily and your belongings will be stored until you need them. When they do this, I know they are expecting me to sell their house pronto!"
"Moving became a family affair with SMARTBOX. I was able to pass on a lesson in self-reliance to my children. We put bedroom furniture in one, kitchen in another and so on. When they delivered them to our new home, it was a snap putting things where they belong. Imagine not having boxes and clutter sitting around for weeks after a move, and me with 3 kids!"
Betty Lou Pilkerton, President, Eastport Volunteer Fire Co.
"The Eastport Volunteer Fire Department wants to thank you for all of your past support and help."
Adel O'Rourke, Executive Director, Youth and Family Services
"All of the staff and Board of Directors would like to extend our sincere gratitude for your generous support. Your donation helps the Robert Pascal Youth and Family Services to continue its efforts to help those in need."
Faith Family Church
"Thank you so much for donating 3 of your storage containers to our church for our annual Tree Market! We were able to collect more items this year since we had a space to store them before the day of the give away. God bless you for your generosity and your willingness to help members of our community."
"I am in tears right now. Thank you so very much for caring about your customers during these tough times. You have a customer for life. It is so good to know that business owners still care about their clients. I appreciate so much the break you gave me. I cannot put it into words. God bless you!!!"
"Hey Gretchen, I think I had 4 boxes for tomorrow like today but we can only fit 3 in our driveway. So, please only 3 tomorrow again. I will also call you and thanks so much for your help. Also would like to tell you that your driver is very nice and helpful and careful. So, I will give excellent reference for you guys if ever needed and I will definitely use you again next year and recommend you. We've used ABF, UHaul etc. and so far you guys are our best! So thanks. Maria!!!"
