  • The ReloCube measures 6’ x 7’ x 8’ and fits perfectly into a standard-size parking space.

    A great solution if you’re moving from an apartment complex and your rule-enforcing apartment manager says you have two—and only two—parking spaces available for moving day.
  • You can reserve as may Cubes as you think you need, but only pay for those you actually use.

    Ideal if you’re not sure exactly how many Cubes you’ll need, but you want to avoid getting in a bind on moving day.
  • You can load your belongings and store them in the ReloCube until you’re ready for delivery.

    Helpful if you just started a new job and you'll be staying in temporary housing until you find the perfect home for your family.
  • The ReloCube holds approximately one room’s worth of furnishings.

    Great for graduate students moving across the country to start a new career. You’re only moving a studio-size apartment and know PODS® containers are too large (not to mention expensive), but driving a rental truck across the country isn’t an option.
