Affordable Portable Storage Units

August 22nd, 2012 - 10:54 AM

If you’re completing a move that requires both moving and storage, portable storage units are an excellent alternative. They offer the convenience of single load/unload door-to-door delivery, and the flexibility of loading/unloading at your own pace (U-Pack offers three business days for loading and unloading).

If you’ve begun getting quotes from some of the most familiar portable storage services, you may be under the impression that affordable portable storage units can’t be found. Good news! That’s not the case. When you’re moving long-distance, U-Pack offers a portable storage solution that typically compares in price with truck rental. Let me tell you a little more about U-Pack’s ReloCube®

What is a ReloCube?
The ReloCube is a metal, weatherproof portable storage unit measuring 6’ x 7’ x 8’.  You can see more about its size and how it’s delivered here. Basically, it’s the perfect size to hold a studio-size apartment. But, if you’re moving more than a studio apartment, no problem – you can reserve as many as you think you’ll need – and you pay only for what you actually use (I’ll talk more about that later). We’ll deliver the ReloCube right to your location in most cities, and it fits perfectly into a standard-size parking space (when you enter your zip codes in your moving quote, we’ll check serviceability).

The Cost of a ReloCube
As I just mentioned, when you select ReloCubes, you pay only for the number of Cubes you actually use – regardless of what you reserve. So, your cost is simply based on the locations you’re moving from/to, when you’re moving, how many Cubes you use, and how long you need storage. Of course, the easiest way to figure this out is to get a free moving quote. There’s no obligation, and it’s instant. Keep in mind that if your quote includes only the moving trailer option, you may be in a location where ReloCubes are not available. Just give us a call at 800-413-4799 and we’ll take a look at the portable storage options in your area.
