How ReloCube Storage Works

June 14th, 2012 - 3:20 PM

ReloCubes® are so versatile! They’re moving containers and portable storage containers all wrapped up into one! They’re weatherproof, sit flat on the ground for easy loading and unloading, and they’re PERFECT for storage.

Here are the ways you can store in a ReloCube:

Storage at Origin. In the U-Pack® world, origin means where you are moving from, or the start of your move. Let’s say you are moving from San Diego to another state. San Diego is your origin. After we drop your ReloCube off, and you pack it up, we’ll store it at the ABF Freight service center closest to your origin (which in this scenario would be the ABF Freight terminal near San Diego). When you’re ready for delivery, we’ll add your destination address and deliver it right to your door. Customers choose storage at origin for a number of reasons: they don’t know the exact city they’re moving to yet or they’re staging their home to sell and need to move some furniture out early. Whatever the reason, U-Pack can make it happen.  

Storage at Destination. Destination storage is pretty self-explanatory, and it’s the method most customers choose. It involves storing your belongings at the service center closest to where you’re moving to. In our scenario, let’s say you’ve decided to move to Atlanta, GA. We can store your ReloCube at the service center closest to Atlanta. Then when you’re ready for delivery, we’ll deliver it to your new home.

U-Pack ReloCubes are Safe and Secure
When you use a ReloCube for storage, you’ll place your own lock on the Cube, and keep the key. Whether you choose storage at origin or destination, the ReloCube is stored at a secured service center.

ReloCube Storage Tip
Here's something to remember about ReloCube storage: Verify that there is a safe and legal place to deliver the ReloCube to while it’s being loaded and unloaded and check to see if parking permits are required. Each ReloCube takes up one parking space.
