Locations and Service Area
Most portable storage companies offer service throughout the U.S., but in some cases only to and from larger metro areas. For example, while U-Haul has locations in most cities, U-Box containers may not be available everywhere. U-Pack services multiple locations in all 50 states, Canada and Puerto Rico.
Most of the containers are made of metal; however U-Box and SMARTBOX containers are made of wood and topped with a covering.
Most companies require a deposit or down payment before the equipment arrives. Others separate the cost into payments along the way. U-Pack does not require a down payment or deposit. Reserve with a credit card and pay after your equipment is loaded.
If you’re unsure how many portable storage units you’ll need, choose a company that offers flexibility. U-Pack allows you to pay only for the ReloCube containers you use, no matter how many you reserve. Most other companies charge a fee for returning an unused container.
