What is DIY Curb to Curb Moving?

Have you ever heard the phrase, “If you want it done right, do it yourself.”? Now sure, there are some things that I most certainly would never attempt to do myself, like repairing the motor in my car or building IKEA furniture. But when it comes to moving or storage, call me weird, I just don’t want other people touching my stuff.

That’s why Big Box Storage offers Do It Yourself curb to curb moving!

How does it work?

Simply put, we transport storage containers (8′ x 5′ x 7′ Big Boxes) to the customer. Once delivered, they load their belongings into the container, and, once packed, it is then picked up and taken to the new local address where the box can be emptied. Forget having to rent, load and unload a truck!

What is the best way to load the box?

For the best run down on how to pack your Big Box, check out our blog on Storage Unit Packing Tips. TL/DR? Place heavy items on the bottom, fragile things should be bubble wrapped or covered with blankets and secured, and everything should be as level as possible (no towering boxes on one side that could fall over during transport). Finally, be sure to utilize the tie down hooks located on the interior side walls of the Big Box.

What if I don’t want to load up the Big Box myself?

Manual labor just isn’t for everyone. If you are interested in having someone do the heavy lifting for you we have several contacts for licensed, bonded and insured professional movers. We can’t rave enough about our mover friends, and their Yelpers agree! Contact our friendly customer service representatives for more information on contacting a mover.

Can I still keep some stuff in storage after my move?
