How Portable Storage Works

Forget the hassle of renting a truck and hauling your own stuff! Big Box makes storing your stuff easy by delivering your Big Box right to your door and letting you load it at your own pace. See how portable storage can make your next transition a breeze.

Schedule your delivery

Use our online tool or call our friendly professionals to schedule your Big Box delivery for your preferred date and time. Not sure how many Big Boxes you need? Each Big Box fits about one room’s worth of contents. Use our storage space estimator as a guide, or just order extra — don’t sweat it, we’ll only charge you for the Big Boxes you use!

We bring the Big Box right to your door

It’s that simple! Tight parking or living in an apartment? Our delivery drivers rarely have difficulty finding a suitable spot to place the Big Box(es). Typically, two Big Boxes can be placed anywhere a car would fit. We can also arrange to deliver your Big Box while you’re away as long as our team has clear instructions on where to place it.

Load at your own pace

No need to hurry! Take as much time as you need to pack your Big Box. If you need more than one Big Box and you’re limited on space or want to take storage one step at a time, then we can stagger the deliveries of multiple Big Boxes for your convenience. When you’re finished loading, call us, and we’ll arrange a pickup date and time.

Store at your place or ours

Have the space and need the quickest access to your stuff? You can store your Big Boxes at your home or business for the ultimate convenience. Big Boxes are lockable and come with a weatherproof covering to protect your belongings from the elements. Or, you can store your items at our secure indoor facility and access your stuff seven days a week during our access hours.

Access at our facility

When you store with us, you can access your items as often as you like for no additional charge. All we need is two hours’ advance notice to have your Big Box ready for you when you arrive. We offer access seven days a week between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
