Moving Containers

Moving day is different for everyone. Whether you’re headed to college, closing on your first house or preparing to move for your first day on the job, situations are unique. If renting a moving truck or trailer doesn’t seem like the best option, check out these five signs that moving containers may be the right choice for you.

A New Job

You receive the phone call saying you’ve been hired for your dream job on a Wednesday, and you’re expected to start the following Monday. The new job is out of state and you’ll be staying at a hotel. You won’t need all your things until you find a place, and who knows when that may be. U-Box moving containers allow you to schedule delivery dates, ensuring your things can arrive at a later, more accommodating time for you.

To Rush or not to Rush

With various delivery and pick-up options, you can have the moving container(s) delivered to you at your convenience, and you can take all the time you need to load and unload at your final destination. You also can make sure that your items are being loaded properly without having to stress about being rushed. Whether you need a few hours or a few days, the choice is yours with moving containers.

Flexibility is a Must

Do you need to be out of your old place before your new place is ready…staying with family or friends in the meantime? Are you downsizing and not sure what you are going to do with the rest of your items for the time being? With moving containers, you have the choice to store items for just a few weeks, all the way up to a few years. Situations are unique, and with moving containers, you can adapt your move to fit your specific needs.

College Break

Its summer break and you’re going home…but all your stuff doesn’t need to go with you. Moving containers are a great option for storing belongings until the fall semester. U-Box moving containers are stored in a secure warehouse until ready to be shipped.


If you don’t drive (driving is not for everyone), U-Box moving container is a great choice for you. Using U-Box moving containers allows you the option to use Moving Help delivery. Professional Moving Helpers deliver your moving container, pack or unpack it if you want them to and then drive it away for shipping or storage.
