The best part about using U-Box containers for a move or as a portable storage solution is you have the flexibility and control to plan the perfect move. You can ship to your new home or store until you know where you’re going. We give you the opportunity to plan each step of the process to ensure it works best for you.

City to City Moving® containers will give you the flexibility and convenience you need for your next move.

  1. Choose the number of containers you need. One U-Box container fits about a room and a half of household items. When in doubt get extra–we won’t charge you if you don’t use it.

  2. Tell us when you will need to access the container. If you ship it to a new city but don’t need it yet, we can store it for you at our secure warehouse.

  3. We deliver the containers to you and pick them up when you’re ready. If you would rather take it home yourself, use our specially built trailer or pack it at a U-Haul location. Learn more about the different delivery options.

  4. We will store your container at our secure warehouse or we can ship anywhere in the world. You will hear from us when the container is in transit and when it arrives at its destination.
