Richmod, VA (PRWEB) June 12, 2008
SMARTBOX, one of the fastest-growing portable storage and moving companies, today announces that its Minnesota franchise has acquired the local location of Door to Door Moving and Storage.
"We're thrilled at the opportunity to expand our reach and strengthen our business," said Sharon Foley, co-owner of SMARTBOX of Minnesota. "We feel that we're the perfect solution to rid your home of clutter or store your stuff during a remodel, home staging or even moving."
SMARTBOX, founded in 2003 and one of Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500®, arrived in Minneapolis in early 2007 when Sharon and Pat Foley, formerly executives at USAllianz Securities and Allianz Life Insurance, respectively, decided to go into business for themselves.
Michael Lowe, President and CEO of SMARTBOX said, "This acquisition marks another step in our plan to grow our national footprint, and in this case, increase market share in a community where we already have a strong presence. "
With SMARTBOX, customers only pack one time, which cuts work in half and reduces the chance of damaging possessions. There's no hauling, no unloading and re-packing. SMARTBOX picks up your Smartbox self-storage container and stores it in temperature-controlled storage centers, complete with state-of-the-art security and sprinkler systems. Unlike traditional self storage, customers can even store containers at their own site if they need frequent access to their belongings.
SMARTBOX has recently expanded to Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Jacksonville, Fla., Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Raleigh, N.C., San Antonio and West Palm Beach, Fla.
SMARTBOX is a leader in the portable self-storage industry, offering individuals and businesses affordable and convenient storage and local and long-distance moving solutions. Based in Richmond, Va., SMARTBOX services more than 60 million people in 35 markets throughout the US. SMARTBOX can also move customers long distances to over 65 major metropolitan areas serving over 135 million people.
