SMARTBOX announces that Beltmann Relocation Group Incorporated has acquired the SMARTBOX location in the Greater Minneapolis – St Paul area.

SMARTBOX, a leading portable storage and moving company, today announces that Beltmann Relocation Group Incorporated, located in Roseville, Minnesota, has acquired the SMARTBOX licensed location for the Greater Minneapolis – St Paul area.

“We are excited to expand our service offerings through the addition of portable storage,” said Marc Van Kley, President of Beltmann Relocation Group. “Over the last several years, we have seen how portable storage has become a cost effective way for customers to stage their home in advance of moving, store their belongings during remodeling projects, or store their possessions between moves. It is a perfect complement to our existing suite of moving services.”

SMARTBOX, founded in 2003, offers individuals and businesses affordable and flexible storage and moving solutions. Customers contact the company, which then delivers its conveniently-sized storage containers directly to their door. Users pack their boxes according to their schedules, and when finished, they can either keep the boxes at their existing site or call SMARTBOX to pick them up for storage at their secure storage centers or delivery to another location – across town or across the country.

“The beauty is that we simplify the moving and storage process while providing an affordable and convenient solution for the consumer,” said Dusty Rhodes, Vice President and General Manager of SMARTBOX Solutions, Inc. “We are excited to have the Beltmann team, with nearly 60 years experience in moving, as a new licensee to serve the Greater Minneapolis – St Paul metropolitan area.”

The Smartbox units are 8 feet long, 7 feet tall and 5 feet wide and designed to hold the contents of one to 1½ rooms (3,000-pound capacity). They’re made of wood, which helps protect stored items from changes in temperature and humidity, and are protected by a weather-tight vinyl cover that protects the box and its contents from weather damage. The size of the box is designed to help users compartmentalize, allowing them to pack potentially messy items like garden tools separate from nice items like furniture.

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 nearly 100 million people in 43 markets throughout the United States. SMARTBOX also offers containerized long-distance moves to 75 major metropolitan areas serving more than 135 million people. For a complete list of locations, please visit
