RICHMOND, VA (PRWEB) June 09, 2015
SMARTBOX, a leading portable storage and moving company, today announces the opening of a new SMARTBOX location for the Northern Detroit area in Warren, Michigan.
“We believe that the convenience of portable storage will provide our customers with a new and valuable DIY moving and storage alternative,” said Jeff Palmer, President of Palmer Moving and Storage, and owner of the SMARTBOX of Detroit North. “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, and store their possessions between moves. It is a perfect complement to our existing 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.
“SMARTBOX simplifies 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 Palmer team, with over 100 years of experience in moving, as a new licensee to serve the Greater Detroit 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 officially opens to the public on June 8, 2015.
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.
