Storage Unit Options When Moving

November 26, 2018


Most people utilize storage units or spaces when moving, but there are many more options these days. There are many reasons to rent a standard storage unit for some or all of your belongings. 


Standard Storage Units 

There are various reasons why you may choose to rent a standard storage unit for some or all of your belongings. Under specific circumstances, an extra storage space can be a life-saver, especially when you find yourself in the middle of a highly transitional period like a home move. Using a standard unit works well if your current home and new home are within driving distance. This can be a huge help when you are having work done on your new place, and why most folks utilize storage spaces in general.


Self Storage Units

Keep in mind that although self-storage can prove to be a huge asset for you during the unpredictable relocation between two homes, it may also turn out to be a financial burden with a number of potential risks and dangers. So, how to choose a self-storage unit without endangering your valued possessions or losing your savings in the process?



What's the difference? is in the engineering and manufacturing design of our storage units. SMARTBOX containers or “Smartboxes” as we like to call them are designed with dimensions that redefine the ease of usage for packing your unit.


Price: SMARTBOX is affordable and we offer discounts to meet you at the level of your need. Whether you are a college student needing a student discount, serving in the military or using our storage service for residential or commercial needs, our prices are better and you never pay for storage you do not use. Availability: An issue that often arises with portable storage companies that have grown too large is a lack of availability to customers, as well as difficulty in meeting your scheduling needs.


Both services typically meet the needs of its customers, including schedules.


PODS provide larger sized units, so if you have more stuff, and ample space to store on your new property (and can swing the extra few bucks), this may be the best option.

SMARTBOX containers run 8’ deep X 7’ tall X 5’. The size of these storage units make it easier for delivery, packing, unloading and storing. When compared to the smallest size storage unit PODS® offers, our storage containers still provide easier packing and stacking due to the smaller height difference. If space and affordability are top of your priority list, Smartbox may be the right solution for you.

Only the storage unit company can give you an accurate price quote so that you can really weigh things up and decide whether or not to go through with your plan. Whichever option you choose to go with, be sure to call Direct Home Connect. We can relocate your utilities and home services in a single call!
