MetroBOX vs Other Storage Services

What’s The Difference?

Although many companies offer quality mobile storage services, many provide a different range of services to MetroBOX. In fact, we believe our MetroBOX mobile storage services are better described as “full service” mobile storage, while other are more of a ‘mobile self storage’ provider.

How Does MetroBOX & Mobile Self Storage Compare?

Mobile self-storage is a great solution if you’re a fit, strong, young DIY type with some spare time on your hands. For the rest of us, hiring a mobile self storage unit is less accessible.

MetroBOX will do all the heavy lifting for you, which means you don’t have to spend the time, money and effort moving all your belongings back and forth to try and see what will fit. MetroBOX also provide free furniture blankets and straps to ensure your belongings remain in position, steady and don’t get jumbled around while in transit.

Mobile Self Storage companies bring your storage unit and then unload it onto the street or into your front yard for you to load yourself.

MetroBOXes are loaded straight onto our trucks, which means:

  1. There is minimal shaking and movement
  2. No double handling of your belongings
  3. You don’t need to make space for MetroBOXes in your front yard or on the street
  4. Your belongings are always supervised and secure.

Plus, at MetroBOX our premium storage consultants will guide you through every step, which makes your life so much easier!

MetroBOX Overview

MetroBOX is a relatively new storage company, but we grew out of a well-established (for over 20 years) and well-reputed professional removals and storage company, MetroMovers. The genius of MetroBOX is not just that we bring the storage unit to your address and transport it for you: that is not so unique.

The real advantage to choosing MetroBOX (or one of them) is that you will get your storage loaded on the spot by our own trusted, professional, trained and experienced removalists.

That means your belongings are never left unattended and your furniture will be professionally handled, wrapped and secured in place during transit. You also don’t have to strain yourself to lift and load up your belongings because our removalists are experienced enough to really maximise your (already bigger) storage space.

FYI: We also offer a self loading service, but only if you bring your belongings to our secure storage facility. If you’re ordering a MetroBOX delivery, it automatically comes with our full-service, professional removalists and storage services in one.
