SMARTBOX Portable Storage

SMARTBOX makes the lives of the 100 million Americans who move or store easier by bringing storage right to their door and moving it conveniently, thus alleviating the time, cost, and hassle usually associated with moving and storing. SMARTBOX has created all the tools necessary for you to take part in the evolution of an industry.


Consumers demand convenience. Just look at the microwave oven, GPS services, the Internet, and now portable storage. Customers have many more appealing things to do with their time than deal with the traditional, time-consuming, labor-intensive process of moving. SMARTBOX makes this process easier by delivering portable storage to a customer's door. Once filled, boxes are then picked-up and transported to the storage center and retrieved at the customer's request and delivered to their door.

SMARTBOX is part of a $40 billion dollar a year moving and storage industry that has seen significant growth over the last two decades with no signs of slowing down. SMARTBOX's evolutionary approach is changing the shape of this industry as more and more customers make the SMART choice: SMARTBOX.

Who We Are

After President and CEO Mike Lowe moved for the 12th time in 20 years, he figured there had to be a better way than renting a truck, packing and unpacking, loading and unloading, and then returning the truck within 24 hours. As a result, he assembled a group of dedicated, entrepreneurial, customer service driven individuals, with a reputation of unprecedented operational excellence to make his vision a reality. Our commitment to excellence extends to our franchise support system in the same way that it works for our purchasing, promotion, product development, and merchandising systems. You will be in business for yourself but not by yourself!
