THE DRIVING

No Truck Rental and Return here. We deliver a Moving Container right to you and pick it up at your request to move to your new home. You’ve got enough to worry about… we’ll take care of the driving for you.

Since our moving containers can stay at your current location as long as you need it, you save the time and frustration of multiple trips to and from a mini-storage warehouse.

Since you can fit tons of stuff into a Moving Container (typically everything from a 2-3 bedroom house), we save you multiple trips between your old house and your new house, with no need to travel to a mini storage warehouse.

NO STRESSFUL DEADLINES

With mobile storage from Simple Box, you don’t need to rush to return anything within 24 hours.
We all know someone who had their moving or closing dates change.  You can keep your Moving Container as long as you need, for one low monthly rate. Making your moving experience as simple and stress free as possible.

OUR FOUR TOP MOVING TIPS

Moving from one place to another is definitely a big project, but if you plan ahead it doesn’t have to be too hectic. Here are some questions to consider in order to make your next move your best move.

CAN YOU START PACKING EARLY?

When you start early, you have plenty of time to decide what to move to the new place and what will require extra attention.

  • Start by packing your hall closets and other storage areas. These spaces often hold the things that you just haven’t known what to do with until now. 
  • As you pack each item, begin to picture where each item will live in your new home (this can also help you get more excited about the process).
  • Decide whether you’d like to host a garage sale, donate your items, or share items that won’t be moving to your new place.

Instead of spending one busy day filling a rental truck, this option allows you to pack and move everything out on your own schedule, greatly reducing the stress of moving day.

CAN YOU ARRANGE FOR EXTRA HELP?

Moving is rarely a one-person job. You’ll either enlist the help of friends and family or you’ll need to call a moving labor company (in Washington and Arizona, we recommend Thumbs Up Moving Labor)to help you with your endeavor. 

When arranging for moving helpers, we recommend: 

  • At least 3 people
  • Plan for at least 1 hour per room
  • Make the best use of your helper’s time by having all supplies ready in advance

Buy the moving supplies that you need a few days or even weeks ahead of moving day. When you arrange help and supplies far enough in advance, you can feel confident that you won’t be left to do the heavy lifting on your own. 

WILL YOUR NEW PLACE BE READY?

Even if you’re buying a brand new house, there might be some dust and other dirt remaining from construction and others who have been in and out of the house before you.

A day or two before you plan to move in, we recommend going through the house to make sure the following are clean:

  • Bedroom Floors
  • Cabinets and Closets
  • Fridge and Freezers
  • Garage and front porch floor – this helps minimize dirt being tracked in by movers.
  • It’s nice if everything else is clean, but you can get to it later if needed. 

ALLOW EXTRA TIME FOR PAINTING & REPAIRS

Older homes may require renovations. When you move with Simple Box, you can keep the Box for as long as you’d like for one reasonable monthly rate. It can also be nice to have extra time to paint, replace flooring, or make other repairs while the area is completely clear. This way you don’t have to deal with construction and moving at the same time. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT MOVING CONTAINERS

How much Site Prep is needed for Delivering a Container?

To ensure a safe delivery, please make sure the ground is hard-packed gravel or some other improved surface (asphalt, concrete, etc.), there are no low-hanging wires, and you have enough space for the truck to pull forward from the back of the box.

Should I buy extra Blocks or Dunnage?

If the delivery area is on a bit of a slope, we recommend getting some gravel or several 12-inch 4×6 treated lumber blocks to help get the Box level and get some air-flow underneath the Box.

Can the container be set on railroad ties?

We do not recommend railroad ties as they are often uneven and we’ve seen a lot of people injure themselves trying to drag them around. Containers are made to carry all of the weight at the corners, so all you need is a block under the corner (the drivers carry some dunnage on the trucks).

How much room is needed for container delivery?

  • 20-FOOT CONTAINER: For a 20 foot container, we need 70 feet for the tilt-deck truck to pull forward in a straight line.

  • 40-FOOT CONTAINER: For a 40 foot container, we need 140 feet for the truck & trailer to pull forward in a straight line.

What are the delivery hours for Simple Box?

Our delivery team runs from 8:00am-4:30pm Monday-Friday. We love it when we have at least 3 days notice, but we will do all that we can to get your delivery done on your ideal day(s).

 

Your Driver will call or text when they are on their way to your place.

Do I need to be present for delivery?

There is no need to wait around for us or to take time off work!

You do not need to be there for the delivery or pick-up as long as the delivery area is clear and we have a good idea of where you’d like the Box to be placed. 

Some people leave a cone, lawn-chair, or brightly painted rock where they would like the doors to be placed). 

Where does Simple Box deliver containers to?

We can deliver to most addresses in Washington State, Oregon State, and Arizona State. We can also move customers loaded to other states. 

Sometimes for a delivery that is further away from one of our locations, it is more cost-effective for a customer to buy the Box so that they are not paying a round-trip fee to have us come pick up the Box when they are all done.  

Feel free to give us a call to confirm whether we can deliver to your specific address and to schedule your delivery date.

What if the Delivery Driver gets stuck or can't deliver to my site?

Our drivers are amazing, but there are some times when a site just isn’t suitable, or a customer changes their mind. 

If a customer’s ideal delivery location is not suitable, the driver will do all that they can to place the Box in an alternate nearby location.

We budget for up to 30 minutes at customer site to load or unload, and secure the container. Any additional standby or transport time will be billed at $100 per hour.

Any towing or repair bills resulting from insufficient site conditions will be sent straight through to the customer or delivery contact.

All Deliveries are subject to our Terms & Conditions.

We’d love at least 3 days notice for delivery or pickup of your Box. All Delivery appointments are based on availability in the schedule, so it is best to call with as much notice as possible to ensure your desired dates are available. We always need a window of two days or day-slots to work with. Appointments made under two business days are considered expedited and may be subject to a $50 expedited fee.

To ensure a safe delivery, please make sure the ground is firm, there are no low-hanging wires, and you have enough space for the truck to pull forward from the back of the Moving Container. For a 20 ft Moving Container, we need 60 feet of space for the truck to pull forward. You can watch a video of a container delivery here.

The driver will do everything they can to place your Moving Container where you would like it. In the event a driver determines that it would be unsafe, unwise, or impossible to deliver to that location, they will choose the next most sensible place to deliver the Moving Container. Any delivery that would require a driver to leave an improved surface (pavement, asphalt, concrete, etc.) for an unstable surface (gravel, grass, etc.) the customer will be liable for any additional standby fees, towing fees, or repair fees associated with delivery to unsuitable site conditions. Please review our Hold Harmless Agreement for further details.

Our preference is to always deliver a Moving Container onto private property when possible. Occasionally, at the request of a customer, we will deliver a Container along a City street or lane for a very short period of time. Whenever it may be necessary to deliver a Moving Container in a public area or street, it is the responsibility of the Renter to obtain a permit from the applicable City or Government.

The only thing you need to worry about is that the surface is fairly level and firm.
If the delivery area is on grass, mud, or a steeper slope, we recommend getting some gravel or several 12-inch 4×6 treated lumber blocks to help get the Moving Container level and get some air-flow underneath the Container. We do not recommend railroad ties as they are often uneven and we’ve seen a lot of people injure themselves trying to drag them around. Moving Containers are made to carry all of the weight at the corners, so all you really need is a treated block under the corner (the drivers carry some dunnage on the trucks).

You don’t need to be there for the delivery or pick-up as long as the delivery area is clear and we have a good idea of where you’d like the Moving Container to be placed (some people leave a cone, lawn-chair, or brightly painted rock where they would like the doors to be placed). Your Dispatcher will give you a call or text the afternoon before your delivery is scheduled and your Driver will call or text when they are on their way to your place.

Yes! It’s one of the things we do best… call or email for pricing for a loaded move in a container to your new location. Keep in mind that our trucks and forklifts do have weight limits, so in order to avoid an overweight fee, make sure to pack no more than 9,000 pounds in the Moving Container (the average weight of contents from a 3 bedroom home is 6,500 pounds) and distribute the weight evenly.

Simple Box has a step-by-step process for delivering and moving our containers. All Loaded-Moves are done using 20 foot Moving Containers (up to 33% larger compared to PODS® or PACK-RAT®) and our specialized delivery equipment. See the video below for a quick overview of how it works.

Moving Containers rent month-to-month and there is no long-term contract, so you can keep it for as long or little as you’d like. If you fall in love with your Container, we can even give you an option to purchase it (be sure to ask about this prior to choosing your container).

People are often surprised to find that many other container companies charge “funny fees” such as fuel surcharges and they bill on 4-week cycles (which ends up costing you 18% more than you were planning). At Get Simple Box, even your billing is simple. Moving Container Rent is just month-to-month and you pay for all delivery fees up front, so there are never any surprises. 

You are responsible for insuring your own belongings. You may want to check with your Homeowners or Renters insurance provider.

If the delivery area is on a bit of a slope, we recommend getting some gravel or several 12-inch 4×6 treated lumber blocks to help get the Moving Container level and get some air-flow underneath the Container.

Do not store hazardous, explosive, or flammable materials inside your Moving Container (such as propane tanks or gas jugs). Gasoline should also be drained from any equipment placed in the container.

Our Moving Containers come with a steel lock-box welded or bolted onto the outside of the cargo doors. The lock-box conceals your padlock and protects it from tampering. You provide your own padlock and keep the key (we sell a Master Lock 6850 that fits perfectly). If you’re buying a container, we can install a lock-box for you.

Our Shipping Containers usef for Moving are constructed of 14 gauge steel with 1-1/8” marine grade hardwood flooring, and a water-tight gasket around the doors. As long as you make sure to close the door and only store dry things inside the container, your contents will be safe from wind, rain, and rodents.
