Portable storage unit rentals

Need to get your move organized? MI-BOX storage unit rentals and an address change checklist are all you need.

Moving to a shiny new home is a thrilling experience, especially when the unpacking is nearly completed and your new home starts to take shape. However, things can quickly turn sour when you realize you’ve only switched over a fraction of your mental change of address checklist.

Is it really a big deal to miss a few addy changes? Well, sure it is. Just wait until your income tax return has been completed and your address hasn’t been updated, or you place an Amazon order, and your package gets delivered to your old home…yikes. 

Here at MI-BOX, we want to help make a good experience stay good by providing you with the ultimate change of address checklist! Take a look below.

There’s Only One Way to Organize Your Move

There you have it! A checklist to help you keep yourself organized like a pro after your move. 

Want to make sure the rest of the move goes just as smoothly? Team up with MI-BOX and get a hassle-free and streamlined experience, while saving time and money. Here’s how it works. 

We provide portable storage unit rentals perfectly levelled just steps away from your front door. This means you can work at your own pace and have 24-hour access to your unit days, weeks or even months before the big day. No need to work as quickly as humanly possible to make sure your old home is cleared and cleaned. 

Because we have our own expert drivers that use state-of-the-art lift technology to transport and level your container, there is also no need to EVER drive a massive and awkward moving truck around. Say goodbye to late fees or even damage fees. 

Our storage units come in three convenient sizes, so all you need to do is let us know how much stuff you’re moving to make sure you get the right fit. After that, tell us where to go and when to drop off your MI-BOX portable storage unit

Once you’ve finished loading, let us know where to deliver your unit, whether that be to your new home or our clean and secure storage facility. It’s easy peasy lemon squeezy.
