Smartbox Portable Storage and Moving of Dallas-Plano

Although moving is an exciting time, it can also bring a lot of stress. Having the right team of professionals on your side can simplify the process and make your move to Dallas, Texas, go as smoothly as possible. At SMARTBOX, we're here to become that team for you and your family. For more than 15 years, we have been working closely with customers who are moving into and out of Dallas, as well as other cities throughout the country.

Welcome to Dallas

Dallas is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, which is the fourth-largest metropolitan area in the country. The city of Dallas itself sits on 343 square miles and has a population of over 1.3 million, making it the third most-populous city in the state of Texas. Although it is a growing and booming city, there are a number of suburban areas and charming neighborhoods that appeal to families who don't want the hustle and bustle of the big city. 

When researching places to live, you'll come across a number of neighborhoods that fall within Dallas. Grapevine is great for families, boasting lower taxes than other areas, along with plenty of parks and highly rated schools. This neighborhood also hosts annual festivals and events. If you enjoy sampling local wines, you'll be in the right place, as Grapevine is home to several wineries. 

M Streets, so named because two of the major streets and many of the minor streets begin with "M," is a historic neighborhood with homes that date back to the 1920s. When you live in this area, you'll have easy access to downtown but come home to a place with tree-lined streets and well-established neighbors.

Uptown is an area that feels more urban, although housing is cheaper than downtown. You'll find local eateries, open green spaces, and plenty of nightlife, with a sprinkling of hipster vibe in the mix. For golf enthusiasts, Trophy Club is one of the top neighborhoods because of its proximity to several courses. The neighborhood is growing rapidly, with over 200 new homes built each year, but maintains its small-town charm.

Special Points of Interest

Dallas has a pleasant climate throughout much of the year, so you can explore the trail that runs through the Oak Lawn and Uptown areas of the city or relax at Klyde Warren Park, a 5.2-acre open space with fitness classes, daily food trucks, a dog park, live music, and a children's area. White Rock Lake is an urban oasis sitting on over 1,015 acres and includes nine miles of trails for hiking and biking, kayaking, paddle-boarding, and fishing areas. The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens features a variety of plant life, along with an adventure garden for kids and picnic areas.

Dallas also has a variety of cultural attractions for entertainment. The AT&T Performing Arts Center features dance, theater, live music, and opera performances. Sports fans can take their pick among the city's NBA, NFL, MLB, MLS, and NHL teams. The Dallas Museum of Art is also an enjoyable place to spend some time, featuring a variety of exhibits and educational programs. Family-friendly attractions include zoos in both Fort Worth and Dallas, Six Flags Over Texas in nearby Arlington, and the Great Wolf Lodge, an indoor water park, in Grapevine.

By offloading the stress of moving to our team, you can focus on more important things, such as which neighborhood you want to live in and where you plan to spend your free time in your new city.

Moving Locally in Dallas

If you're moving from one home to another in Dallas, SMARTBOX can help with these local moves as well. Something that sets us apart from other moving companies is our portable storage units, which we can drop off at your home as you get ready for the move. Pack at your own pace and store items that are ready to go within your portable unit. When the time comes to relocate to your new home, you'll have a neatly packed container that we can transport for you.

If you're not quite ready to unpack, we can also place the container in one of our conveniently located storage units. When you rely on your SMARTBOX team, you'll have fewer worries about the challenges that come with moving.

Storage Options

Unlike other moving and storage companies, we focus on providing versatile solutions that work for each individual customer. Your moving needs are different from those of others, so we'll work with you and provide options and tips to simplify the process. Our portable storage containers are ideal because they allow you to pack your items and keep them nearby, rather than having to move boxes twice or crowd your home. One of our storage containers can hold up to a room and a half of belongings.

Moving From Dallas

At SMARTBOX, we also provide support and solutions for those moving from Dallas to another city. The goal of each of our team members is to make sure you have access to the right moving solution, whether you need assistance with transport across state lines or a place to store your items in the interim.

Dallas is a thriving, fast-growing part of Texas that draws new residents because of its vibrant cultural scene, strong economy, and abundance of outdoor activities. If you're planning to move to the area, contact us at SMARTBOX to start the process.
