Long Distance/Cross Country Moving Pods & Storage Containers

Moving long distance and across the interstate with SMARTBOX is a great way to ensure that your belongings are moved safely across the country. Whether your move takes you from the east coast to the west coast, or from the north to the south, SMARTBOX offers smart moving solutions to guide you through your entire moving process.

Moving long distance requires additional strategic planning, and our moving team of moving consultants wants to make sure that we have everything in place that you will need in order to complete your move. Once we obtain the amount of items you have to move, we schedule a time to send the containers to you so you can start packing for your long distance move. There is no rush on how quickly you need to complete your packing because SMARTBOX portable moving containers are delivered directly to you. In fact, you can schedule a later date for SMARTBOX to return and pick up your packed containers. At that point, SMARTBOX moving experts will coordinate your move with the SMARTBOX facility in your new relocation city, and provide service for you to have your items unloaded and unpacked. 


That’s a common question, because the kind of moving services most people use when they relocate are either the DIY, “rent a truck and drive it yourself” variety, or the traditional type of long distance moving services in which your belongings may be added to another scheduled move depending on the moving company’s schedule. Each moving quote we provide for our long distance moving services is unique, and will be based on the weight and size of the items you need to move or store, and how many containers you are likely to need. Our customer service representatives can help you determine how much container space you need for your belongings, so we can provide you the most accurate quote that fits your needs.


Many people might not even know where to begin with the packing, but relax: Packing a container for a long distance or interstate move is actually easier in some ways because you can usually take more time to pack, and can pack it with the unloading process in mind. Once the container is packed up and picked up, it stays securely closed and locked until it’s at your destination and you’re ready to unpack it.

One of the best aspects to moving long distance with SMARTBOX is that your belongings are packed securely into the portable storage container. Once again, the engineering success of the SMARTBOX container comes into play because it provides added protection against shifting during transport. You also gain the security of knowing that once your items are loaded into the moving container, they will not be opened until you decide to. With traditional long distance, interstate moves, it is possible that due to tight schedules, your belongings could be added into another scheduled move. This opens the door to damage and lost items. With SMARTBOX, you are our priority, and we keep all of your containers closed and locked until you are ready to open them.

The SMARTBOX containers fit together perfectly on a certified, bonded transport truck and provide the perfect platform for you to pack your items in a room by room, detailed and organized way. SMARTBOX understands that a long distance move can be an exhausting process, and when your belongings arrive at their new destination, you will have the advantage of easier unpacking because each unit contains items from a specific room. You will avoid having to spend extra energy sorting through kitchen items that may be mixed in with basement items, or bedroom items mixed in with dining room items.

Traveling across the interstate can bring various opportunities for bumpy roads and bad weather conditions, but once again, the SMARTBOX containers are designed for durability and weather changes. As your belongings are transported across the miles, so is our professionalism, dedication and commitment to great customer service, and we will make sure we protect and guard your belongings as our own.
