If you only have a small amount of possessions to move -- say, from a studio or one-bedroom apartment or an office -- you may wish to opt for moving containers as opposed to renting moving vans or hiring full-service movers. A self-moving company like U-Pack, for example, offers what's called a ReloCube.
These convenient, 6'x7'x8' storage containers are dropped off at your location. You simply pack them with all your possessions, then lock the ReloCube. U-Pack picks up the cube and delivers it to either your new location or to a storage facility -- whichever you choose. Not only are these moving containers a great option for smaller moves, but they save a lot of money in the long run.
