Our Free Moving Truck: A Customer Favorite


When you first get a storage facility, it is probably because you have a ton of items and you don't quite know what to do with it all - you can't store it all in your home, so you seek out a second place of storage. This is all well and good until you realize that moving that amount of stuff can be time consuming, especially if you don't have a bigger car. Renting a truck or a moving van is one approach, but many people don't feel comfortable doing so.

So, what are you to do?

Instead of moving everything slowly in your mid-size car or stressing yourself out renting a moving truck or van, you can take advantage of one of Smart Self Storage's most beloved programs: the free moving truck program.

This is one of the ways that we set ourselves apart from other companies, we make it easier for you to utilize the space you've rented. We truly care about our customers, and we want to make your life as easy as possible.

Storage Units with a Free Moving Truck Option

When you get a storage unit with us, you can take advantage of our policy that makes it easy to get started. First, you will avoid multiple car trips because everything should fit into our moving truck - or at least a bulk of the bigger items.

Our trucks easily fit anything you need: appliances, furniture, storage bins, artwork, boxes, band equipment, and much, much more. Our facilities are outfitted with loading areas and enough space to make loading/unloading a breeze.

Even better, all of our self storage facilities include the items you will need to ensure a smooth transition from your home or business to the storage facility. Moving carts are available, for example, making it easy to unload items from our free moving truck, right onto the cart, and then over to your storage unit. Or, if you have a drive-up unit, you may be able to park our free moving truck right next to your unit!

Secondly, note that this will save you money because the moving truck is completely FREE. Renting your own truck can cost a lot of money.

About Smart Self Storage’s Free Moving Truck

Our free moving trucks are subject to availability and may not be available in all locations. We are working to get them at every facility and have more availability, but they do tend to be booked very quickly. Stop by one of our Smart Self Storage locations or give us a call today to find out more. The further out you can schedule one of our trucks, the better you will be.

Our Free Truck Option in Northern California

In Northern California, our free moving truck is available for your use, subject to availability. It's easy: Simply ask your manager about our free moving truck program. They'll help you reserve the truck for your use. Please note that in Northern California, you are responsible for driving the moving truck yourself.

A fun fact: In Northern California, our moving trucks are really graphical. They typically have our branding all over them, with high quality photos of our facilities. You can spot one of our Smart Self Storage moving trucks a mile away. What can we say? We are proud of our business and our modern, clean, flawless facilities. We want to showcase their beauty for the world to see, all over our free moving trucks.

Our Free Truck Option in Southern California

In SoCal, the situation is a little bit different. In Southern California, our free moving truck program also comes with a driver! You don't even have to worry about driving at all! All you have to do is load and unload your own belongings. We are incredibly proud to be able to offer a free driver with our free moving truck in Southern California.

Traffic in Southern California can get a little hectic, especially in our very urban locations like Los Angeles Self Storage (Downtown Los Angeles) and Arroyo Parkway Self Storage (Downtown Pasadena). You're already going through a big move, and the last thing we want you worrying about is driving a big truck in an urban city environment. (Please note that you are still responsible for loading and unloading the moving truck.) Moving into your new self storage unit is often during a time of change in your life. We think you'll really enjoy chatting with our driver and sharing stories! (After all, Our Self Storage Employees Are Here To Listen.) Let's make moving into your self storage the most fun ever.

Save Hundreds (or even Thousands) of Dollars

In the end, there are a few reasons to go with our free moving truck services - it comes complimentary with our great storage facility. It is free. Everyone likes things that are free. Moving trucks cost hundreds of dollars or sometimes even thousands of dollars. Ours is free so it won't cost you anything and it's convenient.

With a free truck (in NorCal and SoCal) and people to help you with the driving (in SoCal), there is no need to push everything off or take a few lazy days while you have an empty unit.

Ready to start your self storage journey? Please give us a call, we cannot wait to exceed your expectations.
