Moving Supplies and Moving Truck Rentals

Having been with Move It Self Storage for several years, it comes as no surprise when customers’ needs extend beyond renting a self storage unit. As a property manager, I not only have to know every single facet about storage, moving, and everything in between, but I also do my best to make customers feel comfortable and provide them with as many solutions and options as possible.

Moving or transitioning is one of the most stressful things people go through, so Move It aims to make everything as seamless and convenient as possible. That’s why we offer numerous moving supplies and provide moving truck rentals to make your next moving experience the best one yet.

Types of Moving Supplies

At our Move It Self Storage locations, we provide moving supplies that go beyond basic boxes and bubble wrap. Simply put, if you bought anything that came in a box, we have something for it. Some of our moving supplies include:

  • Multi-sized boxes
  • Packing supplies
  • Peanuts
  • Foam
  • Dish packs
  • Glass packs
  • Mattress bags
  • Wine shippers
  • And much more
If you have items that need a bit more protection, simply ask. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable and can suggest moving supplies based on your unique situation. For example, if you’re decluttering, we may suggest medium-sized boxes and things with handles for those who are moving items by themselves. If you’re moving an entire house, we can come up with a more in-depth list of supplies you’ll need so you won’t wind up purchasing any unnecessary items.

All About Moving Truck Rentals

Move It Self Storage is proud to partner with U-Haul to provide moving truck and trailer rentals as well as towing materials. Renting your truck through Move It not only saves time, but we have access to the same information any other U-Haul dealer does to make reservations and arrangements, turning everything into single, seamless experience for you.

Simply stop by or call your nearest location and we can provide a price quote – whether you’re moving across town or across the country. And when you’re finished with your move, you can drop the truck or trailer off at any U-Haul dealer within your zip code.

If Move It doesn’t have the truck you need, we can tell you exactly where you can get it – which likely won’t be far. That’s because U-Haul neighborhood dealers are typically within three to five miles of each other. And even if you’re not renting a self storage unit with us, we’re still happy to help with a moving truck rental.

Here are some additional tips when it comes to renting a moving truck with Move It:


1. Reserve Your Moving Truck Ahead of Time

I always suggest reserving a truck about one to two weeks before your move. Moving trucks are often in high demand, especially during peak moving months. That’s why it’s better to avoid the hassle of tracking a truck down by reserving the size you need on the days you need it. If you know you’ll need a truck last minute, try to plan for a move on a weekday instead of a weekend, as there will likely be more availability during the week.


2. Let Us Help With Sizing

Just like our storage units, our moving trucks come in all shapes in sizes – anything from a 10 foot box truck all the way to a 26 foot truck. However, choosing the right size can be tricky, since you don’t want to over or under estimate. At Move It, we’ll work with you to pinpoint the size of moving truck you’ll need.


3. Time is Money

If you’re hesitating on renting a moving truck, I always emphasize that time is money. Yes, you can make several trips with your own vehicles, but why drag out the moving process when you can rent a truck for a great price and knock it out in one trip?


4. Have a Plan B

Because there are so many variables involved with moving and renting a truck, I always stress to customers to have a Plan B in place. A stressful situation can be averted by coming up with a backup plan ahead of time. 

Beyond Just Moving

Often people think moving supplies and moving truck rentals can only be used for just that – moving. However, there are several other uses for moving supplies you can take advantage of. Even if you’re not moving or renting a storage unit, our moving supplies and trucks are available for your use.

At many of our locations, businesses take advantage of our moving supplies and moving trucks to help with supplies and extra inventory. We also have a variety of groups who use our supplies to ship items and containers to other parts of the country and even the world.

Whether you’re shipping a lot or even just one item, stop by your nearest Move It location and we’ll be more than happy to help.

A True One-Stop-Shop Experience

At Move It Self Storage, we aim to make your entire experience as convenient as possible by offering more than just storage units. By purchasing quality moving supplies or renting a moving truck with us, you’re not just saving time, you’re saving money and stress.

When you walk through our doors, you can be sure we will listen carefully and do everything we can to help. Our staff is caring, knowledgeable, and well-equipped to help – no matter your unique situation.
