STORsquare Portable Storage vs. Moving Truck Rentals

Compare moving trucks to portable storage with STORsquare.  We offer self-moving, storage, and full moving service options. The best part is we do all the driving so you don’t have to.

STORsquare vs. Moving Trucks

Compare STORsquare to U-Haul®, Penske®, & Budget®.

Moving is stressful enough without having to drive a huge rental truck. By the time you add in gas costs, insurance, and time, renting a truck tends to be more expensive than most think. Not to mention if you’re just moving some stuff into a self storage facility, a rental truck makes even less sense.  

When you compare moving trucks to portable storage, it’s easy to see that STORsquare offers a ton of advantages over renting a U-haul®, Penske ®, or Budget® truck. Two of the biggest advantages that portable storage offers that trucks cannot are that we do all of the driving and we give you more control over your entire move.

What to consider when comparing moving trucks to portable storage

We do the driving

Driving a big moving truck can be really stressful and more expensive than you’d think, especially if you’re not quite ready to move your stuff to your permanent location yet. Renting a moving truck just to store your stuff in a temporary self-storage unit adds unnecessary time, labor, and stress. When you compare moving trucks to portable storage, you spare yourself a lot of time and hassle because you’ll only have to load and unload once plus we do all the driving.

We drop off a portable container, you load it (or have one of our preferred partners do it for you), then our professional drivers pick it up with our no-tilt mule delivery system to bring it to our secure storage center. When you need your stuff again, we bring the container back to you and you unload it on your own time. We do all the driving and you only have to load and unload once.

Storage is "built-in"

What if you’re move-in ready but your new home isn’t? Or what if you need to declutter your home before selling but don’t have anywhere to put it? No problem! We can store your container at one secure location for as long as you need.

When you compare moving trucks to portable storage, you’ll see that moving trucks can serve a purpose, but a lot of times it just makes everything more of a hassle and a lot more labor intensive. With a moving truck, you have to pick up the truck, drive it home, load it, drive it to a storage facility, unload it, then return the truck. When it’s time to get your stuff out of storage, you have to repeat the whole process in reverse.

Whew! That’s a TON of unnecessary loading and unloading.
