How does Smartbox work?
It’s simple! Smartbox is delivered directly to your home or office. You have 24 hours to pack up and lock your Smartbox unit. Then, we return to collect your unit and take it to our secure storage facility.

When you are ready to have the contents of your unit returned, you simply arrange for us to bring your Smartbox back to you. Your items never leave the unit you packed them into initially!
Ease of Access
Each Smartbox is delivered to you in a lockable aluminium trailer that is fully protected from the weather. A Big Box measures approximately 3m long x 1.8m wide x 2.4m high. In general, you can fit the contents of a 1 to 2 bedroom home into one unit, or for business needs, about 130 standard size archive boxes will fit into one Big Box. A Baby Box measures approximately 1.8m long x 1.8m wide x 2.1m high. In general, you can fit the contents of a studio to 1 bedroom home into one unit, or for business needs, about 90 standard size archive boxes will fit into one Baby Box.
