The Ease of Moving With American Portable Storage

Moving companies are expensive. Renting a moving truck, paying the mileage and finding people to help you load and unload your stuff – all in the same day or two – isn’t always easy. The solution: staging your move with a storage unit delivered and picked up on your schedule.

Moving Staging Process


What Is Move Staging?

Just as it sounds, it’s moving in stages. This is something that can’t be done with a moving company or when you rent a moving van. Here’s how it works.

  1. You call American Portable Storage for a storage unit delivered to your home or business.
  2. Over the coming days or weeks, load the boxes and items you won’t need in the immediate future.
  3. Call American Portable Storage to pick up and store the unit until you’re ready for delivery at your new home.


From there, you have a few options. If you’re not interested in paying a moving company to move your heavy and regularly-used items, let American Portable Storage know and we’ll have an additional storage unit delivered. If you are, you pay the moving company only to move the large and heavy items you have, which saves you considerably.

Why Consider Move Staging

The approach of moving in stages isn’t something many people immediately consider, but it comes with several advantages. We’ve already mentioned how it can save you significantly on costs associated with paying a moving company. It can also help you sell your home because it will look bigger without all the clutter. Because American Portable Storage charges by the month, not by the hour, day or week, you can have a less stressful move. Take all the time you need to fill your container and call us when you’re ready for us to either move it to your new home or to our facility, where we’ll store it until you’re ready.

"I really can’t say enough good things about this company and about my experience with American Portable Storage. The owner Dalton is a real class act. He goes above and beyond to provide excellent customer service and professionalism. He spoke to me with kindness and consideration like I was a familiar friend. I first called to inquire about a unit on 6/27 and had a unit delivered the morning of 6/29! He provides prompt service whereas all other companies were booking 5-7 days out. He followed up by squeezing me into a packed schedule the day following the July 4th holiday to transport my belongings to my new home on the same day I called. His prices are the lowest I’ve found by far from any pod/mobile storage company servicing Maryland. When it comes to customer service I’m generally hard to impress but Dalton really blew me away. I’ll be referring him to any and everyone I know. Thank you so much, Dalton. You’re a superstar!"
