GoBox Portable Storage Inc. is a top notch organization. Efficiency and service is their major strength. We rented two large storage containers when we built our house - they were delivered on time and placed exactly where we wanted them. We just returned them, and they were removed quickly and neatly. Would highly recommend this company in a heartbeat. Thank you, Rob! Five star all the way! Steve C.

We rented a storage container from Rob while building a house. With appliances being in such high demand we wanted to get them ahead of time but had no place to keep them. The storage box was perfect for all the house appliances and fixtures and was handy to have on site. Very affordable and was a life saver during the build.

Quick and courteous service. We needed some extra storage fast and they delivered clean, secure, and well-functioning containers. The mini lift they used for placement allowed us to get creative and fit 2 containers where others would have only been able to place one.

So happy with the delivery of the container today! I was totally prepared to "make do" with locating it at a space that I thought was most accessible for him but he was able to place the container in a preferred spot thanks to the system he uses to move the container off the truck. I had never seen anything like this - using remote control to operate the machine that moves the container - no worrying about the truck being able to fit into a tight space! I totally recommend this service if you are looking for affordable, clean, convenient extra storage on site.

Our GoBox was delivered within a week of the request. The price is comparable to a storage unit of similar size, but you have the convenience of having is where you want it. We rented it when we did a major renovation and it was perfect. The owner was curtains and friendly as well. Highly recommend!

We rented a go box while doing a home renovation, it was great putting our appliances and furniture right outside our front door. We could bring pieces in as the reno moved along. Price is very comparable to a storage facility but didn’t have to hire truck or movers to get from storage facility. It only took Rob 20 minutes to unload storage container right onto my front yard ( my choice) , ten feet from my front door. Very neat , manoeuvrable unit that loads/unloads the container, makes so Rob can put it almost anywhere. Highly recommend!

Having the storage container land in on our driveway and the ability to move the contents of our home at our leisure was priceless. I can’t say enough good things about this experience.

We recently moved from a large house to a much smaller house and needed a storage solution to allow us to sort things out without storing offsite. GoBox fit the bill perfectly. They gently lowered the container onto wooden blocks on the driveway with their amazing container mover. It didn't leave a single mark on the driveway. A very cost effective storage solution. I highly recommend them.
