At CEND, we know how stressful moving and storing your personal possessions can be. We understand you might have questions concerning the safety of your possessions or the ease of the storage process as a whole. We want you to feel like you’re in control during every step of your experience. We offer secure storage solutions, so you can rest assured knowing your belongings are safe within our sturdy, steel containers. You can lead the way and choose from our accessible and flexible storage options.

We prioritize making your moving experience as smooth as possible. With CEND, you’ll enjoy the following benefits.

Whether moving or just storing your items, you get to control nearly every aspect of the process. We offer you the confidence to decide which features and services you need as well as the independence to complete a move your way. After all, you shouldn’t have to pay for features you don’t intend to use. That’s why we don’t bundle our services and, instead, offer them a la carte style.

When you move with CEND, you also get flexibility. If you need to store your belongings for a few weeks locally while your new home is prepared, we can do that. You can keep your storage unit on-site for easy 24/7 access, or we can keep it at one of our local facilities until you’re ready to take it back.

If you’re moving across the country, just pack up your belongings or hire packers and movers through us, and we’ll do all the heavy lifting. You can enjoy total flexibility to create the experience you want and can afford, whether you need portable storage units for rent or storage units in Chicago.

When moving, time is of the essence. If you’re like most people, you probably want to complete your move as soon as possible, and delayed belongings or storage containers could cost you time and money. With a cross-country relocation, CEND ensures your items show up right at your new home without any need to retrieve them. Nothing is more important to us than satisfying our customers, and because of that, we ensure all deliveries of portable storage containers are right on time, every time.

on-site storage

Our on-site storage is a convenient option for homeowners remodeling their residences and needing a way to keep their belongings safe and out of the way. With this storage model, we deliver storage containers to your location. You can pack your belongings and keep the units until you no longer need them. Because our facilities are not available for customers to visit, this is the best option if you want easy access to your stored belongings.

mobile storage

For people who are relocating and experiencing a short period of time between leaving one home and moving into the next, our mobile storage may be a great choice. With this storage option, we will bring a storage container to you. You’ll fill it up with your belongings, and we’ll take the packed container to one of our secure storage facility locations. We can hold your items for as long as you need and deliver them to you when you’re ready.

If you need access to something in storage during the time your items are being held, we can either retrieve the item for you or schedule a time for the container to be brought back to your location.

chicago moving & storage

No two moves or storage situations are exactly the same. Because of that, we don’t believe in forcing people to pick from a few select packages. Instead, at CEND, we emphasize creating your own moving and storage solutions that are as unique as your situation. When you book with us, you get to design it all — whether you want a full-service move with packers and movers or you want to DIY it.

If you only need storage or moving services, you can do that a la carte. Or, if you want a full-service experience, where we pack, load, and move everything, we can do that, too. We can move you across town or the entire country, or we can hold some or all of your belongings for as little or as much time as you need. 

We’re here to make your move as easy as possible by letting you choose every aspect of it, from start to finish.

Choosing the right size for your portable storage units depends on several factors, including the size of the rooms or house that need to be packed and how large your furniture is. We offer a storage calculator, which you can use to help visualize the size and how many storage units you may need.

In general, a good rule of thumb is that an 8-foot storage container can fit a studio, room, or apartment under 500 square feet, a 12-foot container is suitable for a 500 to 800 square-foot home, and a 16-foot storage container should fit a two- or three-bedroom home up to 1,200 square feet in space. 

We pride ourselves on making this process as customizable as possible for our customers and their unique needs. You are free to keep your storage container as long as you need, and you can extend how long you keep it without hassle.

Prices for moving and storage services can vary based on several factors, including the services you choose, the size of the storage units you need, and the length of time you require them.

At CEND, we strive to be an affordable option for your moving and storage needs. As such, we offer a price match guarantee to ensure customers like you receive the lowest price and the best value for their dollar. To receive a more specific estimate, please use our free quote tool to determine how much services may cost.

Accessing your CEND storage unit is simple, and we’ll do all the heavy lifting to make it as streamlined as possible. We drop off the containers at your location. You can keep them for as long as you want or need them, for the duration of any remodeling projects you may have, or we can take them after you finish packing and store them at one of our facilities. If you need something while we’re storing it, we can coordinate with you to make that happen.
