At CEND, our top priority is letting customers design their own moving packages, including choosing the services they want or need for their move and skipping the ones they don’t. When you plan a move with CEND, you’ll have the storage container dropped off for you. Then, you can either pack up your belongings on your own or have CEND’s team do it for you.

Once the storage container is packed, CEND picks it up and transports it to your new location. As the container is transported, you’ll be able to track it and the estimated time of arrival. CEND will drop off your storage container, and you can unload it yourself or opt to have our team do all the heavy lifting for you. 

If you need your belongings held for a period of time, CEND will keep your container at a secure storage facility until you’re ready to have it dropped off.

CEND ships containers to most major metro areas across the country, so if you’re moving across state borders or to a new time zone, you can still book with us. You can browse our locations or reach out to us for more information and whether we ship to where you’re moving.

It can be tough to know exactly which size moving containers you may need when you first get started. That’s why CEND has a moving calculator to help you visualize the size of available containers and how many you may need. 

Generally speaking, you can use these guidelines to help estimate how much storage space you may need:

8-Foot Container: Suitable for a studio, or a room under 500 square feet

16-Foot Container: Suitable for a two- or three-bedroom home, or 1,200 square feet of living space

If your home doesn’t fit perfectly into any of these sizes or if you have more or less furniture than the average home, you can also opt to use multiple storage containers to get the right configuration. After all, CEND lets you design your move.
