4-foot storage container

It might be the baby of the bunch, but our 4-foot storage container still offers an impressive amount of storage space – up to 220 cubic feet. It’s ideal for moving items from a smaller living space or when you want to store items from one room. This size is a big hit with college students moving to campus housing for the first time. When it comes to storage space, our 4-foot container is perfect for storing or moving the contents of places that are 550 square feet or less, such as dorm rooms or studio apartments. The size is comparable to a 5 x 5 storage unit. If your still not sure whether this container is right for you, why not spend a couple of minutes and use our online calculator.

While the exact cost will depend on how much you’re moving and factors like volume, distance, season, and amount of local moving services you need, our marketplace model and price match guarantee make the cost of moving with CEND more affordable than with most other moving companies in Washington DC. For a better idea of how much CEND can save you on your next move, try our free quote tool for an estimate specific to the size of your container and the moving and/or storage services you’ll need. Because CEND lets you hand-select services and add-ons (from do-it-all-yourself to full-service), you have total freedom to design a service package that meets your requirements and fits your budget.

With CEND, we make it easy for you to choose only the moving and storage services you want for your next move. We’ll start by delivering your container. You can either pack and load the container yourself or choose to have some help with some of the heavy lifting (or all of it). Then we’ll ship your container to its new location, letting you track its progress on your device at every step along the way. When it arrives, you’re free to unload it yourself or have a team unload it for you. And at any point you can keep as little or as much as you want in one of our secure storage facilities. Flexibility makes us who we are, so don’t worry — if you need to change your plans, we’re there to accommodate you. It’s one of the reasons our customers keep using CEND for their moving and storage needs.

Yes, we offer shipping to and from most major metro areas in the country. Check the map to see our locations, or get in touch with one of our team members for any specific questions about where we ship and store our containers.

While it varies from person to person, CEND offers customers a moving calculator to get a rough idea of the size and number of containers they’ll need. The following descriptions can give you a general idea of what you might be able to fit in our larger containers:

8-foot containers are normally all you’d need for the contents of a studio or a large room — think of a generous walk-in or storage closet. At around 4,000 pounds of capacity, this container can stow a bed/mattress, a loveseat, chairs, a carpet, a few minor appliances, and about 25 small boxes. These containers are perfect for students or singles with only a few larger items to ship. They also make for a great way to hold overflow from other container sizes.

16-foot containers are most suitable for long-distance moving or for shipping the contents of a two- to three-bedroom home. They can handle around 8,000 pounds and are about the length of an SUV but slightly wider. This size container can fit up to three beds, three couches and armchairs, several tables, 15 chairs, carpets, two large appliances, and about 30 small and 15 large boxes.
