As a busy mom trying to keep up with four kids, I’m always on the lookout for ways to save time and money. I recently learned about Closetbox, a service right here in Denver that can making your family’s life so much easier when it comes to moving and storage. Whatever life transition you’re going through, Closetbox can help. Whether you’re relocating to a new home, converting the home office into a baby nursery, moving your elderly parents into a retirement community or something else entirely, they can make the process painless.
We all have belongings that are taking up much-needed space, and yet, we don’t want to get rid of them. Closetbox offers the perfect solution to this problem. They’ll pick up your belongings at your home, transport them to a secure storage facility and deliver them back to you when you need them again. We’re all busy enough, especially those of us trying to keep up with little ones. Closetbox will do all the work so that you don’t have to waste a precious Saturday renting a truck and lugging your belongings to a creepy self-storage unit. Plus, when you crunch the numbers, Closetbox is actually cheaper than traditional self-storage. Everything is included with Closetbox—movers, a truck, insurance, locks—so you’re saving time and money. Even better? You only pay for the space taken up by your belongings, instead of a half-empty self-storage unit.
What is it?
Closetbox was founded by two parents who understand that life with children can be chaotic. When Marcus and Katy Mollmann welcomed twins into their family, they realized they needed to convert their dining room into a playroom — their family had grown from two children to four overnight. But the Mollmanns didn’t have the time or the energy to rent a truck, plead with their friends to help them load it and transport their dining room furniture to a self-storage unit. They realized they could help other people going through similar life transitions by creating a concierge-like storage service.
It’s simple to use Closetbox. If you need to store some or all of your belongings for a while, all you have to do is pack them up and let Closetbox do the rest. After you pick a date and give them your address, the Closetbox team will arrive at your home. They will carefully load and unload your belongings, which are kept in a private vault at a secure storage facility that’s monitored 24/7. When you want some or all of your items back, you can let Closetbox know through their easy-to-use website—they’ll deliver them on-demand to your home.
What makes it unique?
By now, most of us are using tons of little tricks to help us spend more time with our families: grocery delivery, TV and movie streaming options, two-day shipping, subscription services for clothing and dog toys – the list goes on. Closetbox is a similar “life hack” that takes the stress out of moving and storage. Their team has all the right equipment, so they can ensure that your belongings (and your walls) don’t get scratched, dinged or damaged during the moving process. They rely on licensed, insured and bonded logistical professionals with decades of experiences so that you don’t have to do any heavy lifting (when you’ve got kids running around, you know how difficult this can be). Plus, your time is extremely valuable. Closetbox can give you back an entire weekend (or more) that you’d have spent moving your belongings into storage. Closetbox will also return your items to you when you’re ready. Just want one or two items? They can do that, too, because they keep a detailed digital inventory of your belongings. It’s like having a personal valet for your skis when winter rolls around or your stroller when baby No. 2 finally arrives!
Bottom line: From one mom to another, if you’re going through a life transition soon, don’t subject yourself to the hassle of self-storage. Set your mind at ease and let Closetbox handle everything for you.
