Smartbox Units - Size and Features

How big is a Smartbox storage unit?

The outside of a Smartbox is approximately 3m long by 1.8m wide and 2.4m high. The internal measurements are slightly less measuring approximately 2.9m long x 1.8m wide and 2.1m high.  You can generally fit all the belongings from a 1 - 2 bedroom home into one Smartbox.

For business and office storage you can load up to 1400kgs into each Smartbox - approximately 130 standard size archive boxes, full of paper.

What are Smartbox storage units made of?

Smartboxes are built of wood, which can breathe (unlike steel), so the items inside are well protected from temperature and humidity changes. All your belongings from paperwork to large furniture items will be safe and secure in a Smartbox, making it the ideal business and home storage solution

The Smartbox trailer "SmartTrailer"

The Smartbox comes in a fully covered, lockable, aluminium trailer (similar to a house moving truck). This ensures the Smartbox and your belongings inside are fully protected from all weather conditions and secure while parked at your home. The SmartTrailer will be locked in place with a tow ball lock and one wheel clamp on the trailer.

Locking a Smartbox

The Smartbox has a three hinged door with a sliding bolt locking system. We can supply your padlocks or you can provide your own. Either way, you'll be the only one with access to the key, as you are the only keyholder. See more info on security and access of your storage boxes.

Packing a Smartbox

A Smartbox storage box is easy to pack and easy to get into. The floor is only 40cm above ground level and access is up a low built-in ramp. Take a look at our packing tips for more information on the best way to pack your Smartbox.
