If you’re in NYC or Chicago, sure! Most of our customers love the convenience of having our bins delivered directly to their doorstep instead of having to find, assemble, and tape their own boxes, but we understand that sometimes people want to keep items packed the way they are.
The cost of storing your own boxes or containers is the same as storing our bins, which is $6.25 per box or container (up to three cubic feet) per month. If you don't know the measurements of your boxes, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture and we can give you an estimate.
If you pack your stuff in our bins or boxes, which can be made available to you upon request, your stuff is covered under our $250/bin or box protection policy. At this time, we disclaim liability for anything you store in your own storage containers or suitcases. If you’re using your own containers or suitcases, be sure to take extra care that they're packed well and sealed securely.
If you’re outside of Chicago and NYC, then no, but you can use our high-quality boxes. They don’t require tape and you can use them for free! They’re engineered with extra-strength walls and unique tags that ensure your boxes arrive at our secure storage facility just as you shipped them. Each box is free of cost to you when storing it with MakeSpace. Non-MakeSpace boxes will be shipped back to you immediately at your expense.
