How do Dry Box's moving and storage containers compare to U-Box?

Whether you’re moving or just wanting some extra storage, you want to be assured that your belongings will be safe and secure.

Dry Box containers are made from rust-resistant steel and are wind, water, and rodent proof. U-Box’s on the other hand are constructed from plywood and only have a weather-proof covering. Because of the plywood construction, it puts your belongings at risk, and the U-Box could easily break apart in transit.

Our Commitment to Customer Service

At Dry Box, each salesperson’s primary responsibility is to meet customer expectations, including product quality and timely delivery.

Dry Box believes in the cradle-to-grave concept. This means that from the moment you sign the rental agreement, the same salesperson who took your order will manage your account through the delivery of your moving and storage container.

Additionally, Dry Box sales reps can delegate work but not responsibility. They work closely with dispatch, yard workers, and drivers, but only the sales rep fully understands the customer’s expectations. Therefore, the sales rep is responsible for meeting those expectations.

Finally, Dry Box expects its Sales reps to resolve Customer service issues directly with their customers, however if the sales rep fails to find a resolution, then the customer can speak directly to his manager. In the event the Sales Manager has not resolved the issue the customer can speak directly to the owner and president of Dry Box.
