1-800-PACK-RAT Teams With Self-Storage Industry

Posted in News, Archive, News, Happenings
Washington, D.C.-based 1-800-PACK-RAT, a relative newcomer in the portable moving and storage industry, has embarked on a national campaign to partner with self-storage businesses. Traditional storage operators can offer the company’s service and enjoy a percentage of the revenue, with no financial investment required. 1-800-PACK-RAT has already created alliances with the Security Self Storage chain of Raleigh, N.C., as well as other independent self-storage providers in Charlotte, N.C., Chicago, Greensboro, N.C., and Washington, D.C.
1-800-PACK-RATdelivers custom-made, weatherproof storage containers to customers’ homes or businesses. There they can be filled at the customers’ own pace before being picked up on demand and moved to a designated location or the company’s warehouse. In addition, the containers can be used as temporary storage for renovation projects, home staging, construction or other applications.
“Aligning with traditional self-storage companies seems like the natural thing to do,” said company CEO Robert Poirier. There’s no reason we can’t join forces to provide customers with the most extensive range of services possible. The speed at which self-storage businesses are partnering with us is proof we’re doing something beneficial for both industries.”
Founded in February 2003, 1-800-PACK-RAT has 18 facilities in 11 states. Fourteen more facilities will be open by the end of the year, and more than 100 are under contract to open in the next few years. For information, call 212.226.8144; visit
