TaxiBox, a mobile self-storage operator based in Melbourne, Australia, has launched phase two of its national expansion strategy with the addition of interstate moves and transportation service, with a fixed price for interstate moves across all Australian cities.
“Our new service will integrate our existing proposition with interstate delivery, to eliminate the need for removalists to collect, load and deliver belongings interstate. Nor will customers need to drive a costly rental truck interstate," said co-founder Ben Cohn. "We know our customers will find the unique door-to-door service an attractive, hassle-free solution that doesn’t cost the Earth.”
TaxiBox started in Melbourne in 2010 and expanded its service to Sydney in December 2012. The new interstate service starts at $500 for a direct move between the Sydney and Melbourne metropolitan areas, according to co-founder Jeremy Rosen.
TaxiBox is noted for the taxi motif the company uses on its trucks and storage pods. Units are wrapped in bright-yellow covers that feature black-and-white checkered striping synonymous with yellow taxi cabs. The covers also feature the company’s marketing slogan in a graphical display: “We Deliver, You Pack, We Store.”
