Launched in February, Storage By The Box is a ship-and-store, by-the-box storage option that allows customers to ship and retrieve boxes for storage through a secure online portal.

The company provides free boxes, packing materials and FedEx shipping to place items in storage. The service can be used for personal storage, business storage, records storage and more. The company also offers document-destruction services.
The Storage By The Box team has more than 20 years of experience in the self-storage industry. Murphy currently owns several self-storage facilities in the Greater Chicago Area.
