Storage Container Rentals

Think two dresser drawers or 50 tees

Never again will you need to travel back and forth to storage facilities or cram your belongings into an overstuffed closet. At Blue Crates, our storage container rentals allow you to declutter your home and store what you need to, for as long as you need to. We deliver crates right to your door and let you pack and catalog items at your own pace—we’ll pick them up when you’re ready. When you need to retrieve or switch out your items, simply schedule a Swap, and we’ll bring them back to you.

What stores well in our crates? Our affordable storage bins work well for:

  • Clothing and shoes
  • Children’s toys and books
  • Seasonal hobby items
  • Sentimental belongings
  • Small appliances and tools

Think 20 dresses or 20 winter coats
27”L x 17”W x 48”H
Separate your wardrobe into seasons and store what you don’t need in our portable wardrobe rentals. With Chicago’s well-defined seasons, it’s easy to store and swap out your winter coats for summer dresses or khakis. Accidentally store something you need back? No need to stress—let us know you if you need a Swap, and we’ll bring back your specific wardrobe rental.

Furniture and Oversize items

Think coaches, tables, beds, etc.
At Blue Crates, we offer furniture storage options in addition to our crate and wardrobe options. We’ll pick up and store your furniture, and we’ll bring it back to you when you need it. This is a great option if you’re transitioning into a new place after a move, if you need somewhere to store dorm furnishings, or if you’ve recently downsized or acquired additional furniture.

What about non-furniture items that don’t fit in a crate or wardrobe? Will we take items that don’t work in our traditional storage container rentals? The answer is yes: Blue Crates will store those items, too. We’ll store any number of oversize household and hobby items, including:

  • Bikes
  • Golf Clubs
  • Ski Snowboards
  • Luggage
  • Strollers

An oversize item is anything that won’t comfortably fit within a crate but that one individual can still easily carry up and down a flight of stairs. It must weight under 50 lb. If you have something in mind but aren’t sure it will qualify—just ask! Give us a call, and we’ll clarify whether your item qualifies as an oversize item.
