MyPorter: Self Storage for the Twenty-First Century


Have you ever looked at all your stuff and thought you could really use a storage unit? Self-storage sounds like a great idea, but it can be a lot of work, and money. You’ll pay for the space, but then you’ll have to get all your stuff to the unit, too. That means hiring a moving company or renting a truck and spending all day hauling heavy boxes and other items. Then, when you want to get your stuff out of storage, you have to rent a truck again, go to your unit, find your items, and haul them back to your home.

It’s a lot of work. But what if we told you there’s an easier way?

At TrustDALE, we love to find ways to do things better, more easily, and at a better value. With MyPorter, you get all of those. MyPorter is self-storage for the twenty-first century.

When Adam Caldwell, Dale’s son, needed some stuff stored for a while, he turned to MyPorter. They saved him time, energy, and money. In fact, the professionals at MyPorter were so reliable that Adam’s wife, who can often worry about the details, felt so secure that she left the house during the move.

What makes MyPorter different?

With MyPorter, you hardly have to lift a finger. All you have to do is pack up your stuff. You can use your own boxes, or you can use plastic bins they provide for free. Once your stuff is packed, their porters will transport it all FOR FREE to their storage facility. All you pay for is the storage space. It’s a flat monthly fee based on how much space you need.

But here’s the really cool part! (As if free pickup wasn’t cool enough.)

Once your stuff arrives at the MyPorter facility, they will take pictures of everything. Then they create a custom online inventory of all of your items. There’s no guesswork in trying to remember what you put in storage. It’s all there. And when you need an item out of storage, forget about renting a truck and convincing your friends to meet you at your storage unit. Simply navigate to your online inventory, pick the items you need delivered, and for a small fee, your items will be delivered to your door.

It’s like storing your stuff in the cloud! And just as secure.

Security is a big deal with any self-storage. Many self-storage units say they offer security, but they can’t offer what MyPorter offers. Here’s why. With regular self-storage, you rent a storage unit and it’s up to you to visit that unit any time. You can add items, take things out, or just visit an old pair of pants. It doesn’t matter what you’re there for, you can come and go as you wish. The problem is that so can everyone else with a storage unit. How safe does that make you feel?

With MyPorter, you don’t need to visit your stuff. They take care of moving your stuff in and out of storage. That means that their storage warehouse is truly secure. No one but MyPorter employees ever comes into the warehouse. Just like storing things in your home, the MyPorter warehouse is climate controlled, pest free, and secure. In addition, MyPorter protects your belongings with fire prevention systems, fire department monitoring, 24-hour surveillance, cameras, motion detectors, night vision, and alarms. And unlike typical self-storage, the MyPorter warehouse is not open to the public. So you can be sure that your belongings are completely safe.

Dale is proud to include MyPorter as a TrustDALE certified business. So if you’re ready to clear out some space and put things in storage, look no further. Dale trusts MyPorter and so can you!
