Moving from one place to another is one of every person’s milestones. From getting a new home, and transferring to a new office, to transitioning from country to city, relocating is a life-changing experience that marks the beginning of a new chapter. And while it’s thrilling to start afresh, there’s a significant part of the moving process that everyone dreads: organizing, loading, and moving one’s belongings. 


From small valuables to large appliances, the amount of effort that goes into this phase can be both overwhelming and stressful. What’s more, finding a reliable moving and storage company for professional loading services is an equally daunting task. From the assurance that one’s valuables will be protected to the ease of loading heavy items, booking the right mobile storage makes or breaks this experience.


This is where Flex comes in. The company’s team understands that moving and storage are complementary. Flex takes this idea to a whole new level by utilizing sleek trailers that are specifically designed to provide optimal storage conditions and fast, easy transport. Flex uses advanced and personalized smart trailers instead of traditional and cumbersome shipping containers, making it the first-ever intelligent portable storage experience. 


Since 2020, Flex has been delivering a remarkable storage experience through its cutting-edge technology, transforming every customer’s moving and storage phase into an effortless and efficient experience.


Next-Gen Portable Storage

Flex storage units are specially designed to offer maximum protection for personal belongings. Their strong and lightweight steel alloy frames are designed to be durable and easy to move around, regardless of whether one lives in an urban high-rise or a suburban house.


Flex units come with a range of features that outsmart both portable and traditional storage. Its smart ventilation system feature helps maintain the ideal internal climate to protect the customer’s stored items, ideal for heat-sensitive valuables like electronics, artwork, and pantry items. 


Flex units also feature cutting-edge security systems, including an alert system that immediately notifies the customer if there is any unauthorized attempt to open the unit’s doors. Additionally, they have temperature and humidity sensors inside and outside each unit that provide real-time climate monitoring. This ensures that the stored items are not exposed to extreme temperatures or humidity levels that could damage them.


The GPS installed in each Flex unit enables real-time location and movement data, giving clients the peace of mind that their stored items are always secure. These features make Flex units the ideal storage solution for anyone, regardless of whether they live in a high-rise apartment or a suburban home.


Moreover, Flex trailers are designed to be environmentally sustainable, powered by solar energy, and located in underutilized parking lots closer to customers. This approach minimizes the environmental impact caused by excessive transport and the construction of additional warehouses, reducing the carbon footprint of Flex’s operations.


How Does Flex Work?

Customers can simply choose the desired date, time, and address, and one of Flex’s professional drivers will bring the Flex unit to their doorstep – just like booking an Uber ride. The customer doesn’t need to take care of anything else. Flex will also be sending live updates to the user’s phone with their Flex unit’s actual departure and arrival times. Once the order is placed, one of the company’s professional drivers will bring the Flex to the designated address. 


The team behind Flex is committed to eliminating the hassle and headache of packing, storing, and accessing one’s belongings. And in an era where people move around spontaneously and frequently, their smart units serve as the ultimate moving and storage solutions that boast radical flexibility.
