Door To Door Storage was a United States self-storage company which provided a self-storage box service for customers to fill at their premises. It was acquired in May 2017 by U-Haul[1]; the company delivers the storage boxes which customers load and then ships the boxes to their storage facilities.[2]

Door To Door Storage was founded in Kent, Washington, in May 1996 by Tim Riley,[3] a first-time entrepreneur who had previously worked for Shurgard Storage Centers; the company has locations in metropolitan areas all across the U.S., from Washington to Florida and California to New Hampshire.

The containers are 7 feet (2.1 m) tall and measure 5 by 8 feet (1.5 m × 2.4 m).[4] Each will typically accommodate one to one-and-one-half rooms of household goods, they stand about 4 inches (100 mm) above the ground and are made of pressure-treated 3/4" plywood with a weather-resistant cover.
