Whether you require a one-way move or a local move, McCollister’s will schedule a date and time to deliver the container to your new home. Once the container is at your new residence, we can provide the same unpacking service using a professionally-trained crew or allow you to unload everything yourself. Moving has never been simpler! Our long-distance, one-way, and local moving solutions help you plan your move more effectively within your budget. Our containers take all of the guesswork out of one-way moves. Please contact our container service professionals to get more details or answer your questions.

  • One way moves: McCollister’s will return the container to one of our local secure warehouses, then arrange for one of our professional interstate freight carriers to transport the container to one of our warehouses in your destination area.
