Move on over to Red Rover!
Enter your zip code on our website and we will show you the locations closest to you and their distance from you. Use the "Map It!" feature to see the locations in Google Maps™.
We will text you your private gate code the night before you're scheduled to pick up your Red Rover® truck and container. Just reply "open" to the text when you arrive to automatically open the gate. Our lot is secure and you can leave your car there while you are using our truck – no more having to get someone to drop you off and pick you up!
All you need is to be at least 25 years old, have a valid US driver’s license, and provide the name of your car insurance provider. Our brand-new trucks include state of the art safety features and driver’s aides such as backup cameras, lane deviation alerts and height warning alerts are standard on all our trucks. They make driving a cinch. We also provide roadside assistance, but we hope you never have to use it!
Overall, use space as efficiently as possible -- try to pack things snuggly from wall to wall and floor to ceiling as contents will shift while you are driving.
Place your larger, heavier items on the bottom and load lighter items on top of them. Try to distribute the weight of your belongings in the container evenly. Make sure your items are protected and devoid of moisture to prevent mildew and damage to your belongings. We recommend using packing blankets liberally to protect furniture and other items.
You can turn couches on their end to maximize usage of your space – do not shrink wrap leather. Flip mattresses up against the walls or back of the container to best use space. You can pack loose lighter items like blankets and pillows in trash bags. They can be used as padding for other items and to help keep items from shifting.
There are eyelets at regular intervals on the interior posts of the container. It is important to use rope or straps with these eyelets to secure your items as you load your container.
Use a blanket to pad the dolly when loading furniture and other goods. And many people aren’t used to using a ramp, so please be careful!
