Moving Containers in Albany, NY
Go Mini's is the premier choice for local moving. Let's be honest, moving is not fun, and we know that. This is a stressful event in your life and we want to minimize your worries.
We do this by delivering a container TO YOU. The size of our containers makes renting a truck a thing of the past. It's inconvenient to have someone drop you off to get a rental truck, stand in line, and hope they have the size of truck you need. While you're at it, buy some overpriced packing supplies while you wait. That's why we'll bring the container to your house.
Go Mini's will help make the moving process easier by providing a container that is low to the ground. You no longer have to extend the moving process by going up and down a ramp. Our containers are 8-9 inches off the ground. It's low enough that you can step right in to load the container. Our containers have padded wheels to protect your driveway and protect your unit from water runoff.
Our containers can be rented by the month and in some cases by the week. This allows you to organize and move at your preferred pace. As soon as you are ready to move, simply give us a call, and we will move the container to your new location.
If your new place isn't ready yet, no problem; we can store it at one of our secure storage facilities. As soon as you're ready to move, simply give us a call, and we'll move the container to your new location.

We want you to have the best move possible, so we went ahead and made the following checklist to better serve you.
- Make a list and label boxes.
Make a list of furniture you need to move and think through where you want to place it at the new location. Then use either furniture labels or make your own out of gentle painter's tape. Use a permanent marker to write what the contents are and if they're fragile. It will help you plan ahead and save time while unloading because your friends won't have to ask you where each piece needs to go.
- Set important items aside.
Set important papers, cellphones, keys and other things aside that you don't want packed. Use your kitchen counter top or a special area to secure them in.
- Pack furniture contents in boxes.
This will reduce the chance of losing items and damaging goods. A light dresser is easier and safer to move than a full dresser.
- Use the appropriate box size.
Place your belongings in boxes that are sized appropriately for your contents. You will find that handling them and loading them is easier and safer. We can offer you moving boxes and supplies at a great price.
- Be generous with packing paper.
By packing boxes with enough packing paper, it ensures a good amount of cushioning for your valuable belongings.
- Use plenty of packing tape.
Securing your boxes with plenty of tape will help your boxes stayed closed while you're carrying it.
- Secure furniture containing irremovable glass.
Secure furniture containing irremovable glass by wrapping it in a moving blanket and putting cardboard around it. Then hold it in place with tape or shrink-wrap.
- Cover Furniture
To protect all of your overstuffed furniture like sofas and occasional chairs, shrink-wrap or put it in bags. This will help them stay clean while you move. Shrink-wrap is also great for keeping cushions securely in place while handling and even dresser drawers and cabinet doors.
- Loading your container
When loading your Go Mini, place heavier items in first & build heavy to light starting at the bottom. Dressers make great foundations to a tier, as do cabinets and buffets. Protect your furniture with moving blankets. Load middleweight boxes and furniture in the tier next. Light furniture and boxes can be loaded at the top to finish off the tier remember to load one tier at a time. Finish loading your Go Mini with your mattress and box spring to keep everything neatly in place. Use rope or straps to secure your load and finally lock your Go Mini door.
