Transitional Self Storage

Transitional Self Storage

When moving, it’s not always possible to occupy your new home immediately. You may have to wait for the former owner to move out or, for the construction company to finish the work on your newly built home. In the meantime, you may temporarily move in with a friend or relative who has enough space to accommodate you or opt for a short-term house or apartment rental. Regardless of the temporary housing solution you choose, Birkmire offers transitional storage for that difficult in-between period, so you can get from point A to point B worry-free.

We had an urgent need for a field office trailer and Birkmire Transportation Solutions worked with us to find a solution that met our needs, timeframe, and budget. Their customer service from start to finish was outstanding and exceeded our expectations. It was great knowing that they had everything under control and we could rely on them doing what they said they would do. I highly recommend Birkmire Transportation Solutions!

I have been using Birkmire for many years. They have always been great. I was hesitant at first to move to the new DOCK HEIGHT FACILITY, but now that I am here, I like the convenience for my delivery trucks. The units are lighted and plowed during the winter months.

ZABAWA 2017 has just finished at Holy Trinity RC Church with a roaring success! I am David Thiemann, a life-time parish member and Zabawa volunteer. Birkmire Trucking and Big Box have been our “partners” and supporters for the past two decades here at Holy Trinity. Our needs for refrigerated and dry storage have always been exceeded from delivery to service. Birkmire/Big Box has consistently met and exceeded all our requests over the past twenty plus years, refrigeration and freezer facilities are critical to a successful festival and the Birkmire Team are literally available to service us twenty-four/seven during our Zabawa event. All of the members of Holy Trinity and our volunteers offer a huge THANK YOU to Birkmire Trucking/Big Box as we begin to prepare for our Zabawa 2018 this August, our twenty-fifth year of celebrating our Polish heritage. We truly cannot do this without you!
