You only need to register on our website, choose your suitable storage box, schedule the appointment for box collection and our delivery team will deliver the box to your Hong Kong location with tamper-proof seals to the specified address at the scheduled time. You can choose packing immediately (our driver can wait for 20 minutes), or you can choose scheduling an alternative day for us to pick up your box. Our delivery team will ensure your item will be secured in our warehouse. When you want to get your items back, you just log in to your Chubbox account and select the boxes that you want returned. We will return your items on your scheduled date.
