Containers & Packing
What is a RedBox container?
RedBox containers are made from strong plastic designed specifically to safely store your stuff. They are waterproof and have tamper-evident security seals to ensure that your belongings are always kept sealed and safe until you decide to open the container again.
For your reference, the dimensions in centimetres are 60L x 40W x 31.5H and we have compiled examples of what a typical person could store in a container.
What can I store in a RedBox container?
Pretty much anything you need stored with the obvious exceptions being anything perishable, liquids, any illegal substances, explosives, flammable materials, hazardous materials or very fragile or high value items.
You are responsible for packing your belonglongs and ensuring that items are safely wrapped in bubble wrap or packaging paper as necessary. All items should be carefully packed so that they can be safely transported and stored.
How do I know how many containers I need?
Each RedBox container measures 60L x 40W x 31.5H (cm). We have provided examples on our website of what a typical person could store in a container for your reference. We can provide extra containers for you and we will collect any empty ones along with the full ones. Don't worry, you will only ever be charged for containers that you actually use.
If you have packed your containers and still need more, just give us a call or order online and we'll send you more empty containers for you to store your items.
Is there a weight limit?
From a health and safety perspective, it is important that each RedBox container or any other item does not weigh more than 20kg. Our employees move a lot of containers every day and this is an important consideration for them. If you have heavy items such as books, please separate them into multiple containers If a container is too heavy when we come to collect it, we may ask that the items be split into separate containers. Goods exceeding the 20kg limit per individual box or item may, at our discretion, be charged as 2 or more items depending on the total weight of the box or item.
How do I securely close my RedBox container?
Ensure everything is well packaged with no items overflowing outside the container. The 2 parts of the lid should interlock and then you can add 2 RedBox tamper-evident security locks into the rectangular hole in the centre at either end of the container.
How long can I keep the empty containers for before they are picked up?
We ask that you please schedule a collection of your filled containers within 1 week from the date that the containers were delivered to you. Once the 1 week period has passed we will need to charge you as if the containers were in storage.
We can also wait for up to 20 minutes while you pack your stuff. Anything over the 20 minutes, will be charged at HK$30 per 30 minutes.
Will you open my containers?
No. You pack and seal each container with our tamper-evident seals and we won't open them. However, if in the rare case that we suspect there is something dangerous, illegal or smelly inside or if required by the authorities we may need to open the container. In such case we will do our best to contact you before hand.
Can I use my own boxes to store my belongings?
Assuming that the box size is similar to that of our containers and does not weigh more than 20kg, you may store your own boxes. Please note that all boxes must be in good condition and well packed and sealed in order to ensure items are safe. We hold the right to refuse to store any boxes if we are not comfortable with the quality of the box or its dimensions. Storage of goods not packed in RedBox containers is stored at your own risk. If you have large boxes you wish to store, please contact us first.
Can I store items that don't fit into a RedBox container?
Aside from storing containers, we can also store other items as long as they are of a reasonable size that one person can carry. Examples include sporting equipment (bicycles, golf clubs, snowboards, skis, wakeboards, etc.), luggage, small furniture, small appliances, etc. Our usual weight restriction of max 20kg per item will apply for any items stored. Please contact us for a quote.
If you have any doubts or would like to store something not listed here, please just give us a call to see if we can help.

Bookings made before 3PM can be arranged between 9AM and 1PM the next day. Bookings made by 9AM can be arranged between 1PM and 6PM the same day.
Where will your driver collect my items?
We try to offer as much convenience as possible and our drivers have a very busy schedule of deliveries and collections every day. We therefore ask for items to be ready on the ground floor if there is no elevator available. If required, we can collect from your floor. This is subject to a surcharge of HK$ 20 per box or item per floor.
How do I get my belongings back?
Simple. Just log in to your RedBox account and check out ’Your belongings in storage'. Select any items that you want returned and click on 'schedule delivery'.
Please note that if you have ordered your belongings out of storage and are returning empty boxes, the return of those empty boxes is included in the HK$120 delivery fee, as long as these are handed back to our driver immediately. If we are required to return at a later date to collect empty boxes, there is a HK$120 empty box collection fee.
Can I get my belongings delivered to a different address?
Absolutely. Just enter the address you need the items sent back to and we'll deliver them there. If you want them to be delivered to another person, please enter their information. For the delivery, make sure they have a photo ID on them so that we can ensure that your belongings are being delivered to the correct person.
Can RedBox help me move?
We'd be happy to help. The prices will follow our usual pricing. You can store your items with us until your new place is ready or we can arrange to deliver them to your new apartment the same day. Oversized items can be handled as long as they are easily carried by one person. For other items, we'll try our best to help but you'll need to give us a call first so we can discuss your exact requirements.
How and when do I pay for storage and deliveries?
We have fully automated billing integrated into our system, which means you don't need to worry about paying an invoice manually every month.
You will be required to enter your credit card (Visa or MasterCard) details or link your PayPal account to your RedBox account prior to placing an order with us. We will then bill you on a monthly basis for all storage and service charges.
We work with Braintree Payments (a subsidiary of PayPal) to process all payments and your credit card details are stored securely with them.
Business users that require invoices to be issued and would like to pay by bank transfer or cheque, please contact us.
What other fees should I be aware of?
We provide free delivery of empty containers and free collection of full containers, absorbing the transportation costs and most road fees (including tunnel fees). Where we must incur parking fees in order to arrange deliveries or collections, those fees will be added to your bill.
We provide 1 free collection for each delivery of empty boxes. Any subsequent collection is charged at HK$120.
If you have ordered stuff out of storage and are returning empty boxes, the return of those empty boxes is included in the HK$120 delivery fee, as long as these are handed back to our driver immediately. If we are required to return at a later date to collect empty boxes, there is a HK$120 empty box collection fee.
Some locations will have surcharges which are listed when you place an order for boxes online.
Urgent delivery or collection requests may be subject to a surcharge of HK$150.
What are the minimum requirements?
We only require our customers to store at least 1 container with us for 1 month.
What happens if I order my items back within 1 month of putting them in storage?
We do not prorate months for storage. If you have your items returned before the next billing cycle you will not be charged for the following month. If you arrange a return within a billing cycle, you will be charged for that whole month but not the next.
What happens if I order more containers than I need?
We actually recommend you to order a couple more containers than you will need just in case you underestimate how much items you want to store. We'll collect all full and empty containers together and we'll only charge you for the storage of containers you use.
What happens if I change my mind and send back all my containers empty without storing them?
In the case that you do not have any full containers to store with us, we'll have to charge you HK$ 220 for the cost of delivering and then collecting the empty containers from you.
Is the stuff I store with you insured?
Yes. Each container is automatically insured up to HK$ 1,000.00. Higher insurance coverage can be requested by giving us a call or sending us an email. Please review our terms and conditions for more details regarding insurance and how claims would be handled.
How much do RedBox containers cost?
Use of our containers is totally free when storing items with us. You can keep empty containers for up to 7 days, after which we'll charge you as if the containers were stored with us. If you wish to keep empty containers for yourself, we'll charge you HK$ 100 per container, as well as a one off fee HK$ 120 for the delivery of those boxes to you.
What happens if I miss a payment?
While we understand there may be unforeseen circumstances that lead to a delay in payment, we will be required to impose fees for delinquent payments after a few reminders. In the case of missed payments for an extended period of 60 days, we may be left with no choice but to auction off your items in order to settle outstanding payments, administrative fees, etc. Please see our terms and conditions for further details. This is why it is always important to ensure that your contact information and credit card information is kept up to date.
What happens if I cancel or change a collection or delivery or if I am not available to receive it?
If you reschedule or cancel a collection or delivery after 6PM the day before the scheduled time, we will be required to charge you HK$120. This same fee applies for any failed deliveries or collections. As a result, it is always best to contact us as soon as possible so that we can do our best to avoid having to charge you unnecessarily. Rest assured that we will always do our best to accommodate any changes without charging you but sometimes this won't be possible if done after 6PM.
