How does Clutter work?

As a full-service storage company, Clutter picks-up, stores then delivers items when needed. First-time pickups can be scheduled online or over the phone with a Clutter customer service representative. On the scheduled pickup day, a team of Clutter moving specialists arrives at your location.

Before packing, Clutter collects a digital photographic inventory of your belongings and assigns a unique barcode to each item. Then, Clutter transports the inventory to one of their secured storage facilities.

If you want to retrieve an item in the future, all you need to do is access your Clutter account and select which item you need. Clutter will then deliver the item back to you.

Clutter storage prices

Clutter prices depend significantly upon how many items need to be stored. To get a free quote for the cost of Clutter storage, fill out a brief questionnaire and provide your ZIP code, the size of storage unit you need, how you plan to move your belongings into storage, how long you plan to use the storage unit, and the date you need the storage unit. Review a variety of pickup time options, and if the Clutter price is acceptable, submit your email address.

Please note that Clutter charges a deposit for the first pickup. The first month of storage is charged after pickup, and then billing is automatic. If you ever need to update your billing information, you can easily log in to your Clutter account and update your default for automatic payments.

    Eduardo H and Chris O helped us move out of our apartment and it was a huge relief. Usually, we just move ourselves and typically scratch or bang up our pieces. Thankfully Eduardo and Chris took the time to carefully package all of our [very heavy] furniture and bring it to the storage unit for us. I also constantly found more stuff for them to move and they were very happy to package them as we went. They even helped me remove some stuff from our walls which was definitely not part of the job description. This was definitely worth the money. Eduardo and Chris were very helpful and respectful the entire time. Highly recommend!!!!

    I originally booked with a company called MakeSpace, which was then acquired by Clutter, because it promised a full-service experience for extra stuff we wanted to store—packing, pick-up, and junk hauling. The junk hauling part was not exactly as promised but for the past four years, the storage was fine. Since Clutter started increasing the monthly prices so much, I decided to end my contract and booked a self-storage unit much closer to our home. The process of ending our contract and arranging for a time and date to move units was seamless and easy; the guys who delivered and moved our stuff into our new unit, Anthony G, Arnold R, and Yoseph M, were friendly, prompt, and professional. I can recommend Clutter for the process; however, many won’t want to pay the monthly fees. (Our self-storage unit is less than half of what we were paying Clutter.)

      If a moving experience can be wonderful ours was today! Our moving team was made up of six great guys - Donta, James, Ronell, Edwardo. Richard A., and Arnold. They were professional, courteous, and repeatedly went above and beyond to make our move as smooth as possible. They took care of several beds that required taking apart and reassembling. They helped with getting things placed just right at the new house. Came up with a creative way to get a chair into a room we never thought it would go into and saved my husband's plan for his office. And to top it all off, they made what could have been a stressful, crazy day a lot of fun! Using Clutter was my daughter and son-in-law's suggestion and I'm very glad we listened to them. Doing it all online was a different experience for this baby boomer, but Clutter had a good model and I'm happy to recommend it. Thanks again to our team!

      I recently moved with the help of Luis, Levance, and Alfredo, and I couldn't be more satisfied. Luis's organizational skills ensured everything was packed securely. Levance handled the heaviest items with ease, showcasing his strength and resourcefulness. Alfredo's calm and friendly demeanor made the entire process stress-free. Their teamwork and communication were outstanding, making the move quick and efficient. They went above and beyond to ensure everything was smooth. I highly recommend Luis, Levance, and Alfredo for any moving needs. Their professionalism, efficiency, and positive attitudes made my move a truly positive experience. Thank you, gentlemen!

      10/10 experience. I’ve used Clutter for several years now to store individual items or boxes. This time I used them to move my stuff from a 2 bedroom apartment into storage as I plan to travel for about a year. The team was very professional and showed up on time, were very efficient with packing and moving and brought all the needed materials (boxes, tape, bubble wrap etc) for the big items and the fragile items. They packed all the rooms and loaded the truck in 2 hours and an hour later my stuff was in my storage unit. I was able to get air conditioning storage from Clutter for some more sensitive items like my TV. Would highly recommend and I’ll continue to use them for my moving/storage needs.

      Jaylen M, Ron M, and Wondo W were AMAZING!! They moved our entire apartment carefully and quickly! All of our items arrived at our new apartment in great condition. All the guys were kind, friendly, and professional. Our job was estimated at 8 hours + and they completed it in under 6 hours. I’d love to use this exact same crew next time I move! 100% recommend and am so thankful for such a smooth moving day experience. Thank you!!!

      Teresa, Ron, and Oscar were amazing! They were so kind and thorough. I felt really confident with my things in their hands. They re-parked to get closer, wrapped my things with care. It was great to learn a little about them and I’ll definitely be back next year for another great year with Clutter.
