uBoxes launched their business in 2004. The initial concept was offering online moving and packaging supplies with great pricing and free shipping to the doorsteps of their customers. Soon after uBoxes became an innovative and consumer friendly company with an emphasis on great customer service. The breakthrough for uBoxes came right after they first pioneered the moving box kits that included all the necessary boxes and packing supplies by the number of the rooms. The moving kits were designed in four different style kits for dorm room to 10 room kits:
- Economy Moving Kit – This kit was designed for the bare bones mover who wanted boxes but few packing materials
- The Basic Moving Box Kit – The contents included the basic necessities to move
- Bigger Boxes Moving Kit – This set was for the mover who had more than average contents to pack and move needing bigger boxes and more packing supplies
- The Wardrobe Box Kit – Designed for the household moving their dry cleaning, designer clothes. The Wardrobe Boxes act like the concept of having a portable closet wardrobes which can be easily packed and unpacked
