Company History

Even though Platinum Services, Inc. (the parent company of Cubby Mobile Storage) may have officially been established in 2005, its history goes back many decades and multiple generations.

Joseph Smoot established Smoot Brothers Transfer in 1946, after completing 16 years of loyal service with the United States Army, the majority of which were spent serving in the European theater.

Mr. Smoot launched Guardian Moving and Storage in 1952, which became one of the first local, Baltimore moving companies, providing local, long distance, and international moving services. They also specialized in providing long-term storage solutions for the Department of Defense.

Joseph Smoot and his wife raised five children in the Bel Air Edison district of Baltimore. Their three sons took over the day-to-day operations of the moving company in 1976. Under the leadership of the Smoot sons, Guardian Moving and Storage became one of the largest contractors for the Department of Defense, while continuously providing relocation services for federal, state, and local government agencies.

Introducing Cubby Mobile Storage

Continuing the family tradition, Mario Smoot, one of the three Smoot brothers, decided to launch a moving service that would further meet the personalized needs of individuals, businesses, and agencies.

With the assistance of the third generation of the Smoot family, Mario has been delivering the custom and enhanced moving and storage solutions that clients throughout Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, DC need through Platinum Services and Cubby Mobile Storage.

From the beginning, Cubby Mobile Storage has been dedicated to fulfilling all of your mobile storage and on-site storage needs. We have built a name for ourselves as the best choice for short-term or long-term storage of your furniture and/or other belongings as well as providing assistance for your relocation needs.

We’ve developed a system of services, including on-site storage unit rentals, trailer rentals for local moves, and full moving and storage services for cross-country or international moves. We have built our reputation on providing our customers – both residential and commercial – with the best storage and moving solutions for their needs.

If you need to store furniture in Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC, for a long or short time, we have a weatherproof container for you. We can deliver them for you to load, or we can load them and unload them for you, whenever you need it.
