Portable storage containers: When and where you need them

Tim Campbell  January 2, 2019  No Comments

The moving process is filled with a number of frustrations, including getting your belongings from point A to B. Figuring out how to transport your belongings to a new residence can be particularly stressful, especially if your new home isn’t quite ready for move-in.

Portable storage containers make your move go smoothly by helping you securely transfer your belongings at your own pace. Whether you’re moving across town, across the country or just need temporary storage, here are a few of the reasons portable storage containers are the perfect solution.

Accessibility and Convenience

In most cases, when you need a storage unit you’re forced to go out of your way to find a location to keep your belongings. Transporting things to and from your storage unit quickly becomes time-consuming and costly. Portable containers solve this problem by bringing storage space directly to your front door. This allows you to pack and unpack at your convenience, no matter how long that takes.

Our portable storage containers are approximately 16 feet long, 8 feet wide and 8 feet tall, allowing you to store the contents of a typical 1,500-square-foot home. If you need your belongings moved you won’t have to lift a finger. Movers can transport your portable storage container to your new residence, or a secure warehouse location until you’re ready to unload.

Portable storage containers aren’t just useful for moving, they can also be great for people remodeling or doing a large construction project such as installing a new floor. It’s always a challenge to figure out where you’re going to store all your stuff when you have to move it out of your kitchen or empty your home of furniture and belongings for something like new flooring. Just rent a portable storage container and you have an onsite solution where you can store loads of stuff. Best of all, it gets dropped off and picked up with little effort on your part!

Safety and Security

Like traditional warehouse storage units, portable storage containers are designed to keep your belongings as safe as possible. Waterproof materials and wall tie-downs help prevent the most common forms of damage. Portable containers are designed with both transportation and storage in mind.

Some people just aren’t comfortable with anyone else handling their belongings. While this is understandable, it does mean more work for the owners. Fortunately, portable storage containers allow for safe, do-it-yourself moving. Unlike a moving truck, the containers sit level to the ground, so there are no dangerous ramps to worry about when loading.


Portable storage containers offer a convenient moving and storage solution for your home, but can also be used in many other situations.

  • Declutter your house by storing extra furniture or belongings.
  • Use a container as on-site storage for commercial or residential construction projects.
  • Use as storage for commercial businesses such as hotels, hospitals or athletic teams.
