We’ll beat any portable storage quote. Guaranteed.
Our residential onsite moving containers are ideal for various situations. They are perfect for extra storage, home remodeling, and moving to a new location.
Our pricing has two components:
1) The monthly container rental fee
2) The all-inclusive delivery fee.
Detailed pricing can be found on our Pricing Page.
Our all-inclusive delivery fee covers all aspects of moving the container throughout the duration of your rental. This includes dropping off the container, relocating (if moving), transporting to/from our facility (for off-site storage), and the final pickup at the end of the rental.
We feel having an all-inclusive delivery fee helps gives customers a fully transparent view of the total cost.
Our competitors typically charge you every time they move your container. Most people only see the first month’s rent and initial drop off fee, which means they will likely incur hundreds more in delivery fees that they weren’t aware of at the time of booking. That’s not right! Our pricing is upfront and fully transparent to avoid any pricing surprises.

Why Use Mobile Storage Solutions
Moving or storing your belongings can be stressful, expensive, and inconvenient.
At Mobile Storage Solutions, we bring the storage to you! The result is a personalized moving and storage experience that gives you peace of mind, is convenient, and affordable.
We deliver a storage unit to your address. You pack at your own pace with easy ground level loading. Then choose to store the container at your location, at our secure warehouse, or have us move it to a new location for you. It’s that simple!
Versus other portable storage companies: Best in class customer service at price points well below our competitors like PODS®, UNITS®, and 1-800-Pack-Rat. Affordable monthly rental rates with no hidden fees or nickel and diming. We only charge a one-time delivery fee at the end of your rental, not every time we touch your container like our competitors.
Versus fixed self-storage: No renting a moving truck, loading and unloading, or trying to navigate narrow hallways and elevators with heavy furniture on a dolly like at a self-storage facility. Simply load and unload your belongings once at the convenience of your home. Easily access your belongings by visiting our secure location just as you would for fixed self-storage.
Versus shipping containers: Shipping containers are bulky, expensive, and can’t safely transport your goods without damage. Our container and delivery system best protects your belongings, at a significantly lower price.
Versus professional movers: Did you know that the average cost to move in 2020 was $1,500? Our services are a fraction of the price and are contactless, which means greater peace of mind during the packing and moving process.

It’s quite simple. We deliver a portable storage unit to your location. You pack it at your own pace. You keep the storage unit at your own place or we can take it to a storage facility. We can then pick up your storage unit and deliver it to the new location.
