What is Portable Storage

Portable storage containers are an affordable, flexible, and convenient mobile storage solution. They are large, secure, weather-resistance boxes that can hold everything from large pieces of furniture to small personal items. They can then be delivered to a self storage facility or to your new home or business.

These containers can work for residential or commercial moving and storage.

How Does Portable Storage Work

Mobile storage rental is easy and convenient. These containers are changing the landscape of the storage industry and can work for residential or commercial moving and storage.

Get Your Unit

The portable storage unit is conveniently delivered to your location. In most cases, you don’t even have to be present to meet the driver.

Pack Your Unit

With convenient ground-level loading, you can get your container packed in no time. If you need help with packing and loading, we can recommend local companies.

Store Your Unit

You can either keep your mobile storage unit at your location or in our secure warehouse. We offer both short- and long-term storage options at our secure warehouse.

Onsite Storage: We deliver a portable storage unit to your location, and you load the unit at your pace. When done, simply unload your belongings and notify us for pickup of the empty storage unit.

Offsite Storage: We deliver a portable storage unit to your location, and you pack it at your convenience. When you’re finished, we bring the filled unit back to our secure, climate-controlled storage facility. If you need access to your belongings at any point, give us a call and we’ll make sure your unit is accessible. When you’re ready to unload your moving container, we deliver it back to your location where you unload it and call us for the final pickup.

Move Your Unit

Moving with portable storage units is more convenient and affordable than hiring traditional movers or renting a truck for a DIY move. Portable storage units are delivered to you where you can load in your own driveway. When you’re finished, our drivers will pick up your storage container and either take it to an off-site storage facility or deliver it directly to your new address.
