5 Benefits That Make Shipping Containers The Best Storage Space



Whether you’re looking to renovate, move, or free up some office space, Mobile Storage Rentals knows everyone needs a safe and secure place to keep their belongings. With our steel shipping containers, we can take away the stress of having to find a suitable storage space. 

Never used a Mobile Storage container before and unfamiliar with their capabilities as a storage unit? Check out these five benefits to using a storage container.

1. YOU GET YOUR MONEY’S WORTH 

The most obvious benefit of using a shipping container, as a storage unit, is the size! The standard storage container is 8ft by 20ft, which is almost four times the average storage locker space. Mobile Storage Containers aren’t just spacy, they also cost less than other storage options that offer only a fraction of the area. Standard 5ft by 10ft storage lockers cost more than our 8ft by 10ft storage container, and that’s without the transportation of your items. When looking to move your items, Mobile Storage Rentals’ containers cost 3 times less than your average movers would charge to only transport your belongings.

2. WITH MOBILE STORAGE THE SHIPPING CONTAINER COMES TO YOU

Shipping containers are great because they’re portable and made to be transported. The ability to pack, move, and store your items all in one space is a huge benefit when it comes to finding the right storage solution for you. With Mobile Storage Rentals’ process, we bring the storage pod directly to you! Once you’ve packed the storage container, our team will take it off your hands and deliver it to our secure on-site storage facility. Are you looking to move and need the receptacle delivered there? No worries, we can also move your belongings to another location for you to unload at your pace. 

3. FLEXIBLE AS CAN BE

A significant benefit of using shipping containers for storage is how they enable you to be flexible with your plans. Are you looking to store your items off-site? Great! We’re happy to transport your belongings to our secure storage facility. Would you rather keep your belongings on your property? As long as the area has 14ft of vertical space, our delivery team is happy to place it wherever you’d like. Looking to extend your rental time? We understand projects can take longer than expected, that’s why we allow you to use your container for as long as you need.

4. DESIGNED TO TAKE A BEATING

The durability of a storage container makes your investment go a long way. Shipping containers, on average, last about 20 years and are designed to safely transport items long distances, sometimes facing harsh weather conditions along the way. And what’s best about using a steel storage pod? They’re non-combustible! Where else would you rather store your personal belongings than a weatherproof, fireproof, steel shipping container!

Mobile Storage Rentals’ containers are the largest and most secure in the industry; each one is ISO certified, waterproof, and standard for shipping dry goods all over the world. As long as your contents are securely packed, you can rest easy knowing your belongings are safe and sound.

5. SECUREST SHIPPING CONTAINERS AROUND

With storage containers being used to transport goods worldwide, you have the added security of 14 gauge, 0.075-inch corrugated sheet steel panels protecting your belongings. No one is getting into your storage container without making enough noise to alert you. If you choose to store your belongings at our secure storage facility, we have preventative measures to ensure your property is protected. Mobile Storage Rentals don’t come with locks, so consider adding it to your list.
