Whether you are on the threshold of moving across the country or you need temporary storage during a home renovation, mobile storage companies offer solutions for all of your needs.  Portable moving containers offer a convenient alternative to renting a moving truck or hiring professional movers.  They are also an ideal solution for additional storage during a home remodeling project.  If you are considering renting a portable storage container, here are few things that you should know so you can make an informed decision.

How Does Mobile Storage Work?

You start by calling a mobile storage company and informing them about your storage needs.  Once they have an idea of what your needs are, they can arrange for you to rent a container that will meet your needs.  The portable container is delivered directly to your home and left at your disposal for a prearranged period of time.  You can then pack and prepare your items for storage.  On moving day, the portable container will be picked up by the storage company and delivered to your new location.  You can unpack at your leisure and schedule to have the container taken away when you are ready. (containers can even be transported long-distance if needed)

How Much Does it Cost?

The price will vary depending on what size container you rent and how long you will be renting it.  That said, portable storage is a much more affordable option for moving than hiring professional movers.  Most mobile storage companies should be able to provide you with a free quote prior to the rental.

Are My Belongings Safe?

You can rest assured that your belongings will be safe while stored in a portable container.  The units feature an interior wooden structure that provide added protection against rust and prevent mold and mildew.  You also have the ability to lock the container to prevent theft.  When the containers are transported, it is done by professionals who use specialized equipment to ensure the safety of your belongings.  If you are using long-term storage, your belongings will remain safe and secure in a temperature-controlled facility.

What are the Benefits of Using a Mobile Storage Company?

One of the greatest benefits of mobile storage is convenience.  The containers are delivered right to your door, giving you the flexibility to pack and unpack at your leisure.  You also have the convenience of having them delivered to your new location, where you can keep them as long as you need and work at your pace.  Portable moving containers also provide a great solution if you need temporary storage.  This is perfect for college students who are home for the summer or homeowners who are remodeling.  There are also long-term storage options available if needed.   Lastly, they are much easier on the budget than hiring a full-service moving company.
