Get the Facts Save Some Stacks

Portable storage containers have become increasingly popular and for good reason: they offer smart, convenient, and affordable options for moving and storage. Despite their popularity, there are still several myths about these storage containers that might be confusing to prospective customers. Here we will take a look at some of the most common myths and provide facts that should help clear up any confusion.


Myth #1: They are only used for moving.

While portable storage containers were initially designed to allow for easier moving, they have evolved into much more over the years. People and businesses have found them useful for a number of different reasons.

*They provide extra storage for homeowners who are in the middle of a renovation project.

*Contractors use them to store materials and equipment on job sites.

*Business may use them for additional storage for items like signage, inventory, equipment, or extra furniture.

*They provide a much needed storage space for homeowners who are deep cleaning or organizing their home.

These are just a few of the many ways in which a portable storage unit can be useful in addition to moving.


Myth #2: They are expensive.

Many people assume that the rental costs for a portable storage unit will be more expensive than hiring movers but the truth is these storage containers are a much more cost effective option than hiring professional movers. Most moving companies charge hundreds or even thousands of dollars to move while most portable storage companies charge a flat rate for rental, delivery, and pick up.


Myth #3: Your Belongings Will Not Be Safe

Portable storage containers are built to withstand both mother nature and possible thieves. They are made of steel which keeps them safe from wind, rain, snow, and hail. Furthermore, they have tough locks on each unit and you have the key so no one will be able to open the container other than you. You can rest assured your belongings will be safe from moisture, mildew, and theft while inside a portable storage container.


Myth #4: They are Only Useful for Temporary Storage

The great thing about portable storage containers is the flexibility. They can be rented for a short or long period of time. They are perfect for short-term storage needs such as moving, home renovations, or festival storage but they can also be used for long-term storage if you need extra storage space for your home or business. Simply arrange to have your portable storage container delivered to a storage facility where it will remain safe and secure for as long as you need.
