Moving can seem like an insurmountable task, considering you have to pack every single one of your belongings and move them from one place to another. For those who prefer a more DIY method, moving can be even more stressful. It’s one thing to pack and load dozens of boxes but what about those larger items that aren’t so easy to move? Luckily, a portable storage unit can be a convenient solution for moving large and bulky items. Here are three examples of large items that are ideal to be moved in a portable storage unit.


Sofa or Couch

Not everyone has access to a truck, and even those who do might not want to load their couch into a dirty truck bed. Not only is it difficult to lift a heavy piece of furniture in and out of a truck bed, but your couch is subject to damage from the outdoor elements as it is being moved. A portable storage unit is a great solution for moving large items such as a couch or sofa. The easy ground level loading makes it easy to move your couch in and out without straining your back. You can also rest assured your couch will be safe from damage since it will be inside a weatherproof container.



Large appliances such as refrigerators, freezers, washers, and dryers can be heavy and difficult to transport. These items are certainly not easy to lift up and down a steep ramp. Portable storage units are ideal for moving these items because you can easily load and unload them at ground level. Furthermore, portable storage companies use a specialized lift system to move the unit which minimizes jostling during transport and will help to prevent damage.


Large Televisions

Many people own large flat screen TV’s and it is important to take the right precautions when moving these large electronics. Many of these TV’s are too large to fit into cars or trucks and they require additional space. You also want to make sure your electronics aren’t susceptible to outdoor elements. It is also important to make sure they are carefully wrapped in order to prevent damage during transport. A portable storage unit is ideal for moving large TV’s because you can secure them inside the unit to prevent jostling. They will also be safe and secure in a weatherproof unit so you can rest assured your TV won’t get damaged by rain or fluctuations in temperature.
