6 Savvy Ways to Save Money When Using a Portable Storage Company

by Dusty Rhodes | Mar 08, 2019

 

If you are planning a move and are looking for ways to save money, a portable storage company is definitely the way to go.  They are a fraction of the cost of hiring professional movers. In addition to being more cost efficient, they also provide unmatched convenience that will make the entire moving process less stressful.  Before booking a portable storage company, consider these tips to help you get the most bang for your buck.

 

Shop Around

Not all portable storage companies are created equal.  Therefore, it is important to shop around to be sure you are getting the most affordable option.  Request a free quote from various companies and be specific about what your needs are.  You want to ask the right questions to be sure you aren’t going to get surprised with hidden fees or additional charges. 

 

Rent Only What You Need

Most portable storage companies offer different sized containers based on your needs.  Again, it is important to take measurements and be specific about how much space you are going to use so you don’t end up paying for more than you actually need.  It is also a great idea to declutter and get rid of any unwanted items prior to moving so you aren’t wasting space packing these unnecessary items.

 

Pack Efficiently

Portable storage containers can hold much more than you might think.  This is especially true if you know how to pack them correctly.  You can save money by renting a smaller unit or only one unit.  The trick, is knowing how to pack it correctly.  Pay close attention to the way you pack the storage container and take the time to disassemble large furniture and other bulky items to make more room inside the container. 

 

Don’t Hire Professionals

It might be tempting to hire professional packers to pack and load your belongings.  However, this can be quite costly.  You can save yourself a great deal of money by packing your belongings yourself.  Get organized and start well in advance so you can give yourself plenty of time to pack on your own.  You can do a little bit each day and it will save you a lot of money in the long run.

 

Store it On-Site

The great thing about portable storage is that you have the option to store the containers on-site or store them in a storage facility.  If you don’t require long-term storage, you can save money by storing the container on-site.  You can still keep the container for as long as you need but it is a much more affordable option than storing it in a facility. 

 

Keep the Container for a Shorter Time

You pay for the amount of time that you are renting the container so if you want to save some money you will want to be cognizant of how long you keep the container.  If you load and unload in a timely manner, you won’t have to rent the container quite as long as this can be a great way to save some extra money.
