Portable Storage vs. Stationary Storage
At SMARTBOX, we couldn’t be happier to provide Maryland homeowners with our industry-leading portable storage systems. But what are the benefits of portable storage say, versus traditional stationary storage facilities? Our experts are here to clue you in on the big perks and benefits portability provides!
Portable Storage or Stationary Storage?
Until more recently, stationary storage was pretty much your only option. No matter if you were moving, or just trying to declutter your home, all items had to be hauled by the strength of your own back. This meant a lot of back and forth, a lot of time wasted, and a lot less opportunity for you to get things done in general.
But then portable storage came along! At first, portable storage had limited applications. Units were generally rather small, and while a sight more convenient, they also came with a considerable price tag and lacked the temperature-controlled benefits of modern stationary facilities. But those, we can happily say, are problems of the past. Modern portable storage systems are ample in size, the cost is nearly the same (or exactly the same, depending on your service provider), and temperature-controlled environments are available for both types of storage.
So what gives portable storage in Maryland a leg up over traditional storage methods? The biggest and most beneficial benefit is most certainly convenience!
What Makes Portable Storage Convenient?
Think about the activities involved in using stationary storage. You would have to procure a truck first off. Then load it, transport it, unload it, return, and rinse and repeat until you had stored everything you needed to. Portable storage, on the other hand, cuts all of that out!
Portable storage is delivered right to your door (or street/driveway, we should say) by the storage provider. And when you’ve loaded them up, a simple phone call is all that is required for our experts to come right back out and transport your stored items, whether that be to your destination, or to our temperature-controlled storage facilities.
And that’s not all portable storage does. Portable also offers:
- Easy scheduling. During a move, or even just a spring cleaning, you’ve got enough on your plate without having to worry about inflexible truck or storage rentals. Portable storage can be kept on your premises for as long as you need it. Want to load up and store items weeks in advance of your move? You can do that!
- Versatility. Your items are packed up and stored, but where do you go from there? Do you want to unpack in a single day, or would the assurance of having your items safe and secure in our facilities until you need them benefit you more? You’ve got options; options that we’re happy to provide.
- Security and safety. Our facilities are equipped with top-class modern temperature control systems, and are exceedingly secure. If you need somewhere safe for your items to stay for days, weeks, months, while you get your new home settled, you can rest assured you’ve got the security you need.
