What Is Portable Storage?
Portable storage lets you pack your at your own pace! Each container is 8′ deep by 7′ tall by 5′ wide and can hold up to 3,500 pounds. Unlike moving vans that you have to access via a narrow loading ramp, our portable storage containers sit just 6″ off of the ground. You walk into them just like you would a room—making it much safer for you and your furniture. Each container will hold approximately one and a half rooms of your belongings, including your larger items such as appliances and mattresses and box springs.
You don’t have to worry about security. Each container comes with two butterfly clamps and a sliding hasp which can accommodate a padlock or combination lock. The containers are durable, too. They are constructed of wood so the area can breathe, but are protected from the elements by an all-seasons, weather-resistant cover.
