You may have seen the ads for portable storage containers and wondered whether one was right for you. Here are four reasons why you may want to use one for your next move:
If you’ve ever loaded a moving truck yourself, then you know all about the difficulty of getting all your things up a ramp. Portable moving containers eliminate the risk by providing easy-entry, ground level loading. You simply carry your furniture into the container and stack it on the bottom, the same way you’d move it to a new room.
It’s Cost Effective
Moving containers offer a much less expensive moving alternative when compared with using a professional moving company. You can move your items into the container and pack and arrange at your convenience. You can make sure that your items are loaded exactly how you want, in a way that makes sense to you. Once you’re ready, the moving company will stop by, pick up the container and deliver it to your new site. All you are paying for is the container rental and the delivery. You don’t need to pay professionals for hours of work to move your furnishings.
Flexible Storage Solutions
You can move as much or as little as you need with one simple solution. Even better, if you don’t want the stress of packing and loading within a limited amount of time, you can get the unit delivered to your home and take as long as you need to load it up or to unload it when you are done.
Safety and Security
When you use moving containers, the portable storage container is dropped off at your premises and only you have the key for your individual unit or units. Fill it up and lock it up and your valuable items are safe and secure for the entire trip until you unlock the door of the container at your new place and start unloading. The moving trucks that pick up your filled moving container do so with a specialized lift system that minimizes shifting of the contained items, helping make sure that your precious possessions stay intact!
Moving with a traditional full-service method is sometimes the only way to go. Portable storage containers provide you with yet another great option that just may work best for your next move.
