The most common way to store office or home items is to use a self-storage facility. The items are kept in rented or leased units in these facilities, usually for a long period of time. Recently, however, another option is gaining popularity – the portable storage container. This type of container is actually a very efficient way of creating storage space. It is more flexible than traditional storage containers since it can be moved easily from one place to another.
Using a Portable Container
A portable storage container can serve a lot of purposes. The main one is obviously to have a bulk of things transported from one site to another. Since it still has the integrity of the traditional storage containers, you can be sure that your items will be safe during the move. This is especially important if you have important items that need careful handling.
A portable storage container is especially useful for residential clients who need to move from one place to another. Once the storage container is delivered to you, you will be given time to fill it up with your things at your leisure. When you are done packing up, it will be picked up and will be transported to the new address where you can unpack it as long as you need to. The container will then be picked up after everything is unpacked.
These portable storage containers still aim to maximize space so that you can put as much as you can in it. The only added perk is that it is, as the name implies, easier to move. We do not compromise the grade of materials used in our containers so you are sure that your items will remain safe and secure inside.

Comparing Portable Storage Containers with Self-Storage Units
Portable storage containers also trump self-storage units in a number of points of comparison. Of course, it goes without saying that one of these points is portability. You are not stuck to one offsite storage location. You can simply make arrangements to change the onsite storage location of your portable storage container.
Self-storage units in third party offsite storage locations require you to drive a distance from your home or office to get to the facility. Often, there are also security issues that usually come from the location being “offsite” or away from the general population. Using portable storage containers that you can put nearby gives you the benefits of accessibility, convenience, and security.
There is very little that you can do to self-storage units. Perhaps you can bring in your own shelving units and air cooler, but that’s just about it. You cannot customize these units to your needs and preferences. Portable storage containers, on the other hand, can be designed and tailor-fit to suit your requirement. This gives you more flexibility with the way you use your storage container.
Not all self-storage units have 24/7 security. Some clients reluctantly take the risk and pray that no one is going to break into their units. Since portable storage containers can be located onsite, you can choose an area where your container unit will be secure. You can also purchase a container with a state-of-the art lock box for added security.
The availability of an affordable yet reliable portable storage container is a great convenience for businesses and residents alike. The ease of having extra space readily available is such an underrated advantage. The amount of time, energy, and money you save by making use of this advantage can very well be spent on other more important and productive undertakings.
