What is Portable Storage?

You are here

As the name of the service implies, “portable storage” is actually a service in which a storage unit is delivered right to the customer’s address. Once the unit is loaded, it’s then picked up for secure storing within the portable storage company’s local facility where it can be accessed whenever needed. The portability of the service allows the customer (the storage renter) to avoid having to rent a truck to transport their items to a self-storage facility. The customer also saves the time and energy involved with having to load their storage into the truck as well as unloading it from the truck into the actual storage unit. "Very cool" as many customers like to say. These time, energy, and cost savings again apply at the conclusion of the storage rental as customers are able to have the storage unit simply re-delivered to their new address instead of renting, loading, and unloading a truck as they would with traditional self-storage.
