Moving can be a stressful, time-consuming process, and isn’t always as simple as just packing up your stuff and leaving. Whether you are moving into a smaller home, or moving somewhere far away, you may not be able to take everything with you. As a result, you may be interested in putting these things into storage, which allows you to hold onto the things you can’t bring yourself to get rid of.
You might not be aware, however, that you have options when it comes to storage. Particularly, you have the choice of using traditional storage units or utilizing the services of portable storage companies. On-demand storage offers many benefits that traditional storage services do not such as portability, ease of use, and cost of moving.
The main benefit offered by portable storage companies is, as you might have guessed, the ability for your items to be transported wherever you need them. On-demand storage units are able to be kept at the provider’s facility, and delivered to you whenever you need them, or can be kept right on your own property.
Portable storage California is made even more practical by the spread out nature of many of California’s biggest cities. More condensed areas, such as New York, may be less practical as you might not have room for your storage unit to be delivered to you.
Ease of Use
Another one of the many benefits portable storage companies can offer that traditional storage companies cannot is ease of use. This includes accessibility, storage size, and easy loading.
Traditional storage companies often only offer a few size options which may or may not fit your needs. This can lead to you having to purchase multiple units in order to comfortably store all of your items. On-demand storage, however, can provide you with custom containers to for your storage needs.
Moreover, portable storage companies offer a solution to one of the most time-consuming aspects of moving – loading household items. Moving items into a traditional storage unit is often a long process involving loading items into a moving truck, then transporting them to storage. On the other hand, on-demand storage means you can have your storage unit delivered to your door, which dramatically reduces the time and effort required to move your items into storage.
Cost of Moving
The last major benefit of portable storage is the lower cost of moving. Rather than having to hire movers to load your items, rent a moving truck, and hiring movers once more to unload your items, portable storage means you only have to pay for the transport of your unit to your new home.
Of course, by doing it this way, you might have to load your items yourself. However, this is made much easier with a portable storage unit as they are level with the ground. This means you don’t have to use dollies or ramps to move your items.
Consider looking into the services offered by portable storage companies before you make your next move. On-demand storage comes with many benefits to make the process of moving much easier that are not provided by traditional storage companies.
At Box-n-Go our portable storage delivery equipment is designed to operate in limited access areas in order to allow placement of the units almost anywhere a car can be parked and of course most anywhere on private property for the most convenient loading/unloading, such as driveways (sloped or not), parking lots, alleys, etc. The portable storage containers fit practically anywhere the car can fit. Two Box-n-Go portable storage container placed side by side will fit into a standard parking space. If you have a specific situation that you’re concerned about, please call our storage and moving consultant to discuss the issue 1-877-269-6461.
Most standard driveways are built for two vehicles placed side by side or 16 to 20′ wide or so. This should allow placement of 3 to 4 Box-n-Go 5′-wide storage containers positioned side by side.
Although each storage unit itself is 5′ wide x 8′ long x 7′ tall he forklift that we use for maneuvering the storage units requires a clearance of 8′ in width and 8′-2″ in height. As long as a minimum height clearance of 8′-2″ is available. In some cases, when you prefer the unit to be placed in the carport, we are able to do so without having the forklift pass under the roof of the car port. In this case we only need about 7′-4″ of height clearance.
