Storage unit placement and packing.
Storage unit placement.
Our delivery equipment is very mobile and we can place your storage units practically anywhere (learn more about placement options).
Please keep in mind that if you live in community houses or appartments with the housing association or management company overseeing the property, and, would like our storage units placed on the property, please make sure to contact your association to obtain their consent prior to scheduled delivery.
If you plan on placing your storage units on the street, please make sure to reserve the spot by parking your vehicle where you want the units to be placed. Please note that some municipalities may require a permit.
Please contact us so that we can assist you in determining the best placement for your units.
We need 8’ of width and 8’ – 2” of height clearance to place our units. Should you consider placement of your units in an underground garage, car port or any other area where there may be height or width restrictions, please make sure that the above minimum height and width clearance requirements are met.
What can be packed inside the storage unit.
Box-n-go storage units are 5’ wide x 8’ long x 7’ high as measured on the outside. The inside dimensions of the unit are slightly smaller. Each storage unit can be packed with about 1½ rooms worth of furniture and belongings. If you are storing tools, file boxes or books the weight limitation is 2000#. That’s about 50 to 60 file boxes.
There are certain items that you do not want to pack inside the storage unit. These usually include important documents, valuables, perishable items and chemicals (see a full listing here).
