Benefits of Portable Storage For Remodeling

People often face storage problems and aren’t always aware of how easy some of them are to solve.  It used to be that if you were remodeling your home you might have to jam all your furniture into the garage which would push a lot of stuff out onto the driveway for a few weeks.  Or else, you might have to pack your stuff up and take it to a local storage facility which you’d have to lease for a month or more.  There was also a major transportation hassle because, if you didn’t own a pick up, you had to rent a truck or trailer to load the furniture onto, then you had to rent one again for the return trip later!

Plus, a lot of people don’t feel comfortable with their stuff stored away from their home.  There’s always a risk of theft or fire at an unsupervised storage place.  Fortunately there is an easy alternative that’s a smart solution: portable storage.

Portable storage is a method where a company delivers a portable storage unit right to you and you fill it, lock it and keep it right on your property. Portable storage is easy because the company does all the work; they drop the unit and pick it back up.  You just fill it. Portable storage is cheaper too because you can lease the portable storage unit for short periods of time.

What should you look for in a portable storage company and product?  Price is a factor but more importantly is security and quality construction for weather proofing.  The best portable storage units have feet that keeps them off the ground, are all metal construction and have door that's strong and weather tight.  Before you lease, go to the company’s site and examine the portable storage units in person.
