Renting storage containers or storage units: What is better?

Self storage containers can be very convenient for different occasions. The containers are large and useful for different situations. They are often being used by:

  • Construction companies that want to temporarily store their stuff externally.
  • Large event organizers who want to store their equipment before or after the event.
  • Hospitality companies: if they want to store their terrace during the winter for example.
  • People who need a safe place for their personal belongings.
  • People who need temporary storage while moving or renovating.

The container walls are made of steel and therefore you do not have to worry about the safety of your belongings. Ideal if you are moving or want to store your belongings. Are you looking for a short-term solution? Then container rental is the best solution for you.

Benefits of self storage containers

  1. It is portable.
    One of the biggest benefits of renting a container has to be the fact that it is portable. You can take it with you wherever you may be moving to. If you are moving from one house to another, moving your company from one location to another or even just a temporary move, this can be a very good solution to the storage of your belongings.
  2. The containers are very big.
    Depending on what size you get, even the smallest size still has enough space in it to fill in many items. You can fit a lot of things in this space you rent, so it can be very convenient, especially if you are decluttering your home or planning on having a spring cleaning of your house or business.
  3. Renting a container can be of multiple use.
    You can make it your at-home office, combine it with your seasonal items or even have your inventory next to your office if you are starting a business. The perfect solution for someone with a small budget trying to get the most out of their money.
  4. Always have access to your stuff.
    Renting a container also means that you always have access to it, since it will be right in your backyard. No need to make an appointment or go to the storage place to get your things, they are right in your backyard.  

These are all the advantages of renting a container, however there are some disadvantages as well.

Disadvantages of container rental

  1. Overpaying for space you don’t use.
    By renting a container, you are paying for such a big space, that you may not even need. Why pay extra? Renting a storage unit with BOXIE24 you pay for what you actually use, nothing more.
  2. It takes a lot of space.
    Besides the issue of space, you will also have to find a place to put it at and this is no easy task with such a huge container. It will almost certainly be in the way, no matter where on your property you put it at. 
  3. Can’t adjust the temperature.
    Containers are sturdy because they are made of steel, but that also means that it does get colder inside. When you want to isolate it better, it costs more time and money. In addition, more moisture is created when you insulate a container. That’s why a lot of people prefer a storage unit.
  4. No extra security. 

Unlike a lot of storage facilities, containers don’t have extra camera security or personal protection. And if you store stuff in there, you want it to be secured all the time.
