Hello, and thank you for visiting Movers.com!

While I can't recommend a specific portable storage rental agency for your move, I can provide you with some tips to help you determine if portable storage is right for you and how to choose the best company for your needs.

What is portable storage?

Portable storage units are delivered to your home, where you can load your own belongings at your leisure. When you are ready, a driver will come to your house to pick up the unit and deliver it to your desired location--whether it's your new home or a storage facility.

How is pricing determined?

A major factor in deciding which rental company you will choose will be the price. Pricing for portable storage is determined by a variety of a factors, including:

  • Size of the unit : The bigger the container, the more you can expect to pay. Typical portable storage container sizes are 7-foot (one room's worth of belongings), 12-foot (two to three rooms' worth of belongings) and 16-foot (three to four room's worth of belongings).
  • Length of time: Most portable storage companies charge a monthly rate, with a one-month minimum.
  • The distance you are moving: You will pay a delivery charge to have the container brought to your home and another to have it delivered to your new home or storage facility.

Some companies may have a distance limit, so be sure to inquire if they can meet your needs.
