If you are in the market for an easy packaging solution, why not consider mobile storage over more conventional alternatives? There are many advantages beginning with flexibility, sheer ease of use and convenience too – no more worrying about your precious goods being loaded and then unloaded again onto and off trucks. No direct handling of your goods by unfamiliar movers maximizes your security at all times.

When you have made your decision your mobile storage company will deliver a suitable storage container to your home. You load it with the items that you want stored, and once you have finished, the container will be collected and taken to the company’s storage facility, or delivered to your new home. At all times, you hold the keys.

The many advantages of mobile storage units over conventional storage include:

• No need to rent a truck and moving team.

• Simple to load and unload – ground level loading and no dangerous and difficult ramps to navigate. You may want to check with your condominium or apartment building management to get the necessary clearance to have a trailer parked outside.

• Pay only for what you use – your service provider will help you select the correct mobile storage container for your needs.

• Unlike traditional self-storage systems, only the mobile storage container moves with you, meaning you just have to pack and unpack once.

• Mobile storage allows you to store your belongings at a warehouse until you are ready - a great option if you are building a new home or relocating.

Curbside convenience at your service! With mobile storage containers you can move your stored belongings from your property to a destination of your choice any time you want. No need to worry about your possessions being at someone else’s mercy and certainly there is no need for expensive moving teams. Forget too about multiple trips across town with your own vehicle packed full of items. Mobile storage brings convenience right to your doorstep.

Not quite ready to unload all your goods? Mobile storage makes partial moves simple. Perhaps you are relocating to a new city for work or play – no problem you can move your belongings across town or across the country with mobile storage, or you can elect to store the container for as long as you want, if you are not ready yet to move into your new home. Keep your goods safely in secure, climate-controlled facilities in the mean time. With mobile storage, it is easy to move only part of your belongings to an apartment while you search for your perfect new home. The uses for mobile storage units are endless.
