For many people making a move means putting things into storage, which often means loading up a moving truck with all of your items, driving the truck to your new home, unloading the items you need and then driving the truck to a rented storage garage and unloading items you won't be using for awhile into the storage garage. One way to save yourself a little extra work is to rent a portable storage container.
A portable storage container can be delivered to your home, it only takes up about the size of a regular parking space, where you can then load it with the items you want to put into storage. Once that is done, the portable storage container will then be driven (by someone other than yourself- someone who works for the portable storage company) to a secure storage center where your items will be stored until you need them. If you ever need to get your secure portable storage container you can call 24 hours before to have it made available to you. If you want it delivered to your new location, you would call and set up a date to have the storage container delivered to your new home. You may also choose to have your portable storage container stay where it is or sent to your new home without having to put it in a secure storage center.
Portable storage containers take out a lot of the work that comes with placing things into storage.
