Why Choose Portable Storage over Self Storage?

If you are in need of a temporary storage solution, you may be wondering which type of storage is right for you. Should you use portable storage or a self-storage solution? In our opinion, portable storage is the better option and in this post, we’ll explain why.

Portable Storage Is More Convenient

The great thing about portable storage solutions is that you don’t have to worry about packing multiple times or renting trucks to load and unload. Portable storage units can be delivered straight to you without having to drive anywhere. This also means you can store your belongings safely at your home or property. For tips on packing a storage unit, check out this post.

Because the storage unit is at your house, you have access to your belongings whenever you want. In contrast, with self-storage, you often have to consider the hours the facility is open. Storing a portable storage unit at your home or property means you can take your time packing and unpacking. However, if you would rather store your belongings at a facility, portable storage offers this flexibility for you as well. They can pick up your portable storage unit and bring it to their nearest facility.

Portable Storage is Competitively Priced

Many portable storage solutions offer competitive pricing. The average cost of moving and portable storage is typically far less than self-storage options. In addition, there are no hidden fees. Portable storage solutions offer greater flexibility. They typically offer month-to-month agreements, unlike self-storage solutions that try to sell you on yearly agreements.

Portable Storage Offers More Personalized Service

When you choose portable storage, you can expect better service. Portable storage solutions tend to have a local staff that offers a very hands-on customer service experience. The benefits of local staff are that employees know your area well and can confidently answer all your questions. In contrast, many self-storage solutions send their customer service inquiries to a call center across the country.

UNITS – The Ultimate Portable Storage Solution

When it comes to portable storage solutions, we recommend our sister company, UNITS Orlando Moving & Portable Storage. UNITS is known for its friendly, knowledgeable staff that cares. UNITS storage solutions are built tough with steel construction making them the most weatherproof containers on the market. Many other storage units don’t offer construction as durable.
