Why Businesses Are Turning To Portable Storage Containers For Extra Space Businesses often have problems with space and storage. Leasing space in a separate building sometimes creates logistical problems that make the option impractical. Expanding an existing building is often costly and requires years to complete. Portable storage containers are a popular choice for businesses that require more space. These containers can be kept on the property or can be loaded and then stored in another location. Using portable containers has several benefits over other storage options.
Flexible Loading Times Some storage companies schedule pickups from businesses in order to shuttle files, furniture or merchandise to a centralized warehouse in a truck. This forces businesses to assemble large collections of items in inconvenient areas like a lobby, loading dock or meeting room. This often has to happen at the last minute so that the space remains functional.
Flexible Loading Times A portable container that is placed directly outside of a business in a parking lot or other area can be loaded gradually when it is convenient. This keeps the building clear from obstructions in key areas. It also allows different departments or employees to take the time that is necessary to organize the items being placed into storage.
Simple Rotation Businesses that have a constant stream of files, computers or other items that must be moved between locations will find that portable storage containers provide a very convenient solution. A single container can be kept on the property to receive the merchandise or items that need to be taken to another location.
Simple Rotation If the container becomes full, then a storage company can drop off another container before taking away the filled unit. This gives businesses constant access to the storage container so that there are no work disruptions. This is useful for e-waste recycling, archival record storage or for storing product prototypes.
On-Site Storage A common problem for businesses is the need to keep files, furniture or merchandise on the property throughout the year. This is often because the items are needed at different points although there is no space to keep the objects inside of the main building when not in use. Portable containers allow a business to have inexpensive storage space just a few steps away from the main building.
On-Site Storage The containers are durable, secure and provide a large amount of storage. Businesses that require additional seasonal storage for incoming inventory items can use multiple containers instead of leasing an entire second building.
Convenience Portable containers are very convenient for businesses that are undergoing renovations or relocation. The containers provide a secure way to store items in an off-site location such as a long-term storage facility. The container will be safe from damage and other issues. Keeping the container off-site also allows more space for construction equipment especially if the structure of a building is being demolished for expansion.
Convenience Businesses that are relocating can keep the container in a neutral location until the new offices are ready. Alternately, the container can be taken directly to the new location where it will sit securely until unpacked after the move.
