Do I Need a Metal Storage Unit?

Do you have something you need to store? From boats to household items, people use storage units to hold items they can’t keep in their home. Some people use storage units to hold excess items that won’t fit in their homes or office. A storage unit could be used to hold items during a move or during an off-season. Here are some important facts about metal storage units.

What is a Metal Storage Unit?

Storage units come in all different sizes and types. Portable units can be stored on your location, making them more adaptable to a wider range of needs. Metal storage units are some of the most durable and reliable containers, since they are made from heavy-duty materials (like steel).

Are There Drawbacks to Metal Storage Units?

Everything has a downside and metal storage units are on the heavy side. They can be too heavy to be moved without the help of special equipment, like a heavy duty forklift or crane. This may hinder personal use of larger metal storage units, but when we can deliver it to  your location for you, equipment for moving the container won’t be a true problem.

What are the Advantages of a Metal Storage Container?

Storing items in a metal storage unit should make them well-protected against pests—especially rodents, like mice or rats. There is no way for them to be chewed, burrowed or broken open by an animal looking for a space to live or food to eat. They are also wind and water resistant.

If you believe your job might be best suited to a metal storage unit, you will have the ability to choose just about any size.

“Great service! Carol is the best person to work with when you are having to have multiple locations and multiple containers being moved around. The drivers go above and beyond when it comes to getting the containers placed in the right spots. An example would be when you give these drivers maps to go by, they pull place the containers right where it goes and if does not look right to them in placement, they will contact me before doing anything and if I marked the map wrong, they are always helpful. Been working with these guys for over 10 years so would not go anywhere else.” - Josh
