On your worksite, you’ve got a job to do and sometimes that job requires a lot of … stuff.
So, what do you do when the amount of stuff you need dwarfs the amount of space you have?
Chances are, if you’re like most people, you Googled something like, “storage space near me” and were suddenly inundated with an endless stream of results promoting local storage units and portable storage options.
Now, the question is, what’s the difference and which one is right for me?

Before we begin comparing storage units to storage containers, it’s probably a good idea to define exactly what each of those terms actually means.
Storage units are typically housed within a large outdoor complex or within a multiple-story building that you must gain access to in order to enter. These facilities are usually centrally located and can contain hundreds of individual units.
Portable storage containers, on the other hand, are probably what you think of as “shipping containers.” Constructed of heavy-gauge steel, with lockable swing-out cargo doors, these multi-sized containers can be delivered directly to your job site. They will be picked up, and either delivered to where you need them next, or simply returned when you’re done.
There are a lot of different factors that can go into deciding whether a storage unit or a portable storage container will best meet your needs. Below are a few things we think you should consider before signing on the dotted line.
Typically come in a variety of sizes ranging from 5’ x 5’ up to 10’ x 30’
Come in sizes ranging from 8’ x 10’ all of the way up to 8’ x 40’
