Choosing the Right Go Mini's for Your Move

Choosing the Right Go Mini's for Your Move

Planning a DIY move and trying to figure out which Go Mini's container size fits your needs? Picking the right size is key to keeping your belongings safe during the move. Let's check out some simple tips for choosing the perfect Go Mini's container based on the size of your move.

Choosing the Right Size for Your Move

When determining which Go Mini's size is right for your move, consider the following:

  • The number of rooms in your current home: As a general rule, two rooms of furniture will fit into a 12-foot container, three to four rooms in a 16-foot container, and four to six rooms in a 20-foot container.

  • The size of your furniture: If you have large or bulky items, such as sofas or mattresses, you may need a larger container than the number of rooms would suggest.

  • The distance of your move: If you are moving long-distance, it's always better to opt for a slightly larger container to ensure that all your belongings fit comfortably and securely.

  • Your budget: While larger containers may provide more space, they also come at a higher cost. Consider your budget when selecting the size of your Go Mini's container

Our Portable Storage Container Sizes

At Go Mini's, we offer three sizes of portable storage containers:

  • 12-foot container: This container is great for small apartment moves or storing items from a single room. It can hold up to 1-3 rooms' worth of furniture and boxes.

  • 16-foot container: Our medium-sized container can accommodate the contents of a 2-3 bedroom home, including furniture, appliances, and boxes. It's a perfect choice for a moderate-sized move or storage during a home renovation.

  • 20-foot container: Our largest container can hold the contents of a 3-4 bedroom home. It's ideal for large moves or storing items from multiple rooms in your house.

No matter what size you choose, our containers are designed to be weather-resistant and secure, with steel construction and easy-to-use doors.

Our biggest option, the 20-foot Go Mini's container, is a real game-changer for handling big moving tasks. This size was the first 20-foot portable storage container ever offered by a national franchise, raising the bar for easy and effective moving and storage solutions. The 20-foot container is just right for:

  • Full-Home Moves: Whether you're moving a large family home or have an extensive array of belongings, the 20-foot container provides ample space for a smooth transition.

  • Storage for 4-6 Rooms: If you have a considerable amount of household items to store during a move or renovation, this size can easily cater to your requirements.

The 16-Foot Container

Our 16-foot container strikes the perfect balance for mid-sized moving and storage needs. It's tailored for various scenarios and is an ideal match for:

The 12-Foot Container
