What are Moving Containers?

We offer moving containers and portable storage containers that are as durable as they are convenient. Our moving containers have been carefully designed to maximize how much you can store inside them while also keeping it easy to move and store the container. Packing and unpacking items out of our containers is also a breeze thanks to our design innovations, like wide-opening doors and interior tie-downs.

  • Padded wheels to prevent driveway damage when loading and moving the container
  • Pressure-treated, sealed flooring for added moisture-resistance
  • Factory-baked exterior paint to prevent container “sweating”
  • Standardized 8-foot height for easy transportation route planning
  • Ventilation ports to deter mildew growth if storing items for an extended time
  • 8-inches of ground clearance to protect items in case of rain and flooding
