    • What type of lock should I use on my container? Does Go Mini's provide this?

      You will need a lock to keep your belongings secure in your Go Mini's container. While some of our locations have locks available for sale, you may also choose to purchase your own.

    • Is there a weight limit?

      Yes, each Go Mini's container has a specific weight limit based on its size. It's essential to distribute the weight evenly throughout the container for safe transport. Please contact your local Go Mini's for more details.

    • Are there insurance and protection options?

      At the time of booking, you’ll be asked if you would like to add any insurance coverage to your order. Once you sign and return the form, you’ll be enrolled and the coverage will begin as soon as your container arrives. Our insurance program is offered and managed through Carstin Insurance. Once enrolled, you’ll be mailed a certification of insurance directly from Carstin; all claims are handled directly through them.
