Go Mini's vs. Rental Trucks 

If you're planning a move, you've likely considered two options: renting a moving truck or opting for a portable storage solution like Go Mini's. But what sets these two options apart, and why should Go Mini's be your go-to choice?

Comparing Your Options

Rental Moving Trucks

For many families, the idea of renting a moving truck is almost synonymous with relocating. But the process can be tedious; rent a truck, load up your stuff, hit the road, and unload at your new place, return the truck, and don’t forget to refill the gas tank! While it puts you in the driver's seat, it can be physically demanding and stressful, and let's not forget the nerve-wracking experience of handling an oversized vehicle, like a moving van.

Go Mini's Portable Storage

Looking to simplify the whole process? Wondering how our storage containers compare to trucks? Go Mini's brings a secure, weather-resistant storage container to your doorstep. You pack at your own pace, and when ready, we pick up the container and transport it to your new location or our secure storage facility.

The Go Mini's Advantage

When you choose Go Mini's over rental trucks, you enjoy several key benefits:


Forget about driving a large rental truck through busy streets. We handle all the driving. Our professional drivers deliver the container to you and pick it up when you're done.


With Go Mini's, there's no rush to pack and unpack. Keep the container as long as you need it and pack at a pace that suits your schedule.

Find the Perfect Size for You

Go Mini's offers containers in three sizes: 12, 16, and 20 feet so you can choose the unit best for your move. Unsure what size you need? Ask your local Go Mini’s professionals.

Easy Loading and Unloading

Our containers sit just 8 inches off the ground, making loading and unloading much simpler and safer than with high-floor rental trucks. Need help? We partner with Bellhop to offer hourly loading and unloading assistance.


With Go Mini's, you only pay for what you need. Our straightforward pricing means no hidden fees, mileage charges, tolls, fuel costs, or surprise insurance premiums. When you reserve your unit, you'll know exactly what you're paying for upfront.

How Does Moving with Go Mini's Work?

Book Your Container

Start by reserving your container via our straightforward, online booking system. Need help choosing between our 12-foot, 16-foot, and 20-foot container options? Your local experts are here to guide you.

Pack at Your Own Pace

You let us know exactly where you'd like your unit, we deliver it, and you pack on your own timeline. Keep your container as long as you’d like — no rush, no stress. And if you need help loading or unloading, we've partnered with Bellhop to offer hourly assistance. 

We Handle Transportation

If the idea of maneuvering a bulky rental truck has you stressed, Go Mini’s takes that off your plate by handling the transportation for you. Once you're ready, give us a call, and we'll load your packed unit onto our truck and transport it to your new location. 
Change of plans? Keep it on your property for as long as you’d like, or we can hold on to your storage unit at one of our secure storage facilities until you need it. It’s really that easy.
