4-foot storage container

It might be the baby of the bunch, but our 4-foot storage container still offers an impressive amount of storage space – up to 220 cubic feet. It’s ideal for moving items from a smaller living space or when you want to store items from one room. This size is a big hit with college students moving to campus housing for the first time. When it comes to storage space, our 4-foot container is perfect for storing or moving the contents of places that are 550 square feet or less, such as dorm rooms or studio apartments. The size is comparable to a 5 x 5 storage unit. If your still not sure whether this container is right for you, why not spend a couple of minutes and use our online calculator.

8-foot storage container

CEND’s 8-foot moving container is a good starting point for young singles or college students who have just a little to move or store. This option typically holds furniture and personal items from spaces up to 500 square feet, such as dorm rooms and studio apartments. Consider this option to move your dorm room contents back home for the summer or to move from a shared living situation into your own space. Our small moving container also works well if you’re remodeling a single room in your home. Store the furniture from the room in the container to get it out of the way while you work. You can expect about the same amount of space as a 5×10 storage unit or a 10-foot moving truck.

16-foot storage container

On the large end, the 16-foot moving container works well when moving from a home that’s up to 1,200 square feet. This would typically be a home with two or three bedrooms. You might choose this option if you’re moving your family from an apartment or home into a different space. This moving container can also accommodate all your belongings if you’re doing a complete remodel of your home. These storage containers compare to a 10×15 storage unit or a 20-foot moving truck. Each container is roughly the length of a standard parking spot, so plan for a location that can hold this large container.
