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

Our smaller moving containers are ideal for single professionals or college students who live in smaller spaces and don’t have a ton of personal possessions yet. This is also an excellent option for those remodeling a room and looking for a better option than piling items into other rooms. To provide a sense of scale, an 8-foot container can hold the possessions in a 500-square-foot room and is comparable to a 5 x 10 storage unit, or a 10-foot moving truck.

16-foot storage container

Larger families can benefit from our biggest containers. The belongings of a family of four can typically fit in here, especially if they live in a two- to three-bedroom home with up to 1,200 square feet of living space. This container equals a 10 x 15 storage unit or a 20-foot moving truck. If you’re still struggling to imagine the exact size, think of a standard parking spot.
