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

If you’re looking for movers in Minneapolis, the first step toward a smooth move is figuring out how to efficiently pack and store your belongings. An 8-foot moving container, while the smallest option, is still very roomy. An 8-foot rental storage container is comparable to a 5 x 10 storage unit or a 10-foot moving truck. This is the best size if you have approximately 500 square feet of living space and the personal items, furniture, and boxes that come with that. 

An 8 foot storage container works well for:

  • College students attending or transferring from institutions like the University of Minnesota, Macalester, or Augsburg College
  • Individuals moving to or from a studio apartment or shared living situation
  • Home remodelers or “DIY-ers” looking to clear out and store the contents of a room for construction or improvements

16-foot storage container

Finally, the largest available size of rental moving containers is the 16-foot option, which holds items from up to 1,200 square feet of living space, including multiple beds, dressers, lamps, tables, and more — essentially the contents of a typical two- to three-bedroom home. This size of the rented container is roughly the size of a parking space and comparable to a 10 x 15 storage unit or a 20-foot moving truck. 

A 16-foot storage container works well for:

  • Large families with children, looking to move or relocate in the Minneapolis, MN, area
  • Individuals downsizing family homes or estates that are readying homes for the market
