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 containers are comparable in size and capacity to a 5 x 10 storage unit or a 10-foot moving truck. They fit the contents of a studio apartment or a room roughly the size of 500 square feet. These are just some examples of what can fit inside:

  • Boxes
  • Tables and chairs
  • Couches when stood on end
  • Mattress sets
  • Appliances, such as a washer and dryer
  • Sports equipment
  • Seasonal decorations

An 8-foot moving container is ideal for college students who need to pack up and move the contents of their dorm room to or from school. It’s also an excellent solution for storage when you remodel a single room.

16-foot storage container

The 16-foot container holds the contents of a two- to three-bedroom home, or up to 1,200 square feet. Usually, this amounts to three to four rooms. This space is large enough to accommodate all kinds of furniture, appliances, tools, equipment, clothing, decor, and other personal items. A 16-foot moving container is similar to the storage capacity of a 10 x 15 storage unit or a 20-foot moving truck. Imagine the length of a standard parking spot to get a better visual of the size of this container.

As a larger moving container, the 16-foot size is great for nearly any type of larger-scale move, such as moving to a new home or relocating your office. It’s even a wonderful way to store the contents of your home when you begin a home remodel project.
