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 you’re 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

The contents of a studio or room under 500 square feet can usually fit into an 8-foot storage container. This includes furniture and boxes of clothes, trinkets, and personal items. For comparison, it’s similar capacity-wise to a 10-foot moving truck or 5×10 storage locker. It may help to imagine the size of a walk-in closet. This size is often popular with college students and people looking to safely store things while remodeling one room of the house. It can be useful for moving your bedroom contents out of the way and keeping them safe during maintenance and renovations.      

16-foot storage container

A 16-foot storage container can typically hold items from a two- to three-bedroom property. It’s generally good for storing items from an area measuring up to 1,200 square feet. It’s similar to a 20-foot moving truck or a 10×15 storage facility and measures about the same length as an average parking space. This size storage container could benefit those moving to a new home or having an extensive home makeover.

on-site storage

On-site storage means that you keep your portable storage container at your location for as long as you need it. You can access the container 24/7. This could be ideal if you’re upgrading part of your home and wish to temporarily move items out of a room while work is ongoing. It could also be useful for locking up equipment, materials, and home items if you’re building an extension to your property. If you want to free up space and have the container moved to a storage facility partway through your project, no problem.
