cend’s portable storage containers

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

If you’re packing up a studio or room under 500 square feet, an 8-foot storage container is all you need. It can easily fit one to two pieces of furniture and several boxed items, making it the ideal choice for college students packing up their dorm for the summer or homeowners launching a one-room renovation project and needing external space to store their belongings. An 8-foot container is comparable to a 5×10 storage unit or 10-foot moving truck. 

16-foot storage container

For an even bigger space, such as a two- to three-bedroom home up to 1,200 square feet, you’ll want to consider a 16-foot storage container. A family or group of roommates hoping to transport their combined belongings in one unit can benefit from this size container. It can typically fit living room furniture, multiple beds and mattresses, dressers, dining room furniture, kitchen appliances, and miscellaneous items. Roughly the length of a standard parking spot, a 16-foot portable container is comparable to a 10×15 storage unit or 20-foot moving truck.

on-site storage

If you’re renovating a room in your home or business, on-site storage can give you a place to stash your items, so your indoor space doesn’t become too chaotic or cluttered. On-site storage is kept in an external location on your own property, providing 24-hour access to your items. This is particularly useful if you accidentally pack something you need, so you don’t have to waste time driving to a storage unit. 

In fact, you don’t have to do any driving at all. CEND will personally deliver portable storage units to your home or business whenever you need them. You also don’t have to worry about meeting a specific timeline. The containers are yours to use as long as you need them.

With CEND’s mobile storage services, you can take your belongings out on the road without having to do the actual transporting. CEND will drop the container off at your home while you’re hard at work packing and preparing your stuff for moving day. Once your items are ready, you can load them into the container on your own time according to your personal organizational needs. CEND will then take the container out of your hands and bring it to a secured storage facility to keep it safe until you’re ready for it. 

If you discover later that you accidentally packed your toothbrush or favorite sweater, simply let CEND know. Although facilities are restricted to employees only, you still have full access to your belongings while they’re there. All you have to do is contact the facility, and an employee will promptly retrieve the needed item for you. And when you’re ready to bring your items home to unpack, CEND will safely transport them to your new location.
