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 need to pack up, store, or ship out a studio apartment or living area of roughly 500 square feet in total, an 8-foot storage container works well. This minimal yet surprisingly roomy option is convenient for staying versatile while relocating, staging a move for college students, or keeping belongings safely stored during a remodel. With space comparable to renting a 10-foot moving truck or 5×10 storage units in Washington DC, a storage container offers more flexibility with an affordable cost. 

16-foot storage container

The largest of the three standard options in portable storage units for rent, a 16-foot storage container is roughly the length and width of a standard parking space in a parking lot. Comparable to a 20-foot moving truck or a 10×15 storage unit in terms of capacity, it can fit the typical contents of a two- or three-bedroom home or furniture and belongings from up to 1,200 square feet of living space. This option is best for individuals who are downsizing during a move, relocating their family, or preparing a home for sale.

on-site storage

CEND storage facilities give you the flexibility of securely storing your container without needing to place it on a curb or driveway. This option is an excellent fit for users who want to pack and store their container for a specific period of time, such as during a home renovation, as opposed to day-to-day access. Our on-site storage keeps your packed container safe and secure until you’re ready for us to deliver it to your location. 

Because only CEND employees are allowed on-site, you’ll enjoy complete security and peace of mind. And if you forget something in the container, or pack something you didn’t mean to, there’s no need to worry: We’ll retrieve your item for you and arrange to have it delivered.

When you use mobile storage, an empty storage container is delivered directly to your property for you to pack as you like at the pace that works for you. Once it’s been filled, simply give CEND a call and we’ll pick it up and store it on-site at one of our secure facilities.
