A mobile storage dealer has a solution for your storage needs. Using a mobile storage dealer to get the container you need to store your goods safely is a great option. There are three things that you need to consider when you are placing your order to ensure you order the right size container.

1. How Much Space Do You Have For the Container?

A mobile storage dealer will deliver the container for your storage needs to any location you request. You will need to have enough room on your property to fit the container. The best way to determine the amount of space you have for the container is to pull out the tape measure.

Measure the area in which you plan to put the container and allow for about four extra feet. The delivery driver will need to maneuver the container into position. If you have questions about the space, call the mobile storage dealer, they can help.

2. What Type of Container Can You Afford?

If you are working on a budget, you want to be sure that you consider the cost of the containers. The larger the container, the more it will cost for the rental. Working with the right mobile storage company will help you to stay within your budget. While storage containers are a great affordable storage option, there will be a price variance from dealer to dealer.

Do comparative shopping to ensure that you get the best value. For example, if you can get a 12-foot storage container at one dealer for the same price as an eight-foot container at another dealer, that would be could be a great value.

3. How Much Storage Space Do You Need?

This last consideration is the most important consideration. How many things are you going to store? You can use this from the American Movers Association as your guidelines:

  • 8-foot container can hold 1-1.5 rooms of goods
  • 12-foot container holds 2-3 rooms of goods
  • A 16-foot container holds 3-4 rooms of goods

The above is not a definitive list of containers. It is the most typical type of storage container.
