What are storage containers?

Storage containers, also known as shipping containers or ISO containers, are large rectangular boxes made of industrial-grade steel. Originally designed for use in international cargo shipping, these containers are airtight, portable, and extremely durable.

Why would I want a storage container?

Storage containers have long been used by construction, education, retail, and other industries, and are becoming increasingly popular in the United States due to their wide versatility. These containers are great options for safe and secure personal or commercial storage. They can also be modified to fit office, workshop, residential, or other space needs.

How long do shipping containers last?

If a storage container is bought new, used for storage, and adequately maintained, it can be expected to last for up to 50 years. Used containers will vary in lifespan, as they have already suffered some wear and tear as a result of having aged or being used for international cargo shipping.

Can you help me modify my storage container to suit my specific needs?

Yes! Here at AAA Mobile Storage, our staff is experienced in all kinds of container modifications and can help you with your specific design needs. We can handle doors, windows, dividers, lighting, heating and cooling systems, insulation and ventilation, lockboxes, and more.

Can I rent a shipping container for a short period?

Absolutely. Here at AAA Mobile Storage, we understand that the reasons our customers have for wanting a storage container vary widely. To fit that variety of needs, we offer options to both buy and rent shipping containers. Our inventory of rental containers includes 10, 20, and 40-foot options, both as-is and modified to serve as office space.

How can I use a shipping container to store my belongings while moving?

Storage containers are a great alternative to traditional moving trucks for individuals and families who need to move their belongings to a new home or apartment, whether that’s across the city, state, or country. We’ll deliver a container to your home, where you can load it with all your possessions.
