Can I Buy Storage Units?

We’re all familiar with storage unit rentals, but can we purchase and keep a storage unit of our own? How? And is it worth it? Hope answers your questions simply in this short video.

Hi there, welcome to Flex TV. My name is Hope, and I will be answering all of your storage-related questions. Today we have a question coming to us from Katie, and Katie wants to know, can I buy storage units? Now, why would someone want to buy storage units? If you know that you’re going to need storage for an extended period of time, and you don’t have the possibility to build a shed or an additional room, if you want to make changes to your storage container, Of course, you can’t make changes to a container that you’ve rented like adding shelving or adding lighting So basically the answer is yes You can most of the time it won’t be from the normal storage providers that you are familiar with They rent out their containers and they don’t sell them normally However, it is quite easy to find shipping containers for sale. You can just look it up There are many manufacturers that will sell it to you. What you have to take into account is that it’s going to cost you a pretty buck. It’s much more expensive. We’re talking about thousands of dollars. You can buy used, but then there’s other stuff to worry about, like whether it’s really insulated, whether it’s really clean. And of course you need a lot of space because where are you going to put that container if you don’t have it? So yeah, Katie, in short, the answer is yes, you can buy a storage container. However, keep in mind that you’re going to have to pay quite a lot for this container, so make sure it’s worth it and that you’re going to need a lot of space to keep it. Also, don’t forget to speak to your HOA. Some of them won’t allow you to have a container in your yard for long periods of time. I hope I answered your question, Katie. Thank you very much.
