How to get a storage container delivered. So if you’re renting a portable storage unit at a facility but you don’t want to drive back and forth to the facility or maybe you’re not even allowed to visit the facility because that’s the case in some places and you want to have it delivered to your home, great that’s part the service, it’s not really an issue. So how do you do it? The first thing you want to do is contact your provider. You can do this over the phone, or over email, or through a contact form on the website. The important thing is you want to contact as far in advance as you can. Most portable storage companies will request that you ask them to deliver your container at least three days in advance. Some require even more. Some will offer a faster service, and sometimes they can be flexible but you wouldn’t want to count on it so make sure you know ahead of time and you schedule it way in advance so you’re not pressed for time. Once you schedule the delivery time to your home or any other location you will get confirmation in the form of a phone call, a text message, or an email saying that you’ve scheduled and it’s on its way blah blah blah. Now you need to consider that even though this is a service that your portable storage provider does offer, it does cost extra money. Meaning every single delivery, redelivery, any movement basically of your storage unit will cost you a certain amount of money. Now this changes from place to place, from season to season, etc. But we are talking about anywhere between around $80 to around $150 every time you want to have your unit delivered somewhere for you. So that said, if you know that you’re the kind of store that does need access all the time whatever they have stored and you want to have your stuff nearby in a convenient way know that there are also some storage providers that will allow for on-site storage. This means that you get your container you fill it up and you keep it with you on your property or in your driveway for as long as you want basically storing your own stuff but outside of your home so then it’s very accessible anytime you want it you can add something you can take something out and it’s no trouble, you don’t have to pay a fee, and you don’t have to call anyone to do it. So keep that in consideration. It might be more worth your while if you’re the kind of person that’s always wanting access to their stuff. In conclusion, ordering a delivery of your portable storage unit is super super simple. You just contact the facility, you schedule a delivery, you pay a small fee, and of course you want to make sure you do this a few days in advance at least so that you’re not stuck at the last moment with no delivery.
