How to track a storage container. Now this is very relevant for a lot of us. Maybe you’re moving with a portable storage company, you get a big container, you put all your stuff inside and you send it off, but how do you know where it is, where it’s going to end up? You want to make sure that it’s not getting lost or that anything is stopping it on the way. You want to be informed. I get it, I’m just the same. So here’s how you do it. The first option is to talk to a portable storage company that actually offers live tracking. Some portable storage companies will have this feature and they will send updates to your phone or some kind of alert and let you know where the container is at any given moment. For instance, when it comes to flex storage, every single unit has a GPS installed inside that’s solar powered and so this tracks the container at any given time. It doesn’t matter if it’s in transit or just standing in your yard, it will let you know all the time where it is so you don’t need to worry about it. The other option if you’re using a company that doesn’t have this GPS tracking service, is to do it on your own. You can get your own device like AirTags and they have an installed GPS inside. Pair it with your phone and it will tell you where the moving container is at any given moment. All you need to do is after you load your stuff in, put the little device inside, pair it with your phone and then you can have live tracking all the time in transit so you feel like you have full control and there’s not a problem of it being lost or anything like that. These usually go for around a hundred bucks for four units so they’re easy to get, they’re not very expensive and then you can put it on your own and have your peace of mind. So in conclusion Angelina, there are two ways to track your portable storage unit or moving container. Number one is to get a company that actually does this for you and lets you know what’s going on during transit and number two, get your own device, install it inside and then you will have your peace of mind the whole way there.
