today i got a question from sharon who wants to know what is the maximum weight limit for items in storage units so a lot of us have some heavier items maybe that we would want to store in a storage unit but we need to know if there’s a certain weight limit if they’re allowed for storage if anything might happen to them during storage so this is exactly the kind of of question that works for that. So Sharon, basically, first and foremost, it depends on where you’re storing. Obviously, if you’re going to be storing in a warehouse that has built units as part of a building, it’s not going to have a weight limit, just like the floor of your home will not have a weight limit. Or it will, but it’s too fantastic to even consider. However, if you know that you want to go for portable storage because you’re storing as part of a move or because you want it to just be easier in the loading and unloading process later be more agile then yeah there will be some sort of weight limit to the container thankfully this weight limit is usually very very high and you’re usually not going to get anywhere near it however we are talking about a certain weight limit usually between 3 000 and 4 500 pounds above that limit they’re not going to store the items because it can actually harm the integrity of the container itself so Sharon if you have something particularly heavy to store and you know that you want portable storage for any reason at all it’s not a problem all you need to do is either contact your facility ahead of time or go to their website go look at the containers and it will usually state right on there clear as day what the weight limit is for any.
