Where are portable storage units kept?

Curious about where your belongings are kept when using a portable storage unit? This episode takes you behind the scenes to reveal the various locations where portable storage units can be stationed. From your own driveway to secure storage facilities, we examine the options available for both short-term and long-term storage needs.

Where are portable storage units kept? Now if you figured out that getting a portable storage is the best option for you, maybe as part of a move, maybe for temporary storage while renovating, or any other option, you want to know obviously where your stuff is going to be physically kept throughout the duration of storage. So for those of you who don’t know when you book a portable storage unit, what they do is book a delivery time and they have it delivered to your house. There it is kept for the duration of loading the container. Either you can load it yourself or you can do it with movers or your friends, whatever you like. And then you have two options. Either you keep the portable storage unit on your property, meaning in your yard or in your driveway, or you can choose to have the company pick up the storage unit and send it back to a secure facility where it is kept. Now at a secure facility usually you will have 24-7 surveillance and much better security than you mostly would find probably in your yard. There will also usually be an option of climate control which is where they take the container your stuff is stored in and they put it in an air-conditioned hanger or large unit and that way the climate control is kept in a way that you can’t do it at home. So these are basically the two options that you have with portable storage. You should know that if you do choose to store at a facility and not in your home, you will usually be charged a little bit of an extra fee each month for the storage for the space that you’re taking up in the facility. Usually we’re talking about anywhere between 30 and 60 extra dollars a month for facility storage as opposed to storing at your home. So in conclusion, you can choose to either store it at your place or have it stored at a secure facility, take into consideration that it will cost you a little bit extra each month for this secure storage option. And of course, if you are storing at the facility, you can ask your rep where the facility is, do you have access to it, and how you access it if you do have that option.
