Storage problems are not unique anymore to offices and businesses. Even households have the perennial problem of finding storage for just about anything – furniture, appliances, clothes, and even gardening equipment. In our haste to try to finish several things all at the same time, we unconsciously de-prioritize doing one thing over another, resulting to a lot of unfinished projects and items strewn here and there. Before you know it, your house is in a total disarray.
Even just a few years back, the solution to over storing goods is by holding a garage sale or with a heavy heart, deciding to give your “prized possessions” to your near and dear relatives and friends. The problem nowadays is that there are really times when we need storage: and fast. Previously, it was warehousing that was resorted to if the volume of items for storage really cannot be managed already.
What should you do if the items you will be storing will be needed from time to time?
Remember those steel boxes that you sometimes see on the roads being hauled by trucks? Well, these same steel boxes have now been a big help to companies, businesses and even households as they are now being used as portable storage containers. With these boxes, storage problems can be resolved. You will have the option to either rent or purchase these steel boxes, depending on how long you will need them.
Of course, if the need is temporary, renting is the best option. However, since you do not own the box, there are certain limitations on its use, the primary one being that you cannot alter or customize it to meet your needs. Thus, its use will just really be storage, and nothing else.
Entities or companies who foresee a more or less permanent use for the box may decide to purchase the portable storage containers outright. The purchase will give them more flexibility because aside from using these as storage equipment, they can also customize the box according to their specific need. They can use this as a housing for their generators, a display window (or a store) for manufactured products, or a temporary storage for their inventory. Some companies have also used these storage containers as temporary offices for their construction sites.
Enterprising households have transformed some of these boxes into small snack stores, serving food on the go. Even more surprisingly, a number of these boxes have turned out into beautiful quaint homes.
So How Do the Boxes Look Like?
The steel boxes come in 20, 40 or 45 ft. Height of the box is such that you can actually walk inside comfortably through the 2 sliding doors at the back. The boxes have air vents so if you are deciding to transform this into something livable, then you need just a few adjustments so you can have additional windows. They are delivered on tilt back trucks and are usually mounted on a six- inch lips so that heavy equipment can be driven right into it. Unless your specific county requires a permit for you to have one sitting in your yard, getting these boxes are actually hassle free.
