The Benefits of Hiring a Shipping Container for Self-Pack Removal

Moving is always a stressful process, and handling the storage and transportation of all of your belongings can be complicated and overwhelming.

Thankfully, with the help of a hired shipping container, you can easily handle the self-pack removal process without breaking your budget or losing your sanity. Read on to learn more about self-pack removal and the benefits of hiring a shipping container to aid in the process.

What is Self-Pack Removal?

Self-pack removal options allow you to safely store your belongings at your own convenience, then move them when and where you like.

How It Works

The self-pack removal process is simple and easy to handle with the help of a hired container. The usual steps are as follows:

Hiring a Storage Container

First, you get to choose the perfect size container for your removal project. With shipping containers, you can easily determine which size will fit your project's needs based on how much you need to store.

A single 20ft storage container has enough space inside to accommodate up to 33.2 cubic meters of items. For reference, this is roughly the same amount of space taken up by the contents of a three-bedroom home.

For larger homes, containers as large as 40ft are available, ensuring all of your belongings can be stored in a single unit.

Delivery to Your Home or Property

Once you've chosen the perfect container for your needs, it's delivered directly to your doorstep. You can then choose the ideal location to situate your hired container on your property.

Entrusting the delivery of your hired container to professionals allows you to fully focus on your removal project.

DIY Storage

Once your chosen container has been delivered and placed on your property, you can begin storing belongings as needed. Making full use of the space is far easier to do without the worry of restrictive service timeframes, traveling long distances to store items or having to empty your home in a short period of time.

You can move items at your own pace and simply lock your hired container when not in use.

Transporting to Your Destination

When the time comes for you to move your belongings, you can rest assured the process can be handled easily.

With all of your items stored safely inside, your container is ready to be moved wherever you need it to go, whether it's across town or in another state altogether.

Emptying and Pickup

When your container arrives at its destination, you can remove your belongings again at your own pace.

The empty storage container is then picked up and returned to the provider, leaving you with a hassle-free move.

Benefits of Shipping Containers for Self-Pack Removal

Hiring a shipping container for self-pack removal is often the most sensible option for a variety of reasons. Below are just a few:


Getting access to enough space to hold an entire house worth of belongings can be costly and inconvenient.

Hiring a shipping container makes it possible to pay for exactly what you need and account for changes in plans without going significantly over budget. Shipping containers come in multiple sizes, and hiring terms are often more flexible than most alternatives.

Whether your needs are short-term or likely to extend to months at a time, you'll find hiring a shipping container to be an effective choice for completing your project.


You may need a lot of time to get all of your items stored away in your chosen container. Instead of dealing with facility closing times and other restrictive access practices offered by alternative storage options, a shipping container delivered to your home gives you 24/7 access to your storage space.

You can work on your removal project at your own convenience, advancing on your goal at a steady pace that you control.


Although hired hands can speed up your removal process, they can also exacerbate costs considerably. Hiring a storage container gives you the freedom to move belongings on your own and avoid additional costs.


Not only are hired shipping containers delivered to you for use, but they can be positioned wherever you need them. This makes it easy for you to set your container up wherever it's easiest to move items to and from it.

As for the container delivery process, you can rest assured that it's being handled by experts with extensive container handling experience. Delivery is relatively quick, and positioning details can be decided ahead of time. Multiple transportation options are also available to further tailor the delivery process to your needs.


Hired shipping containers are incredibly secure, being constructed of solid steel and outfitted with special locking mechanisms specifically for this purpose.

They're also constructed to provide a stable environment for stored items in a wide range of weather conditions. Your belongings will benefit from your hired storage container's built-in ventilation features and staunch protection from the elements.

Hiring a shipping container alleviates the general hassles of handling your own self-pack removal project by eliminating the guesswork and complications involved with security, transportation, and more.
