Shipping containers are the perfect tool for safeguarding large amounts of items while ensuring they are ready to be moved around at any time. With the addition of self-storage spaces, you can now also offload the long-term storage of the shipping container itself once it has been filled, keeping it off of your property and out of your hair until it's needed.
Unlike traditional self-storage facilities, shipping container self-storage leverages your existing container's space to keep your overall costs low and reduce general storage complications to the bare minimum. Read on to learn a bit more about this cost-effective approach to long-term storage:
Self-Storage is Great for DIY Uses
Adopting a self-storage approach for shipping containers makes it easy to keep your belongings safe in a large storage space for an extended period of time.
A shipping container placed on your own property is perfect for personal storage projects and renovations, but once it's full, it still takes up space wherever you have it positioned. This is where self-storage options come into the picture, allowing you to benefit from the convenience of keeping your container close by while you're loading it, and still being able to remove it from your property for extended periods of time without much hassle.
When you choose a self-storage solution such as what we at CBOX offer in Kurnell, Sydney, you can count on being able to easily drop off or pick up your storage container at times that work best for you.
Affordable Costs to Store Your Items
For those who already own their own storage container, going the self-storage route simply makes more sense. You can concentrate on storing your items in your container while it's on your property and not have to worry about paying any extra to hire moving crews or call in moving vans when you're ready to move everything.
Pricing for moving services can quickly put your project's budget into the red zone, forcing you to commit to manual labor fees for work you could have done on your own and at your own pace. Self-storage allows you to take your time with the container loading process and hire a suitable container transportation service when your container is full.
Our self-storage location provides you with a secure space to deliver your filled container to. Once your container arrives, it's set in place for you to pick it up when you want it back. Your items are safe inside your own secure container and kept out of your way for a much more affordable fee than long-term storage facilities tend to charge.
The low pricing helps ensure that you can keep your container stored away over the long-term without incurring unexpected costs or suddenly going over budget. Businesses with surplus stock can benefit from our offer as can those moving overseas for an extended period of time.
Self-Storage Makes Flexible Sizing Possible
If you have your own storage container that you wish to store at a self-storage location, but you could use additional space, we offer container rentals for just a little more than the base space rental fee.
Owing to our wide stock of shipping container models, we are well-equipped to provide you with just the right sized rental container to suit your needs. Shipping containers are designed to be spacious, allowing you to safely store far more items in them than alternative storage services would be able to accommodate for similar prices.
Portability is Not a Problem
When you use a self-storage facility to safely store your shipping container, you benefit from all of the same portability perks shipping containers are designed to offer. Your container can be picked up from our facility whenever you need it and moved wherever you want it to go.
Storing containers this way helps you to avoid bottlenecks in your moving process by eliminating the need for loading and unloading of the items placed inside each unit as would be the case with traditional storage facilities.
Container Self-Storage Drawbacks
Although using a self-storage service for shipping containers makes sense for a wide variety of use cases, there are some things this approach may not be ideal for.
The most notable drawback of shipping container self-storage is that simple shipping containers cannot safely be used to store extremely delicate items for extended periods of time. Precious belongings and goods such as fine paintings, antiques, etc. cannot be kept in spaces with unregulated temperatures and humidity controls.
Similarly, perishables cannot be stored for long periods of time in shipping containers without refrigeration units and appropriate interior item housings. If you have items to store that are particularly sensitive to environmental changes or temperature fluctuations, then this form of container storage will not work for you.
If you need space to store your own full container or would like to try renting a container with a dedicated space where it can be stored, then our self-storage solution could be perfect for your plans.
