The most in demand box that we rent out is the 40 foot Portable Storage Container.  The portable storage container has many different uses a few being:  a staging area, Inventory management, supply chain management, jobsite storage, and onsite storage.  One of our customers, an electrical contractor uses it as a secure place to store fittings, fixtures, and tools that will be needed to complete the job.  Another one of our customers, a General contractor uses the portable storage container as a workshop that they open the doors to each day and all of their tools and supplies are dry and ready to go.

The 40’ Portable Storage Container is a standard ISO shipping container that is secure, wind and water tight, and rodent proof.  The portable storage containers are ground level which provides an easy entry, especially when loading heavy equipment.   The portable storage containers are quick and easy because they require no foundations or assembly.
