Container Renters Guide
Mobile Storage containers have become a very popular means of storing your contents. Containers are now available in all major metropolitan areas throughout the nation. Shipping containers as storage units have changed the storage industry, most people prefer the convenience of mobile storage vs standard mini storage. Container Alliance has formed a network of small businesses that are familiar with your needs. This guide is designed to help you become informed about container uses, common questions, and problems.
This rental guide serves to help you get informed about renting or leasing mobile shipping and storage containers, the factors of storage rental prices, and more. Renting or leasing is a great cost effective way of gaining access to a portable storage container without spending thousands of dollars up front. If you are not sure how your neighbors or municipalities are going to react to your storage container, we would strongly recommend considering storage containers for rent, rather then purchasing a container. The cost of renting a container to be used for a short period of time is much more economical than purchasing your storage or shipping container. The Container Alliance partner will also take care of delivering and picking up your unit so you do not need to worry about finding a new home for your container if it turns out that it cannot stay.
Why choose a shipping container as a storage container?
ISO (International Standards Organization) shipping containers are designed for ocean freight shipping. Ocean freight containers are engineered to withstand heavy loads and vigorous marine environment. Shipping containers are excellent for storage purpose because they are over engineered for ocean freight shipping. Storage / shipping containers are also available with a plentiful supply at a fraction of the price that is typically associated with engineering and building something as strong and dependable as a typical ISO shipping / storage container.
Storage containers are constructed with 12- or 14-gauge corrugated steel sides. Container frames are made of minimal 6-8-gauge steel. Containers have approximately 1″ hard wood floors that are treated. Standard containers come equipped with a cargo door. Cargo doors are excellent because they seal tight from rodents and the elements. They also give you the ability to open the entire end of the container and load very large items. Roll up doors are convenient because they are light weight and easy to open. This confidence comes with obvious downsides. Roll up doors are not as secure and are not 100% water tight. As a typical garage door water tends to seap below the door. They are typically also not rodent proof. Ask the Container Alliance partner in your area about door options and specifications.
How Much Do Storage Containers for Rent Cost?
Dry storage rental prices, as aspposed to Refrigerated or Insulated containers, typically range in “rental costs” from around $75 per month to $295 per month. Dry containers are by far the most popular and abundant and therefore the cheapest.
Modified Dry or Insulated containers to be used as modular offices are also very popular and range in storage rental prices from $125-$500 per month depending on the size and options selected.
You can also expect to pay delivery / pickup charges. It is very common that the Container Alliance member you find in your area will charge much less for delivery on a rental container as they would if you were purchasing the container and having it delivered to the same location.
Insurance or damage waiver fees may often apply to your monthly bill as an additon to your monthly rental amount. These fees are a great way to extend the partner’s insurance benefits to the customer. These insurance fees are designed such that you do not have to worry about typically nonsingular damage to your container rental while you have it, graffiti etc. If you see or hear your alliance partner mention insurance fees do not be alarmed or discouraged, these fees save you the hassle of making sure your home or business owners insurance is covering the container you are planing to rent.
Rental Period: When renting portable storage containers, you need to take into consideration the rental period you will be billed for. The standard in equipment leasing is the typical 28 day term but there are many variations. Companies offer daily rates, weekly rates and monthly rates. Please ask your Alliance partner or competitor what the rental period means to you.
