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. 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 than 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 Armellini Storage 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 Armellini Storage partner in your area about door options and specifications.
