When it comes to moving, decluttering, or renovating, portable storage containers have become a lifesaver. They offer convenience, flexibility, and a cost-effective solution. But with multiple portable storage companies in the market, how do you pick the best one for your needs? In this blog post, we'll guide you through the essential factors to consider when choosing a portable storage company.
1. Container Size and Type:
The first step is determining how much storage space you need. Portable storage containers come in various sizes, so assess your belongings and choose a size that comfortably accommodates them. We offer the the industry standard Large Size, typically for the price of the competition's Small Size.
Consider the type of container too. Some are more suitable for specific purposes, like moving or long-term storage. Our containers are insulated, have swing doors, and are much better suited for they type of weather we face in New Jersey.
2. Security Features:
Security should be a top priority. Look for companies that provide sturdy, weather-resistant containers and secure locking systems.
Inquire about additional security measures like surveillance cameras and site lighting.
3. Location and Delivery Options:
Consider the location of the storage facility. Choose a company with facilities conveniently located near your home or destination. We are strategically located in the heart of Ocean County to provide quick and easy delivery anywhere along the Jersey Shore.
Ask about delivery options, including drop-off and pick-up services. The company should be flexible to accommodate your schedule.
4. Pricing and Contracts:
Compare pricing among different companies, but be cautious of hidden fees. Our low pricing is transparent and can always be found on our Pricing Page, without requiring you to provide your personal information.
Understand the contract terms, including the rental period, payment schedule, and cancellation policies. We are proud to offer month-to-month storage container rentals, and allow you to cancel your initial delivery with a full refund as long as you provide one-week advance notice.
5. Customer Reviews and Reputation:
Research online reviews and testimonials from past customers to gauge the company's reputation for reliability and customer service. We are proud to have earned many 5-Star reviews on our Google Profile.
6. Container Conditions:
Inspect the containers' condition before loading. They should be clean, well-maintained, and free from any signs of damage or pests.
7. Customer Support:
Test the company's customer support by asking questions and gauging their responsiveness. A reliable company should provide clear and prompt communication.
