13 Things About Moving Containers You May Not Have KnownPortable storage containers are becoming more and more popular these days as people enjoy the flexibility and convenience they provide. But how much do you really know about them?

Did you know, for example, that you can fit 62 armchairs in one storage container? Or that some containers have a translucent roof that allows light in? Here are 13 little-known facts about moving containers that you might find interesting:

  1. They’re delivered to your location – While a basic benefit of moving containers, people may not know that they can be delivered to the location of your choice, as long as you’re in a company’s designated service area.
  2. You can use them for more than just moving – Whether you’re decluttering or staging your home, moving containers can be extremely useful for a variety of situations other than relocating.
  3. Their smooth interior protects your belongings – Why would a smooth interior matter? Because any part of the interior that isn’t smooth puts your belongings at risk for scratches, dings, dents and other forms of damage.
  4. Some have translucent roofs – Portable storage containers like SAM (Storage & Move) have a translucent roof. Why? Because it allows light in, making it easy to see when inside and loading or unloading your container.
  5. Not all moving containers are created equal – The features you’ll get with a moving container vary by brand. That’s why it’s important to look at a moving container comparison chart before making your decision.
  6. Having them picked up is easy – Once you’re done loading or unloading your moving container, having it picked up is as easy as making a call. The best companies won’t use call centers, either, so you’ll be talking to a live person.
  7. They feature galvanized steel framing – This sturdy material is resistant to rust and is the same material used is modern buildings, so you know it’s strong. SAMs are constructed with galvanized steel and other state-of-the-art materials.
  8. You can fit 62 armchairs in one container – Or 51 rocking chairs. Or 62 small desks. Or 310 ironing boards. Or a combination of other items. Check out the online storage calculator to see how many items will fit in one or more containers.
  9. Your items are potentially protected from fire and theft – If you choose to store your container in SAM’s concrete storage facility, your items will benefit from a fully functioning sprinkler system and 24-hour alarm system.
  10. They have an excellent track record – One look at all the reviews for moving containers and you’ll see why they’re becoming so popular these days. Be sure to read them to learn more about individual experiences.
  11. You don’t have to be there for delivery – To add more convenience, moving containers can be delivered without your presence! Simply call and let the company know where you’d like them.
  12. You can load or unload at your own pace – One of the other main benefits of moving containers is that you can take as much time as you need to unload or load your belongings.
