Answers to 6 Common Questions About Commercial Storage Containers

Answers to 6 Common Questions About Commercial Storage ContainersWe’d like to think that we stop having so many questions once we’re out of the adolescent stage, but that’s not really true. Life is full of questions, which is why we watch quiz shows on television, participate in trivia board games and are always wondering what happened to the second sock on laundry days.

Commercial storage is one of these topics where people have questions. What do you put underneath storage containers, for example? Can you buy the container? We answer these two questions about commercial storage containers, along with four others.

Question: What Do You Put Underneath Storage Containers?

Answer: Usually made from sturdy materials — SAM (Store & Move) commercial storage containers are framed with galvanized steel, for example — storage containers need no special material or foundation underneath them. They do need ground that is flat, however. Rugged terrain and unlevel concrete are not the best places to put storage containers, as items in them won’t be as secure and are at risk for shifting.

Question: Can You Buy the Storage Container?

Answer: Most storage containers are for rent only, but there are always exceptions. Contact the commercial storage container company for more information on their selling policy.

Question: Are The Containers Climate Controlled?

Answer: It depends on where you’re storing them. If you’re having the storage container delivered to your commercial facility outside, it’s likely not going to be climate controlled. If you choose to store it in a warehouse, on the other hand, it may be climate controlled. SAM ‘s 66,000-square foot warehouse has climate-controlled storage available and is monitored by a 24-hour alarm system and contains sprinklers.

Question: Is There a Minimum Rental Period?

Answer: This also depends on the company that rents the storage container, but SAM (Store & Move) offers storage by month with no minimum.

Question: Do You Rent to Contractors?

Answer: Yes, commercial storage containers can be delivered to job sites as you are completing work. Once you’ve filled it up with materials and tools, just give the company a call and they’ll pick it up and deliver it to your next work location. These containers make moving or storing construction materials and equipment a breeze!
