FAQs

What size are your portable storage units?

We have two different sizes:
16′ long by 8′ wide by 8′ high
7 1/2′ long by 5′ wide by 7 1/2′ high

How much weight can a Drop-A-Box® storage container hold?

Our large containers can hold up to 4,000 lbs. Our small containers hold up to 1,200 lbs. Typical household items usually don’t surpass the weight limits. However, items such as full tool chests, lots of books, or filing cabinets can add up quickly. It’s also important to try to distribute the weight evenly throughout the container. Please call us at (877) 856-2348 for further guidance if you know you will be loading or storing heavy items.

What are your Drop-A-Box® containers made of?

Our large containers consist of fiber-glass walls and galvanized steel corners. Our small containers are made of wood with a special Drop-A-Box® cover. Our containers also have an advantage over other mobile self-storage units thanks to smooth interior walls with flush-mounted tie-down rings. They are constructed with waterproof materials and our large containers have a translucent roof, allowing sunlight through to make loading easier.

Can I move my storage container after delivery?

No. Following drop off, you won’t be able to move your container. If you are able to be home when we drop off your container, you’ll be able to direct the driver exactly where you want it. If not, our representatives will obtain specific instructions on where you’d like to have it placed. There is an additional charge to have the container repositioned.

Where can I store my Drop-A-Box® container?

You may keep your container either at the drop off location or at one of our storage facilities. Large containers will be kept outdoors while small containers will be kept inside. Once you’re ready to have your container returned, just give us a call and well drop it off when and where you need it.
