Why are Portable Storage Containers Growing in Popularity?Portable storage containers have been growing in popularity for many years since PODS® first took the concept to the residential market. Today there are container delivery systems with capabilities far beyond the initial systems and new containers with many enhancements to durability, appearance, weather-tightness, and utility. The MI-BOX portable storage containers and the MI-BOX Level Lift system are the most advanced in the industry and bring the utility of portable storage containers to new places and customers.
Advanced New Delivery Systems Drive Up Use of Portable Storage ContainersHistorically, with some delivery systems, it has been difficult to deliver portable storage containers to locations without a lot of room beside the container.
Moving into or out of an apartment is one area where MI-BOX portable storage containers excel. With the MI-BOX Level Lift system, it is easy to place MI-BOX portable storage containers in a single car parking space as you can see in the picture below. In fact, MI-BOX portable storage containers need only sixteen inches of space on either side to safely lift and lower the containers, meaning that you can place our sixteen foot long containers side-by-side in each parking space in a standard parking lot. Also, you can place a container on one side of a two-car driveway and still have plenty of room for another full size car or truck on the other side of the drive.
Many delivery systems need several feet on each side of the container, meaning that you cannot put one on the edge of a driveway without driving an awkward lift system over the adjacent yard. The MI-BOX Level Lift system delivers portable storage containers without the lift system ever touching the yard or driveway. You just cannot achieve that with a tilt-bed delivery system or even with the system used by the largest company in the portable storage market.
