The Different Types of On Site Storage Containers and Their Benefits

Small and large objects in your home, office or industry may accumulate and tend to get in the way. They create clutter and obstruct easy access to the more frequently required things that you may need. You cannot throw these things away. What you need in such case is safe, secure, on-site storage containers. With just one stroke you resolve your problem of creating space and storage of valuables.

On site storage containers

On site storage containers differ from normal storage like cupboards and drawers. This type of container is usually kept in the open. Depending on end user requirement the storage container type may vary in the use of material, size, construction and features. You can buy or rent storage containers that offer a host of features and facilities such as:
  • Extra thick gauge steel containers with high security locking system
  • Totally weather-proof with wind and water-tight construction for outdoor storage or for shipping purposes
  • Choice of hard wood or steel floors
  • Containers with single door, double doors or doors at both ends
  • Containers with internal partitions and racks
  • Corrosion and chemical resistant coatings on the inside for storage of food and chemicals
  • Facility at the bottom to allow use of fork lift for easy lifting, shifting and moving when required.
  • Refrigerated containers for perishables with remote monitoring and control facility.
  • Secure storage container with multiple locks and security features, extra thick doors and anti-jemmy bolts.
  • Anti-vandal storage
  • Tool vaults

Common sizes of storage containers you can buy or hire are:

  • 4 ft x 3.3 ft x 6.5 ft height, 10 x 8 x 6.5 ft height, 6.3 x 3.3 x 6.5 ft height
  • 10, 20, 21, 26 and 40 ft storage containers for onsite storage with secure locking
  • 8 ft x 5 ft x 7 ft height
Considerations

Consider whether you need storage container for short term or long term on-site storage and then decide whether you should buy or rent.

  • Rentals are best for short term on-site storage. However, in either case when your containers are going to be stored in the open you would need to be sure that they are vandal proof and cannot be broken open with ease. Also, since they will be exposed to the elements, you need containers that are weather-proof and corrosion resistant as well. Containers with internal lining of hardwood or plastics are ideal in some cases.
  • If you have a lot of knick-knacks or smaller items then you will find containers with internal racks and partitions the most suitable for your use.
  • If you are renovating your home or wish to use the container as a temporary space during exhibitions or events then a large unit with doors at both ends may be better suited for your purpose.
Benefits

If you have many items to store you may think of renting space in a warehouse. However, this has its disadvantages in that you have to visit that place should you need to retrieve or store anything. Renting storage containers or buying containers and installing them on-site have decided advantages:
  • Totally secure storage
  • Easy access at any time
  • Low cost of rentals
  • You create additional space within your premises by moving not required items to the on-site storage.
Storage containers are not only for industrial and commercial purposes; they are equally well suited for homes. If you have stuff lying about in the attic or basement, transferring them to an on-site medium sized storage container lets you use all that valuable space inside… so give it a thought!
