10 Surprising Uses for Your Portable Storage Container


When you think about a portable storage container, you probably think about moving. And while mobile storage units are a cost-effective solution for homeowners looking for a convenient, safe, and efficient way to move their belongings from one home to another, portable storage containers from TargetBox can be used for so much more.

Here are ten other ways a mobile moving container can make your life easier:

1. Portable Office Space

If you’re in charge of a construction site, field project, or just need some extra office space, a customized storage unit can provide just the right fit.

Our metal sea containers offer plenty of space for a desk and other office equipment and can be modified with windows, roll-up doors, and electrical units. They’re wind, water, and rodent-proof, and can be locked so your office equipment, documents, and other supplies remain safe.

We’ll deliver your mobile office to your job site so you can get right to work.  And when the project’s done your portable office can be transported to the next job site or kept at our secured storage yard until it’s needed again.

2. Seasonal Storage

If you’re in retail, you know that the holidays mean crowded stock rooms as you struggle to accommodate extra inventory and seasonal décor and fixtures. Then, when it’s over you have to figure out where to put it all until next year.

Portable storage containers make it easy to securely store and access seasonal inventory and festive décor without taking up valuable space in your stock room.

Your mobile storage unit can be delivered behind your property so you can quickly decorate and restock during the busiest time of year. When the holidays are over, we’ll pick up your unit and keep everything safe and dry at our secured storage yard until it’s holiday time again.

If your home is for sale, you’ve probably been told to declutter, empty your closets, and remove extra furniture so your house can be staged to impress prospective buyers. A temporary storage container takes the stress out of home staging by providing a safe, cost-effective, and convenient place for you to keep your cherished possessions while your home is on the market.
