4 Things to Keep in Mind When Renting a Storage Container, High Point, North Carolina

No matter if your project is commercial, residential, or industrial, a trustworthy storage container can greatly enhance the cleanliness and efficiency of the situation. As a go-to source for storage unit rental in Virginia and the Carolinas since 1980, A&M Crane and Rigging has the experience necessary to provide excellent service from delivery to pick-up.

If you’re new to storage container rental, however, you may not know exactly what to look for or ask when searching for the perfect unit. Here are some tips to keep in mind:

  • storage containerInvestigate Multiple Options: It’s best to check in with several different options to find the one that’s best for your situation. There may be differences in the size of available containers, price, damage waivers, and other elements that end up being better suited for you.
  • Examine a Storage Container Before Signing Anything: Wear and tear on a storage container can lead to your possessions being damaged, so a full examination is crucial. Checking for dents, holes, bad cases of rust, and knowing the grade of the container (its condition, miles traveled, and age) will all help you get the best product.
  • Check on the Need For a License: Being proactive about the need for a storage container license will help avoid any unnecessary issues with your city during the rental period. Your chosen storage container company is most likely familiar with the city requirements, but you can always contact the local government to ensure you’re up to speed.
  • Site Prep Considerations: If the location of your storage container is fairly flat, there’s usually very little prep to be done. If the spot is uneven or rocky, however, you may need some additional construction work to accommodate the unit.

Checking these points off your list while storage container hunting will help ensure you get the unit that’s right for your project. Of course, the experienced staff at A&M Crane and Rigging will be able to assist you through every step of the process as well.
