Benefits of Renting a Storage Container
for On-Site Use

Most people who Google “storage containers for rent near me” know they need temporary storage, but they might not be fully aware of the advantages a storage container rental provides over traditional storage units. We have outlined a few key benefits below.

Convenient Accessibility

When it comes to accessibility, on-site storage is hard to beat. With portable storage rental, you only have to walk a few feet from the jobsite or your office to gain access to your stored items.

Secure and Weather Proof

Shipping containers are resistant to wind and water. And they come with heavy-duty steel doors that you can secure with your own lock and key. That means you can store whatever you want without fear of loss or damage to your items.

Portable from Site to Site

Temporary storage containers are designed to be portable. They can travel across the country or world on ships and trucks to virtually any destination. And then they can move again when you’re ready. Your shipping container rental agreement will lay out when and how you can move your container rental.

Temporary Solutions

Many traditional storage options try to lock you into long-term contracts, but ModuGo prioritizes flexibility and convenience. That’s why our storage container rental contracts are month to month (after a three-month minimum). After the first three months, you keep the container as long as you want, and we’ll bill you monthly until you tell us to come get it.
