Our shipping container depot is located in Westerly, RI and we deliver our rental fleet of containers throughout Rhode Island and to locations in Connecticut & Massachusetts. Refer to the map below to see our rental delivery area.
Our rental units are 20′ long by 8′ wide by 8.5′ high (exterior dimensions). The interior volume is roughly 1,170 cubic feet. They can be rented with or without shelving.
You can rent a storage unit from a minimum of one month to as long as you choose. If you need the container for less than a month, that’s fine, however you are still billed for the minimum rental period of a whole month.
The amount of space is minimal. For a 20-foot unit, you will need approximately 75 feet of straight clearance.
We deliver 20’ containers to your site using a tilt bed truck. The driver will back in the truck, tilt the bed, and drive out from underneath the container.The container will gently slide off the truck, onto the ground. The driver will need to pull straight out from underneath the container. Click here to see a video of how we offload a 20’ container.
The site will have to be fairly level, smooth, and firm. We can deliver on dirt, cement, grass, crushed stone, and asphalt. Keep in mind that a container might sink in a soft surface and our truck could leave tire marks.
We recommend that you or a designated contact person be present the first time we deliver a unit to you. If this is not possible, we can discuss other alternatives.
We strive to deliver your container in the shortest amount of time. We can usually deliver within a week.
Upon delivery, we charge the first month’s rent, delivery, and pickup. Subsequent months are billed. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.
When you are finished with the container and it has been swept out, give us a call. We will pick up the container in a timely manner.
Your final bill will be prorated. For example, if your container is picked up on February 9, you will be charged for February 1- February 9, 9 days.
It is your responsibility to check with your local authorities about the placement of the container.
We do not provide insurance for your goods and liability of stored items rests with the customer.
We do not have the capability to move containers full. Our containers can be used on site, filled, and we will pick them up when it is empty. We do not provide moving services.
We ask that you not store any of the following materials in the container: illegal, toxic, waste, contaminated, controlled, hazardous, restricted, explosive, flammable, chemical, paint, or any inherently dangerous material of any kind.
The containers are a neutral color in order to blend in with the surroundings.
The delivery and pick-up of your storage container rental will require 75 feet of running room where the delivery truck can back in and slide the container into position. Click to watch the video.
