Benefits of Renting Storage & Shipping Containers

If you’ve found yourself in need of a safe and secure way to store or transport goods, consider the benefits of leasing a shipping container. Shipping container rentals are a cost-effective way to address temporary needs for mobile storage or shipping. The low monthly cost, zero liability, and reduced taxes are among the many reasons our customers opt for rentals. Depending on your industry, choosing a container rental may be beneficial for a variety of reasons, including:

1. One-time use or seasonal events

For temporary use, recurring seasonal events, or one-time use, mobile storage units for rent are a more reasonable financial and logistical option. Even if you need the container for an extended period of time, a rental may still be the best option.

2. Lower maintenance

When you purchase a shipping container, you’re in it for the long haul. You’ll have to store it, maintain it, and eventually dispose of it when you no longer need it. With a rental, managing your container is low maintenance.

3. Convenience

Finding a storage container for rent is much easier than buying one. You can trade out your container for different sizes and uses, depending on what you need. In fact, many storage container rentals can be upgraded to a newer model once they’ve become outdated. 

The renting process is faster too and set up is simple. For starters, you won’t need to build a solid foundation right away unless you’re planning for a long-term rental. Also, you won’t be inconvenienced by finding a place to store the container during off-seasons.

4. Cost-savings

If your business needs a budget-friendly storage solution, renting may be the best option. Instead of making a substantial initial investment, rental units allow you to only pay for as you need them. Many customers opt for a lease to take advantage of their pricing flexibility. Additionally, many business owners and corporations will qualify for a number of tax benefits. Instead of paying taxes on a purchased asset, your rental may be categorized as a deductible expense.
