What are the dimensions of the storage containers?

All of our containers are 8ft wide and 8.5ft tall the only thing that changes is the length; which can be 10ft, 20ft, or 40ft.

Are your containers insulated?

No, insulating a storage container has more negative effects than positive. It is a common misconception that adding insulation to a storage container helps regulate the interior temperature while the outside temperature fluctuates. However, insulation only works if there is a source producing heat or cold inside the container. Therefore, the insulation can keep this energy from escaping through the walls of a structure. In the case of storage containers, this is almost never the case. Instead, the insulation only provides a nesting area for insects, rodents and other pests and for that reason, we never include any insulation on the interior of the containers.

Should I be concerned about condensation forming inside my container?

No, we use a state-of-the-art ventilation system on all our rental containers. Each container has 4 specially designed vents on each side which allow air to go in and out of the container while keeping water, dirt, insects, etc. out. Therefore, as the temperature rises and drops outside, the air is free to flow through the container rather than condensing and creating moisture within the container.
