Space is at a premium in life. Our homes, workplaces, and storage sites are seemly always maxed out. Of course, it is a sign that we’ve done well in allocating our space; it would be bad to invest money in a cavernous, unused space for storage or living.
The biggest inconvenience comes when that neatly budgeted area suddenly becomes entirely too small. You’ve decided to refinish your wood floors, or maybe do a major redecorating project that includes refinished ceilings, new paint, fresh trim, and the whole thing. Where on earth will you empty that room to without rendering your home utterly nonfunctional? This is just one of many different situations where on-site storage can be helpful. Traditional storage companies like Eagle Trailer Leasing have morphed from a source for portable offices and the like into a provider of temporary storage that can be used right there at your home.

So instead of borrowing everyone’s vehicles and muscles to lug your stuff from home to a rental unit across town–and then imposing on them to do likewise when your project is done–you can have the company bring you a container of a suitable size, set it off right on your property, and retrieve when you’re good and ready. The units are weather-tight and secured with locks, and there isn’t so much as a porthole to tip thieves to its contents.
It’s an unbeatable system. When the renovation materials and contractors arrive, you put in a brief period of work to get the relevant area emptied out. Your contractors, or you as the free-of-charge contractor, are able to work in a wide open space without damaging any of the contents with paint, varnish, or tools. And the rest of your house remains exactly as it was. No couches in the bedroom, no desks on the front porch. Better still, anything you may need from the affected room is just steps away, so if you packed something you didn’t mean to, you aren’t making a late-night trip to fetch it.
Renovation isn’t the only time this is handy, of course. A home-based business often sees surges in inventory or supplies. What better place to keep them than in something that you can quickly send back when it’s no longer needed? All your inputs and outputs will be close at hand, and your home will remain livable.
If you’re making a move to a new home, don’t wend your way through an obstacle course of cardboard boxes, piled waist-high in every room. Get a storage container and pack efficiently. It’s locked, it’s close by, and it is super fast to load from once you arrive with a rental truck for transporting to the new place. And don’t forget you’d have the option of a storage container at the new place if you’re not ready to move in at the time when you have to move out.
Temporary on-site storage is a moneysaving way to generate space that’s quickly available when you need it–and in somebody else’s way when you don’t save.
