Not all portable storage containers or portable storage companies are created the same. Whether it is PODS®, 1-800-PACKRAT®, or Door to Door Storage, there are differences and those differences can make or break your storage experience.
Our portable storage containers
In 1996 Door to Door Storage started the portable storage container industry. Ever since the first version of the Door to Door portable storage container, we have invested large amounts of time and resources to continually update our container design. The current version was designed to:
- Lock securely at your location and in our indoor Storage Facilities
- Help prevent condensation, mold and mildew
- When at your home they resist weather with a heavy duty cover
- Allow safe and easy loading and unloading
- Fit perfectly into driveways and parking spaces
- Can be packed tightly to help prevent belongings from shifting when moved
- Accommodate apartment and condo loading areas
Unique – While we invented the storage container system, we certainly have imitators. You might even come across containers made of steel or plastic. We can assure you, if it’s not made of construction grade wood and it doesn’t carry the Door to Door logo, then it won’t come with Door to Door’s experience, dependability and service.
Size – Door to Door portable storage units have exterior dimensions measuring 5 ft wide x 7 ft tall x 8 ft long and typically hold 1 to 1½ rooms worth of furnishings and/or boxes. Since you won’t be rushed to pack you’ll be able to sort and load by room keeping your lawn tools away from your kitchenware and making unloading so much easier.
Construction – Our portable storage units are made of construction grade wood. The floor is just inches off the ground, making it a lot easier to load than a rental truck. Our storage containers are specifically designed to help prevent condensation, mold and mildew, which can occur with plastic or metal storage units. A weather-resistant cover helps protect your belongings from the elements when the container is at your location.
Security – You always hold the key to your container, so you control access to your belongings whether the container is at your place or ours. When it’s here, 24/7 monitoring ensures your container is safe and secure.
Here’s what our customers are saying
“The customer support was fabulous. I was in the midst of a nasty divorce, and the support team put security measures in place to insure that I was the only person with access to the account. In addition to a password, both times I needed to retrieve the pods, the customer service team called me back on my phone to confirm that I had in fact placed the request. Exceptional, above-and-beyond service.”
