What are your storage containers made of?

Our containers are constructed with state-of-the-art materials like fiberglass-reinforced walls (which make them smooth) and feature galvanized steel framing for strength.

How much does each storage container hold?

One container can fit the contents of a typical 1,500-square-foot home. To get a better idea of what each container holds, use our storage calculator.
