Posted on October 24, 2016

Mibox® mobile storage

If your small business has big storage needs, a MI-BOX® portable storage container can come in handy.

Extra inventory, unused office furniture, documents and client files, seasonal displays – they all have to go somewhere when not in use, and some small business owners are turning to MI-BOX® mobile storage containers for help. Whether you own a retail store or a restaurant, these convenient containers can offer up extra storage space when you need it the most. We’ve put together a list of just some of the benefits these portable containers conveniently deliver.


1. Time Saving

When you need something you’ve previously stored in a hurry, it can be difficult to find the time to hop in your car and drive across town to your rented storage unit. When you choose to use a MI-BOX® portable storage container instead of a storage rental unit, you can conveniently place it on site where your stored items will always be right at your fingertips. You can also skip the initial time-consuming step of loading up a truck to transport items to the storage unit in the first place.


2. Quick Access

The best thing about mobile containers is they can be delivered within days, sometimes even hours, if you find yourself in a storage-less situation. It only takes a phone call. All you have to do is call your provider and have them deliver it to your location as soon as possible. When you’re finished, just call them back and have them pick it up. It really is that quick and easy.


3. Easy Access

Since portable storage containers are stored directly on the ground, there’s no ramp needed to load and unload heavy items. You can easily use a dolly to load heavy items in and out without making a big effort.  


4. Super Secure

Portable storage containers are constructed using heavy-duty steel. They also come with a heavy-duty lock. These bad boys are as good at keeping stuff in as they are at keeping unwanted people out.


5. Extra Space

Portable storage containers are usually about the size of a standard parking stall. That’s roughly 112 square feet of extra storage space parked right outside your door, and that doesn’t even cover the extra space you can find if you stack your items on top of each other.


6. Completely Dry

Another added benefit of using MI-BOX® portable storage containers is the ability to keep all stored items protected from the elements. They’re completely waterproof. That means you can store dry goods, important documents and files, and electronics without worrying about water or fire damage.
