Be sure to ask these questions before renting or buying a storage container.

A storage container is an excellent investment, but before you rent or purchase, it’s essential to do your research to find the best provider. There are a few crucial questions you must ask to ensure that you are working with the best company and are renting or buying the best product! Continue reading for four questions to ask before renting or buying a storage container.

What Sizes/Types Of Containers Do You have?

The size and types of storage container will vary by provider, so you should ask each company what they have available rather than assuming they carry the container you need. At Allied Trailers, we offer versatile, competitively-priced secure storage conex boxes that are available in sizes 20’ and 40’ to fit your storage needs.

How Long Is The Rental Period?

If you are going to be renting your storage container, you should be aware of how long the rental period is ahead of time. Rental periods are different depending on the company you choose, as one may be 28 days, while another is a few months. At Allied Trailers, we offer minimum leases of two to three months with flexible lease terms.

How Long Will It Take To Get My Container?

If you need a storage container quickly, you don’t want to choose a company that will take weeks to deliver. The right provider will get your container to your site as efficiently as possible to ensure you get your job done on time! Allied Trailers offers next-day shipping for our customers.

How Much Will It Cost?

Be wary of companies that don’t provide straightforward quotes, as they may be trying to slip in a few hidden fees. Allied Trailers always provides clear and honest quotes upfront and promises to never hide any fees or unexplained price increases. We believe that our customers should know exactly what they’re paying for, whether they are renting for a short period of time or purchasing a container.
