What Is Mobile Self-Storage?
When you hear about storage, your mind automatically thinks of driving yourself over to a storage facility, opening up a locker and packing it with your things until a later date. But did you know that mobile self-storage is delivered right to your door? If you are not sure what mobile self-storage really is, let us clarify.
Mobile Self-Storage Calgary
Pak-n-Stor provides mobile self-storage throughout Calgary. If you need to store items, we deliver mobile storage pods, called QuikPaks, right to your door. Each one comes in; a standard size - 5′ wide x 8′ long x 7′ tall - but you can fill up as many as you like, depending on the amount of items that you want to store. Each storage pod holds about 1 to 1.5 rooms worth of goods. You can take as long as you need to pack up the pods and once you are done, call us to pick them up. At this stage, our movers come and pick up the QuikPaks to deliver them to our storage facility in Calgary. Once you are ready to have your items back in your home, we will bring the mobile storage pods right back to your door or another location in the city.
Traditional Public Storage
As you probably already know, the way traditional Calgary public storage works is quite different from mobile self-storage. Normally, you would need to rent a truck, drive it to your home and pack it up with the items you want to store. Then, drive to the storage facility and unload the truck and rush to return the truck so you don't have to pay for another day. Depending on the type of facility, you may or may not be able to drive up right to the locker. Here, you will need to unload your items into the locker, where they will wait for you to return at a later date with yet another rental truck.
Advantages of Mobile Storage Pods
It’s pretty clear that mobile storage pods are less of a hassle compared to traditional public storage lockers. Firstly, you won’t have to worry about truck rentals, loading and unloading on the same day, or driving back and forth. Secondly, you can take as much time to pack your mobile storage pods as you need - just call us for a pick-up when you are ready. Thirdly, the items you store will be well protected. Our QuikPaks are designed to be packed tightly, are fully weather resistant and breathable, plus our storage facility has climate control.
Storage Pods Calgary Cost
Not only is mobile self storage in Calgary more convenient, it comes at a great price. Pak-n-Stor is offering 25% off recession pricing for 2 or more containers per month plus delivery. Avoid the costs of truck rentals, insurance and gas. We can bring up to 6 containers to your home at a time, but you only pay for the number of containers you use.
Mobile self storage is an ideal option for storage in Calgary without going through the hassle of renting trucks, driving back and forth, or rushing through the packing process. Pak-n-Stor will bring mobile storage pods right to your door and then pick them up to take them to the storage facility, where they will be safe and sound until you need them again.
