Who Is Renting Shipping Containers?
Many construction sites have equipment and tools that need to be stored safely and securely. Although temporary, a container rental is the solution for a short-term project. It wouldn’t be feasible for workers to haul equipment to and from the same site when they can have all their stuff stored in one spot. ATR shipping containers have locks on our units for that additional security. For private individuals, home renovations can be overwhelming. You need to determine where to put your personal items, such as furniture. A shipping container is both an efficient and secure place for temporary storage. This saves you the hassle of having to move things from room to room, which can be time-consuming. Not to mention that renting a container is less expensive than hiring local movers. Retailers will often rent shipping containers during their holiday season for overstock and inventory. This reduces the need for space inside the store and less clutter.
Renting vs Buying
One of the key factors in determining whether to rent or buy is to consider how long you will need the container. Next would be the financial aspects. Over time you could potentially end up paying more in rental fees than you would if you had purchased the unit.
