Mobile Storage is a convenient alternative to self storage. The container is delivered to your location eliminating the need to rent a truck. However, living in the city presents some limitations. Doing your research and choosing the right container company can reduce stress and save you money.
One of the biggest concerns city dwellers have is where they can place the container. Go Mini’s of Chicagoland has containers that are roughly the size of a large SUV. This makes placing the container easier when space is an issue. For the delivery of your portable storage container, the truck will need the length of two parking spaces. Once the container is dropped, it can fit in a standard size parking space. The dimensions of the container are 8 feet wide by 16 feet long.
If you need to reserve parking, you can do so through your Alderman’s Office or the City of Chicago. Another alternative is to park two vehicles in adjacent parking spaces holding the space until the container delivery truck arrives. If the length of time the container can remain at your location is also a concern, please consider having GoMini’s of Chicagoland arrange for the labor to load the container therefore pick up. loading and delivery of the container can be done in one day.
Labor to load the container can be provided through the moving companies in our network, McMahon Movers, Glen Ellyn Storage and Adco Van and Storage. Using this method, the container is delivered, loaded and picked up in a matter of hours. In some cases the mobile storage container is loaded while it is still on the truck and the container is never placed on the ground.
