How Much Does a Storage Container Rental Cost?

Leasing a storage container is an economical answer to short-term storage needs. Mobile Modular Portable Storage's portable containers ensure your items are safe from weather, wildlife, and theft. With flexible leasing options, you won't be locked into paying more than necessary.

Should I Buy or Lease a Storage Container?

Leasing a storage container from Mobile Modular Portable Storage offers several immediate benefits compared to the significant upfront cost of buying one. Leasing requires a substantially smaller upfront investment and is the most cost-effective option unless you plan to use the container continuously for several years.

Our crews will also handle the delivery and removal of your storage container, a service that may not be offered when purchasing from another company.

Exploring Storage Container Rental Options?

Mobile Modular Portable Storage provides a variety of choices in terms of size and type of storage unit. We offer 8’ x 20’ and 8’ x 40’ storage containers at competitive rates, and our storage containers with on-ground offices in the same dimensions are also available at attractive pricing.

The storage container rental price will also depend on the unit's features.

Available Leasing Options

Mobile Modular Portable Storage works with clients across diverse industries, utilizing our storage containers for various purposes. We offer short- and long-term leasing options, with flexible leases for uncertain timelines and long-term leases extending up to two years and beyond. Plus, with our low-cost damage waiver, you can ensure you are protected from loss and financial exposure if your container is damaged due to natural events such as flooding, fires, and tornadoes, as well as a third-party vehicle collision.
