What is the difference between a storage trailer and a storage container?
A storage trailer sits on average 52 inches off the ground and can be brought to a loading dock and moved on-site. Ground-level trailer storage is not possible due to their design. A portable storage container is ground level, providing the ability to walk right in. However, the 20-foot or 40-foot containers are limited in ability to be moved, where trailers are much more mobile from dock to dock.
What are the dimensions of your trailers and containers?
Our trailers range from 27’ to 53’. Our most popular container sizes are 20 feet and 40 feet in length. We also have a limited inventory of 10’, 20’ high cube and 45’ high cube containers.
How far will you deliver?
Our average delivery radius is within 150 miles of the Cincinnati area, we can travel further upon request.

Can containers be set on the ground, or do they need airflow below?
A solid base such as concrete or gravel with good drainage is ideal. Our recommendation is to set containers on 4×4’s or 4×6’s, especially if they are set on soft ground/ grass.
Is there any site prep?
We strongly advise selecting a flat and level surface for the placement of your container. In the event that such a surface is not available, we highly recommend taking measures to ensure proper leveling of the container. Should you decide to position or relocate the container in an area such as grass or soft ground, we kindly request that the ground be sufficiently dry. This precautionary measure aims to prevent any potential complications such as our vehicles becoming immobilized, which may result in additional charges.
