Georgia Storage Containers is proud to announce that we have expanded our rental fleet to include “easy-access modular containers”. These new modular containers can be compared to PODS® storage containers.

Our “easy access” mo16ft-easy-access-modular-containerdular containers are available in two sizes, 16ft and 20ft.These modular containers are constructed from a durable steel and aluminum blend.

Unlike our shipping container rentals, our “easy access” modular containers feature a lockable roll-up door and smooth paneled white sides. Our “easy access” modular containers will easily fit into a standard parking space and can be maneuvered into tighter spaces.

Like PODS® storage containers, our “easy access” modular containers are ideal for residential customers, as well as retail and small businesses. Our “easy access” modular containers are the perfect option for those customers who are in need of on-site storage space but have limited space and are concerned about the aesthetics of placing a container next to their residence or business.

Our “easy access” Modular Containers Feature:

  • Ground Level Access
  • Secure Storage
  • Lockable Roll Up Door
  • Smooth-Sided White Exterior
  • Flat Aluminum or Wood Floor
  • Delivered to Your Site

Renting an “easy access” modular container instead of a shipping container has several advantages. A main advantage of renting an “easy access” modular container is its appearance. Many customers prefer the smooth white sides of an “easy access” modular container to the corrugated steel of a shipping container. With an “easy access” modular container, you don’t have to worry about the color or condition of your shipping container. Many clients also find the easy-access roll-up door to be easier to operate than the cargo doors of a shipping container.

However, shipping containers are available in a wider range of sizes than our modular containers. Georgia Storage Containers offers shipping container rentals in sizes from 10ft to 53ft. The cargo doors of a shipping container are also more secure than a roll-up door.

20ft-easy-modular-containerGeorgia Storage Containers “easy access” modular containers are comparable to PODS® storage containers but are NOT the same thing. Our “easy access” modular containers are placed on-site for the duration of the rental period. They are not able to be moved after they have been filled with your items. Our “easy access” modular containers are also available in a larger size than the PODS® storage container. Our 20ft “easy access” modular storage containers are 25% larger (at no extra cost), than the 16ft PODS® storage container.

If our “easy access” modular containers aren’t right for your rental needs, please consider the shipping containers, storage containers, and storage trailers that we have available for rent.

If you would prefer to own your container, Georgia Storage Containers offers storage containers and shipping containers for sale. We also offer custom modifications and are able to customize a storage container to meet your unique storage requirements. We are the #1 choice for all your container needs!

If any hardworking group of individuals needs a reliable form of storage, it’s the United States military. We know that the military requires storage with the ability to endure a wide spectrum of weather changes, and our containers are up to the task.

Available in the metro Atlanta area, we’ll make things easy by delivering your rental container to you directly.

Our rental services allow you to commit to as little or as much time as you need, and the period is extendable to an indefinite amount of time.



Military training requires a sturdy form of barricades for situations requiring trainees to hide behind something. The container will stay standing despite any forces posed against it—whether they are natural or manmade. Your shipping container rental unit is sturdy enough for long-term outdoor usage, and our simple rental process allows you to make an agreement without signing off on an expensive commitment. You can rent on a monthly basis.


Shipping container housing is more than just a hip fad; it’s a sustainable living solution that—in many settings—is a more practical choice than permanent, traditionally built housing.

And, of course – storage:

The aforementioned durability of our containers makes them viable storage options for the type of equipment needed by the military—in fact, few storage structures are able to hold the types of materials that shipping containers can. Their strength complements their large capacities, providing them with the construction tailor-made to carry what you need to store. Georgia Storage Containers allows you to rent for the amount of time that works for you—however short or long that may be.

Shipping Containers as File and Record Storage

Those familiar with the structure and form behind the shipping container know that its high levels of security, durability, and safety are ideal for any type of storage. However, most people don’t think about shipping containers as file and record storage.

While many people let hefty filing cabinets take up valuable indoor office space, others are utilizing the shipping container for file and record storage. Especially when equipped with one of our reliable locking systems, the contents of your shipping container are guaranteed to stay there—neither thieves nor the worst of Mother Nature will be able to get inside.

The image of a large, empty shipping container may make you think that organization would be difficult, but don’t worry—Georgia Storage Containers offers several modification options that turn a shipping container from a cave into a storage closet you don’t mind spending some time in.


Based on the amount of file storage you are looking to accommodate, we can provide the perfect amount of shelves to make your files easy to reach. We’ll create a shelving system that works for you—plus we’ll have it completely set up prior to delivery. Additionally, if your storage needs change, then our shelves can be simply moved or adjusted to another part of the container. Our shelving systems use the interior “D” rings, so the container does not need to be further modified for them to hang up.  We can also install free standing shelves as an option.  The free standing bulk shelving systems are available in multiple configurations.

Lighting FixturesOverhead Lighting

To further improve your accessibility, we can also install electricity and lighting so you can reach those files even in window-free containers. In addition to the heightened convenience of working in a structure lit up inside, light also makes the container feel more like home. You can spend hours—if need be—inside this box without straining your eyes.

To Buy or to Rent? That is the Question

By June 2nd, 2014 About Containers No Comments
Please, feature an image for this post.

Now that you know you need a storage container or trailer, you have an important decision to make. Should you permanently make the container your own, or just rent it until you’re done?

40' Container Lease

The most important factor to consider when answering this question is the length of time you need the container.  However, depending on the nature of your use, sometimes buying makes more sense than renting and vice versa.

Buying a container gives you complete freedom with your container decisions. From sizing to insulation, our containers available for purchase give you a large variety of options to choose from. We can even provide custom-sized containers by cutting down larger ones, if your needs call for a structure sized differently than our typical offerings. And once the container is yours, you can turn it into anything you want.

Purchasing the container keeps things easy, but there are many situations in which it’s smarter and more cost-effective to rent the box.

When to rent:

Renting a container is a way to obtain top-quality storage for the time period that you need it—while avoiding upfront payments of thousands of dollars. It’s simple: the key word that separates renters and buyers is “temporary.” Renting for a short period of time is much more economical then purchasing a container.

Still unsure? You wouldn’t want to be kicking yourself later for dropping a lot of money on a container that now just takes up space on your lot. Here are some situations that would warrant a rental rather than purchase:

  • 20-ContainerYou’re remodeling your house
  • You’re moving and need to clean out your house
  • You’re doing a construction project
  • You’re unsure of the specific codes of your geographic area that might govern the long-term presence of a shipping container
  • You’re unsure of how your neighbors would react to a shipping container on your property
  • You don’t know where you would keep your container after you are done using it
  • You simply don’t know how long you will use the container

We’re happy to help you decide the options that work best for you. Call Georgia Storage Containers at (678) 829-5902 to discuss your needs with one of our sales representatives, or get a quote now.

Portable Storage Applications: PODS® vs. Storage Containers

By April 17th, 2014 About Containers No Comments
Please, feature an image for this post.

The need for temporary storage becomes inevitable at some point during every person or business’s lifetime. You know that you need to store items outside of your home, office, or warehouse…but where to begin? The multitude of storage options available may seem like a daunting task to sift through.  So we’ve provided a useful comparison between two of the most popular solutions out there: storage containers and PODS®.


Is a storage container for me?

Storage containers are generally available in sizes ranging in length from 10ft to 53ft. You should rent or buy a storage container if you need a large, durable structure to hold your belongings—and have room for it on-site. They are versatile enough to store just about anything from household items to farm equipment and industrial supplies to retail products.  During the time that the container is on your property, you can rest assured that nothing will get in or out of the storage container (unless you put it in there). Georgia Storage Containers even offers a variety of additional lock options and mechanisms to further increase security.  Our storage containers’ original purpose of transporting cargo on the unpredictable ocean should give you confidence of their strength. This resilience also comes in handy with the irregularity of the weather, especially during winter months.

Additionally, storage containers are probably for you if your needs require a modified storage space. If you are purchasing a container, we can equip it to be temperature-controlled, shelved, floored, and can even install custom doors windows, skylights, lighting, and electricity—details that can make long-term storage much more suited to your unique storage application.

If your space is limited, you need the unit to move your residence, or you plan on storing items at your residence (and you live a subdivision)…a storage container may not be for you.  Even though storage containers are very versatile and come in various sizes; if your property cannot accommodate a container, then you may want to consider another option or renting out off-site space.

Are PODS® for me?

PODS® are ideal for people dealing with either a residential move or residential lack of space. When renting with PODS®, you have the option to load the unit at home and have it stored in a local PODS® facility. Many people who are looking to store their belongings in off-site locations opt for PODS® as opposed to the traditional mini storage facilities.  You can also rent PODS® to assist in both local and long-distance moves, delivering your possessions from place-to-place.

This ability is desirable for anyone remodeling or moving their home because they do not have to keep their belongings on their property. However, given that these units are typically smaller than the storage containers rented by Georgia Storage Containers, some customers choose to keep the PODS® on their own property.  Unlike a shipping container, PODS® are also equipped with roll up doors.

PODS® are probably not for you if you are looking to store large and/or heavy items. Some storage applications simply demand a structure with the strength and storage capacity of a storage container.

Storage Containers vs. PODS®

By March 7th, 2014 About Containers, Uncategorized No Comments

Whether you are moving your business, changing residences, remodeling your home or you just need additional on-site storage…you have several options in terms of deciding how you will store your items. Portable storage provider PODS® may offer storage solutions across the US, but with a little digging you’ll find smaller, local companies that may better satisfy your needs with a different product: the shipping container. Shipping containers are also very versatile, as they can be modified to fit your unique storage requirements.  Look no further than Georgia Storage Containers for the strong, secure structure you need.


Each PODS® unit is equipped with a roll-up door, making loading and unloading easier, as the door is lightweight and can roll up effortlessly. However, these features also mean that the doors may not be completely secure. Generally, roll-up doors are not 100 percent water tight or rodent proof. Unless a shipping container is modified, it will come with standard cargo doors on one end.  The doors are guaranteed to be as durable as the shipping container itself.  The cargo doors will ensure your valuables will be protected against water damage and pesky little critters (as long as the doors are closed of course). If the convenience of roll-up doors is something you are looking for, Georgia Storage Containers offers both standard galvanized steel roll-up doors and heavy-duty roll-up doors upon request.



When determining the exact storage need, you should also consider the size of the container that will work best for you.  PODS® and shipping containers vary greatly in size. Georgia Storage Containers can rent (or sell) you a container ranging in size from 10 to 53 feet long, whereas PODS® offers 7 foot, 12 foot, and 16 foot portable storage units. The sizes of PODS® are convenient for people who are moving and have a good idea of how much space their things will take up in a container, but shipping containers serve as more of a blank slate for those with unconventional or larger-scaled storage needs.


Variability in size isn’t the only way that Georgia Storage Containers’ highly customizable storage containers can be transformed to suit your needs. For starters, containers can be modified to feature the aforementioned roll-up doors. You can also choose from a steel door practical for both industrial and residential purposes, secured with a deadbolt, handle lock and overhead drip ledge. Georgia Storage Containers also offers a residential personnel door (with or without a security swing arm). Windows, skylights, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and lighting features can be installed to turn your box into a space you don’t mind spending time in. Finally, you can utilize the storage space by equipping it with shelves and increase the already effective security of the container by adding additional locking mechanisms.


Shipping containers are made for the high seas, but shipping is hardly the only use for these containers. People have latched on to the steel resistance of shipping containers for housing purposes, retail purposes, etc—because they know that it’s a structure you can count on. You can rest assured that your things will be safe inside of a shipping container; always wind and water tight and highly secure.  No matter the weather at your location or time of year, a storage container from Georgia Storage Containers will not fail to withstand anything Mother Nature throws at it. This strength also means the container is near-impossible to break into…creating the peace of mind that your valuables are safe and secure. PODS® offer key lock systems, but a shipping container is customizable with more complicated and secure locking mechanisms to choose from.


There are upsides and downsides to working with both larger and smaller companies.  If you are looking for a regional or national moving solution, PODS® may be the answer for you.  However, in many storage situations you’ll find that working with a smaller company can lead to a more pleasurable experience. You’ll find that smaller companies will always maintain close contact with their customers, come through with delivering and picking up when they say they will and are willing to have conversations about the prices that work for you. Small companies (local to where you need your container) will also have knowledge of the laws and ordinances in your area. Their familiarity will allow them to offer you sound advice in terms of the best options for your unique storage requirements.

Rent a Portable Storage Container During the Holiday Season

holiday storage containers

Are you a retailer that has an overstock of holiday inventory or do you offer a “Layaway” program? If so, you may want to consider renting portable storage containers.

The holiday season is right around the corner. As retailers nationwide prepare for the chaotic push to reach record sales, the portable storage industry awaits its entry into easing the chaos.

At this time each year, retailers strategize on marketing campaigns and promotions that will increase sales. One of the strategies that is most beneficial to the consumer, is the “Layaway” program. This program allows the consumer to claim an item and purchase the item over several payments. What this means for Walmart, Toys R Us, Sears and other top retailers offering this program, is a high increase in divided inventory. Each item with a partial payment needs to be inventoried separate from the typical inventory on hand. While retailers may find this to be a headache, the local portable storage industry sees this as an opportunity to help retailers and consumers come up with a portable storage solution that will get everyone through the holiday season.

Although not all retailers offer a “Layaway” program, this does not mean that the services of a local portable storage provider are not needed. With portable storage being efficient, affordable, and secure, it’s a no brainer solution to most retailers high inventory dilemma. Storage containers are readily available, quickly delivered and quickly picked up. They are a temporary solution to a temporary problem. Storage containers give retailers the ability to scale their needs based on the demand each holiday season provides.

In addition to being a problem solver of divided inventory, the portable storage solution is a solution to the general high inventory season. Any CEO, small business owner or store manager understands the importance of controlling their inventory. A business owner’s worst nightmare is to run out of stock of an item on the shelf; especially while consumers are in the store wanting to purchase those items. Another dreadful scenario could occur when stocked items need to be replenished and you don’t know where the overstock is stored. During the busy holiday season, it is vital to properly store your inventory and have it accessible to conveniently be restocked. Portable storage containers kept in the business’s parking lot or behind the warehouse allow inventory to be properly kept, cataloged and easily accessed to restock.

The busy holiday season is quickly approaching for retailers. If you’re a retailer that has an excess of holiday inventory or you offer a “Layaway” program, a portable storage container could be the answer for you. Consider contacting Georgia Storage Containers and let us help you ease some of the stress during this very busy season.
