6 Reasons to have a Container Garage

By November 16th, 2016 Creative Uses No Comments

Have you finally dphoto-jan-13-2-40-07-pmecided to pull the trigger and buy that 1966 Mustang or that 1969 Dodge Charger that you’ve had your eye on? Your dreams are finally becoming a reality but where are you going to store your new baby? You want your shiny new toy to be safe, secure, and protected from unpredictable weather conditions. Maybe you need extra space to store your seasonal equipment such as boats, jet skis, bikes, snowmobiles, etc. Or maybe you just need some extra storage space and your garage isn’t cutting it anymore. Time for a container garage. Shipping containers are a great solution because they are affordable, durable, and easy to install, use, and maintain.

  1. Containers can handle the weight. A 20ft shipping container is about the size of a one car garage and can store about 24 tons! They are perfect to store all your seasonal toys like trailers, boats, snowmobiles, and tractors.
  2. Containers are affordable. Shipping containers definitely cost less than building a whole new garage.
  3. Containers are easy to set up. Containers are delivered on a tilt-bed truck to a location of your choosing and ready for use immediately. Make sure to pick a location where the ground is firm/level.
  4. Containers are easy to maintain. There is no real maintenance required.  They are made to withstand the elements.  However, if you are going with a used container, it’s not a bad idea to put a fresh coat of paint on the exterior.  Ask us about our painting services.   
  5. Containers are simple to use. At Georgia Storage Containers, all of our rental storage containers come standard with an “easy open” door handle on the cargo doors. If you would prefer to purchase a container, we can easily install a handle for you.
  6. Containers are safe and secure. At Georgia Storage Containers, we want to make sure your possessions are safe and secure. All of our rental storage containers come with a high-security lock box. They are safe, secure and watertight to ensure that your valuables are protected.  We can also add a lock box on any container you purchase as well.

Add Mobility and Security to Workplace – Container Offices

By September 28th, 2016 Creative Uses No Comments

Having a mobile office can be beneficial in the long run, especially for people in remote areas whose job locations are changing constantly. Mobile offices are also great for people who are self-employed or people who have a small business. Work will be more manageable, organized, and flexible. Mobile offices are very versatile, easy to set up, and secure. Container modifications are available, making it easy to build a custom office to your exact specification. Having a mobile office adds convenience to your life by being able to work from the same environment, with the same set-up, no matter where you are. Not to mention, a mobile office is a safe place to transport all your files and equipment from one place to another, when relocating is necessary. Whether you are looking for a temporary workplace or looking for a more permanent solution, converting a shipping container into a mobile office will offer many more advantages over renting or building a conventional office space.


Benefits of Shipping Containers as Mobile Offices

Environment – Shipping containers create quiet and comfortable work spaces. Unlike having a designated workspace inside your home where focusing can be difficult due to distractions, having a completely private office allows you to still be close by, but the separate space will help you work in peace. By having a mobile office, tasks can get done properly and on time, focusing on your business will be made easier without interruptions and noises.

Comfort – A mobile container office can be equipped with basic necessities to run the general operations of an office such as electricity, phone lines, and internet. Shipping containers are naturally spacious and come in various sizes to accommodate your specific needs.

Highly Customizable – Modifications can be made to ensure that your container office is just as comfortable and convenient as traditional offices. Typical container modifications include: HVAC system Windows and Skylights Personal Access Doors Custom Flooring Interior Paint Shelving Workbenches


Easy Transport of Container Offices A mobile office space made from a modified shipping container can be easily transported from location to location, even if the areas you work in are out-of-the-way. Shipping containers are made for use in normal transportation channels, and all that’s needed for set-up is a flat surface. This means that moving your office is often easier than moving other equipment to and from the site.


Shipping containers are naturally durable and weather resistant; they are designed to withstand lengthy and frequent transports. This means that there is no need to worry about damage to the structure of the office with routine transport. And as long as you properly secure your gear, the container can handle carrying plenty of weight.


Security in Mobile Office Trailers

With any office, the safety of your equipment and your clients’ information is of key importance. Mobile shipping container offices can be more secure than traditional offices, thanks to heavy gauge steel exteriors.

Shipping containers also keep the office physically secure. Because they are made of durable steel, they are effective at keeping out many common pests, such as rodents. In addition, they are wind and water resistant, meaning that you don’t need to worry about water damage or instability during a storm.

Creating a mobile office out of a shipping container has never been easier. Reduce your costs of renting expensive offices in commercial buildings and save travel time by locating your office on your own property. Let Georgia Storage Containers help you find the right solution for your business needs. Contact us today at (678) 829-5902 to discuss your options in greater detail.

Back to School With Storage Containers

By August 23rd, 2016 Creative Uses No Comments

Another school year is up20' Container Leaseon us. Many children and young adults are heading back to school this month. Teachers and administrators are preparing lesson plans to further the education of their students. Many schools are either under construction or trying to complete projects before the new school year. Summertime is ideal to complete renovations or start new construction projects, however as the school year quickly approaches, many schools are in a race against time to get the projects complete. In the event a school does not complete construction in time, a temporary on-site storage solution will be necessary.

Storage containers are ideal for short-term and long-term projects because of their mobility and flexibility. Storage containers provide a safe and secure place for teachers and administrators to store teaching supplies, computers, equipment, desks, and other materials. No need to haul everything to another facility and then have to haul it all back after a few months. On-site storage is convenient and hassle free, teachers and administrators can move items back into their classroom at the their own pace. Portable storage provides an alternative for teachers and administrators to safely store valuable supplies. Construction might force some areas of the school to be closed, which means indoor storage facilities may be temporarily converted into classrooms.

Storage containers are great for storage of items that might not get used on a daily basis, such as PE equipment, art supplies, science experiments, theater costumes and props, and other miscellaneous items. There is always a need to store equipment that is too large to store inside, such as extra chairs and tables, seasonal sports equipment, and even janitorial supplies. Storage containers are the perfect storage solution for a school environment because they are practical, secure, durable, and affordable.

School Applications:

Equipment Storage Shed – Containers can be placed near the athletic field, gym, or locker rooms for easy accessibility, convenience, and safety. Storage containers are customizable and can even be painted in your school colors. Your equipment will also be safe, secure, and out of harm’s way. Containers can also be converted into locker rooms or computer labs with some modifications done. Storage containers are great if you are on a tight budget but space is limited or runs out.

General Storage – Great for storing bulk supplies such a paper, paper towels, toilet paper, books, paint, arts and craft supplies, records, files, or other important documents. Unused furniture can also be stored safely and out of the way.

Classroom Overflow – Schools that have been closed are re-opening because of the overflow of children entering the school system. Overcrowded classrooms are becoming a trend that affects both the students and teachers negatively. Students do not get the one-on-one direction, teachers are stressed, and no personal connection is made between the student and teacher. By creating classrooms out of storage containers, you can reduce the number of students in each classroom and create a more productive environment. Students can actually get the adequate resources they need to succeed. Students can learn in a comfortable environment without have to be crammed in and ignored. A modified storage container is an affordable solution for schools looking for more space or to expand.

Modifications Available: Electrical packages Insulation Heating/Air Conditioning Fixed Shelving Custom Paint Doors Windows Skylights

Seasonal Storage Tips

By June 9th, 2016 Creative Uses No Comments

20-ContainerCreate a rotating schedule- This does not have to be a strict schedule. You can add or take out items at your leisurely pace and make a schedule that’s convenient for you. It is a good idea to create a schedule where seasonal items are being put into and taken out of the container. For example, the month of June would be a great month to make the switch, store the winter equipment and take out the summer stuff.

Reclaim you space- Take back the space in your garage. Nobody wants to park their car outside. Your car is vulnerable to theft, bad weather conditions, and even at risk for being covered in bird poop or other grime. Clear out the garage and put all your seasonal items into a storage container.

Protect your things- When items are left outside they will become damaged quickly because of unpredictable weather conditions. For example, patio furniture left out in the rain will lose the aesthetic appeal and become all mildewy. Storing seasonal items in a container will ensure protection of items that you only use for a couple of months throughout the year.

Spring cleaning made simple- When the rain just won’t go away and you are spending more time in your home, clutter begins to accumulate. Seasonal clothes and other belongings are taking over your closets and drawers. Clear out the unused clutter into storage container. The transition from winter to spring is a great time to organize your home. Time for spring cleaning!

Store Seasonal items- Do you still have that fake Christmas tree up from 6 months ago? Or maybe you still have your lights up? There is no need to have decorations sitting around for holidays that have already passed by. Time to get the holiday stuff out of the house and into a storage container. Put away seasonal sports equipment such as skis, snowboards, kayaks, jet skis, and other large equipment as well. A storage container will guarantee safekeeping of seasonal equipment when they are not being used. 


Georgia Storage Containers can help you clear up the clutter taking over your life. Do you see clutter building up in your home? Is your car parked outside because your garage is too full? GSC can help determine which container options are best for your seasonal storage plan.

Industry Legend: Rick Nuckols

By April 27th, 2016 Creative Uses No Comments

Rick NuckolsWhen a customer needs something you don’t offer, you can send them down the road. Or, you can find a way to fill the need. Rick Nuckols got started in the portable storage industry by choosing option number two.

“Right after I left the Coast Guard, I was in the construction industry,” he says. “I was working in the field as an ironworker, and also as an estimator. And somebody came into the facility and wanted some containers repaired and stored. So, I put together a small company to do that.”

This was around 1976, and Rick’s small company became Old Dominion Container Repair. He served as president until 1988.

“In 1988, I founded Container Technology Inc. and signed a contract with GE/Genstar to handle all their sales for North and South America,” Rick says. In 1991, Genstar purchased Itel Containers, becoming the largest leasing company in the world.

“When they purchased Itel, one of the divisions Itel had was Instant Space. They came to me and said they’d buy me out of my contract, and hired me as director of Instant Space for the U.S.,” says Rick.

Rick set up an office in Atlanta. However, Instant Space relocated to the San Francisco bay area in 1994. “I took that opportunity to leave the corporate environment and get back into what I truly enjoy, which is being an entrepreneur.”

At the time, Rick had a business partner, Wayne Lawson. They asked Amy Gilbert from Instant Space to join their new venture. The three of them re-built Container Technology from the ground up.

“We had 20-some containers and got back into the storage and leasing business,” says Rick. “We grew the business over a very short period. We had 1,200 containers by 1997. It was a time in the industry when people were just starting to figure out all the applications they could use containers for.”

William Scotsman approached Rick about buying his storage fleet.

“It was an asset sale, not selling the company,” he says. “Our noncompete was only for the storage side, so we continued doing sales around the country, and also modifications. In 2001, we started another dry storage division, so we were back to sales, modifications, refrigeration, and dry storage.”

As Container Technology continued to grow, it gained more suitors.

“In 2007, we had two national companies contact us about buying out our dry-storage fleet,” Rick says. “We had to decide whether to keep it and continue to grow or focus on other areas. The fleet was over 1,000 containers. We sold the fleet. Not a lot of companies have sold their storage fleet twice.”

Rick and his team continued doing sales, modifications, and refrigeration. But in 2012, the terms of the fleet-sale contract let them get back into dry storage.

Container Technology has continued to grow. “I guess it’s a combination of timing, being blessed, and making good decisions,” says Rick. “And our philosophy is always get the right people that are a good fit for what we’re trying to do.

Rick says that integrity, intelligence, and loyalty are the keys to finding the right players.

“I used to be a micromanager, and I’m someone who’s always had high expectations for myself and anybody who works with me,” he says. “But I always try to be fair and open about what’s going on and where we’re going and how. I try to give them the tools they need to succeed. We try to create an environment where they treat it like it’s their own business. Making people feel appreciated is so important.”

Rick builds that sense of ownership by basing compensation on the success of the business overall. He also helps his employees develop their careers.

“I started as a temp receptionist in 1992 for Genstar,” says Amy. “Now, I own 40 percent of Container Technology. That tells you what kind of person Rick is. He loves to see everyone around him be successful.”

It sounds like Rick leads by example.

“Rick is somebody who gives 110 percent in every single thing he does. He’s enthusiastic and energetic – it’s contagious,” says Amy. “He loves to teach and mentor people. He likes to help people be the best they can be. He’s encouraged me over the years to do things I never thought I could do.”

Rick says he’s benefited from similar support.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without my wife of 47 years,” he says. “To have someone who believes in you, who lets you put your house up as collateral? It makes all the difference. There were lots of guys who were smarter than me in this industry. However, they didn’t have that support behind them. But Sharon knew I was an entrepreneur and she gave me her unconditional support.”

Now, Rick gets to reap the benefits of building his business and team.

“This is the best team that I’ve ever had,” he says. “I get to be at the end of my career and watch them grow the business. It’s really, really rewarding. They are my ‘business family.’ Every day I come here, I’m excited.”

Shipping Container Delivery Guide

By February 29th, 2016 Uncategorized No Comments

At Georgia Storage Containers, Inc., we have over 75 years of combined experience working in the portable storage industry. We’ve seen and done it all!

You might think that the hardest part of renting a storage container is deciding what size of shipping container is best for you and your needs. But successful delivery of your storage container or containers can actually be the most difficult part. To address the common problems that we run into, we’ve put together this delivery guide.

Before you decide to rent a storage container, shipping container, or “easy access” modular rental from Georgia Storage Containers, make sure that you know the three things that are key to a successful delivery.


Imagine getting your rental storage container delivered, loaded up to the brim with your valuable items, and then receiving a call from the city or county, that it’s not allowed.

Before you spend any of your hard-earned money renting a shipping container, it is important to research if there are any regulations or restrictions for storage containers in your city, county, or homeowners association.

16ft-easy-access-modular-containerMost municipalities, counties, and associations allow storage containers. However, it’s a good idea to make sure you are not in violation of any regulations.

If a shipping container is not allowed, we also offer smooth sided “easy access” modular units as well. They have a roll up door and are similar to the PODS™ containers.


One of the most important steps to complete before ordering your shipping container is making sure that the site where you wish to place your container is suitable.

Level Surface

20-ContainerOnce delivered, shipping containers | storage containers sit in direct contact with the ground. While you can place your shipping container on almost any surface, choosing a level site with adequate drainage allows you to get the most from your storage container. Placing your container on a site that is not level and does not have adequate drainage can lead to problems opening and closing your container’s cargo doors.

However, your site does not need to be perfectly level. Our delivery drivers carry small pieces of 1” x 2” pressure treated wood and a jack. They will check the doors before leaving and are able to shim up a corner if necessary.

If the storage container is not sitting on a concrete or paved surface, additional re-leveling of the container may be needed over time. For containers sitting directly on the ground (grass or dirt surfaces), we recommend that the container be placed on landscape timbers or railroad ties. Doing so, will aid in preventing the corners of the container from sinking or settling into the ground over time.

Adequate Space for Delivery

Locations that do not have adequate space for delivery can create major issues for our drivers. In rare cases, if the space on-site is not adequate to deliver your storage container, we may not be able to drop the container exactly where you want it. Before you place an order for a shipping container or storage container, take a look at your intended container location and make sure that our delivery driver has enough space to maneuver at your location.

Due to the nature of the delivery process, every delivery site MUST HAVE at least 15 ft of overhead clearance and at minimum 2X the length of the container in a straight line.

When a container is delivered, the delivery driver will set one end of the container on the ground and pull out from underneath the container. The storage container and the delivery truck/trailer will be in one long straight line as he does so. For a better idea of this process, take a look at this video produced by the National Portable Storage Association.

Depending on the size of the shipping container you select, your container will be delivered on a small roll-back truck or a tilt bed trailer. At Georgia Storage Containers, Inc., we strongly recommend that your intended site meets, at minimum, the requirements below. For a successful delivery:

  • A 20 ft Storage Container requires 15ft of overhead clearance and approx. 50-60ft of space in a straight drive
  • A 40 ft Storage Container requires 15ft of overhead clearance and approx. 80-100ft of space in a straight drive
  • A 48 ft or 53 ft Storage Container requires 15ft of overhead clearance and approx. 100-125ft of space in a straight drive


45HC-Container-325x325When a shipping container is delivered, the delivery driver sets one of the short ends of the shipping container on the ground and drives out from underneath the container. Together the shipping container and the delivery truck make one long straight line during this process.

Standard shipping containers are built with one set of double cargo doors located on one of the short sides of the container. When the container is loaded on a truck or trailer for delivery, it can be loaded with those doors facing toward the driver’s cab or facing towards the rear of the truck/trailer. If the doors are facing the driver’s cab, the doors will touch the ground last. If the doors are facing the rear, the doors will touch the ground first.

The direction of doors when the container is loaded, determine how the doors will be positioned on-site and how you have access to your items.

Whatever your needs, we have the perfect solution for you. Our units are available for rent in lengths from 10 ft to 53 ft.

If you need to ensure the safety and security of your items, an ISO shipping container or storage container is a great choice. Designed to withstand the rigors of international shipping, they are constructed from durable cor-ten steel and are wind and watertight. They withstand all kinds of weather and have been known to weather natural disasters with barely a scratch, keeping your items safe and secure.

However, shipping containers can be vulnerable to theft. With the right knowledge, human thieves can penetrate a container, especially if a container is kept in a low-traffic area. The doors of your shipping container are an obvious entry point for thieves, as a standard ISO shipping container comes standard with two locking handles on each door. The handles each have a clasp that leaves your lock exposed.

At Georgia Storage Containers, Inc. we know that the contents you store in your storage container can be very valuable. To that end, we have several different security accessories available for rent or purchase to ensure that your container’s valuable items will stay safe and sound.


Lock BoxA Lock Box is a steel box that is welded directly to the doors of the shipping container.

The padlock is placed inside the Lock Box, hiding it from sight and protecting it from being removed with bolt cutters. We fabricate all of our Lock Boxes in our shop and our entire rental fleet comes standard with a Lock Box pre-installed at no extra charge



Standard PadlockOur standard padlock is a padlock with a long shank. The longer shank makes it the perfect thing to use with our Lock Box. The longer shank is much easier to use with our Lock Box than a standard padlock with a shorter shank. Every standard padlock is available with two keys.



Security PadlockIf you decide that a Lock Box is not for you, then our security padlock (also known as a Disc lock) is for you. Our security padlock is much better suited to being left exposed because it has a very small shank that turns inside the actual body of the lock. It won’t fit inside our Lock Box, but are perfect when placed on the clasp of the locking handles. Each security padlock is available with two keys.



Cargo Door Lock Georgia Storage ContainersIf you need to secure your valuable items in a low-traffic area then our Heavy Duty Cargo Door Lock(manufactured by The Equipment Lock Company™) is for you! Made of heavy-duty steel tubing, our Heavy Duty Cargo Door Lock is a two piece lock that clamps over the locking rods on the container doors.

Better Emergency Supply Storage with ISO Containers

By September 25th, 2015 Uncategorized No Comments

10-ContainerEver thought about what would happen in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency? Are you prepared?
