SECURE YOUR CONTAINER WITH GEORGIA STORAGE CONTAINERS

By October 28th, 2015 Uncategorized No Comments

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 BOX

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 PADLOCK

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 PADLOCK

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.

 

HEAVY DUTY CARGO DOOR LOCK

Rent an “Easy Access” Modular Container from Georgia Storage Containers

By July 16th, 2015 About Containers No Comments

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.

Military Container Rentals with Georgia Storage Containers 

By November 20th, 2014 Creative Uses No Comments

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. Even if you aren’t interested in leasing a container for military purposes, read on to discover the vast diversity of our storage40-Container solutions. We hope you’ll get ideas about the myriad of ways they revolutionize modern storage and consider renting a container today.

Georgia Storage Containers is the area leader in container rentals around Atlanta, offering watertight and secure 10ft, 20ft, 40ft, 48ft and 53ft containers at your convenience. 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.

EXAMPLES OF SITUATIONAL MILITARY STORAGE:

Barricades

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.

Housing

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. When troops are living in places where it simply makes no sense to create permanent housing, storage container living quarters make a lot of sense. This smart housing option is more durable than run-of-the-mill mobile homes, and as mentioned before, can be moved without a headache if the need arises. Purchase a container for a housing conversion today. 

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

By August 26th, 2014 Uncategorized 2 Comments

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.

ShelvingShelving

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

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

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®.

10-Container

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.

To discuss your storage needs, feel free to contact Georgia Storage Containers by calling (678) 829-5902 today. If you know that a storage container suits your needs, get a quote right now.
