What a Galvanized Portable Storage Box Is

 

Galvanized portable storage boxes are storage units with a floor, four walls, a 76-inch wide by 86-inch tall door, and a seamless roof made of aluminum or steel. They can be loaded onto a truck bed assembled or disassembled. They can sit on a concrete pad outdoors, which makes them a convenient option for temporary storage. They can be loaded onto large storage racks and placed in a vertical orientation, much like pallets of items in a warehouse are placed on tall shelving units. The outside can be labeled for ease of locating them in a large storage facility or yard. The inside offers a non-skid bamboo flooring that is weather-proof and slip-resistant. They're water-tight and fire-resistant for safety and protection.

 

When to Use a Galvanized Storage Box

 

There are many times to consider a smooth portable storage box for your needs. If you're remodeling your home, this type of storage unit can be set up in your driveway to hold your furniture and belongings. If you plan to sell your home, real estate agents suggest removing at least one-third of your belongings in order to make the space more inviting to potential buyers. Many business owners purchase supplies in bulk or work ahead to produce an inventory for the rush season. A portable storage box can hold the excess items that don't fit in your workspace or on the floor of your retail shop.

Who Uses Portable Storage Containers? 

 

A portable storage container is a container that can be transported, picked up, and delivered to a local warehouse or your new home for storage. Storage containers are durable, secure, and sturdy and play a significant role in keeping things safe and secure. However, portable storage containers can be either for residential use or business use. 

 

There are various reasons that a homeowner may purchase or lease a portable storage container. If you want to relocate to a new home or city, and you may take some time before moving into your new home, a storage container can act as a secure storage place for your items. If you are renovating your home or building a new home, a portable storage container can keep you organized and track. You can customize and create a home from shipping containers to live a low-maintenance lifestyle and save money. 

 

If you have a construction company, you can convert a portable container to a toilet facility or store. And instead of having your workers move from place to place in search of food, you can modify a container to act as a food truck, café, or coffee bars. You can also modify portable storage containers to serve as a playhouse, workshop or office, patio or deck, pool, sauna, garden, or hotel. 

 

What Is the Difference between Storage, Conex, and Shipping Containers?

 

The ease of doing business globally and large-scale globalization play a significant role in increasing the need for bulk transportation, resulting in increased shipping container use. And although companies manufacture shipping containers using different materials, the containers also have some traits that differentiate them. Let's remove the confusion and understand the differences between shipping containers, Conex boxes, and storage containers. 

 

Shipping Containers

 

As the name states, shipping containers are boxes built to ship cargo through the sea. Companies that manufacture shipping containers use high-quality Corten steel, ensuring that they are durable. This material is ideal for long trips since the steel corrodes slowly after some years. 

 

They also come with a rigid structure that enhances their structural integrity. And because of this trait, these containers cannot have problems accommodating heavy objects, equipment, and machinery, making them a reliable, safe, and best option for transporting large quantities. They come in standard sizes that vary between 20-foot and 40-foot, and their lifespan ranges from 16 to 18 years because of their high resistance nature to corrosion and rust. 

 

Storage Containers

 

They are containers used for storing goods. However, shipping containers are ideal storage container options since they are durable and waterproof. Aluminum shipping containers are the most common types of storage containers. When it comes to shipping goods in the sea, these containers are not the best; hence you can utilize them to store personal belongings and commercial goods. 

 

Storage containers come in different sizes, between 10 feet to 45 feet, with a lifespan of five to 10 years. Most miniature containers are the best for homeowners and entrepreneurs searching for a space-saving container that can safely store their goods. Most storage containers come with doors that roll-up like garages for easier access. 

 

Conex Containers

 

In the 1950s, the U.S. military used aluminum shipping containers to ship their goods from one country to another. However, these containers underwent heavy transit damage. This forced the U.S Army Transportation Corps to create a corrugated steel container that was more durable and secure than the aluminum containers. 

 

These containers succeeded heavily during the Korean War, prompting the U.S. Army Transposition Corps to modernize them to meet their requirements and needs. And after some time, the containers advanced into flexible units, which could stack efficiently to hoard goods and products.

 

What Are the Different Conditions of Shipping Containers? 

 

You must make the right decision before purchasing a shipping container. Unfortunately, it is common for buyers to get confused when purchasing a container. However, understanding the different container conditions and grading information can help you purchase a container that meets your needs and preferences. 

 

One-Trip or New Container

 

A one-trip container is a brand-new container that comes with a single cargo load. These containers only make one trip and are later sold for other applications and storage services. They are an excellent shipping choice since they do not undergo a lot of handling at the port or on the vessel. If you want to purchase a container for storage purposes, a one-trip container is an ideal choice since you will escape the maintenance hassle. 

 

Refurbished

 

Refurbished containers are carefully chosen containers that undergo top-notch repair and repaint. They are an ideal choice for buyers who want high-quality containers with no flaws and higher service life. Manufactures of refurbished containers carefully select containers to be refurbished, inspect them, wire wash them to remove rust, rough spots, and other old decals, and later paint them with rust-prohibitive paint. 

 

Used Container

 

These containers are the best options for buyers with short-term needs and on a tight budget. However, these containers come in three options: as-is containers, wind water-tight containers, and cargo-worthy containers. As-is containers are storage containers with potential door, floor, and seek damages. With these containers, there is a high possibility that you will face numerous challenges in and refurbishing them might not solve the problem. 

 

Wind water-tight containers are slightly above the as-is containers and are ideal for customers who want a short-term storage facility. Cargo-worthy containers are used containers that are robust, leak-proof, and offer customers with a long life span. However, they are not the best for storing high-quality goods and products.
