How many containers will I need?
The number of SquareFeet containers will vary depending on the size of your home and type of items you will be storing.  On average each container will hold 1 to 1 ½ rooms full of household goods and can hold up to 2,000 pounds each. An average household will require four SquareFeet containers, but of course this will vary. Take a look at our estimation page, which we're always perfecting to see if you can better estimate the number of containers needed. If you're not sure, you can still submit an order or a quote request, we'll help you figure it out.

How long does it take for you to deliver the containers?
We recommend you call and schedule your delivery as soon as your packing/moving date is planned. Last minute storage needs, don’t worry, in most cases we can deliver with a little as a 1 day notice. Our web form lets you submit requests after hours.

Are the containers weather proof?
Yes, while on your property, each SquareFeet container will have a weatherproof cover to keep out moisture and ensure the safety of your goods.

Are the portable storage containers lockable?
Absolutely, we recommend all containers be locked when not in use at your home/work and our facility. Simply place your own lock on each unit or for your convenience, you may purchase as many locks as needed from us during business hours.

How is your service different than PODS® Mobile Attic® or similar services? 
Each SquareFeet container is 5’ wide x 8’ long x 7’ high with a large swing door.  This size container makes it much easier to load items securely and to avoid damage from items shifting in transit. Larger containers make it more difficult to secure your goods safely, and require larger trucks to deliver that often can damage your driveway or landscaping.

Will you pack and unpack my on-demand mobile containers?
Sorry we do not offer this type of service at this time.

How securely do my items need to be packed inside a SquareFeet container?
Use the same principles for packing your SquareFeet container as you would a moving truck. Pack items in heavy duty moving containers, storing heavy items on the bottom, lighter items on top.  Fill in as much empty space as you can and distribute weight as evenly as possible.

How safe is your storage facility? 
You can rest easy knowing your goods are safe and secure while entrusted to us.  Our facility is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week along with having a state of the art closed circuit security system.

Are there any restrictions on what I can store in a SquareFeet container? 
Yes, Do Not store flammable/hazardous materials, weapons, explosive devices, illegal substances, liquids or perishables. Good common sense applies. The SquareFeet storage container is well-sealed, so if the label of what you're storing says store in "well ventilated area," you know not to put it in there. If you are not sure, ask us first or consult the manufacturer of the product you plan to store.

I need more than one SquareFeet container but there is not enough room in front of my home/office. Can you stagger the delivery times of additional containers?
No need to worry, we bring as many containers as you need and deliver as needed. Our web form allows you to schedule partial pick up or delivery. Be sure and make any special notes about this in the comments area for the driver.

How long do I have to load or unload the on-demand storage container?
We want customers to be able to load goods into their SquareFeet containers at their own pace, therefore we allow our customers up to 10 days to load and unload their containers. While on your property, each container will have a weatherproof cover to keep out moisture and ensure the safety of your goods.

How can I order a SquareFeet container? 
Call and speak with on of our friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives or schedule services online.

Do I have to be there when the SquareFeet container is dropped-off or picked-up? 
We could do this when you're not present as long as all paperwork is filled out prior to delivery, first months rent is paid, and specific instructions are given on where to place your SquareFeet container. Let us know and we'll try to help.

What are SquareFeet warehouse hours?
Business hours are Monday thru Friday 8:00am to 4:30pm. If you plan to access your containers during the weekend, you need to provide us with notice no later than Thursday of the previous work-week.

What if I need to access my contents while they're in storage? 
We understand that occasionally you may need access to your goods; therefore we offer free access to our customers. Simply call us 24 hours in advance and we will have your container set down in a viewing area at our facility. After hours, our security personel will provide access (you'll need to bring government-issued identification and your SquareFeet container documents.)

Are there any winter placement restrictions?
We simply request that snow and ice be removed from driveway prior to deliver or pick up, to insure your safety as well as our employees'.
