What is portable storage?

We provide Edmonton’s premium portable storage services for unmatched value and customer service.

Portable storage is one of the most efficient and cost-effective storage methods available. A sea-can-style container is delivered straight to your door, allowing you to load your belongings at your own pace. After your portable storage container is packed, it will be transported to your new location. Take as much time as you require to empty your storage container. When you’re ready, give us a call and we will remove it from your residence. Your packed portable storage container can also be moved and stored at our secure Edmonton facility for as long as you need.

For larger moves, we can provide multiple portable storage containers. If you have an overflow of extra belongings but not enough for an additional container, our vault storage containers are an excellent alternative.

Take advantage of our bundled services for a smoother move and greater savings. Contact one of our local team members in the Edmonton area to discuss the right moving and storage options for you.
