Sizing will be dependent on what your plans are for the container or storage unit.

Why Southwest Mobile Storage is an Alternative to Mobile Mini

Southwest Mobile Storage is a great alternative to Mobile Mini, in both affordability and customization when it comes to storage units and containers.

We offer a variety of ISO containers, with the ability to modify and cut down any containers.

Our fabrication department can create unlimited options for your storage container. Where many of our competitors refurbish and modify their containers in an open-air yard, we do so within a 60,000 square foot facility.

Southwest Mobile Storage has become a leader in the shipping container industry, selling both B2B and B2C that meet the highest possible standards.

We also refurbish containers. We wash, grind, primer, and then paint the containers with a high grade industrial, long-lasting beige paint. Most of our competitors will just paint the container, without cleaning, grinding, or priming the container.

This causes the paint to start flaking off the unit after about six months.

Our containers have been used for a wide variety of projects:

  • Classrooms
  • Pop up shops
  • Offices
  • Concession stands
  • Labs
  • Bathrooms
  • Homes & living spaces

Because we are able to modify our containers, you can use them for whatever you need it for!

For example, if your business has grown but you don’t have the office space for all of your employees and equipment, you can choose one of our containers as an added mobile office.

Or maybe you just need additional storage for your home.

When making the choice of using containers, it’s important that you know the different options so that you can make the best decision that will benefit you or your business.
