Rent Commercial Containers

We understand how important it is to have efficient, affordable ways to expand your business and quickly adapt to changes in the market.

Our rental storage containers eliminate the cost and inconvenience of sending staff out to an offsite storage unit or dealing with small, less secure pods, and our mobile offices provide extra workspace whenever you need it.

We’ve got your back, whether your business is commercial, government, healthcare or education.

Here’s How:

Do you have climate control storage containers?

We offer rental containers that are temperature controlled, which are units that offer thermostat control up to 10 degrees of the outside temperature using heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) that you just have to plug into a power source or extension cord. All our mobile offices for rent come with insulation and HVAC installed. 


We designed these insulated containers with HVAC with restoration companies in mind because we know your clients need extra protection for their items.

Do you offer modular offices?

All our portable offices are ground-mounted. Modular offices are built onto a foundation that keeps your office above ground level. They often require assembly and installation once delivered to your desired location. Our mobile offices rest on the ground and do not need to be assembled or installed on delivery. Simply hook it up to a generator or other power source instead.

Can I rent more than one shipping container from you?

You sure can. Contact the branch nearest your shipping container delivery location to speak to one of our experts about renting multiple conexes.

Can I alter the rental container or add to it myself?

You can alter our rental containers and portable offices. Any alterations must be undone and the unit must be in original condition upon return. You can also choose add-ons, accessories and utilities for your rental storage and office containers from our list of rental options.

Do you have containers with side access doors to rent?

We have a limited amount of containers with roll up doors for side access available to rent. Speak to your dedicated container expert for more information. 

Do you rent containers nationwide?

We offer the ability to purchase or modify shipping containers nationwide. You can rent, buy or modify ISO containers at our branches in Arizona, California and Colorado. 

How long can I keep my storage container at my location?

Keep your rental storage container at your location for as long as you need. Once you’re finished using the container, let your dedicated container expert know and we will pick it up for you.

Do you have wet offices with plumbing to rent?

We don’t rent out mobile offices with plumbing, but we can modify portable offices and storage containers to have it for you.

Do you offer spray foam insulation in any of the units?

We can add spray foam insulation to 20-foot and 40-foot storage containers for rent. All of our mobile offices come with insulation and HVAC already installed.

How much are rental rates for a 20ft container?

The cost to rent 20-foot storage and office containers depends on many factors, like your location, current inventory, market prices and any rental options you add. Plus, the type of rental unit, such as storage or workspace, will influence your rate.

Is there a minimum amount of time I can rent a container for?

We require a minimum one month rental period. If you only need your container for a few days or weeks past the first 28-day billing cycle, we’ll prorate your rent.

Do you rent containers long-term?

We sure do. You can rent our shipping containers as long as you need.

What size containers do you rent?

We have shipping containers for rent in a variety of sizes starting at 10 feet up to 45 feet long and portable offices from 10 feet to 40 feet long. We can also modify containers to fit whatever size you need.
