When you own a business or manage one, it's crucial to have efficient, affordable ways to store inventory and supplies, whether it's to grow your business or adapt to changes in the market, like the many caused by the pandemic.

Renting storage containers to keep at your business eliminates the cost and hassles of sending your staff to offsite storage facilities. Steel containers with roll up doors make storing and retrieving items faster and easier. Auto repair shops and other businesses that need easy access throughout the workday to secure storage for tools, parts, equipment or supplies find renting shipping containers to be the best solution for their business storage needs. Southwest Mobile Storage has your back.

 Storage Containers For Rent Glendale, CA

Renting portable offices gives your business more workspace, breakrooms, pop up stores, security booths and more, without the cost and red tape associated with constructing building additions. Plus, a steel storage container fits neatly into one parking space and provides much stronger security than Pods and way more convenience than self-storage units.

If you have a specific need, we can modify shipping containers to build whatever you need to grow your business. Whether it's a portable workspace to run your business, like a pop-up container bar, or a durable facility for scientific research, like a container laboratory, or even a container gym, our unrivaled fabrication facility and modification experts got you covered. Our full-time, in-house staff of certified welders, engineers, electricians, carpenters and painters have over 500 years combined experience modifying thousands of container projects for just about any business use you can imagine.


Offsite storage alternatives cause a mess of hassles and headaches. Expanding office space and storage capacity at your location saves time, money and hassle of making multiple trips offsite.
We offer more choice in security, size and features in steel Conex boxes or ISO shipping containers than a public storage unit or Pod for less cost and far greater service.
We offer flexible, month-to-month rental agreements and prorate by the day after your first 28-day billing cycle.
With us, you get a dedicated account manager you can rely on, so you can focus on running your business than waste time with a different person every time you call that doesn't know or care as much.
While other companies may have some staff for modifying containers, most outsource the work, so you don't know who is actually doing the modifications or how much they're marking up the price.

When you modify a shipping container for your business, you won't have to worry about expensive, lengthy and complicated construction.
We have modified thousands of containers nationwide and internationally for more than 25 years for NASA, US Navy, GCP Applied Technologies, Helix and Sundt to name a few. And rent containers to Amazon, Walmart and many of other nationally recognized brands.
Our extensive staff makes it possible to custom build multiple projects simultaneously and our 90,000 sq ft indoor fabrication facility prevents contaminants from interfering with fabrication, which delivers better quality and precision.


Building additions to your home can be very expensive and requires going through the hassle of securing permits and waiting for construction. You can save money, time and stress by modifying a shipping container instead. Whether you need additional space for a home gym, recreation or storage, we can convert steel containers into anything you can imagine. Our custom container gyms, man-caves or she-sheds, garages and more give you the extra space you need without the hassle, cost and wait that comes with home renovation.

Renting shipping containers for temporary storage, either when moving or dealing with restoration from a fire or flood, provides a secure, convenient way to keep your belongings close for accessing them whenever you need to. Plus, renting mobile storage containers for moving costs less than traditional movers and allows you to take your time packing, reducing the stress that comes from moving.

With an extensive in-house staff and 90,000 sq ft container modification facility, we're able to deliver consistently high quality and work on multiple projects simultaneously for a fast turnaround.

Other companies don't have the facility, staff or resources to modify shipping containers and will outsource the work to various shops who may not have the special experience or tools needed to modify the right way.

You can rest assured knowing your custom container is safe in our hands. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications through every step of the process.

Renting a moving container from us makes your move much less stressful because you won't have to rush to pack your whole house into a moving truck in one day. Instead, you can take your time packing over the course of a month.

Our ISO shipping containers are weatherproof and come with vault-like security, so you don't have to worry about theft or damage to your belongings.

You won't get that level of security from U-Haul or other moving truck companies.

With us, you get a reliable, dedicated point of contact, who keeps you updated every step of the way. You can rest assured knowing you'll always get what you need, when you need it.

No other company has the breadth and depth of staff and experience that we do when it comes to modifying shipping containers. Our certified welders, engineers, electricians, plumbers, carpenters and painters have more than 500 years of combined experience in fabricating custom steel containers.

We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don't have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

Legendary songwriter and performer Roger Waters, who rose to fame in the ’60s and ’70s with the U.K. rock band he co-founded, Pink Floyd, has announced a swath of rescheduled 2022 summer tour dates.

The 77-year-old Rogers says the string of dates will be his “first farewell tour!” And it will be known as his “This Is Not a Drill Tour.”

The 36 North American dates had been slated for last summer but were postponed, like many others, because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The set of dates will begin in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on Wednesday (July 6th) and will conclude in Dallas, Texas on October 8. Fans can purchase tickets now through Ticketmaster

Waters made the news available on social media, sharing on his Facebook page that ticketholders for the 2020 dates should look for an email with further information about their rescheduled shows. And that the 2020 tickets are still valid for 2022.


He also shared a video, which you can see via the Twitter post.

Chicago developer buys 23 acres in Mesa for new industrial project

A Chicago real estate investment trust plans to add more than 400,000 square feet of new industrial space to the East Valley.Centris Mesa 80th and Pecos LLC acquired more than 23 acres on the southeast corner of 80th Street and Pecos Road near the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in late May for $16.1 million, according to real estate database Vizzda.

A Chicago real estate investment trust plans to add more than 400,000 square feet of new industrial space to the East Valley.

Centris Mesa 80th and Pecos LLC acquired more than 23 acres on the southeast corner of 80th Street and Pecos Road near the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in late May for $16.1 million, according to real estate database Vizzda. The seller was TGD 2 LLC, which Vizzda traces to Cedar Point Builders, a commercial contractor based in Mesa.

Centris Industrial — a newly formed REIT sponsored by Chicago-based CA Ventures — will develop warehouse space across two buildings on the site, according to the developer.

Joe Trinkle, chief operating officer and Southwest market officer for Centris, said his firm had been looking at sites in Mesa for over a year for its next project. Trinkle said this site was the right size for what the group wanted to do next.

"There's tremendous population growth and it's an affluent population that needs business services," Trinkle said of Mesa. "Our customers like to be located where they can find quality labor."

Cushman & Wakefield’s Phil Haenel was the broker who represented Centris in its land acquisition. Haenel and his fellow Cushman & Wakefield colleagues Mike Haenel, Andy Markham and Brandon Borsheim will be the leasing brokers for the two class A buildings.

Southeast Mesa is one of the hottest industrial markets in the country, with investors spending hundreds of millions of dollars buying land and building industrial projects in the area. A number of large companies including Amazon and Lowes have recently announced plans for large distribution facilities near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.

The first building, which will total 101,400 square feet, can be divided for multiple tenants operating in between 25,000 and 50,000 square feet. The second building will be larger at 310,800 square feet and can be divided for multiple tenants at 50,000 square feet to 100,000 square feet and up, Trinkle said.

Possible tenants could come from the food and beverage, last-mile logistics or construction industries, among others, he said.

The two buildings total about $80 million of new construction, Trinkle said. LGE Design Build has been tasked to design and construct the two buildings. Hunter Engineering is the civil engineer. Trinkle expects construction to start in late 2022, most likely in November. Construction for the two buildings will be ongoing concurrently and is expected to be completed in the first half of 2024.

CA Ventures — through its affiliate CA Industrial — broke ground on the first two buildings of the Luke Logistics Center last November. The park, located on the northwest corner of Loop 303 and Glendale Avenue, will eventually include four buildings on about 90 acres, totaling 1.4 million square feet.

Trinkle said there are no tenant commitments on that project as of yet. The first two buildings will be delivered in the early fourth quarter of this year. LGE Design Build is handling the design and construction of Luke Logistics Center as well.

Trinkle added that construction on the final two buildings will begin later this year and will be completed by the middle of next year.

As of the first quarter of 2022, the Phoenix region had more than 350 million square feet of existing industrial space, making the Valley one of the largest industrial markets in the West behind several California markets, according to Colliers International research.

With a vacancy rate of 4% as of the first quarter, rental rates for the industrial market are up 15.2% year over year. Construction increased by 12.3% to 33.9 million square feet of industrial space under construction as of Q1 2022, according to Colliers.

Roger Waters has rescheduled his “This Is Not a Drill” tour dates for Summer 2022. Waters, co-founder of Pink Floyd, had originally announced the dates for 2020. Unfortunately due to circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, he had to postpone the tour, and Consequence Sound reports that his team ultimately decided to kick off what is being billed as his “first farewell tour” in Pittsburgh, PA, on July 6th.

Waters will then travel all over the United States, with a few stops in Canada, before finishing the tour on October 15th in Mexico City, Mexico. The plan is a long time coming, with Waters having announced the new tour dates more than a year ago. Waters, who is now 78, and who will be turning 79 during the tour on the same day he performs in Denver, CO, will reportedly play “a dozen great songs from Pink Floyd’s golden era.”

Ticket holders who previously bought their tickets for the 2020 dates need not worry – Waters announced through his Facebook page that these tickets will be transferable for the new Summer 2022 dates.

Amazon Style is now open at The Americana at Brand in Glendale. The store puts a high-tech twist on the typical clothes shopping experience with QR codes and special dressing rooms with secret doors that are key to the entire experience.

Let me explain.

For starters, the store was bigger than I expected, but it’s actually cut in half. Half of the store is “shoppable,” the other half is where the clothes are stored and employees are busy bringing items to dressing rooms.

More on that in a bit.

Follow Rich DeMuro on Instagram for more tech news, reviews and cool stuff.

There is just one of each item on the floor. There’s no sifting through different sizes and colors to look for your fit. Everything has a QR code on it.

If you find something you like, you scan the QR code using the Amazon app on your phone. If you don’t need to try it on, you can send it directly to pickup and checkout. If you need to try it on, you can send it to a fitting room where you’ll meet your clothes later.

Since it takes a bit to retrieve your clothes and prep your room, you can continue to shop and add clothes your room until you get a notification that your dressing room is ready.

On the floor is a mix of brands you know and Amazon’s house brands. The company is using a lot of data to stock these stores. If an item is a top seller online, it has a good chance of appearing in the store. There are also brands in the store that have never been sold in a physical location.

There are over 40 high tech fitting rooms, many of them on the second floor. Once yours is ready, you use your phone to unlock it wirelessly.

When you walk inside, it’s a sizeable room. The items you picked are already placed inside, along with a few suggestions Amazon’s algorithms think you might like.

There’s also a big touch screen inside the fitting room. You can use this to request a new size or color of an item you try on, or see suggestions for more items you might like and request those be brought to your dressing room.

While you’re waiting, you can scroll through various clothing items and thumbs up or down them to help Amazon’s AI build a better picture of your fashion sensibilities. This will power future suggestions on the website and in store.

Now, about those secret doors. This is the key to the entire operation.

Inside the fitting room, there is a special closet with double doors.

Employees quietly open the “back door” of this closet to add any clothes you request to the mix. They might also add a few more suggestions you might like.

For privacy reasons, while employees have the back door to the closet open, the front door you can access automatically locks. A red light lets you know the door is locked.

When the employee has finished stocking your closet, you’ll hear a notification sound and the entire closet lights up in a warm glow. The touchscreen also lets you know it’s time to open the door.

This experience is both magical and has the potential to make or break this entire operation.

If clothes take too long to be delivered, shoppers will get frustrated and won’t want to waste their time coming back.

If Amazon can deliver this experience in a timely manner, it makes solo shopping a whole lot easier because you can try on various fits without leaving the room to look for another size.

Overall, Amazon Style puts a unique twist on the clothes shopping experience and the tech even makes it kind of fun. Only time will tell if shoppers are ready for this tech-forward experience.
