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.

One
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.
 Mobile Storage Containers North Hills, CA
When you modify a shipping container for your business, you won't have to worry about expensive, lengthy and complicated construction.

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.

CUSTOM CONTAINERS FOR YOUR HOME IN North Hills, CA

Building additions to your home can be very expensive and requires going through the hassle of securing permits and waiting for construction.

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.

 Rent Shipping Containers North Hills, CA

HERE'S WHY YOU SHOULD CHOOSE US TO RENT, BUY OR MODIFY A SHIPPING CONTAINER FOR YOUR HOME:

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.

Renting a storage container at your home keeps your belongings close and gives you convenient 24/7 access, so you're always able to retrieve the contents of your container when you need to.

We know move in and move out dates don't always line up. We can store your packed rental container at our secure facility until your new home is ready.

With our mobile storage containers for rent in North Hills, CA, you can save up to 40% when compared to full-service long-distance movers, while gaining more flexibility in your schedule.

We know your needs may change suddenly. With our extensive inventory and variety of sizes of portable offices and shipping containers to rent, buy or modify in North Hills, CA, we provide fast service and the best value possible so it's easy for you to get whatever you need when you need it.

Renting storage containers and portable offices from us gives you more flexibility when it comes to your schedule and options. If you don't have enough space at your current location or simply would prefer offsite storage, you can keep your rental storage and office containers at your location or ours - whichever is most convenient for you. You also get more options to choose from when it comes to size and features, like portable offices with divided rooms for private meetings or office/storage combos for storage and office space in one container. All while costing a fraction of the price of a pod or self-storage facility.

You can also buy new or used freight containers from us and choose from a variety of add-ons, including lights, electricity, doors and windows. Or fully customize a shipping container to save time, money and energy by skipping the expensive, lengthy process of constructing building additions. We can modify a Conex box into whatever you can imagine for any use you need, from construction tool cribs to office buildings, monitoring stations, mobile communication towers and much more.

HERE'S HOW WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK:

You'll never face hidden fees or surprises with us. We give you transparent billing up front at the best prices.

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.

A big cut in water use is needed to prevent officials from implementing even more stringent measures to mitigate the drought. What to know.

NORTH HOLLYWOOD, CA -- Six million residents in Southern California will face water restrictions next month after water officials declared a severe shortage emergency amid the state's worsening drought.

Residents across dozens of Southland cities — including North Hollywood — will fall under such restrictions as the region continued to experience severely limited water supplies, according to the Metropolitan Water District.

Starting June 1, outdoor watering will be cut to just one day a week in North Hollywood, according to water officials. As a result, yellow and brown lawns were expected to be the norm this summer.

Although attempting to use less water in households will help, officials have identified outdoor watering as one of the biggest uses of water contributing to worsening drought conditions.

Residents were urged to make changes to save water, such as removing lawns and replacing them with native plants that require less irrigation.

"We cannot afford green lawns," MWD General Manager Adel Hagekhalil said.

MWD member water agencies that fail to enforce the new rules will face fines of up to $2,000 per acre-foot of water supplied by the MWD that exceeds monthly allocation limits.

Member agencies will also be responsible for determining which days watering will be allowed for their customers. Individual agencies can also opt to meet a reduced limit on the overall amount of water they use instead of enforcing the one-day watering rule. If the agencies exceed the limit, they will face the same fines.

It's an unprecedented move for the Southland's largest water supplier, and it signals a shift to more aggressive conservation measures across Southern California.

The average potable water use across the MWD's service area amounts to 125 gallons per day. In comparison, customers of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power use about 111 gallons per person per day, Ellen Cheng, a spokesperson for the department, told the Los Angeles Times.

Water customers will need to slash water use by 30 percent to make a difference and to combat drought conditions "unlike anything we've experienced before," the MWD said.

The following cities, neighborhoods and locations will be affected by the new water restrictions, according to the MWD.Agoura Hills.Arcadia.Avocado Heights.Azusa.Baldwin Park.Bassett.Bradbury.Calabasas.Camarillo.Canoga Park.Chatsworth.Chino.Chino Hills.City of Industry.Claremont.Covina.Culver City.Duarte.El Monte.Encino.Fontana.Granada Hills.Hacienda Heights.Irwindale.La Puente.La Verne.Los Angeles.Mission Hills.Monrovia.Montclair.Moorpark.Newbury Park.North Hills.North Hollywood.North Whittier.Northridge.Oak Park.Ontario.Oxnard.Pacific Palisades.Pacoima.Panorama City.Playa del Rey.Playa Vista.Point Mugu Naval Air Warfare Center.Port Hueneme.Naval Construction Battalion Center Port HuenemePorter Ranch.Rancho Cucamonga.Reseda.Rialto.Rosemead.San Gabriel.Sherman Oaks.Simi Valley.Somis.South El Monte.South Pasadena.Spy Glass Hill.Studio City.Sun Valley.Sunland.Sylmar.Tarzana.Temple City.Thousand Oaks.Tujunga.Universal City.Upland.Valinda.Valley Village.Van Nuys.Venice.West Covina.West Hills.West Hollywood.Westlake Village.Whittier.Winnetka.Woodland Hills.

"We have to make these finite supplies last the entire year," Hagekhalil said in a statement Tuesday. "If we don't cut back now, we could be limited to providing only enough water to meet health and human safety needs in these communities."

The new rules will affect residents in areas that rely on the State Water Project. Because of the drought, the state has cut water project deliveries to just 5 percent of requested allocations. The State Water Project typically provides 30 percent of the water used in Southern California.

The watering restrictions will take effect June 1. MWD officials warned that if the rules don't result in sufficient water savings, additional restrictions are possible, including a complete ban on "all nonessential outdoor irrigation."

More restrictions could be imposed as early as Sept. 1.

All of the Southland and 92 percent of the state was under severe drought, according to the National Integrated Drought System. Such conditions have the potential to lengthen and intensify fire season as fuels continue to dry out. Severe drought can also stress trees, trigger plants to increase reproductive mechanisms and increase diseases among wildlife.

"This is a crisis unlike anything that we've seen before," MWD Executive Officer Deven Upadhyay said. "We really only have a little more than half of the water that we need to be able to make it through the summertime and into the end of the year under normal demands, and that's why normal will not work."

The watering restrictions will also affect at least some customers served by the Las Virgenes Municipal Water District, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the Upper San Gabriel Valley Municipal Water District, Inland Empire Utilities Agency, Calleguas Municipal Water District and Three Valleys Municipal Water District.

Gov. Gavin Newsom last month directed the MWD and other water suppliers statewide to ramp up conservation efforts by advancing water-shortage contingency plans.

The MWD offers a rebate of $2 per square foot for people who replace their grass lawns with water-efficient landscaping. Rebates were also available from other local water agencies.

The rebate program helped remove 200 million square feet of grass, which saved enough water to provide about 62,000 homes with water each year, officials said.

During the state's annual April 1 Sierra Nevada snowpack survey, officials found that levels were just 38 percent of average. As of Friday, the state had received 15.63 inches of rain, 75 percent of the historical average, according to California Water Watch.

Coupled with Newsom's January emergency drought declaration, that means another summer of water restrictions.

Despite the healthy amount of snow and rain that fell on Northern California last month, the state remained in a drought.

State emergency regulations directed residents to do the following:Turn off decorative water fountains.Turn off or pause irrigation systems when it's raining and for two days after rain.Use an automatic shut-off nozzle on water hoses.Use a broom, not water, to clean sidewalks and driveways.Give trees just the water they need. Avoid overwatering.
