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.

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.

If you have a specific need, we can modify shipping containers to build whatever you need to grow your business.

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 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.

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 Catalina Foothills, AZ

 Rent Shipping Containers Catalina Foothills, AZ

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.

Renting storage containers and portable offices from us gives you more flexibility when it comes to your schedule and options.

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.

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.

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.

School Asthma Expert Dr. Lynn Gerald Lightens Her Load

Lynn B. Gerald, PhD, MSPH, is used to heavy lifting.

With roles as Distinguished Outreach Faculty and the Zuckerman Family Endowed Chair in Prevention and Lifestyle Medicine at the University of Arizona Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health, lightening her workload in anticipation for a year-long sabbatical beginning in July has been the opposite of the preparation she needed to become a national record holder as a powerlifter.

While powerlifters steadily increase their weight load to get stronger and more comfortable with the additional burden, unloading academic duties is what Dr. Gerald is engaged in now as she prepares to dedicate time to study how to better structure clinical trials and public health research to be more effective.

“I’ve always trained in the early morning before work,” Dr. Gerald said. “I train six days a week for about two hours. When I was doing powerlifting competitions, this focused on the three major lifts – bench, squat and deadlift – with some accessory lifting about five times a week. I also ran and did metabolic conditioning 3-5 times per week, with more focus on weights closer to competitions.”

Dr. Gerald’s dedication to fitness goes beyond powerlifting. She is a certified aerobics, CrossFit and personal trainer. She has even competed as a ballroom dancer.

Keeping fit for life

Her lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle began after she finished undergraduate studies at the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

“I had been a varsity cheerleader at UAB and, after college was over, it was like, ‘Well, what now?’ I still wanted to remain active. My husband, Joe, was in medical school at the University of South Alabama in Mobile. I took up aerobics and got certified to teach aerobics, and I got certified to be a personal trainer and to do weights. That was my second job in graduate school. I got into weightlifting that way.”

The apex of Dr. Gerald’s lifting career came when she placed second at the world championship in 2013. She was named the Arizona State 2013 Master Lifter of the Year after winning the state and national titles. She set state records in the squat (138 pounds) and bench press (110 pounds) and a national record for the strict bicep curl (77.15 pounds). The records didn’t stand long, she admits.

“It was for a very short period of time, and I'll just say there were not many of us in the older ladies category. So, yes, I do enjoy weightlifting a lot. But, since then, I've had a hip replacement (in 2018) and knee issues, so I'm not competing anymore,” she said.

These days, she still lifts and does CrossFit, but has narrowed her professional portfolio.

Asthma inhaler outreach

In her own research she has focused on improving asthma care in schools for 25 years. Dr. Gerald is a nationally-recognized expert and helped get a 2017 law passed in Arizona to allow any school employee to dispense stock inhalers to any child in respiratory distress. A stock inhaler is one that is not prescribed to a specific child and can be used by any child at the school.

Dr. Gerald consults on enacting or updating similar laws in other states. Seventeen states have adopted such measures, up from seven since Arizona passed its version. She most recently testified in Texas and Maryland, and counts Utah and Illinois among recent successes. For this, she was recognized in February as presenter of the 2022 Robert F. Lemanske, Jr, MD, FAAAAI Lectureship at the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (AAAI) annual conference, as well as with the UArizona Distinguished Outreach Faculty Award last year.

What interests her about asthma, she said, is that so many treatments work well but getting people to take those medications daily is a heavy lift. So, too, is getting them to avoid activities or situations that act as triggers. And many sufferers don’t always keep inhalers available with them.

“One of the fun things about stock inhalers for me is that I was the band booster president for my son's high school band at Catalina Foothills. He’s now a music ed major at ASU. But we had the largest band in the state with about 200 kids,” Dr. Gerald said. “And, so, of course, 10% of them were going to have asthma. And every time we had a practice or a performance, I was in charge of medications. There would be five kids having an asthma exacerbation and nobody had their inhaler,” so the stock inhaler legislation allowed her to provide one.

A Birmingham, Ala., native, she began researching asthma as a junior faculty member at UAB under Bill Bailey, MD, founder of the Lung Health Center, and one of the first researchers to receive NHLBI funding to study asthma in schools.

“I started helping on several of his studies and just fell in love with school-based asthma work. I realized how much there was to do, how different schools in my own town were for some kids than they were for me, and what a difference a school can make in kids’ health,” Dr. Gerald said.

Sabbatical goals

For her sabbatical, she plans on reading, taking online courses and traveling to learn the latest about “implementation research.” First, though, she’ll celebrate her 32nd wedding anniversary – also this July – with Joe Gerald, MD, PhD. A colleague at the Zuckerman College of Public Health, he was the chief compiler of the weekly Arizona COVID-19 forecast data used to guide decision-makers statewide. He is a frequent co-author with her on published papers.

Implementation research, Dr. Lynn Gerald said, involves study of methods to promote systematic uptake of proven clinical treatments, practices, organizational and management interventions into routine practice to improve health. That includes ways to encourage greater asthma inhaler use adherence.

“That’s really what I’ve done my entire life, trying to get interventions to work in a community setting outside of a clinical trial. But the methodology and things about how to do implementation science have changed a lot, so I’m going to be looking into that,” she said.

Dr. Gerald also will continue work with her own ongoing research projects, including one funded by a small grant from the Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center at UArizona to develop a box fan filter prototype for use on the Navajo Nation to reduce air particulate from wood cook stoves in common use in rural areas. Partners include the University of California, Berkeley, and Navajo Technical University in Crownpoint, N.M., which will produce the filters.

“You just take the box fan, put a filter on it and you get a very inexpensive solution. It looks like this can reduce indoor air pollution from cook stoves by about 90%. This is a huge issue for Navajo kids and adults with respiratory problems. For many years, people have been trying to improve that situation, including stove exchange programs to put in newer, cleaner and more efficient ones,” Dr. Gerald said.

“What’s cool about this is it’s cheap. It’s developed and produced locally. And people can use their stoves the way they’ve always used them. Our long-term goal is to win a larger grant to see if we can further reduce the indoor air contamination to improve asthma outcomes for kids and adults there.”
