We offer the following sizes of moving containers!

Southwest Mobile Storage will deliver a steel, portable moving and storage container to your home. Unlike a wooden or fiberglass crate, your contents will remain secure in our steel storage containers. With steel shipping container moving you may either store the container at your property, or load it and have us pick it up to store at one of our high security storage sites. Once your new home or remodel is ready, we will re-deliver the container. You may keep the container at your site for as long as you need to. Our containers come in 4 sizes (10 ft., 15 ft. 20 ft. and 24 ft.) and each container includes a standard lock box and high security slide-bolt locking system. Transportation may be arranged with a 24 to 48 hour notice.
