If you are considering using a mobile storage solution to hold your belongings, but aren’t sure if it will be big enough to hold everything you need – think again. While it may sound like a small thing, even mini mobile storage is large enough to hold a lot of stuff. In fact, the average size of a portable storage container in Fall River is eight feet by eight feet by twenty feet and we will share with you several examples of just how much one of those 20-foot containers can hold.
What Sizes Are Available?
In addition to the 20-foot long standard ground-level storage container, there are a couple of container size options to consider. Different options are available depending on whether you will be using the mini mobile storage unit for residential, commercial or construction use, but there are a lot of sizes available for each type of client.
- Standard Ground-Level Storage Containers – Available in 10, 20 and 40 feet
- Cube-Shaped Ground-Level Storage Containers – Available in 20 and 40 feet
- Trailer Dock-Height Storage Containers – Available in 28, 38 and 53 feet
Residential storage container users will typically stick with the standard and cube-shaped ground level container options, while construction or commercial storage container users can also opt for the trailer dock-height containers, which can be easily loaded, unloaded and stored in a dock-height setting at a warehouse or other similar type facility.
What Will Fit in a Mobile Storage Solution?
So we noted that the 20-foot long ground level storage container was the average size of the typical portable storage container used in Fall River. How much can you store in one of these average-sized containers? We have a small example that uses some common household, commercial and construction items, that just might help you determine whether or not a mini mobile storage container would work for your situation.
A standard 8x8x20 foot portable storage container in Fall River can hold:
- 12-ounce cans of soda – 1,512 cases or 36,288 cans
- 60-pound bags of cement – 1,021 bags
- 2 inch x 4 inch x 8 foot boards – 3,962 wooden boards
- copy paper – 7,816 reams (500 sheets each!) of paper
- gallon-size water jugs – 7,344 gallons of water
- 5-pound boxes of nails – 12,580 boxes of 2.5-inch nails
- chicken eggs – 486,792 eggs or 40,566 dozen
What Size Do I Need?
While chances are good that you won’t need to store over 40,000 dozen eggs or 1,500 cases of soda pop in your mini mobile storage, these figures at least give you some objects that you are familiar with that can help you fathom just how much space is available in a mobile storage solution. This can help you decide whether a portable storage container in Fall River would be the best solution for your particular needs.
When it comes to construction storage, knowing that you could safely store and protect nearly 4,000 boards for your project or over a thousand 60-pound bags of cement, can really be beneficial.
For business and commercial storage users, knowing that you could hold enough copy paper to run your office for years and years or enough gallon-jugs of water to supply your entire team for years as well can be encouraging.
Homeowners who are looking for residential storage options might not be able to picture boards, cement and reams of paper, but we know how much space a couple of dozen eggs can take up in our refrigerators or how much space a case of soda takes up in the trunk of our cars.
