And if you’re like many people in the U.S., you’re looking to get in on the action. But how do you know if starting a portable storage business is for you? And what are the costs associated with starting a portable storage delivery business? Keep reading to find out!
The Cost of Starting a Portable Storage Delivery Business
When someone is initially considering opening a business, the cost is usually the biggest deterrent. But, did you know that starting a portable storage business is actually cheaper than starting a self storage business? Many people may assume the opposite, but it’s true. When you start a self storage business, you have to immediately dish out the money for buying a warehouse and converting it into a storage facility. Or if you’re planning to buy an already established storage facility from the owner, then the costs can be far greater.
When you go the mobile storage route, the initial costs are far less substantial. In order to start a portable storage business, you need to purchase a container lift system, storage containers and a parking lot or area to store them. If you already own a self storage business and are just looking to expand, then you already have the land for mobile storage. The beauty of portable storage is your storage container inventory can grow with your business. If you don’t initially have the money to purchase an arsenal of mobile storage containers, you can purchase more as the need increases.
