Moving Containers: What Are They &
How Much Do Containers Costs?

But what comes with these moving containers is what makes them so special.

3. You can send to storage with minimal headache. . You don’t have to unload and move everything into a storage facility if you’re short on room. Someone will pick up your container and store it as-is. Get it back when you’re ready to unpack and everything will be just as you left it.

The 3 factors that determine a moving container cost


Size. You can get a 7-foot, 12-foot, or 16-foot container. Of course, the bigger the container, the more expensive it is.
Driving distance. How far does the container loaded on the truck have to drive? More mileage means more gas and labor costs, which means a higher price for you.
Usage time. Most homeowners will use their container for just a month or two max. Sometimes, you can lock in better rates if you plan to use it for an extended period of time.
Storage (optional). If you need your container stored at a real facility, that transit and time will cost you money. Like we said, overall, moving containers aren’t necessarily cheap. But they are extremely convenient.
