Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How big are the containers?

The containers measure 8′ x 7′ 1/2″ x 10′, 8′ x 7′ 1/2″ x 15′, and 8′ x 8′ 16′. The 8′ x 10′ container will typically accommodate two average rooms, and the 8′ x 16′ approximately four rooms of household goods; the 8′ x 15′ a little less. The containers sit about 4 inches off the ground to insure that your belongings remain safe and dry.

Q: How do I know how many containers I will need?
Mobile On the Spot Storage can assist you in estimating the number of containers you will need, just ask.

Q. How many days in advance do I need to schedule a container delivery?
We can usually get a container out to you within 2 to 3 days of your call, and in some cases we can deliver on the same day. If you have a specific date and time you desire delivery, the earlier you call to schedule the better.

Q: Where on my property will you put the containers?
A container will fit anywhere a car can be parked, and most anywhere on your private property that you would like. You tell us the most convenient location for loading and we’ll do our best to accommodate your request. Though your own property is always best, we may be able to assist you in obtaining a permit should you need to situate a storage container on public property.

Q: How long do I have to load my containers?
One of the best things about Mobile On the Spot Storage is your ability to pack and load what you want, when you want, in order to have maximum control over your move. Our customers have up to 30 days to load and unload their containers with no additional charge. Need even more time? No problem! You can keep the containers even longer for an additional charge.

Q: What if I need help loading the container?
Mobile On the Spot Storage can arrange movers for you at a reduced fee; just let us know and we’ll draw up a quote for you.

Q: Will my belongings be secure in the containers while on my property?
Absolutely! Each container door is constructed to latch tightly closed, and the latch has a place for you to put your own lock.

Q: How do I keep items from shifting during transit?
Pack heavy items on bottom and lighter items on top, and as much as possible use the appropriate box, packing materials and moving blankets for the items you’re packing. Fill in as much empty space as you can – remember, towels, bedding, pillows, clothing, etc. are excellent for filling open spaces and adding additional cushioning to your more fragile belongings. Packing your containers is similar to, but much easier than, loading a moving truck, because you’re only 4″ from the ground so there are no slippery ramps to navigate.

Q: How much will this cost?
Since we offer as many storage containers in whatever size you require, for as long as your require them, the price is dependent on your specific needs. Rest assured our prices are competitive and it’s easy to receive a quote: just call us at 1-800-80-SPOTS.

Q: How does payment work?
Your credit card will be charged before the unit arrives at your location.

Q: How is Mobile On the Spot Storage different from traditional public mini-storage?
The main difference is the ease of loading one time, at your own location and on your own schedule. In addition, because our containers are ventilated and breathable, you will not have the mold and mildew concerns associated with traditional storage. Once your belongings leave your property, they are stored in our large climate-controlled indoor facility, the perfect environment for keeping your valuables secure and in prime condition.

Q: What if I need to get something from storage?
Not a problem, simply give us a call and we’ll arrange access for you. Because we take security seriously at the facility, however, we ask for 24-hour telephone notice in arranging a visit of your storage containers.

Q. Are you insured?
We are fully insured; however, since we do not know the contents of your storage container and cannot accurately determine its value, we cannot insure any loss due to damaged goods. Your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance may already covers your goods, but if not you may wish to obtain additional insurance as stated in our contract. You can obtain additional insurance at movinginsurance.com.
