Special Storage Solutions During COVID-19
Portable storage containers are large boxes similar to shipping containers (but much more attractive!), which are delivered to your home or business, so that you can store things at your own site, at your own pace.
Yes, we offer a full range of items for rent and purchase, to ensure a superior storage experience.
Portable storage offers a number of benefits compared to self-storage by eliminating
• the need to stick to a mover’s schedule
• the need to load up your vehicle (especially helpful for large furniture and appliances), and
• the burden of driving to and from your locker
With Blue Sky, you can keep your Unit at your own site, or have us store it at our facility indoors with climate control.
Blue Sky offers some unique and important benefits including:
• Competitive rates: we strive to provide you fair and transparent pricing, including some of the lowest transport costs in the industry
• The best containers on the market:
○ All steel construction for extreme durability
○ Vented with weather stripping for superior moisture control
○ Built in D-rings and posts for tying down your contents
○ Marine-grade non-slip plywood flooring
○ Hinged doors only, no annoying roll-ups
○ Many of our competitors use inferior containers with wood frames and plastic or fibreglass sides, roll up doors and OSB floors. With Blue Sky, you know your contents will be easily accessible, safe and secure.
• Superior delivery method: our “mule” keeps your unit and contents level while loading and unloading, so no damage will occur; it’s also very nimble and precise compared to our competitors, so it won’t chew up your lawn or garden bed
• Timely response: as a new business with a single location, we strive to provide better, faster and friendlier service than the bigger names in the industry
• Climate control: you have the option to store your unit indoors for added peace of mind
