    Why use shipping container moving for storage?

    Shipping Containers were built to be shipped overseas, this means that they must be built to withstand everything that mother nature can throw at them. Which is especially important on the high-seas where winds and cold can be extremely harsh.

    Shipping containers are durable enough to stand up to the elements. They’re water-resistant, don’t hold in humidity, and they’re solid steel, two inches thick, so you can be assured that whatever you are storing is safe and secure.

    But what makes shipping containers ideal for storage, which makes them better than all other methods of storing your equipment and tools, is their mobility. Storage containers are easy to move, and our sidelifting company is the best company for your container moving job.

    Why stack your containers?

    In San Francisco, space is always at a premium. If you have a large number of containers on your lot, one way to reclaim your space is to stack your containers. Best Sidelifter can move your containers and stack them two-high.

    Conex boxes are used to transport and store large quantities of goods, supplies, tools, and equipment. When these items need to be stored long term, sometimes it’s best to stack them and save space. Warehouse or lot space always seems to fill up faster than you would think it would, and it’s amazing how just stacking your containers will free up so much room to work.
