Wondering how Boxwell’s portable storage and relocatable units can increase revenue at your self-storage facility? Well, you probably have more rentable area than you’re currently using.

Look around your facility. Do you have any of the following?
1) an irregular shaped lot
2) poor configuration of existing structures
3) any unused areas due to easements or setbacks, uneven ground or required setbacks?


It’s easy to fill up your unused space and increase revenue with Boxwell’s portable storage and relocatable units. These containers are called a variety of names — from moveable and mobile to relocatable, drive-up and portable. At the end of the day, each of our “Boxwells” is customizable, easy to install, flexible, secure, durable, and delivered fast by our dedicated team!
Plus, did you know that Boxwells cost per less per square foot than permanent self-storage units? They are moveable, so they don’t demand the added time and expense of building approvals and permits required for permanent construction. There’s also a tax benefit to using portables versus permanent structures at a self-storage facility. Designed to boost the economy and help small and medium-sized businesses, Section 179 allows the write off of an entire price of qualifying equipment (think: relocatable storage) in the year of purchase. 
To help you select the best manufacturer of portable storage containers and relocatable self-storage units, Boxwell is here to help with a few simple tips to keep in mind. There are 7 key features to look for when shopping for storage that will help you increase revenue at your facility:

1. Customizable to Match Your Business

At Boxwell, our design team works hand-in-hand with each customer to determine every aspect of the container itself. We offer a customizable product that fits your company’s colors, branding options and container specifications.  

2. Easy to Install

We ship Boxwell units flat-packed and assemble them in under 30 minutes with a team of two workers. You can place our durable, moveable containers on practically any surface with built-in forklift pockets for safe and easy moving. 

3. Flexibility to Fit Anywhere

A typical portable storage unit is 8 x 20. This unit can be broken down into a number of different configurations including (2) 8×10 spaces, (4) 5×8 spaces or (8) 4×5 spaces. Based on the configuration, the unit is fit out with partitions and doors. Industry-leading rollup or swing doors are available in customizable colors to match your facility.

4. Secure from Elements

Boxwell’s containers are 100% weather resistant and rodent proof. The seamless design and corrugated roofs allow for optimal durability and water runoff. We offer coated floors for a waterproof, non-slip, non-toxic, non-flammable surface. To reduce condensation caused by humidity and temperature swings, we apply this thin, white coating on the ceiling. Plus, our state-of-the-art locking mechanism is ultra secure and easy to use.

5. Durable Construction 

Boxwell’s containers are some of the longest-lasting containers on the market. They are laboratory tested for long-term durability with the highest-grade steel (SPA-H and SPA-C), which allows our units to be movable and stackable (up to 3 high) when fully loaded. Our hardware is stainless steel and will maintain appearance and performance for years to come.

6. Quick Turnaround

The Boxwell team prides itself on speedy responses and a clean quote process so you can get the storage you need. With our very own manufacturing facility, we are in control of the getting units to you, fast — currently the typical timeframe from ordering to installation on-site runs from 10-12 weeks.
