Reasons to use PackRat Portable Storage

The latest trend in moving and storage these days is portable storage. The fastest growing company in this market is 1-800-Pack-Rat, LLC. They attribute its rapid growth to customers’ interest in “finding simple, flexible solutions to stressful life events such as moving, buying and selling a home, downsizing, and renovating.”

In 2001, a North Carolina entrepreneur was determined to come up with an idea to make storage simple and easy. With his sketch of a portable weatherproof container and the help of one of the best heavy equipment manufacturers in the country, Pack Rat was born.

The idea that revolutionized the storage industry is a steel container that can be lifted and moved, with up to 8,500 pounds inside, without rocking or moving. Customers can pack just about anything in this container, so the name PackRat was ideal. With the ability to easily move the unit, storage became portable creating an innovative way to move or store your stuff.

1-800-Pack-Rat has taken the stress and hassle out of moving day. The movers are usually scheduled to arrive at a certain time in the morning. Inevitably, customers are rarely ready for your arrival: they stay up late at night before feverishly trying to complete the packing. Even if you’re moving yourself, there’s a rush to pick up the rental truck at 8am when the store opens and then it’s on the clock; hefty fees may apply if you exceed the reserved time.

With 1-800-Pack-Rat, there’s no rush; in fact, you don’t even need to leave your house. Customers simply call to schedule delivery of their storage unit. It can be loaded at your convenience. Some even go so far as to pack one room at a time. There is no rush to pack the whole house in one day. Once your unit is charged, it can be moved to its new location or stored in PackRat’s secure, climate-controlled warehouses.

Pack Rat is also perfect for renovations or remodels. Just have them deliver a 1-800-Pack-Rat to you and temporarily store the items in that room out of the way. Don’t worry about renting a moving truck and storage unit, just walk up to the Pack Rat on your property and voila!

When storing your belongings, loading the truck is only half the job. After that, there’s the hassle of driving to the storage drive and downloading all your stuff again. With Pack Rat, once you load it, you’re done. His storage module is loaded onto a moving truck and then becomes the storage unit.

Besides the obvious convenience of not having to rent a moving truck and storage unit, there are other benefits that can be overlooked. Do you remember the truck ramp? The storage units are at ground level, so you no longer have to walk up and down with those heavy items. Plus, moving trucks is not only a headache, you also have to pay for mileage and gas.

It’s easy to see how 1-800-Pack-Rat’s state-of-the-art system has revolutionized moving and storage. After knowing how much simpler moving day can be, why bother with the hassle of renting a truck or storage unit? Even if you’re not one to do the work yourself, Pack Rat also offers loading and unloading services.
