15ft Portable Storage Containers

At Mobile Mini, we love all of our portable storage units, but there’s just something special about our 15ft storage containers. These beasts are built to perform and designed to last, giving you the space you need and the quality you deserve. 

But what is a 15ft shipping container, and what sets it apart from other units? Let’s get to it. 


Portable Storage Needs:

  • High value inventory
  • Seasonal supplies
  • Small equipment
  • Record boxes
  • Landscaping tools
  • Janitorial equipment


What Is a 15ft Container?

We’ll begin with the name. When we refer to a 15ft container, a 15ft storage container, or a 15ft shipping container, we’re referring to the same thing. They’re repurposed steel shipping containers designed to store commercial goods. These containers come empty and with a streamlined design, you don’t lose space on corners or indented walls. They give you approximately 140 sq.ft. of uninterrupted storage space. 

Why Choose a 15ft Shipping Container? Uses and More

There are standard-width storage units (which are great) and then there are our 15ft shipping containers. These units have internal dimensions of 7’ 8-1/2" W x 14’ 10-1/2" L x 7’ 10-1/4" H and external measurements of 8’ W x 15’ L x 8’ 6" H, which means that you get a ton of storage space in a container that fits into most parking spaces. 

But what can you possibly use a 15ft storage container for? A whole lot! These containers are designed to house commercial items like:

  • High-value inventory
  • Seasonal supplies
  • Small commercial equipment
  • Landscaping tools
  • Janitorial equipment
  • Records and documents

While our commercial customers span a wide range of industries, the most common uses for these units are:

  • Retail Storage: Many of our retail customers use their 15ft storage containers to house seasonal or unused inventory, clearing their salesfloor for customers and active items. Since these containers fit into a standard parking spot, they can keep their units right outside of their store, increasing available indoor space, keeping their items safe and secure, and giving employees a quiet place to sort through and track products. 
  • Hospitality Storage: Restaurants and hotels love our 15ft shipping containers and use them to store unused equipment and more seasonal items, freeing up space in a kitchen or lobby. 
  • Construction StorageOur construction clients use their 15 ft containers to house unused equipment, supplies, and other items that are vulnerable to weather or theft. Since these containers are made from steel, they are strong enough to withstand the intensity of a construction site, and they are instrumental in keeping projects moving along without unnecessary breaks for weather-damaged supplies or lost/stolen equipment. 

These are just a few examples of where our most common customers come from, but this list is in no way all-encompassing. No matter what industry you work in, if you have items to store, then our 15 ft containers are for you.

Benefits of a 15ft Shipping Container

Some of the primary benefits of these units are:

  • They’re Weather-Proof: Our 15 ft containers are all made from 100% corrugated steel, which means that they are constructed from one of the strongest metals on earth, Corrugated steel is naturally weather-proof, so your supplies will stay safe and dry through rain, wind, sleet, snow, and any other natural disasters that Mother Nature throws at you. 
  • They’re Portable: Our 15ft storage containers are made from shipping containers, and are designed to move without any risk to structural integrity or design. Our units can be used across multiple jobsites and are relatively easy to transport as often as needed.
  • They’re Affordable: Product loss, damage, and theft costs businesses billions of dollars each year. At Mobile Mini, our storage containers cost less than a cup of coffee per day, which means you get top-ranked storage and protection for less than the cost of a pumpkin spice whatever it's called.
