What are Cargo Shipping Container Trailers?

Cargo Shipping Container Trailers 

When it comes to storage, you can’t beat the stability, affordability, and versatility of shipping container trailers. Once relegated to the world of shipping, these container trailers are finally being recognized as the storage champions they are. 

Made from corrugated steel, cargo shipping container trailers are some of the strongest storage units you can find; they will keep your commercial equipment, records, and whatever else you put inside safe and protected from almost anything nature can throw at them. 

While we don’t like to brag, Mobile Mini happens to be an expert in all things shipping container trailers. We have been involved in storage for decades, and we have acquired an impressive range of cargo storage containers. 

Not sold on the magic yet? No problem! We love a good challenge.

Why Shipping Container Trailers?

As their name indicates, shipping container trailers were initially used to transport cargo across some of the world’s most challenging waterways and terrain. They were good at that job because of their strength and ability to maintain their structure and integrity in any environment. 

Let’s put it another way: these containers are strong enough to carry items across continents, oceans, deserts, and forests. We are pretty sure if they can handle a wintery cross-country trek, they are more than equipped to keep your most valuable items safe year-round. 

And shipping container trailers aren’t just strong. They are also much more affordable than other storage units. Strong and affordable? We’re sold.

Shipping Container Trailer Uses

The list of uses our customers have found for our shipping container trailers is virtually endless. They love the utility and portability of our shipping container trailers, and their shape and size make it easy to customize these units to meet any storage needs that arise. 

These include:

  • Storing construction equipment, materials, and supplies overnight or when sites are unattended;
  • Storing unused or seasonal inventory for retail businesses;
  • Storing documents, records, and paperwork on active job sites and at office buildings, car dealerships, health clinics, and so on; 
  • Storing medical equipment and emergency supplies at hospitals, health clinics, and medical settings;
  • Storing sound equipment, lighting equipment, and tickets/merchandise at outdoor festivals and events;
  • Storing equipment and supplies at car dealerships and auto body locations. 

Our shipping container trailers can also be used as:

  • A staging area for outdoor festival tech;
  • A space to sort through and organize inventory;
  • A secure site to sort through and complete important documents and records.

One of the things we love most about these units is that they’re up for anything. Since all of our shipping container trailers are delivered empty, it’s easy to add things like blinds and shelves to make them more adaptable to your exact demands. 

Who Would Use a Shipping Container Trailer?

Shipping container trailers are like storage chameleons; they can meet almost any storage need that you throw at (or in) them. 

While we outlined some of the most common uses for our shipping container trailers above, the question then becomes, “Who are these shipping container trailers for?” Well, that’s any easy one: pretty much everyone. 

Mobile Mini is proud to serve over 20 industries, and our customers include businesses from the following sectors:

  • Arts and entertainment
  • Automotive 
  • Agriculture
  • Construction
  • Education 
  • Healthcare 
  • Hospitality 
  • Retail 

While this list is long, it’s by no means exhaustive. If you have a business and you need reliable storage, chances are our shipping container trailers are for you!

The Mobile Mini Difference 

When it comes to shipping container trailer rental, Mobile Mini is hard to beat. We have a wide range of shipping container trailer options that meet most commercial and residential storage needs. From standard and extra-wide to office/storage combinations, you would be hard-pressed to find a storage need that’s too big or too small for Mobile Mini.

Now let’s talk security. A shipping container trailer is only worth as much as the locks that you put on it. As much as you want to keep things like rain, snow, and ice out of these containers, you also want to keep your belongings firmly inside. That’s why Mobile Mini uses a patented tri-cam locking system that is virtually theft-proof; even drills can’t penetrate these locks. 

Last, but definitely not least, we also come out on top when it comes to service. Mobile Mini’s award-winning customer service team is standing by to guide your rental experience. From selecting your shipping container trailer to delivery, pickup, and technical support, when you rent with Mobile Mini, you get an entire team backing you every step of the way. 

Delivery, pickup, and relocation are all included in your order. Most containers are delivered within one business day, and when everything is said and done, we will take that empty container away for you, leaving your site as good as new. If you run into a location change mid-rental, no problem. Just give us a call; we will move your empty shipping container trailer wherever you need it. 

Containers you can trust, service you can depend on. That’s the Mobile Mini difference!
