Renting a Storage Unit vs. Buying a Portable Building



If you’re on the hunt for portable storage, you may want to consider investing in a portable building instead of rental storage containers. Find out why.


Why buy a portable building?

Storage units and portable buildings are both exceptionally convenient and economical storage options for storing equipment at a construction site. They are also great for temporary storage facilities, while your office or home is undergoing an improvement job. These units offer quick, easy and affordable storage solutions, not far from your home. There are multiple onsite storage benefits offered by portable buildings and other storage units, including taking care of your belongings when you’re traveling. Let’s take a look and compare the merits and demerits of both to find out which best suits your requirement.


Advantages of a Portable Building

Buying a portable building has several advantages, including versatility, affordability and quick official clearances. These buildings can offer you extra storage when required. They can also be used as garages, storage sheds, warehouses, studios and much more.

Renting a Storage Unit

Renting a storage unit comes with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. While it’s a great way to keep your valuables and equipment safe when you’re away, some companies may not offer a very competitive price and you may end up paying a lot, especially if you’re going to be away for a long time.

Since there’s a growing demand for rental storage units, you may not find one in your neighborhood immediately when you need it. This is why buying storage sheds is a great option. You can carry it along anywhere without having to worry about paying a fortune and panicking when they’re fully booked at the last minute.


Portable Cabins

Portable cabins, such as those made by Robb’s Portable Buildings, offer great versatility with economic, flexible and practical solutions for your storage needs. Portable cabins can be built in any shape, style and size you desire, and a an endless number of customization options are available.


Rent a Storage Unit or Buy a Portable Building?
