When most people think of moving they often worry about the tedious task of packing and unpacking the entire house.

Buy or rent

After moving, you can repurpose the container into a garden shed if you have enough room in your back yard.  Renting is a great option for temporary use, especially when relocating to a more permanent location.

Convenience

Moving using rental containers is quite convenient. The dimensions of the storage unit make it easy to stack up a variety of household furniture, appliances, cartons and suitcases. If you do strategically, you would be surprised with the number of items you can fit into the containers. The container can be hauled away by a truck or trailer to your new home.

Another reason why the container is such as convenient option is you can load it up at your own pace so you can get everything well organized and stacked up. Unlike a moving truck, the container can be left in your driveway for you to pack your items and collected later on by the trailer after you are done stacking.
