Choosing a Storage Container: Which One Is For Me?

All storage situation have different storage needs – Moon knows that. In fact, that’s exactly why there’s an option for 20 foot standard, 40 foot standard, 20 foot Hi Cube, and 40 foot Hi Cube storage containers available.

All of our storage containers boast:

  • A highly-monitored structure to maintain integrity and safety
  • Double swing doors at both ends of the container
  • Short or long term rental
  • Location accessibility evaluation
  • Secure lock boxes
  • ISO-Standards for cleanliness, dryness, and security

But which one would be better for your storage needs?

Here’s a few things to consider when making your decision on storage container size.

Use

While it may be one of the more obvious considerations, it’s still a very important one. What will it be used for? Is it workshop storage? Commercial storage? Parts, pieces, delicates, size – it all contributes to the ultimate decision.

If it’s commercial use that the storage container will be used for, ask yourself if the contents will grow. Spare parts and pieces always seem to have a way of multiplying, and if your business if one that finds yourself with an excess of materials that need to be put somewhere, consider opting for a 40 foot container for future materials.

If your storage container will be put towards personal or residential use – for short term storage of items while you deep clean in preparation for a move, or for long term use of seasonal items, make sure you correctly measure how much material you have. Our dimensions allow for plenty of space for most items, but some pieces of furniture may require disassembly if they’re to be put with other big items or bulk boxes.

We also offer a refrigerated option for both 20 and 40 foot containers, with the only difference that the 20 foot is a standard container and the 40 foot is a Hi Cube container. Be sure to take into account that these units offer approximately 2 feet less than the space you would get with an regular container – 17′ 11″ for the 20 foot container and 37′ 11″ for the 40 foot containers – in order to take into consideration the space necessary for the refrigeration equipment.

Dimensions

To avoid any stress about sizes and space, our storage containers have a comprehensive list of dimensions, as listed below.

Dimensions of 20 or 40 foot storage containers

Standard or Hi Cube?

Besides just a 20 and 40 foot size option, Moon also offers the Hi Cube option for both lengths. These containers add an additional foot of height to your storage solution, making any tight spaces just a little easier to breathe in.

Standard containers come in approximate weights of 8,000 lbs. with a 2,694 cubic foot storage capacity for the 40 foot, and 5,000 lbs. with a 1,665 cubic foot capacity for the 20 foot storage container.

This may be changed by negligible amounts from standard to Hi Cube storage containers, but depending on your need, one foot may make all the difference, especially if your contents are fragile and you want some wiggle room.

Space Availability

Speaking of wiggle room, another factor you’ll have to consider is the space you have available for a storage container. These can be delivered and placed on ground level or on a chassis for dock-level access – again, it’s all very dependent on the application your storage container will be serving.

Moon offers a delivery location accessibility evaluation, so that you don’t have to worry, but if you’re in the initial stages of decision-making, our delivery methods for 20 foot storage containers are via a 35 foot flatbed roll-back truck, and our 40 foot storage containers are via a semi-truck with a 40 foot tilt-bed trailer.

Be sure to assure plenty of space for delivery, and call 502-776-2199 for a delivery location accessibility evaluation!
