FAQs about our container storage units

Do they keep my possessions dry? All that and more answered below.

Yes they are. Shipping containers are used to transport expensive goods all over the globe on the world’s oceans. They are designed to keep the elements out and keep what they’re transporting safe & dry.

The big rule with shipping containers is that if your items go in dry, they’ll come out dry.

Shipping containers do a fantastic job of keeping the elements out. Therefore the only way moisture can affect your things is if they is something that is wet that is enclosed in the seal of the shipping container.

Make sure your possessions are dry. And make sure rain doesn’t get into your container when you’re moving your possessions in and you’ll be fine.

The other thing to bare in mind is to make sure you pick a reputable storage company that has either brand new or well maintained shipping containers.
