How You’ll Use Your 8-Foot Storage Container with Our Moving Trucks

Unlike your standard self-storage unit or a portable storage container company, our 8-foot storage container can be utilized within multiple configurations on our moving trucks. Each time that you schedule a pickup with us for your storage unit, it will be loaded onto a moving truck and cleaned before your use. Check out the video below for more details.

Moving Truck and Portable Storage Container Configurations

Depending on how many storage units that you rent from Red Rover, you can apply different configurations to satisfy your access needs. For instance, with the 8-foot storage unit, you can face the door toward the back of the truck for traditional walk-in access, or you can have the door face the side. Deals are available for multiple unit rentals. Check your nearest Red Rover Storage Center Location for details.
