5 Things to Consider about Atlanta Storage Facilities When Moving

Here at Storage World we know all too well that everyone has their own specific needs and requirements when storing their things during a move. With factors like container size, mobile storage services, and storage site locations to consider, it can be tricky to work out exactly what you need. Here are 5 things you may want to consider:

  1. 1. Rental Length

    If your new property is available, using our mobile storage service will make things all the more convenient for you. We deliver our portable moving containers to you and then move them onto your new home, so you won’t need to rent a van or hire a moving company. If your new property isn’t available yet, we can either leave the container with you for as long as you want, or store it at one of our safe locations for as long as you need.

  2. 2. Container Location

    If you go with the latter, you’ll need to choose an appropriate location for your container. We have three separate Atlanta storage facilities, so picking the one that is closest to you will make things a lot easier, especially if you want to access your container at any point. Obviously, if you’re going to keep your things in storage for a long period, having easy access to them will become more important.

  3. 3. Container Size

    You can hire as many containers as you need, but ideally you’ll want to get the best rates possible, right? Well, it’s important for you to really think about how much space you need in that case. We offer containers that vary from small 25 square feet units, up to much larger ones that get up to 300 square feet. As you’d expect, prices go up the larger the containers get, so carefully thinking about your needs will help you get the best value for money. To make things easy, we have a handy space calculator that you can use to help you decide how much space you need.

  4. 4. Supplies

    To store your things as safely as possible, it’s a good idea to use boxes, bubble wrap, packing paper and other supplies to pack things up securely. The last thing you want is to unpack your things when you move to find all of your finest china smashed and broken. If you don’t already have these supplies, we can help you out here as well.

  5. 5. Safety and Security

    It is important that your things are safe when being put into storage. Our mobile storage service guarantees this with our patented horizontal lift, as well as all of the security features we have at our storage sites. As a result, you’ll never have to worry that your valuable possessions are at risk.

The above considerations are important, so go ahead and think about exactly what you need before using any storage solution you come across. Hopefully, you’ll find that our services fit your requirements. Get a no obilgation quote today for a container to fit your needs.

How Portable Storage Helped My Business to Grow

I have to say, life is good at the moment.  My business is currently going from strength to strength, and it is all thanks to portable storage in Atlanta.

I sell computers and various peripherals, and as any business-owner knows, there are amazing discounts to be taken advantage of when buying stock in high volumes.  My business premises are extremely limited, and I was struggling to get into my office because of the sheer volume of stock I had in storage.  I was considering a very expensive move to new premises when I was told by a friend to consider self-storage.  I am so glad I decided to act on my friend’s advice, as I saved a small fortune on rent, and my business has grown very quickly as a result.

Things to Consider When Renting a Portable Storage Unit in Atlanta

Are you on a tight budget? Because traditional self storage in Atlanta can be costly – plus, it means that your belongings are not always easily accessible. With this in mind, a lot of people choose to rent portable storage units which allow them more freedom and convenience — a huge breath of fresh air when looking for portable storage . Such storage facilities are placed on your property and solve even the most difficult of your storage needs. And if this sounds even a little bit tempting, you will find services going at competitive prices, with the possibility of shipment wherever you may be located.

Goods Safety

One of the most important advantages of our portable storage units for rent in Atlanta is the pure, guaranteed safety of your stuff. Your goods will be stored exactly as you packed them, while you can rest assured that absolutely nothing will happen to them — sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? When your portable unit is transferred to another place, it is moved through a flat hydraulic lift which is particularly strong but extremely safe. This means that it is powerful enough for transferring something as heavy as a car, and gentle enough to keep even your most fragile belongings free from damage!

The business you choose to commit to should allow you to determine any specific storage dates, pick-up times, or delivery arrangements. At the same time, you should know that you can store some of your things on one date and some on a different one -or store all your belongings temporarily.

Self Storage Georgia: Dos and Donts

You know what they say: once you pack up and wrap up your stuff to store it, it’s a pain to have to do it again. Before you pack, here are some DOs and DONTs to think about before you transfer your belongings into storage.



Stack your furniture to save yourself space. Don’t worry, a big couch is strong enough to hold a couple love seats. Make sure to wrap your furniture in blankets or moving pads: two leather sofas smushed together for a while does nothing good for the leather.


Wrap your furniture in plastic or newspaper! Plastic holds moisture in and can unexpectedly ruin a perfectly beautiful wooden table. Newspaper ink can rub off onto fabric or wood.

Storage World’s Patented Lift Portable Storage Solutions

The Storage World facility located in the Atlanta, Georgia area is a unique storage facility unlike any other. Not only are your precious belongings stored locally, but they are also packed with TLC. Whether you’re storing cars or crystal stemware, our unique storage lift guarantees that your items will remain intact, just as they were when you packed them.  This technology is still new, but it has already solved one of the biggest problems in the storage/moving industry today and that is minimizing the damage of goods. How many times have you carefully packed your items just to retrieve them crushed and broken? Up until now there was no real way to prevent this from occurring–but now there is.

What is a Lift?

Back in the days movers had to physically lift your boxes or drive your car into the storage truck or pod (as you might have hear of); however, many things have changed since those days. For one, most storage facilities use lifts now. Lift technology allows your goods to be moved from the ground level into the moving truck without human assistance.  The lift is normally attached to the truck bed, similar to a tow truck bed. It then moves the items up onto the bed by pulling them up a slopped lift. This type of lift is useful for moving certain items, but it proves disastrous for others.


What Makes Our Lifts Different?

By now you are probably wondering what makes our technology so different from what’s already out there as portable storage solutions.  Most lifts move items or storage containers into a moving truck diagonally (up a slope). The problem with this is that items in the  portable storage container can move around in the box, which spells disaster for fragile items. Our lifts use hydraulic technology that works in a similar way to hydraulic elevators. The lift comes out from the bed of the truck and slides under the storage pod. It then gently lifts the pod from the ground vertically. This prevents your items from sliding down the lift (which often happens with sloped lifts). The hydraulic lift also ensures that everything stays intact. In fact, our lifts are so gentle that even a set table would stay in place without the glasses falling over.


Store with Us

Local storage is a major plus in Atlanta where storage is often done off-location. However, Storage World ensures that you can store locally and access your belongings anytime. Our facility is always fully staffed and you can bet that your goods are stored under state of the art security. We can move your belongings using out storage on wheels trucks along with our new patent hydraulic lifts, getting all your items onto the truck in one clean sweep without any risk of damage.


Determining the right size storage unit you need in Atlanta

Do you have clutter in your premises or place or work? Are you planning to move? Are you refurbishing your house and you need to move a couple of things to complete the project? If your answer is ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, then you definitely need some storage space. Storage space is a requisite for many individuals but unfortunately, in most instances, it doesn’t come cheap. You always have to rent some extra space if you want to store something.
