Here at MI-BOX, we offer two types of storage unit rental. We offer outdoor yard storage for the container or indoor temperature-controlled storage for the container. Outdoor’s more for the short term customers who are going to be in and out. Indoor temperature-controlled storage is great for people who have antique wood furniture, high-end electronics, high-end artwork, etc.
When we put MI-BOX Calgary storage units down, we want to make sure your driveway or parking space does not get scratched or damaged in any way.
As you can see this particular moving and storage unit has what we call a roll-up door.
The roll-up doors are nice because they don’t take up a lot of space. Some customers on these particular units have a little bit of trouble opening and closing the door. It’s a real simple process.
You want to step on the handle, slide the latch over, roll the door up, and then do the same thing when you close it. You want to pull the door down, step on the handle, and slide the latch over.
These containers can carry about 8 000 pounds worth of freight. They have a tear weight of about 2 200 pounds. Usually about a total capacity of about 10 200 pounds.
Our competitors usually have an overall weight of about 15 000 pounds. Ours are lighter, easier, and safer to put on your driveway.
We want to make sure that every MIBOX that you’re putting your valuable possessions in is nice and clean.
As you can see, we always deliver these things clean and disinfected and ready to use. We have a row of D-rings on the bottom of the container and steel rings on the top.
These particular things function is to be able to move stuff into the container and attach tie-downs to them to be able to hold your stuff in place so it won’t get damaged in the transportation process.
We sell these high-security disk locks to help keep your stuff safe when they’re on your property.
As you can see when it’s attached it keeps the u-part of the lock nice and encased so nobody can come around try and get in here with a set of bolt cutters.
