Moving to a new home? Discover the advantages of using MI-BOX portable storage units for your move and make your transition easier and more efficient.

Moving to a new home can be both exciting and stressful at the same time. There are a lot of things to consider such as packing, hiring movers, and finding a temporary storage facility

However, with portable storage units, your move in Calgary can be easier and quicker. In this blog post, we will discuss the several benefits of using portable storage containers for your big day! 


With mobile storage, you don’t have to worry about picking up and dropping off a giant and awkward moving truck rental, to then drive back and forth to a storage facility. The container will be delivered and leveled for a perfect step in height directly onto your driveway days weeks or even months before the move. You also have 24-hour access, so all you have to do is load your belongings at your convenience. 

Our storage units come in 3 convenient sizes for you to choose from or even mix and match. 

Small: 8’ x 7.5’ x 7.5’

Medium: 16’ x 7.5’ x 7.5’ 

Large: 20’ x 7.5’ x 7.5’

No matter how big or small the job, MI-BOX has you covered. 


Unlike traditional moving trucks, you don’t have to worry about returning the portable storage unit immediately. You have the flexibility to pack and load your belongings at your own pace without any time restraints. Just let us know how long you want the mobile container for and where to take it next. 

If you have nowhere to store your container, we can take it to our clean and secure storage facility until you’re ready for it. 


Portable storage units are built with strong galvanized steel protecting your belongings from the unpredictable and harsh Calgary elements. Our tough self storage units are also theft resistant, keeping sneaky thieves at bay. 

This added security can give you peace of mind knowing that your belongings are safe and sound while loading and during the move. 


Renting a storage unit can be more cost-effective than renting a moving truck and paying for hourly rates, insurance, damages not covered by insurance, late fees and storage fees. With portable storage units, you can have all your belongings in one place, eliminating the need to pay for multiple bills. 


Mobile storage units are not only useful for moving, but also for home renovation and storage for seasonal items. You can use them to store your holiday decorations or excess furniture during the offseason.

Using a portable storage unit for your move in Calgary can provide you with a convenient, flexible, secure, and cost-effective solution.
