Mobile Attic Portable Self Storage

Packing & Loading FAQs

Do you sell/rent storage supplies?

Yes, we have a variety of storage supplies to rent (blankets, straps, locks, hand trucks), ask one of our reps about supplies when renting. 

Do you have hand trucks and dollies available at your facility?

Yes, we do have hand trucks and furniture dollies at Mobile Attic, but availability is limited. Feel free to ask our staff for item availability at the time of rental.

Do I need to provide my own lock?

You can, but we also sell disc-pad locks ($12.99 + tax).

What size lock fits the container?

Most standard padlocks will fit our latches, but we also provide circular disc locks that can be purchased and delivered with your unit.

Are there any items that I am NOT able to store?

Liquids, Explosives, Flammable liquids, Toxic materials, and Perishables cannot be stored in Mobile Attic containers. Please contact us if you have any questions about a specific item. See our contract for a complete list.

Is there a weight limit?

The maximum weight limit for our containers are: 12’ Container = 4,700 lbs, 16’ Container = 4,200 lbs, and 20′ Container = 3700 lbs. Our STEEL Containers can hold up to 28 Tons of cargo, but cannot be moved when loaded. 
Customers do not have to calculate their content’s weight, so the weight limits should be used as a guideline when packing the container. If you’re concerned that you may be approaching the maximum weight, pick out your heaviest items and look for comparable items online. Most retail websites will list the weight of their items. The total weight of your heaviest items shouldn’t exceed 75% of the total allowed weight. Heavy items to consider are appliances, sofas, large entertainment centers, bookcases, bedroom chests, safes, exercise equipment, pianos and pool tables.
