Storage Container Myths And Misconceptions

Updated: Feb 15, 2023

Storage containers are versatile and multifunctional spaces which can be transported with ease, and moved from A to B in a short period of time. Most often found within the transportation industry, as well as construction and maritime practices, there’s plenty to learn when it comes to these bulky cargo solutions. Continue reading and let the industry specialists at Manchester Cabins take you through all you need to know when it comes to storage containers - from the multitude of sizes and shapes to consider, to the truth behind stereotypes that cargo containers are unclean.

Storage Containers Aren’t Secure

Though you may view a cargo storage container as a somewhat flimsy structure, easy for a potential thief to wrench open with a crowbar, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Made of durable metal, these rectangular units are designed specifically to safely contain often-expensive items and goods, so we never compromise on security. In fact, the anti-vandal solutions we put in place include external corrugated steel walls, steel security shutters and tough padlocks as standard, making these sturdy containers a force to be reckoned with.

Containers Are Dirty And Not Maintained Well

The typical image of a dirty storage container perhaps stems from the widespread use of shipping containers within that industry, or the cramped and decrepit spaces often seen in media such as storage wars. As popular as this idea may be, at Manchester Cabins we take our maintenance seriously. When desired, you can expect regular maintenance, repairs and cleaning, while your chosen unit will never arrive for a hire period looking anything less than completely clean.

All Of Them Are The Same, Just Different Sizes

Though storage containers can be acquired in a number of sizes for differing commercial needs, we have specialist units available to fit circumstances. Service toilets (portable loos) may be most appropriate for festivals or construction sites, while we frequently organise hire for events companies. On the other hand, our welfare cabins are loved by catering companies throughout The North of England, with a surprising amount of space and utilities aplenty.
