Complaints About Renting Mobile Moving Storage Container


The concept of having a Moving Storage Container dropped off at your home is said to be a smart and innovating way to move your home. 

You get to load and unload your moving storage container on your time.  Once you fill your container you call the rental company and they will pick it up. The moving storage container company will then take it to your new address or store it. 

We have researched and read many reviews from customers who have used Mobile Storage Containers.  We took the top 5 customer complaints by reviews and came up with the following list you should keep in mind when ordering this service.
