We move shipping containers conveniently and affordably, so you can take advantage of these whenever you need to. We can move most storage containers, 20′ containers, 40′ containers, even PODS. When you’re ready to move an empty container, how are you going to do it? Storage 2U offers help with your portable storage needs.
Because shipping containers hold a lot of stuff, they make an excellent option to store things during big projects or simply for extra space. Often used in business and construction projects, our shipping containers are 40 feet long.
Introducing The Mule: Moving Shipping Containers Without a Forklift
Thanks to The Mule, Storage 2U can make the impossible, possible. Typically, moving 40′ shipping containers requires a forklift or other heavy machinery to lift the container on to a tractor-trailer, truck it to the new location, then unload it. This is where Storage 2U is different. Our signature moving system, The Mule, is a specialty remote-control lift system that allows us to quickly and easily move your shipping container somewhere else on your property, without a forklift or other heavy machinery. If you are using a shipping container for your project, and find that it’s simply in the way, we can easily put it exactly where you want it.
What is The Mule?
The Mule is a remote-controlled lift that can lift that relocate even the largest of storage containers quickly and safely. Using state-of-the-art transportation technology, Storage 2U can move 40’ shipping containers just about anywhere!
The process of moving shipping containers is time consuming, and costly, especially if you don’t have the right equipment on hand. Because of this, you need the services of a shipping container moving company. However, many companies aren’t willing to handle on-property moves because the process is simply too difficult. If they are willing, they charge a high premium for the task. Storage 2U eliminates the hassles and high costs of relocating shipping containers!
How Much Does It Cost to Move a Shipping Container?
The cost for moving a shipping container starts at $200.
We rent the 40′ containers for $149/month.
40’ containers can be moved into virtually any space that can fit 40’L x 8′ W x 9′ H by using our Mule delivery system.
The cost to move a shipping container depends on two factors: the distance you plan to move and the size of the container. If you are just moving across town, then you will pay less than if you are moving to another region of Central Oregon. If you just need to move on your site, then it will cost even less. The cost for the move includes the cost to load the container onto a truck, transport it to the new location, and put it in its new spot.
Cost of Shipping Container Sizes
Full-size 40-foot containers are a different story. These containers weigh 10,000 pounds empty, and will weigh significantly more when packed full. Most companies do not have the equipment to move 40-foot containers, because they often are too heavy for a tilt-bed truck. Storage 2U is equipped to move these, but the heavier weight means they will cost a little more to move. The size of your shipping container will dictate how much work is needed to transport it, and thus will affect its cost. See our pricing page for more information.
