Portable Storage Container Rental Prices:
(Delivery and Pick-up Charges Calculated by Zip Code at Checkout)
We offer steel storage container rentals throughout the United States and Canada (through our partner Northern Container Sales). Our conex container rentals are refurbished steel shipping containers painted a neutral color (like beige, grey or blue). We deliver in 2-5 business days from the date you place your order, and there's no contract beyond a 3-month minimum rental. Your initial payment will be delivery, pick-up and the first month's rent and we charge your credit card monthly on auto-pay. Unlike the other guys, there are no additional fees added on to our storage container rental rates and we bill on a true month (not 28 days).
Delivered by Professionals in 2-5 Business Days
Plan on 2-5 business days for your storage container rental to be delivered (we'll be in touch within 1 business day with your delivery date, and the driver will call when they're en route).
Shipping Calculated by Zip Code at Checkout
We'll calculate your shipping at checkout, based on your zip code. Please note that your initial payment will include delivery, pick-up, and the first month's rent (plus sales tax, if applicable)
3/mo. Minimum Rental, No Contracts Beyond That
Please note that our storage container rentals are three month minimum rental terms. There are no contracts beyond the third month, and rentals are month to month after the 3rd month.
Quality Storage Containers in Neutral Colors
Our steel storage containers are guaranteed not to leak, with doors that seal, and a secure lockbox. Steel storage container rentals are also painted a neutral color (like beige, grey, or dark blue).
No Additional Fees
Most of our competitors like to add in additional fees to your quoted rate, but with Western Container Sales the rate you see is the rate you'll pay (+ sales tax, where applicable). The only additional cost is your delivery and pick-up charge (calculated by your zip code at checkout).
Other companies add charges like:
- +14% for a loss waiver
- +5% for property fees
- +8.3%* for a 28-day "month"
*based on annualized cost of additional billing cycle
We Don't Add Additional Charges to Your Quoted Rental Rate
In the end, you can see over 27% of additional costs to your rental rate... making a $135 quoted rate actually equal over $171/month. We believe in transparent pricing, and that there shouldn't be any surprises when you see your invoice. We also believe a "month" is a month, and not 28 days, so we'll only bill you 12 times per year (and not 13, like some of the big guys do).

How Do Steel Storage Containers Compare to PODS?
The largest nationwide portable storage company is PODS (Portable On Demand Storage). While both PODS and Western Container Sales offer nationwide portable storage rentals, there are some key differences.
Primarily that PODS' containers are smaller, lighter units that are made from a combination of steel, fiberglass, aluminum and plastic, and designed to be moved while loaded. In contrast, our rentals are re-purposed used shipping containers
(all steel construction, with wood floors over steel cross members).Overall, steel shipping containers are a larger and heavy duty alternative to the standard PODS storage containers. PODS now offers a an all-steel 16 ft container.
While Western Container Sales offers steel storage containers in sizes up to 40' in length, PODS offers smaller, 8', 12' and 16' storage units with aluminum and plastic exteriors, in addition to a 16' all-steel container option. Steel shipping containers are difficult to load/unload without the heavy equipment found at ports and depots, but PODS units are small enough to be easily managed with light duty lifts. Western Container Sales does not move loaded units, so if you need your container moved after it's loaded PODS or similar companies might be a better option. However, if you need storage at your location we offer larger, all steel containers. Our cost per square foot is almost always lower, as well.
We only recommend buying a reefer container from a refrigerated container expert. However, we understand that some of our customers may need refrigerated or insulated shipping containers. That's why we teamed up with ITS ConGlobal, the largest intermodal services company in North America to help with ReeferContainerPros.com. Offering reefer container sales and rentals in Seattle, Portland, Oakland, Los Angeles, Houston, New Orleans, Chicago, Norfolk, Charleston, Savannah, & Jacksonville. Reefer Container Pros is powered by ITS ConGlobal, and customers that visit ReeferContainerPros.com can be connected directly with a refrigerated container expert at ITS ConGlobal.
Choose Size & Quantity, Give Delivery Details
First we need to know things like door direction, site contact, and that you have enough space for the truck to safely deliver the container. Delivery is calculated at checkout, based on zip code. PLEASE NOTE: We don't move containers once they're loaded (if that's what you need, you might try PODS or similar companies). Containers are painted neutral colors like beige or grey.
Rental Container is Delivered in 2-5 Business Days
Then we'll source your container from a preferred partner and notify you within one business day when to expect your container (the driver will also call your site contact when they are headed your way with the container). When you're ready for pick-up, make sure the container is empty and unobstructed and then terminate your rental by logging into your account in our customer portal.
Your Credit Card Will Be Billed Monthly (2/mo. minimum)
Payments will be billed automatically until you request pick-up. You can manage your account in our customer portal and do things like terminate your rental (please allow up to 10 business days for pick-up) and change your payment method. There are no hidden charges or long-term contracts. Just fill out the form and keep the container as long as you need it. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.
Steel Storage Container Dimensions:
Ocean cargo containers are held to a rigid standard to ensure that there are no issues during shipping. Each intermodal shipping container (sometimes called "conex" containers) must be able to not only stack perfectly on a cargo ship, but also lock into chassis trailers safely and securely stack on rail cars. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) sets the standards for shipping container dimensions (via ISO 668).
Our steel storage containers rentals are refurbished used shipping containers that have been painted a neutral color like beige or grey. Durable, and meant to withstand the elements, steel shipping containers make great storage containers.
We've Got a Lot of Happy Customers
- "Renting from you guys was exactly the way I like to do business. Fast, simple, to the point! Everything happened exactly as your web site said it would. If every company I worked with did business like you guys the world would be a happier place! Thanks again and I look forward to working with you in the future."
- "Great experience. I knew nothing about containers, read the info, called with questions and all were answered. Bought 2, they scheduled the delivery service. The driver was very helpful with the delivery and the containers were in great shape. Nothing more I could have expected. Thanks to everyone for making it so easy. :)"

What to Expect in a Steel Storage Container Rental:
Quality Storage Containers
We work directly with some of the largest container providers in North America, as well as some of the best regional providers, to ensure the container you receive is a high quality steel storage container. We guarantee that the container will be leak free, with doors that seal, and floors strong enough for a small forklift to drive on without issue. The storage container will also be painted a neutral color (beige, grey, etc.) and have a lock-box, or upgraded locking system, for you to place your own lock.
Professional Container Delivery
Once you place your order, we'll be in touch within one business day to confirm the delivery ETA. We only use professional hauling partners to make your storage container delivery, and the driver will give you a call when they're en route that day. Please make sure you're ready for the truck by visiting this page to learn more about delivery. Our standard delivery timeline is 2-5 business days, but if there's a specific day you need it please feel free to contact us.

Western Container Sales wants to make it simple. We don't have commissioned salespeople, and we don't believe you can talk anyone into a 9,000-pound steel box if they don't need one.

We know some customers will still have questions about the process, and we're always happy to help. Feel free to contact us by chat or by phone.
