How Do We Compare to PODS & Mobile Mini?
Railbox Consulting vs. PODS & Mobile Mini:
The two largest nationwide portable storage companies are PODS (Portable On Demand Storage) & Mobile Mini. While both companies offer nationwide portable storage rentals, there are some key differences.
Compare us to Mobile Mini:
Mobile Mini offers nationwide portable storage container rentals in a variety of lengths and sizes. Using converted steel shipping containers for storage, custom built portable offices and specialty containment products. Unlike Mobile Mini, Railbox Consulting customers can see prices on our website and order online.
This is because Railbox Consulting offers the same transparent rental rate, nationwide. We also believe a month is a month, and not 28 days. So we'll only bill you 12-times per year... not 13 like Mobile Mini. Take a look at our hidden fee calculator to see what that extra month costs...
Compare us to PODS:
PODS offers custom built, smaller, storage units with aluminum and plastic exteriors. Railbox Consulting offers all steel storage containers. PODS has smaller, lighter units designed to be moved after they are loaded. Railbox Consulting does NOT move containers after they're loaded.
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.

Why Does Railbox Consulting Post Portable Storage Container Rental Rates Online When Most Companies Won't?
Renting a storage container can be a complicated process. Railbox Consulting wants to make it simple. We don't have salespeople on staff, and we don't believe you can talk anyone into a 9,000-pound steel box if they don't need one. You have more important things to do than go through a tedious quoting process with a sales rep.
If you need a steel storage container rental, we provide up front and fair pricing with no hidden fees. Better yet, our container rental prices are the same nationwide (something our competitors cannot say). We just try to make it easy to rent portable storage containers, and don't try to squeeze our profits out of hidden fees.
We also only have 12 billing cycles per year (companies like Mobile Mini sneak in an extra month with 28-day billing cycles, an 8.3% annual cost variance), we believe in transparency up front. 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.
How the Process of Renting a Storage Container Works:
Select Your Storage Container Rental Size & Quantity
Select the steel storage container size you need and fill out our online order form. You might notice we offer fewer sizes for rentals, that's because 10', 20' & 40' containers are the most common size.
To simplify the ordering process and ensure quality of service nationwide, we only offer you what we know we can deliver. If you need different sizes we recommend you purchase a shipping container.
Make Sure You Have Enough Room For Delivery
A 20' storage container weighs 4,900-pounds, and a 40' storage container weighs just under 9,000-pounds. Delivering your portable storage rental takes heavy duty equipment, so we need to know what to expect.
It's important everyone is on the same page for delivery, so please let us know the door direction, site contact, and anything else we should know about your delivery. If we can't deliver safely you will still be charged for trucking.
Keep It As Long As You Need It - No Contracts
Keep your portable storage container as long as you want. Your credit or debit card is charged monthly. When you're done, just log back into your account and terminate the rental. That's it. No hidden charges or contracts.
You're only obligated to the trucking charges and 2-months of rent. Beyond that, you can cancel at any time and we'll pick-up the container within about 5 business days. Any other questions, contact us.
