With the holiday season wrapping up (no pun intended), retailers might turn to mobile storage units for their excess stock. After all, once the holiday rush and subsequent return period for holiday gifts are over, it’s time for retailers to note which products sold, which ones did not and ultimately what has to be packed away for another year.
This is where portable storage containers from A.B. Richards, the leading supplier of ground-level storage containers in the Northeast since 1982, can help them. One or more of our secure, weatherproof and fireproof on-site storage containers can quickly, easily and efficiently be delivered on premises to retailers seeking a cost-effective short- or long-term storage solution for their seasonal and holiday stock.
Retailers can choose 20-foot, 40-foot and 40-foot jumbo (hi-cube) portable storage units that can be easily and affordably rented or leased. A.B. Richards’ 20-foot container is particularly cost-effective for retailers, and can be obtained for as little $79 per month, which is significantly less than any off-site storage location.

How Storing Surplus Seasonal Inventory in Portable Storage Units Helps Retailers
According to the experts at A.B. Richards, there are five ways storing excess seasonal merchandise in mobile storage units helps retailers:
- Portable storage containers can hold everything a retailer needs before, during and after the busy holiday season: fixtures, signage, seasonal decorations and high-demand holiday merchandise. All of these things are needed during October through December, but can crowd an already busy sales floor in the off months.
- Mobile storage units free up all-important storage space in stock rooms that can become cramped and disorganized during the holiday season.
- Because of the mobile nature of these storage units, retailers can conveniently move excess inventory into one or more portable storage units right on site and promptly implement and handily maintain a retail inventory management system to track all inventory that’s stored.
- Using portable storage removes the cost of and need for expensive off-site commercial storage and warehouse space and related transportation costs.
- Renting or leasing on-demand storage containers can also help retailers throughout the year. They can store occasional-use items such as outdoor furniture and promotional displays and materials. They can also store crucial business records that need to be kept without taking up precious back-office space.
