Are you starting a home-based business? Do you already have one, but lack the storage space in your current home office to keep files, product or seasonal inventory on hand? Are you seeking a cost-effective solution to expand your home business?
Then consider renting or leasing one or more portable storage containers from A.B. Richards, the leading supplier of weatherproof, fireproof, ground-level storage containers in the Northeast since 1982.

How Home-Based Businesses Use Portable Storage Containers
Growing home-based businesses, which provide flexibility and offer lower overhead, can also use mobile storage units for the same or similar purposes. For example, home businesses can use them to:
- Create a Dedicated Home Office: Using on-site mobile storage units allow home business owners to clear a space in the their homes – perhaps a guest bedroom, corner of a basement, garage or attic, or an unused dining room – to turn into a base of operations and a place to focus on business.
- Free up Extra Office Space: On-demand portable storage units also let home business owners grow within their current home office space by becoming a landing space for extra clutter, document overflow and seldom-used office equipment and furniture.
- Inventory Storage: Mobile containers provide home business owners with the convenience and security of protecting and storing materials and products vital to their business, as well as the ability to order and keep additional merchandise on hand during the holidays and other busy seasons.
- Document and Equipment Storage: Portable containers further allow home business owners to easily store files and records – such as employee files, client files and tax records – that need to be kept for several years at a time.
At A.B. Richards we offer business owners 20-foot, 40-foot and 40-foot jumbo (hi-cube) portable storage containers that can be rented or leased. All containers are quickly delivered right on premises.
However, the unit of choice for home business storage (or residential storage in general) is usually the 20-foot container. This unit is secure, made of heavy-gauge stainless with sturdy swing-out doors and finished in a neutral gray color to blend in with most residential surroundings. The 20-foot unit can also be obtained for as little $79 per month, considerably less than any off-site storage facility.
