It’s really the whole reason why you put items into storage. At A.B. Richards, we know you want your belongings, business records, and equipment to be safe when you don’t have room or it’s inconvenient to store them in your home or office.
Very often, that means making certain your items are safe from theft, but you also want to retrieve your belongings in the shape that you left them. That means you want to be certain your portable storage containers can stand up to what Mother Nature throws at you. At A.B. Richards, we know you’re going to have peace of mind.
A.B. Richards Containers Are Durable
A.B. Richards is a ground level storage container company, we won’t sell the containers to you, but we’ll deliver them to you and we’ll pick them up when you’re done with them. If you need your portable storage unit delivered to a smaller property lot without too much open space, our 20ft storage containers are a great option.
If you have a large amount of inventory or equipment to store and you have more room on your property, then you should try our 40ft storage containers or if you need a foot more of extra head space, opt for our 40ft Jumbo containers. We make storage incredibly easy and we want to tell you why these durable containers stand up to weather.
Our Portable Storage Containers Protect Your Belongings
Your first line of defense against weather is A.B. Richards durability. We offer high-quality storage units made of 14-gauge steel. They have heavy-duty steel walls and the unit is secured by swing-out doors and 1 3/8-inch hardwood floors.
Our containers can support maximum gross weights of 44,800 pounds for 20ft container and 67,200 pounds for 40ft containers. That’s enough to stand up against strong winds and storms. But what about flooding? Can water get into a storage container? When we say A.B. Richards containers are weatherproof, we mean it.
Remember, some people live in structures made from storage containers. According to the website Container Home Plans, these containers were used in New York City when they were looking to create a post-disaster prototype. The idea is to make stackable homes in densely populated areas in the aftermath of storms similar to Superstorm Sandy when they strike the city.
Moisture can get in your container though if you’re not careful with how you store your things. Items such as refrigerators or dishwashers can still contain water which could spill out. Storing items like clothing that are not completely dry can also cause condensation to form in your storage container.
