A.B. Richards Has the Right Portable Storage Container For You
A.B. Richards has been in the ground level portable storage container business for more than 30 years. We’ve helped customers throughout the northeast find the storage solutions they need, and we can help you find the right storage container for you.
Our 20-foot-storage containers are ideal for residential use, such as storing furniture for a renovation or for a small business looking for extra inventory space or if your business or organization is holding an event. If you’re looking for more storage space for a larger retail operation or to store seasonal furniture and equipment, you might want to consider a 40-foot storage container. Sometimes for even larger storage jobs like storing equipment at a construction site, you might need a little more room, so we recommend our 40-foot Jumbo storage container with an extra foot of headroom. All of our storage containers are sturdy, secure, and we want to give you information about getting the most out of storage container security.

According to ICC Compliance Center, a website devoted to workplace safety, one simple way to secure your storage container is with a heavy-duty padlock. You can get a heavy-duty lock from A.B. Richards. If you’re storing materials in an area you’ll be away from during nighttime hours, for example, if you’re a contractor and you’re storing equipment at a job site, it’s recommended that you build fencing around your portable storage unit. If you can, it’s also a very good idea to get lights and illuminate the worksite overnight.
