In the last 30 years, A.B. Richards – the leading supplier of ground-level storage containers in the Northeast since 1982 – has seen storage containers become widely used by business owners, retailers, and contractors who can now easily and securely store inventory, equipment, construction materials and key documents inside of them.
In that same time span, it’s also become commonplace for homeowners to safely store household items, clothing, and furniture when staging and selling, renovating and repairing or decluttering their homes.
In fact, today, because of their sturdy, stainless steel construction and their ability to be delivered and kept on site, portable storage containers are not only cost-effective, but they’re also the most secure way to store all sorts of items, from home furnishings to building materials at construction sites.
Secure 14-Gauge Steel Storage Containers
At A.B. Richards both residential and commercial customers can trust that our portable storage containers are made from rugged, 14-gauge steel and feature thick, heavy-duty steel walls and swing-out doors that can be secured with their own sturdy locks. This makes them a less-likely target of thieves and other unwanted intruders.
Furthermore, portable storage units from A.B. Richards are weatherproof and fireproof, allowing our clients to rest assured that anything that they store from their home or business will stay safe and secure during all types of inclement and extreme weather, major storms and other emergencies and natural disasters.
Our mobile storage units can also withstand heavy-duty inventory – such as seasonal displays, industrial equipment, and construction tools – thanks to 1-3/8-inch hardwood floors. The floors in our 20ft containers can support a maximum gross weight of 44,800 pounds.
The floors in our 40ft containers can hold a maximum gross weight of 67,200 pounds. The floors in our 40ft jumbo (hi-cube) containers can withstand the same weight, with the added benefit of allowing large, awkward items to be stored with ease and pallets to be double-stacked.
In addition, our containers’ convenient on-site location makes it easier to control access and to monitor who goes in and out of them.
However, to maximize the safety of the storage containers our customers rent or lease and reduce the likelihood of any type of security breach, the portable storage experts at A.B. Richards recommend that they follow safety procedures and common sense safety tips every time.
