Portable storage containers are a very popular, cost-effective way to store home furnishings, to keep key business records and office files, and safeguard copper and building materials on a construction site, but you may be asking: “how many rooms of belongings can I fit in one of these containers?”
Do you need to store key business records without taking up precious office space? Do you have seasonal equipment, displays or merchandise that need to be stored in the off-peak season of your hotel, restaurant or storefront?
Perhaps, among the more innovative alternate uses for portable storage containers is the rise of portable classrooms in recent years. The idea was born out of the rise in prefab housing and the demand and need for alternative applications for temporary buildings.
There are many uses for portable storage containers, ranging from construction job-site storage, industrial storage for manufacturing plants and other commercial entities, and inventory and equipment storage for retailers, restaurants, hotels and other businesses to residential storage for homeowners looking to sell, renovate or free up space inside their homes or expand their home-based businesses.
Copper theft continues to be a true concern for contractors and has been for several years despite the fact that the number metal claims have dipped this past year, according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB). The reason is the on-going correlation between higher copper prices and the frequency of copper theft at construction sites.
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?

Richards, the leading supplier of weatherproof, fireproof, ground-level storage containers in the Northeast since 1982.

Summer is gone. Fall is here.

The very reason for renting or leasing one or more portable storage containers from A.B. Richards – the leading supplier of ground-level storage containers in the Northeast since 1982 – is to expand the living space inside your home or workspace inside your retail or office space.
You, of course, understand that space inside of your portable storage units is at a premium, and you ultimately want to be sure you use the space inside each one in the most efficient way possible.
Fall is around the corner, and it’s the perfect time to renovate your home or business. Homeowners and business owners alike know whether they’re planning a major indoor or outdoor renovation or addition, a smaller upgrade or a necessary repair ahead of the stormy winter that weather experts and The Old Farmer’s Almanac are predicting for the 2015-16 season in the Northeast, it will all be worth it in the end.
It’s getting there that can stress them out. Part of that stress comes from figuring out where to store possessions for the duration of construction.
