Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How is my Mobile Attic container transported?

A: Our professional drivers will place your storage container on a standard rollback truck and deliver the container wherever you direct them. There is a slight slope when loading the container, approximately a 35 degree angle.  This is not any more than some hills that are on our roadways.  This is also why we offer endless strapping options within the container allowing items to be safely secured within the container.

Q: Is there a way for me to secure my items within the container?

A: Yes, our units are equipped with the "E" tracking system allowing for endless options for securing your items.

A: Yes, that is one of the many benefits of using the Mobile Attic storage system.  We offer the value of true convenience.

Q: Is there an additional cost for having Mobile Attic store the container for us?

A: There is an additional fee for relocating the loaded container to our facility and also for returning it to you.  That cost is based on the distance it is moved.  Be sure to call us and we can give you the specific cost based on your location.

Q: Should I be worried about controlling the temperature within my container?

These products can help protect your belongings from the damaging effects of moisture.
