What Are Portable Storage Containers?

Whether you’re planning your next move or looking to free up extra space in your home, portable storage solutions can offer you the flexibility and convenience you need. What exactly are portable storage containers? Portable storage containers are large steel containers that are built to temporarily store your belongings such as:

  • Household items and furniture
  • Seasonal décor
  • Outdoor furniture
  • Documents and sensitive information
  • Renovation supplies
  • And more!

The Move Out Bin’s storage containers come in two different sizes (16’ x 8’ x 8’ and 20’ x 8’ x 8’) to hold the average 2- or 3-bedroom home (without appliances). Our storage containers have smooth insulated walls and are weatherproof, and anti-mold treated.


Whether you’re moving to a new home, creating extra space in your home, or storing seasonal items, our portable storage containers are the ideal storage solution.


How Does Moving with Portable Storage Containers Work?

With The Move Out Bin’s portable storage containers, moving is made convenient and affordable. Did you know that in 2019, 60% of Canadians identified moving as one of life’s most stressful experiences? Many Canadian’s ranked moving as more stressful than other stressful situations such as quitting smoking, planning a wedding, and starting a family.

We know that moving can be stressful, that’s why at The Move Out Bin, we’ve designed a simple four-step process to make moving as easy as possible. Here’s how it works:
