How Much Do Our Moving Storage Containers Hold?

If you have moved before, you know the time and consideration involved in moving from one house to another. After planning, paperwork and researching residential moving companies, it’s time to focus on the best ways to take care of your belongings. You might find that it’s necessary to store certain items during the moving process, and in that case, Gilmore Services offers moving storage containers to lighten your load.

Will it hold my things? 

Are you trying to consolidate an array of items before your move? Maybe you need to scale down an entire room. We're here for you. Most people fit about 1,000 pounds in a container. Items like mattresses, tables, kid’s toys, easy chairs and a couch will typically take up space without adding a lot of weight. Large book or magazine collections, weights, workout or yard equipment, and heavy tools, may not be able to use all of the available space. All in all, one storage container can hold approximately an entire furnished room.
