    Hello,

    I have a warehouse where i could start..I want to offer storage for 40$/week. I deliver the container to the customer after he finish filling up I collect the container and store it in my warehouse. The customer can come for his items if he needs just few of his items or the whole items or I deliver the whole container to his home for 60$.
    Is it woth to start a mobile portable storage company like that or is it to much effort and not wothwhile??

    When you say container, what sized container do you have in mind?

    Not sure where you are located...but if you have a warehouse just build climate controlled self storage units.

    The delivering/picking up the container deal will cost you a lot of money. Trucks, employees, extra insurance, etc.

    Just build our self storage units.

    I have a friend that took a huge piece of land and tossed them up over 10 years ago - rows and rows of units has made him a liquid multi millionaire.

    Work smarter, not harder. If people really want to store their stuff they will come to you (especially if you have a climate controlled building) - why have to worry about a delivery schedule, extra employees, and most importantly extra expenses when you could just build units in your warehouse, sit back and collect $$ each month.
