Wood boards are placed under the rubber-coated wheels of the units to disburse the weight and protect your driveway.
The rental of the unit is for 4 weeks, and therefore the payments are taken every 4 weeks (28 days). Payments are pro-rated after the first 4 week rental period, so that you only pay for the days that you use the Go Mini’s Rental container.
The weight limit is 8000 pounds.
All the containers are 8 feet high and 8 feet wide. We have three lengths available: 12”, 16” and 20”.
No, you simply need to ensure that there is sufficient space for us to deliver. As a courtesy we will call and confirm delivery instructions one day prior to delivering or picking up your container.

We need just 9½ feet width clearance and a minimum 14 feet height clearance.

All of our storage rental containers are designed to be watertight and weatherproof – and the majority are stored outside year-round. There are no issues arising from weather.
If well packed, in most cases a 20 foot Go Mini’s container will hold the contents of a 3 bedroom home without appliances. The 12 foot Go Mini’s containers will hold a 1 bedroom condo without appliances. It is best to carefully assess your belongings to ensure you choose the appropriate size for your storage needs.
Go Mini’s will recommend a few moving companies that we feel provide great services to their customers, and ours. Most of our customers take advantage our flexibility and load and unload at their leisure.
Go Mini’s has a great team of professional drivers who have years of experience moving our containers. Units are loaded slowly and safely on and off our trucks, and we also recommend and can provide our customers with packing supplies that will help keep your belongings secure inside the units.
The unit can stay at your location for entire storage time. If you want the rental storage unit stored at our facility, then the rental container can stay at your location for as long as you need. Unless there is a specific regulation that defines the amount of time a container may be placed at your location, you may keep it for as long as you need.
We recommend that you safely pack all of your belongings using bubble wrap and boxes where appropriate. We are able to provide packing and moving supplies, which can be delivered with your unit. This is however entirely at each customer’s discretion.
Heavy items should be positioned on the floor of the container, with lighter items on top. Use moving blankets to protect furniture and straps to secure belongings if necessary. The tighter the unit is packed, the more you will fit and the safer the contents will be.
