Storage Unit Shortages in Boise

Nov 22, 2021 | Storage Containers

Did you know that the cost of living in Boise, Idaho is now higher than the national average? The cost of housing is also exceedingly high. Even with the high costs, Boise is still a desirable place to live for most people who are fleeing the coastal cities. This has led to a problem with overcrowding because there are more people in Boise than it would be able to accommodate if everyone had affordable housing options.

The most recent rental market data from the Boise City-County Association of REALTORS ® (BCCAR) indicates that there are more renters in Boise than there are rental units for them to rent. Storage units to rent in the area are also far too few to accommodate the demand. The lack of availability has led to overcrowding, which is a key concern for many people living in Boise.

The good news is there are other options available that are even more convenient than self-storage. Rather than hauling your stuff to the storage facility which requires a truck, mobile storage brings the storage to you.

Advantages of Storage Containers

There are many benefits of portable storage containers. They can be used to store and organize an individual’s personal items. It is a low-cost and convenient option for many people who need to expand their personal space.

Storage containers are also easy to use and tend to be more secure than traditional storage facilities, which may offer a higher level of protection from potential theft or fires.

The containers can be used to secure just about anything that an individual wants to store securely, including items such as tools, glassware, and china, furniture, seasonal clothing, hobbies, family heirlooms, or important documents.
