A few things to think about before calling Container Stop to schedule the move include:

  • Is there a clear approach for pick up and delivery? A storage container in Salinas agricultural yard might have a clearer approach than a container in a residential driveway. Are there any trees that need to be maneuvered around or equipment that needs to be moved away from the approach?
  • Is the road paved? Rainy weather might be a concern for some unpaved roads.
  • What are the dimensions of the new space for the storage container Salinas?
  • What is on each side and behind the new space? Container Stop can fit a container into just about any tight space, but it is still helpful to know as much about where it is going to be unloaded as possible.
  • Do you have to completely empty the container? Gross weight and protecting property from damage during the move are both important considerations. Not removing the contents, even if they may be tightly secured, might make the container weigh too much for legal shipping weight. Any contents that shift during the move are probably going to be damaged, even destroyed, and may create an unsafe situation for the driver and others traveling on the highways.
  • When do you need the container moved?
  • How much notice does Container Stop need to work with your moving schedule?
  • Do you need to be present for pick up and delivery?

–Container Stop is a storage container company in Paso Robles, California offering sales and modification services to suit their customers’ needs. Based on years of experience, Container Stop recommends five considerations to help streamline remodeling and save the owner time and money. Adding these considerations to a modification project will bring the most satisfaction for remodeled storage containers in Monterey. Container Stop ships throughout California and out of state, but offers free delivery for local orders.

Five Important Considerations For Remodeling A Storage Container

Using a container as a shop, office, or a combination of uses, means some kind of modification is probably needed. Rural use, for example, might be to store livestock feeds, some of which need temperature control to maintain freshness. Just about any commercial use for storage containers that Monterey businesses use is going to require shelving, light and ventilation.

Ventilation and temperature control

Sufficient air circulation protects items from condensation, mold and other damage. Container Stop can install fans, windows, doors and power outlets and also has units equipped for refrigeration. Ventilation is important even for temporary use over a few weeks or months. Mildew can start forming within 48 hours. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reports that there is sufficient evidence to link indoor exposure to mildew and molds with respiratory symptoms, asthma and pneumonitis.

Shelves, closets and cabinets

Stacking boxes might work for temporary storage, but not when the stored items need to be frequently accessed. Quick and easy access to inventory and supplies is essential for business and for peace of mind. Whether to use shelves, closets or cabinets can be a personal decision based in the easiest way to access the stored items.

Lighting and power

No one wants to stumble around in the dark with a flashlight trying to find something. Skylights, windows and doors are great for daylight, but what about after dark? If the container is being used as a shop how are the tools going to get power? The experts that deliver storage containers to Monterey can help plan electrical needs.

Floors and walls

Turning a storage container into any imaginable space is one of the reasons they are popular. The bare steel surroundings can be remodeled into anything from serviceable storage or a shop to a designer-inspired extra room. Final decorating touches are up to the owner after the container is delivered but Container Stop can build and install the bones.

Security and safety

Things to consider include protecting the container from break-in and vandalism, secure shelving and cabinets to prevent injury and damage in case of an earthquake, fire safety and emergency exits. Ways to secure doors and windows include lock boxes, cross bars and inner locks and bars over the windows. External lighting is important. Don’t forget an alarm system!

The Container Stop Releases The Report ‘Reasons To Ventilate A Storage Container’

shipping container ventilation

–Container Stop owner Garrett Crocker, has released a report about the importance of ventilating storage containers. “Not only does the right kind of ventilation keep air flowing, it helps prevent property loss to mold and rust,” said Crocker. “Ventilation also a health consideration for people working inside.”
Container Stop is a Paso Robles Storage Container company started by Crocker to fulfill a need for storage containers in Salinas and throughout California. The company offers fairly priced shipping containers as well as modification services to suit whatever needs customers may have.

The report, ‘Reasons To Ventilate Storage Containers,” can be read below, and on the Container Stop website.

Reasons To Ventilate Storage Containers

Storage containers are built to be airtight and water tight so their contents can be safely transported across oceans. Once retired to a different use on land, air and water tightness can contribute to mold, rust, poor air quality, disease and property loss. Whether the use for storage container in Salinas is farm equipment, inventory, or personal or business use, it is important that it be properly ventilated.

The reasons to ventilate storage containers are:

Mold, a fungus which when left untreated can be very expensive to remove and can cause harm when spores are inhaled.

Diseases. Poor ventilation has been linked with numerous human diseases such as: pneumonia, dry eyes and nausea and respiratory diseases, the most common of which is asthma.

Rust. Poor ventilation can lead to condensation, which can cause steel containers to rust. This rust can also affect any metal pipework that runs throughout the container. Repairing rusting containers can be a time consuming and costly job.

Bad smells. Poor ventilation can lead to musty odors. Because the air has nowhere to go, any smell will linger and reduce air quality.

Finding the balance between the right amount of ventilation and too much depends on the use of the container. A refrigerated container would need different air circulation than one storing dry goods. When the container is being remodeled to serve as an office or a shop and occupied by people during work hours, the proper circulation of fresh air is a health and safety requirement.

Container Stop provides storage containers in 10’, 20’ and 40’ lengths for purchase or lease. The company ships all throughout California, and will even ship out of state, but offers free delivery for local orders. For all Salinas storage container needs, think Container Stop.
