Older Semi Trailers, Containers Great For Storage
“We can pull trailers down the road from one site to another,” explains Marty Kelzer, A-1 general manager. “They’re great for use with forklifts, moving materials in and out as needed.”
Kelzer says customers include retailers who are temporarily overstocked or manufacturers who are stocking up on parts for an upcoming project.
“The trailers are ideal for temporary storage of items that will need to be moved in on demand,” says Kelzer. “They also work well for businesses who need remote storage for supplies or parts. Farmers with remote locations will set up temporary storage of tools, lubricants and other supplies during busy seasons.”
In addition to older semi-trailers, A-1 Storage offers containers from 10 to 48 ft. in length. The water-resistant, lockable and secure containers can be set up as remote offices, storage units or shelters.
“We have customers with remote timber plots who want secure shelter for their 4-wheelers and other gear,” says Kelzer. “We are also getting a lot of interest from seed companies wanting to lease or purchase containers.”
Kelzer says the portable containers are also popular with people moving out of their homes. “We can drop a container off, and the customer will load their furniture and other belongings,” he says. “When it is full, we pick it up and deliver it to the new house, and they unload it. Containers are easier to load than moving vans because they are at ground level.”
A-1 offers short and long-term leases on trailers and containers. They are also for sale when available, starting at $1,200.
“We have more than 1,400 containers moving in and out of 11 yards with 7 trucks a day out on delivery,” says Kelzer. “We do everything we can to make sure our customers have what they want when they want it.”
