It can sometimes be a difficult decision as to whether to buy or rent a storage container.
Renting is something that can be more expensive in the long term but there are some advantages in doing it.
You will probably find that more people will rent them rather than buy them though.
This can be because they do not use them for permanent storage.
A container for rent tends to be used when a person or business needs some extra space. They will tend to use it until they no longer need that storage space.
Often they might need it because they have managed to get hold of some extra stock or for personal when temporarily not having somewhere to store things, perhaps between houses or things like that.
Renting can be good because you do not have to find somewhere to keep the storage container once you no longer need it. Knowing how to dispose of one after use, can be difficult.
If you only need it for a short period of time, then renting can be a cheaper option as well.
If you need to change the size of the storage container, you can do this more easily when renting as you will not need to sell the other one, you can just exchange them.
If you do have things to store, you may be tempted to get a bigger house or business premises over a storage container. However, this can be a lot more expensive or just unaffordable.
If you are renting business space or a home, then renting extra space can be a lot dearer than the cost of a storage container. If you own the property then this can be different.
You may decide that you would like to buy something bigger in order to store everything that you need. This could be a worthwhile investment because property tends to increase in value over time.
However, you will need to have the money available to do this and it may be that you cannot afford it.
If you have borrow money to buy, then the cost of the loan could be higher than the cost of the rental so you need to consider what might be the best option for you financially.
It can be worth doing some calculations to find out what is best.
You may find that you cannot buy or rent more space near to where you want it. In this case renting a storage container can be the best possible option for you.
It can be in a convenient location and mean that you get the extra space you need without having to completely relocate.
So the advantages of renting over buying can be the reduced short term cost and the fact that you can change the size more easily.
You may also find that it provides valuable storage space when you cannot afford to buy a bigger property or rent somewhere larger.
It can also be useful if you have no other option for storage close to where you need it.
