A Big Opportunity Awaits

Looking for a new business venture? If explosive growth opportunities interest you, then the new franchise program offered by Big Box Storage Franchising, Inc. might be just for you. By combining the stable, long term growth of the self-storage industry with the higher convenience levels demanded by today's consumers, a portable storage franchise, as offered by Big Box Storage Franchising, makes for the most logical of businesses.

Big Box Storage Franchising, Inc. was founded in an effort to capitalize on the golden opportunities created by the rapidly growing portable storage industry. Via our franchise program, we are focused on expanding our portable storage network of committed entrepreneurs throughout the United States. After reviewing the information herein, should you have further interest in our franchise program, we’ll be delighted to provide you with more insightful details.


Since its inception in the mid-1960‘s, the self-storage industry has grown to become an inherent part of the economic, as well as physical, landscape of the United States. Today, there are well over 25,000 facilities located across the country. Numerous trends have hastened the growth pace of the industry, including:

  • a far more transient society
  • the steady climb in housing costs resulting in smaller homes
  • the corresponding elevated demand for apartments and condominiums
  • society’s insatiable demand to accumulate
  • the industry’s relative resistance to economic downturns
  • a steady increase in small businesses

The self-storage industry is one of the few remaining fields where small, local operators continue to play the dominant role. Generally, they draw clientele from within a four mile radius of their facility—with the average operator enjoying occupancy rates of approximately 90%. Over the last four decades, such occupancy rates have helped to make the self-storage industry an increasingly lucrative investment. While the self-storage industry has been steadily growing since the 1960’s, portable storage has only just begun to enter the mainstream consciousness of America’s storage renters.

The evolution of the self-storage industry has brought about a spin-off industry now known as portable storage. Sometimes also referred to as containerized or mobile storage, our industry allows the consumer to significantly streamline their self-storage experience.
Previously, a storage renter was faced with the burden of renting a truck, loading it, hauling their belongings to a storage facility, and then unloading the truck—all before ever even getting the chance to load the actual storage unit. Today, with portable storage, a container is delivered right to the customer’s home or business. Once they’ve loaded the Big Box, it is retrieved for storing at the company’s secure, indoor facilities where the customer may access it, if so desired.

In a world where higher levels of convenience are increasingly demanded by consumers, it’s simply amazing that the mainstream service of delivering the storage unit to the consumer didn’t arise decades earlier. Customers of Big Box Storage are consistently heaping praise upon the company’s service for itssheer convenience and tremendous value.


  • Using flatbed trucks with portable forklifts mounted to the rear, Big Box Storage
    franchisees are able to efficiently service a steadily growing demand for portable
    storage services.
  • Storage containers, or “Big Boxes,” each measure 8' x 5' x 7' (L x W x H).
    Primarily made of wood, they can each hold up to 2,000 pounds or the contents
    of up to approximately one and a half rooms.
  • One or more Big Boxes are delivered directly to the exterior of client homes and
    businesses where the client can carefully pack it to their exacting standards. Packing supplies are also readily available for purchase by the client.
  • Upon completion of the packing, the franchisee then returns to retrieve the Big Box(es). After the pickup, they are transported to the franchisee’s secure
    storage warehouse.
  • The cliché, “it’s what’s inside that counts,” has never been more relevant. The safeguarding and care of every Big Box is an essential aspect of the franchised business.
  • Clients are able to readily access their Big Box(es) any day of the week by visiting the franchisee’s facility.
  • Once the client reaches the point when storage is no longer needed, the Big Box
    is then re-delivered to them for unloading.
  • Should a client be undertaking a long distance move, their Big Box can be shipped to the Big Box Storage franchisee in their destination city (based on coverage areas).
