Storage Company with Locations in California and Florida
Instant Storage was established in 1976, in Bakersfield, CA (the southern part of the San Joaquin Valley). We started to purchase storage and shipping containers from leasing companies and steamship lines, and in turn rented them to our customers. We built up an inventory of storage containers in a variety of sizes and configurations; at the time there were the standard 20′ and 40′ containers, plus 24′, 27′ and 35′ containers to purchase.
Construction companies became a bigger part of our business, so to provide another product to our valued customers we modified a container into an office, complete with air conditioning (AC), a desk and drafting table, as well as extra storage space. Wanting to provide more choices to our customers we modified storage containers to create 10′, 15′, 25′ and 30′ units.
In 2001, larger sizes became available 45′, 48′ and 53′ containers, which are currently only available at our California site. The 48′ and 53′ shipping containers are 8 ½’ wide larger than the standard unit, which is 8′ wide.
