"This company is so awesome! They have the absolute best rates for at sight storage in all of Salem, Oregon. The driver was great too. He put the box exactly where I wanted it to be, and had a good personality as well... I will always do business with this company if I ever need a storage solution again. You guys Rock!"

- Joe in Salem

"I love Simple Box! We needed to buy a container and they were so friendly and helpful. We were really impressed when the owner gave a special discount because it was going to be used for ministry purposes. Great company and great people!"

- Mandi in Yakima

"I've moved way too many times, 24 hours without sleep, and moving too fast to pack my things well. Never again! Simple Box totally converted me with their Moving Container package and now I tell everyone about it."

- Nick in North Seattle

"Talking with the customization crew out there at Simple Box, they said, 'Well, we can put something together for you to fit what you need it for.' The gap between the idea and actually making it happen is when Simple Box came in."

- Ivan Sims in Bellingham

Rent a Container

  • COST EFFECTIVE: Storage containers and Conex rentals are a cost-effective solution - often lower priced than typical mini-storage.
  • CONVENIENT: We do the driving for you. Renting a Container frees up your schedule to focus on on more important things.
  • LOCAL: Since we’re local, we can usually deliver a 20 or 40 foot rental container anywhere in Washington, Oregon and North Idaho within days.

Buy a Container

Why pay monthly rent when you can just buy a Shipping Container?

  • AFFORDABLE: Buying a container gives you instant space for a fraction of the price that building or renting would cost over the long-term.
  • CHOICES: We sell New and Used Containers in all the most popular sizes, such as 8x20 and 8x40. We also offer custom container sizes and custom modifications, like adding a window or roll-up door.
  • TRUSTED: We're local, so you can visit any of our locations and choose your own Shipping Container, or we can send you photos and save you a trip. We're family-owned and operated, so we keep our costs in check and always work to get you the best price. We're celebrating 22 years in business, so you can trust that we'll be here to help for years to come.

Move with Simple Box

Make your next move your best move! Portable Storage Containers make moving simple.

Here’s how it works:

  1. We deliver a 20 foot Moving Container to you.
  2. You pack at your own pace – take as much time as you need.
  3. We move your loaded Container to your new place or bring it back to our yard for temporary storage.

People love our 20 ft portable storage containers because they are bigger and stronger than the alternatives (compare to PODS®). A moving container from Simple Box is a cost-effective way to take the stress out of your next move.

Modify a Container

Although a Shipping Container starts as just a Simple Box, we can modify it to greatly increase its function and value. Our container modification team specializes in cutting, welding, fabricating, painting, and basic finish-work to make your container work just right for you.

From a Shipping Container House to a Mobile Office to a pop-up container shop, container modifications are a trendy and convenient way to get the workspace or storage area you need with the highest level of convenience. The options are limitless when you think inside the Box!

Our Promise

Since 1997, one simple principle has guided our interactions with customers, vendors and even competitors:

“Treat people the way you would like
to be treated.”

At Simple Box, you won’t get pushy sales people, rude joking, or confusing pricing from us. Our containers have a leak-free guarantee, we keep them clean, and we keep our prices fair. We know you have choices, so we count it a privilege to serve you.
