Great Lakes Kwik Space is a mostly business-to-business operation. But our shipping and storage containers are also available for rent and/or for sale to individuals all throughout Chicago and Chicagoland. Whether you’re running a retail store and are in need of an affordable and nearby space for excess inventory or if you’re an individual who is looking to store Christmas gifts on layaway until December, we’ve got your covered. Whatever the case, we thought it’d be useful to give you some information about our storage trailer rentals Chicagoland services.
Particularly for clothing lines, having a place to store what people aren’t buying in the off-season is important. The weather grows more unpredictable each year. But renting out warehouse space is often far more expensive and is also physically too far away for times when the weather changes on short notice and people all of a sudden begin needing long or short sleeves. Without our containers, storeowners would have no choice but to rent or buy additional store space or warehouse space, which ends up being unreasonably costly and is also unnecessarily time consuming.
Our semi-trailers, which were formerly used for road service, are exceptionally safe and secure. Other forms of self-storage are vulnerable not only to water and air damage, but also to the threat of perpetrators breaking in and stealing the contents inside. With our trailers and containers, no such threat exists. GLKS’s semi-trailers are all wind and watertight and are virtually impenetrable.
One can easily transport our trailers from place to place by using a forklift or pallet jack. This enables users to easily back the trailers up to the door of the loading dock for loading and unloading of the contents inside.
During our 25 years in business, we’ve found that it’s difficult to predict when and for how long one will need a trailer. One of the most common questions we receive from prospective customers is how soon can we deliver it? Our answer is always just tell us where, when, and how many units you need, and we’ll make it happen. Whereas other companies will plainly say they cannot deliver by the afternoon with less than a day’s notice, we always find a way. We have several full-time drivers on call to get the job done at a moment’s notice.
