The towing industry and the storage industry have long been considered quite different from one another. However, a new company called Snappy Box Moving and Storage is making it easy for towing operators to use the resources they already have (such as standard rollback trucks and a storage yard)to easily add portable storage. Snappy Box uses their 10 years of industry experience to offer a turnkey management program that runs all aspects of the portable storage business and allows the operator to continue to focus on their towing business.
With the increasing financial pressures that are facing towing operators, adding portable storage provides a way to diversify and produce consistent revenue when times are slow. The towing operator benefits by generating additional revenue from both “rent” of the portable storage container and the “delivery and pick-up fees.” On average, the containers rent for about $200 per month and stay rented for 6 months. That works out to be around $1400 per customer when you factor in both rent and delivery fees. That same container when rented for a year could produce $2800! Multiply this by 50, 100, or 200 containers, and towing operators can generate a significant profit.
Portable Storage was created to provide a more convenient option for customers needing self-storage. The portable storage container is brought to the customer’s home or business where they pack it up. Once it is packed, it can be stored at the customer’s property or brought back to a portable storage company’s secure outdoor storage lot or warehouse.
Snappy Box sells containers uniquely designed to be moved loaded with standard rollback trucks. The containers are waterproof, stackable, collapsible, secure, quickly assembled, lightweight and aesthetically pleasing. They come in two sizes: 8’ x 16’ and 8’ x 19’. These containers are extremely durable, typically have a 30-year life cycle, can carry up to 10,000 pounds and can withstand winds up to 120 miles an hour.
If you are looking for a way to diversify your towing business, create additional revenue for your business and utilize your trucks and drivers through slow times, then SnappyBox® Moving and Storage may be a great solution for you.
