Who does one call to get one moved? Selling my house soon (hopefully) and looking to buy one and use it to store my goodies in for a while and then sell it when I'm done (rather than pay for a storage unit) or keep it to build into a shed

Never dealt with this before.

If you are looking 20's anybody with a roll back wrecker can move them. If you are looking at 40's I have no idea. It's why the 40's often go for less than the 20's.

Thanks

I just saw an ad for Sourdough selling them. Its like 3500 or so for a 20 and 175/hr for delivery on a 20' and 4100ish (I forgot) and 250/hr for delivery on a 40'.

That's a decent deal for a 20'. We load ours with a loader onto a regular flat deck trailer, 2-20's end to end. A rollback like sourdough has would be easiest for you. Price sounds right.

Id check CL for a conex. I picked up a 40' high cube for $2500. To move it from Chugiak to Anc was $250. They gave me some BS about new management and when i moved it from Anc to Chugiak it was $400. Dropping it they had no problem. Picking it up they destroyed my fucking yard. That was Alaska Container Cache

Wife doesn't like my idea of getting a connex now Tried telling her I could turn around and sell it for the same price when we are done with it

I trust them to be more secure and weatherproof than storage units up here.

Leaks aren't hard to fix. They get REALLY hot in the summer and REALLY cold in the winter. When temps change they build up a bunch of condensation and it's almost raining inside. What i plan to do is take a large tarp and hang it from the ceiling and angled out towards the front of it so the condensation moves to the front into one bucket/container. Condensation starts to freeze and you get ice puddles building up.

Don't have those issues with mine, shits been nice and dry the past 3 years... Except when those faggots broke in last summer and stole all my reloading shit, tools and Legos.

Who the hell steals Legos??? Seriously?

The ones I've seen haven't had issues with condensation, but I've only seen a few. Maybe you need a few more holes in yours so it breaths better If I end up getting one and intend to keep it I'll probably turn it into a shed with a metal roof/carport type thing. I'd be storing at my inlaws place and my FIL has had a hard-on for getting a connex for a long time but MIL won't let him.

WIN-WIN for both of us
