- Generally speaking the break-even point financially is about 18 months, depending on where you are located. If you think you are going to need your container for 1-2 years, you are probably better off purchasing your container.
- You always need to store longer than you think. Everyone is hopeful that their project is only going to last a year, but once you get used to the convenience of a container, you will continue to find new things to store in it. Your original project may finish, but your storage needs may not.
- Even if you are only close to your break-even point financially, you have a container at the end of your project. Super Cubes will buy back most containers, so you make something on your purchase. Often friends, family and neighbors have noticed your container. If you are ready to get rid of it, you will find people lining up to buy it from you. Let Super Cubes help you move it from your location to your buyer's location.
- Modifications are easier on a container you own. Whether you want to paint the container to match your location or to show your logo, convert it into an office, or just add doors so it is easier for you to use, making modifications on a container you own is easy. However, most container rental locations will not allow such modifications for rental.
