Frequently Asked Questions
Essentially, a GO MINI is a high quality durable storage unit on wheels. However, a GO MINI is unique because it is delivered to you, instead of you taking valuable time traveling back and forth to a storage facility. This saves you time as well as the additional liability and expense of renting a truck.
No, it is not a requirement. We will place the container in your predetermined location at your home or office. Prior to delivery, we must have a signed rental agreement.
Ideally, the further out you can order a GO MINI, the better. However, we are locally owned and operated giving us maximum flexibility to respond on shorter notice.

Yes, you will need a lock to keep your belongings secure. We do not access your container at any time and security of the container and its belongings are your responsibility. GO MINI’S has locks available for sale or you may purchase your own lock. If you would like to buy a lock from us, please inform your GO MINI’S representative.
Items may shift during loading or transport if they are not properly secured. There are rails at two levels across the walls and back of the GO MINI which can be used to secure your items at several points during loading.
Some homeowners associations and local ordinances limit the amount of time a GO MINI can be kept at your site. To be sure, contact your homeowners association and/or local code enforcement agency. Even in cases where limitations exist, allowances are generally made for you to accomplish your move with a GO MINI just like with any other mode for moving.
If you cannot or do not wish to keep the GO MINI container on your own site, we can store it for you safely and securely in the Go Mini’s Warehouse.
Access to the contents of your GO MINI is available while it is being stored. However, you must schedule a time to access your GO MINI during our normal business hours, MON – FRI, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. EST. There is no charge for this service.
