Frequently Asked Questions
Below you will find some of our most frequently asked questions. If you still have questions, or you prefer to speak with someone, please feel free to contact us. We would love to help you!
We have 2 sizes, 10′ x 16.5′ and 8′ x 12.5′. Both come with garage style doors, and are light tan with darker tan trim. Occasionally, we have earlier generation (used) buildings that have forest green trim.
Minimal preparation is needed! The surface needs to be flat and somewhat level. Verify sprinkler head, waterline, and septic tank locations prior to delivery. Some tree branches may need to be cut or trimmed. Customer is responsible for preparation prior to delivery. We will stabilize/level the building when placing it.
Our crane truck offers a lot of placement versatility, with approximately 26 feet of reach. Fences, trees, and other objects on the property can restrict where the building is placed. There must be 14 FEET clearance between power/cable lines, or other overhead objects, and the TOP of a fence, or any object including the ground. The unit should be placed in an easily accessible area. We also ask you to notify us if subsequent construction will prohibit the removal of the building after it has been placed.
Customers are responsible for zoning requirements, and permission from landlords.
Our storage buildings are delivered on a crane truck. The crane attaches to the top of the building and it can be lifted over most fences. However, we need 14 FEET of clearance above the top of your fence. If we do not have 14 feet of clearance above the fence, the fence may need to be taken down and the customer must have this done prior to arrival. Please keep in mind the fence may also have to be taken down if the unit is picked up. Call our office if you have any questions and we can discuss options. Also see “Are there placement restrictions?”
The monthly or initial payments can be made online, by mail, in person, by phone or by auto-pay. We accept cash, checks, money orders or credit/debit cards. The initial payments are due on or prior to deliver to include giving them to our driver on arrival.
During contract term, whether a straight rental or rent-to-own, modifications are NOT permitted. Modifications include, but are not limited to drilling holes, electrical work, cutting walls/floor, and painting.
Adding shelves or benches that do not include drilling holes, or driving screws etc. in the walls, braces, or floor is fine.
The building comes with a flush-mounted lock and keys. This lock provides more security than a padlock. Additional locks can be purchased when needed.
American Porta-Stor buildings are truly portable and made to be moved! Call our office if you would like to schedule a move.
If you are moving and the building is under contract, we must know. American Porta-Stor must handle all moves if the building is under contract. Units must be 100% empty. Call our office for prices.
Yes, you may ask for us to pick your building any time. If you want to opt out before having the building for 6 months, a $100 pickup fee for the 8×12, and a $150 pick up fee for the 10×16 applies. After 6 months, no pick up fee is charged.
Unpaid balances will be reported to Credit Bureaus.
