Frequently Asked Questions
All of our containers are 7 feet wide, designed to fit in a single car parking space. Our 16ft., 10ft. and 5ft. long containers are 8ft. tall and our 8ft. container is 8 ½ feet tall, designed so customers can stand a sofa up on end and movers can load items higher and tighter, optimizing square footage.
We find that one 16ft Bins® Container or two 8ft Bins® Containers will hold roughly all household furniture for a typical 1800 to 2000 sq. ft. three bedroom home. This doesn’t always include a full basement, large kitchen appliances or patio furniture.
We require just one business day’s notice to schedule a job.

We always charge a flat rate within 30 miles of our warehouse at 6399 Broughton Ave. Columbus, OH 43213. When we get outside of our 30-mile radius we do charge a nominal per mile fee to cover our cost for extra fuel, labor, time, etc.
Additionally, we do offer in-state moving services. If you are looking for in-state moving services outside of Central Ohio, give us a call at 1-800-GOT-BINS and we’ll get you an exact quote!
We have a one-month minimum rental payment period (you can keep the Bin for as long or as little as you’d like!) but starting the second month we do prorate for seven (7) days after your recurring rental date, which starts the day of delivery. On the eighth day we do charge for the full month.

Yes, Bins® Containers are made from a galvanized steel frame and an innovated composite material that is extremely durable and damage resistant. Bins® Containers’ side walls, doors and floors are constructed from a high-density polyethylene core thermally bonded between two high-strength steel skins.
Each panel and product contains post-consumer recycled thermoplastic resin produced from recyclables like water bottles, milk jugs or detergent containers that have been collected for recycling and transformed into a usable product. And, at the end of the Bins® Container lifespan, our panels are 100% recyclable.
Our original Bins® containers are all aluminum with hard plastic side walls and roll-up doors.
We do ask customers to supply their own lock, providing safety from forced or unwanted entry.
