NPSA Featured in Mobile Self-Storage Magazine

The National Portable Storage Association is featured in a recent article in Mobile Self-Storage Magazine about the differences between portable storage and mobile storage.

Kansas city, MO, February 07, 2010 --( John Finnessy, executive director of the National Portable Storage Association, a nonprofit membership association dedicated to the advancement of the portable storage industry, is featured in the latest edition of Mobile Self-Storage Magazine.

The issue features Finnessy discussing his views in an article entitled, "Mobile Versus Portable: What's In a Name?" The article details the similarities and differences between mobile and portable storage. There are indeed major differences between the two, as Finnessy and other experts from both the mobile and portable storage industries point out.

"Even after all these years, there is still confusion surrounding mobile versus portable storage. Some people think it's the same thing – but it's not," Finnessy said. "Although there are many similarities, it's the key differences which distinguishes the opportunities for storage companies. Understanding the landscape prepares you for profits."

In the article, Finnessy describes portable storage as commercial market-minded whereas the mobile storage industry is consumer market-minded. He also points to differences in the actual box construction, the lifespan of the units, and the delivery options for each type of storage.

"I applaud Mobile Self-Storage Magazine for taking on this topic," Finnessy said. "By continuing to educate consumer and industrial markets, it will bring more opportunities for both niches in the portable storage and mobile storage industries."
