On Wednesday, the LaGrange-Troup County Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting for Portable Storage Solutions in LaGrange.

The company offers an alternate method of storage than the typical storage rental business where customers lease one or more self-storage units to hold their belongings at a storage facility.

Portable Storage Solutions (PSS) offers a portable storage business where they bring out containers to your residence to store items.

Owner Chad Wallace said many of their customers have storm or fire damage and need a place to put their belongings while their home is repaired or remodeled. He said their storage containers are also useful for moving.

“If you’re moving somewhat within the local area, within about 45 minutes to an hour we will bring a container to your residence and you pack your stuff up and then we’ll pick it up and move it to your new home,” Wallace said.

Some people just use the containers as an alternative for storing things near their homes, he said.

Wallace said the company officially started in February 2021, but they recently joined the chamber of commerce. He said they still have plans to expand.

The company started with 20 storage containers and a roll-off truck. Since then they have added 12 containers after their first year and another dozen in 2022.

Wallace said they have also implemented a new delivery process. The containers can be moved via remote control so that they don’t have to be placed by the truck, which can damage lawns.

“We can remotely control the container up to your residence and stay out of your driveways. It works out well because if somebody wants it right at their front door so they don’t have to walk far, we can do that,” Wallace said.

Wallace said the company is family-owned and locally operated. 

Because of the way the storage company operates, they don’t have a public storage facility so they held the ribbon cutting near the chamber with one of their storage pods.
