They won't know about your stash of Captain Jack spiced rum and gold bullion if you don't tell them.

Why not just rent a POD?


Edit:

oops, didn't realize someone had already mentioned it.

I looked at the POD containers and they'd end up being pretty expensive for an equivalent size and length of storage (40x8 for a year). Couple, 3, 4 hundred a month.

Like Lou said, I can't move the overseas container myself. And, I have the added limitation- for my monthly storage of the trailer to be cheap ($89/month), it can't be commercial.

I'm thinking of buying used so I don't have a whole lot of depreciation to deal with. Someone else would have already taken the hit for it.

AND- like Lou, I'm trying to get my whole household into it. That's my biggest problem. I don't know how much crap I have.

.
Would it still be considered commercial if it has a non-commercial owner? What about using 2 twenty foot containers and having a local rollback service move them for you. I think the 20 ft weight about 5k empty.

It's technically an RV storage lot and I'll be pushing the rules with my original plan, as is. There is already a car hauler there, so there's some precedence for cargo-hauler types of trailers. I'm just stretching the rules for keeping a household of contents in my trailer.

I'm not sure a cargo "container" would fly.
