Expand Easily & Rapid Return on Investment

The Trachte™ Micro Storage Unit is a portable storage system offering the standard features of a stationary building but with the convenience of mobility. The Micro can be placed on setbacks, easements, and other unused areas to expand storage space, which qualifies this building for a 7-year depreciation schedule. The Micro is a practical solution for owners who want to easily expand a current facility with a rapid return on investment.

The Micro is available as a package, which includes partitions, flooring, and roll-up doors. Standard sizes are 8′ x 20′ and 10′ x 20′ with 17 different unit mix layouts available.
