Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Simi Valley, California, Go Mini’s gained industry notice when about half of its 200-plus dealers agreed to follow the company’s decision to convert to a franchise model. Since then, Go Mini’s has become the fastest growing portable storage company in North America and has been ranked in the “Top 20 New Franchises” by Entrepreneur magazine.
Industry insiders praise Go Mini’s superior product and customer service, as well as an operations model that requires minimal staff and fewer demands on the ownership. Unlike other portable storage companies that demand burdensome fixed costs, such as warehouses and forklifts, Go Mini’s better-built, ventilated containers withstand the elements and resist humidity and mold. Consumers value the difference and appreciate that Go Mini’s offers a 20-foot container, the only franchised portable storage company that does.
For the businessperson who already owns storage units, an equipment/vehicle rental company or an operation with sufficient property to accommodate containers, a Go Mini’s franchise can be the ideal diversification strategy. At the proper scale — number of containers matched to the size and mobility trends of your market — a Go Mini’s franchise can generate substantial profits while offering appealing tax advantages.
Couple that with proprietary marketing/operation systems, tailored growth plans plus ROI analytics and corporate support that dials in effective strategies for every market, and it’s little wonder Franchise Business Review recognizes Go Mini’s as having the “Most Satisfied Franchisees.”
The average American moves nearly 12 times in her lifetime.
Add to that the home renovations or the occasional emergency, such as fire, flood or storm damage, and homeowners are constantly searching for convenient, flexible, portable storage solutions. Long story short, the demand for Go Mini’s can be big business.
Most portable storage companies will deliver and pick up a container to the customer’s home. But the similarities end there. Go Mini’s offers a clear advantage that the customer sees and values.
For you, reward without restrictions.

Are you ready to move forward faster?
Those with entrepreneurial spirit choose franchising because it offers them greater opportunity to realize their lifestyle dreams and a faster route to their financial goals. While they want the freedom of owning their business, they also feel secure in the knowledge that a substantial and proven support network has their back.
Owning a franchise means being in business for themselves, never by themselves.
The benefits are substantial.
A known brand: It often takes years and great sums of money to build brand awareness. Buying into an established brand like Go Mini’s means instant recognition and acceptance for your business, saving a small fortune and years of effort.
Minimum risk: Trial and error can be time consuming. And expensive. A solid franchise squashes the learning curve for new franchisees because they’ve already identified errors and missteps that plague most new businesses, so you can avoid the pitfalls. It’s like being a veteran in the business from day one.
Support when you need it: Even before you “sign on the dotted line,” the Go Mini’s support network has taken your success to heart — answering questions, offering advice, introducing you to other franchisees who can share knowledge. Once on board, the support redoubles with ongoing training, conferences and an open-door policy whenever there are questions or concerns.
