At Secure Container Solutions, we are proud to provide the people of Mississauga with clean, painted, secure, and well maintained container storage solutions for residential and commercial use.
Placing a storage container does not require any special foundations because the structure is self-supporting, though it should be placed on level ground for the doors to operate properly. Our SCS team can help with positioning your container. However, it is the responsibility of the Mississauga client to adequately prepare the site of placement, including organizing the materials for the container to rest on.
Some of the commonly used materials include a concrete garden stones under each corner, heavy duty plywood or railway sleepers underneath the container. Provided the container is placed on level ground, you can load it up to capacity, which is around 30 tonnes.
An overview of Mississauga
With a population of over 720,000, Mississauga is the sixth largest city in Canada and most populated suburb in Anglo-America. The city has only recently developed its own urban skyline, considering it was previously identified as a suburb of Toronto. Most of this development can be attributed to the former mayor, Hazel McCallion, who retired in 2014 after holding the position for 36 years.
Mississauga is considered one of the safest cities in Canada, which is one of the factors that has contributed to its explosive growth, in addition to having a strong economy, decent real estate sizes, good infrastructure, and proximity to Toronto. Actually, the city has welcomed many new immigrants, nearly doubling its population in the last 20 years. An estimated 47 percent of Mississauga population speaks a different mother tongue from English or French.
There are many different neighbourhoods where one can choose to settle down, with many young professionals preferring the City Centre, Cooksville, due to its proximity to the Civil Hall, the Square One Mall, the Central Library, the Living Arts Centre, and the GO transit – the province’s interregional public transit system.
Port Credit, which is referred to as the ‘Village on the Lake’ by Saugans, is a neighbourhood at the mouth of the Credit River (Lake Ontario north shore), with great access to multiple restaurants and shops, as well as apartments, high-rise condominiums, family neighbourhoods, and lakeside parks. Most people in Mississauga reside in Erin Mills, while most residents own homes in Lake View.
