In 1998, while operating RW McDowell Truck and Trailer Repair, RW started to dabble in the storage trailer business which eventually expanded into what became known today as A-1 Mobile Storage Service. Providing mobile container offices, storage containers and 53′ semi storage trailers to constructions sites and retail outlets has become our specialty. A small, over the road fleet of 53′ semi trailers is also offered by A-1 Mobile Storage Service.

A-1 Mobile Storage Service also maintains a complete fabrication shop at their Manchester, IA location, where we customize shipping containers to our customers’ specifications. The most popular modifications include roll up doors and walk in doors making for easier accessibility to the customers’ products.

As A-1 Mobile Storage Service celebrates their 21st year in business in 2019, the expansion continues around the Midwest with 12 relay yards spread across Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin. With containers currently placed in 17 states, there appears to be no place that A-1 will not go. With our dedicated group of employees you can be rest assured your containers will be “Where You Want It, When You Want It”.
