Frank and Monte Monroe, a father-son team, opened the Mobile Attic in April of 2005. Frank was recently retired from WestPoint Stevens after 37 years as an accountant and Monte was employed at Synovus in the Equipment Leasing division. One of Monte's customer's at Synovus was The Mobile Attic, whose home office was located in Elba, AL.
The Monroe's had considered many business opportunities in the past, but saw portable storage as an exciting new industry and felt there was a need for portable storage due to the lack of any such company in the Columbus, Phenix City, Lagrange, and Valley area. Another attractive feature of the Mobile Attic concept was the high quality of the containers and the use of the common roll back truck for safe and secure transport of the Mobile Attics.
The Monroe's focus of the business is always on the customer and treating customers how they would like to be treated with fair pricing, on time deliveries, and careful attention to securing and safely handling customers contents packed in the Mobile Attics.
