Sorrento Valley is a city in San Diego, California. It is nestled between Del Mar, La Jolla, and Mira Mesa. Sorrento Valley is just 15 miles from downtown San Diego and the Lindbergh Field Airport. We provide storage container rental services from our Portable Storage San Diego location. The valley is between the Interstate 5 freeway to the West and the Interstate 805 freeway to the East, just South of where these two freeways split.
Sorrento Valley’s economy is based on industrial work in biotechnology, manufacturing, and scientific research. This is a large reason why there are many portable storage containers in Sorrento Valley. Many bright minds from the University of San Diego California fuel the market of scientific research in SV.

They want to ensure that the new developments for this field are aesthetically pleasing for residents. Sorrento Valley is making the restoration and preservation of the Carroll Creek Wildlife Corridor and the Los Angeles Penosquitos lagoon a priority. This project will be funded by the city of San Diego, and the state of California, as well as donations from private sources.
Public Transportation Plans
Sorrento Valley also wants to improve public transportation further to ease traffic congestion as it adds more industrial development. This effort will demand portable storage along with container rentals. The San Diego Express Rail System has a coaster station in Sorrento Valley. The coaster has 7 other stops in cities around the county. The Sorrento Valley coaster station offers a shuttle service to the employment center, the VA hospital, and UCSD. The coaster system is secured through the year 2038 due to the public vote. This plan includes some funding for track upgrades.
