Find and Rent a Storage Unit That’s Right For You

Published on 1/4/2019

Finding the right storage facility for your self-storage needs can be frustrating. There are so many things that you should consider that go beyond simply the cost of the available units. Make sure that you take everything into consideration before making your choice.

It’s no longer a matter of opening up the phone book and checking out the listings to find storage facilities. Even if it were, it would be frustrating to call one after the other, only to be told that they had nothing available, or that their access times are not convenient for you. However, now it’s simply a matter of a few clicks and you can have all of the information you need at your fingertips to make the right choice. With a simple search you can find what every storage facility in your area has available, how much each unit type costs, and in most cases you can move your belongings that very same day. Once you’ve found all of the options in your area, here are the questions you need to ask before picking one:

  • What are the storage rates for each unit?
  • Is the location convenient? Is the location safe?
  • Is there adequate lighting for when I access a unit at night?
  • Will it be easy to maneuver a vehicle on the property to get to my storage unit?
  • Is there adequate security, including a fence and a gate?
  • Are there any additional features and options, such as online booking? Do they provide online bills and statements or automatic payments?

Make sure to factor in the answers to all of these questions so that you can make the self-storage choice that’s most convenient for you.
