Top 5 Factors to Consider When Choosing Your Storage Rental
Think about these factors before deciding on the right storage facility:
- Consider Security – Ask questions about the security precautions, procedures, and measures that are in place at your chosen storage facility.
- Ask About Accessibility – Storing something you might need on the weekend? Ask about the hours of operation for the storage facility to determine if the items you are storing and policy of the storage space are a good match.
- Be Mindful of Conditions – Beloved items that are making the move into a storage unit may need careful consideration. Will they be susceptible to changes from moisture, dust, or fluctuations in hot and cold temperatures? Special packing precautions may be necessary for certain objects like photos, electronics, and other valuables.
- Size is Crucial – If you have abnormally large machinery or just a small amount of belongings to store, you’ll want to ensure that the facility will be able to accommodate them. Contact the storage experts at 5A Rent-A-Space for an estimate on the right size storage unit for your needs.
- Think About Timing – Your needs will be different depending on the length of time you need the storage space. If you have a brief gap between residences while moving to a new house, ask about short-term rental units. Long-term additional space can be arranged, but be sure to communicate this and all your storage needs to your storage counselors at the outset of your storage rental agreement.
