4 Tips to Find the Perfect Storage Space 

Start your search for a convenient storage unit with these useful suggestions:

  1. Decide the type of storage you need. Your first step is more than just finding the perfect size of unit. The kind of storage facilities available include indoor, outdoor, and specialty. For example, you may want the ease of being able to organize your area even if it is raining outside. If so, an indoor space is a better choice. However, outdoor spaces are great for driving right up and unloading or loading. Another option is a specialty facility for those that have wine collections or antiques. These facilities are tailored for the delicate nature of goods to be stored inside.

  2. Research the facilities in your area. The easiest decision may not be the best choice. It is easy to go to your nearest self-storage facility and sign your name on the dotted line. Resist the urge. First, take inventory of all locations near your home. Then check reviews and look at the ones that have the highest ratings. Look at their gate hours vs. their office hours. It doesn’t pay to rent a unit near your home if their office hours are not convenient for you. It may pay to drive ten more minutes to get what you want.

  3. Visit and ask questions. Go to your shortlisted site for a visit. Ask to see a unit in the size you would like to rent. You can ask about any specials, what happens if you miss or are late on a payment, the facility hours and any unique stipulations. 

  4. Make notes and then make your decision. Gather all your research and look over what you have. Which facility fits your needs in convenience and access? Once you make the determination, reach out to the best facility for you and sign up!
