Whether you are downsizing, waiting to upgrade, moving out or moving on, there are many reasons for a storage space. The storage unit business is a huge industry and many people gain great benefits from it. Whether you are looking for a storage space for the first time or you’ve used storage solutions before, there are things to consider and things you need to know to make the best decision for you and your storage needs no matter how long you need it for.
1. Consider what you are storing
Are you looking for storage for a boat, jet skis or a car? Are you storing furniture, seasonal clothing, or items from an estate? Even consider if you are storing residential or commercially. Not just people who are moving use storage solutions. Offices and commercial services also use storage space, so make sure that the storage unit you choose can fit your needs. Affordable Self Storage offers both residential and commercial storage services.
2. Consider the storage space that you need
You obviously don’t want to book too much space, but you also don’t want to book too little space. By booking the smallest space, you may figure that you will be saving money, but that may also mean that you have to stack your items on top of one another, which could lead to scratches and damages to valuables that you don’t want to damage. Use the Storage Calculator on our website to find out how much space you need.
3. Consider the amount of service you need and the hours
Some storage businesses have gate access 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and others do not. Most Affordable Self Storage locations 24/7 gate access from Sunday to Monday, which means your unit will be accessible to you whenever you need it!
4. Consider the security features that the storage business offers
