5 Tips forpicking the right storage unit

  •  
    1. Location! Location! Location!

    Though you always want to prioritize quality over proximity, having a storage unit that is easily accessible is always nice – especially if you’re frequently pulling things in and out of storage.

  •  
    2. Determine the size you need

    This may be one of the first things you should determine when looking at storage facilities. You never want to be short on storage room, but at the same time, you don’t want to pay for larger unit if you’re not utilizing all the space.

  •  
    3. Determine the type of unit you need

    What are you going to be storing? Do the items need to be temperature controlled? Do you need to store a vehicle, car, boat, or RV? If you have particular storage needs, there are units available that can accommodate them.

  •  
    4. Factor in amenities and security

    Figure out what’s important to you. Do you need to have the premises monitored 24 hours a day? Do you need 24 hour access? Having a unit at a secure storage facility can help you have peace of mind that your valuables are safe.

  •  
    5. Read the agreements and paperwork

    Read the fine print. Not all contracts and agreements are made equal. Make sure you’re getting into a contract for the time period that you need. A contract that is shorter than you need and you may be out of a unit. A contract that is longer than you need may have you paying for a storage unit you don’t use.
