If you’re like me, then you have a lot of stuff. And if you’re like me, then you don’t have enough room to store all of your stuff. This is where renting a storage unit comes in handy. If you are in the process of moving, or simply need to free up some extra space in your home, renting a storage unit is a great option.
But with so many storage units to choose from, how do you know which one is right for you? Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect storage unit for your needs.

1- Decide on the type of storage that fits your needs:

When you decide to rent a storage unit you will have two options to choose from: A full-service storage facility where the company offers to pick up your belongings right from your house and store them safely in their warehouse.
Another option is self-storage where you have to deliver your belongings to the warehouse. This shouldn’t be an issue if the warehouse is near you or if you have time for the ride.

2- Choose the storage size that fits your needs:

Storage companies offer a variety of storage sizes to fit all the needs. If you don’t need much space for storage you can rent a small unit and keep the cost low. How to know what storage fits your needs?
Make a list of all the items that you want to store now and probably in the near future. Ask the experts at the storage company for their advice. Some companies may also offer a visit to your house to give you a better estimation of your storage needs.

3- Choose the right location:

We always recommend that you pick a storage location near your house. This will save you time and effort \when you need to access your stored items or when you need to add new ones.

4- Check the reputation:

Make your homework before you select the storage facility. Check for reviews on the internet, ask your friends, ask the people in the area. It’s better to spend time researching the company than making a wrong decision that you will regret in the future.

5- Decide if you need climate control:

Some storage facilities offer climate control options for special items. Depending on what you plan to store you might need a climatized storage facility.

6- Purchase your own lock:

We recommend that you purchase your own lock for the storage facility. This way you make sure no one will ever touch your items.

7- Make a list and take photos:

Keep an inventory list of the items stored in the storage unit and take photos of all your items. This is useful for you to know where are your items stored and for insurance purposes.

8- Always insure your items:

Sometimes insurance policy is optional when renting a storage unit. We always recommend that you buy an insurance policy for your items for complete peace of mind in case of fire, theft, fluid, or anything else.

9- Review the payment policy:

Read well the terms and conditions and payment policy before you move your items. Check for hidden or additional fees and make sure everything is clear before you sign.

10- visit the storage facility before you make your decision:

If the storage facility fits all your needs and you find that this is the best decision for you, we always recommend that you make a personal visit to the warehouse before you make the final decision. Pay attention to the details: 

  • security and access control
  • cleanness of the warehouse
  • staff availability and friendliness
  • Opening hours
  • convenient space to park your car or truck when loading and unloading

In conclusion, renting a storage unit can be a great way to declutter your home and organize your belongings. By following the tips in this article, you can find a storage unit that fits your needs and make the most of your storage space.
