To avoid having to travel a great distance to reach your storage, it is best to choose the most convenient self-storage near you. While searching for a local self storage facility in your neighborhood, you will want to take into account a few things, including price, location, opening hours, safety and extra features.
Your storage location will be a major factor in your decision. The location of your storage facility is very important.
You should consider the price, but not as your sole factor. To find the best balance, you need to consider both the cost and the available features. Choose a location that provides the maximum number of amenities (like high-level security) while staying within your financial budget. As you consider price, also think about the type of agreement you will be signing. Do you have to give a certain amount of notice to end the contract before it is terminated? Do you have to be concerned about any fees or hidden conditions? Does the cost to rent your unit increase as time goes on? Consider all this when deciding on the cost of your facility.
Search for self-storage that is open at times that fit your schedule. Find a location that has hours that are convenient for your work schedule. You might find that the 24/7 facility is more expensive, but it’s worth considering your schedule. It is fine to have a facility that’s open until 8 pm if, for example, you only work Monday – Thursday from 7 am – 3 pm. This will give you plenty of access time when you want your possessions.
A self-storage unit’s security should be one of your top priorities. You will want to be sure that your things are kept secure and safe. There are various types of security measures available, depending upon the location.
An enclosed area
Electronic gates for security access
Employees on the site
It is important to have a well-lit space in order to prevent vandalism
The safety of your storage unit should be a priority. In order to ensure your safety you can look at obtaining a tenant’s insurance policy on your unit.
