Choosing Storage Units

When you are choosing storage units there are a number of factors to take into consideration.  You want to think about location, accessibility, size, and security included with the cost of the unit.

Location It is important to find a storage unit that is close to home or work.  Storage units that are located on major routes or intersections are also a good idea so that you can pick items up and drop them off on your way to or from the cottage or vacation.  If you choose a storage location that is too far away or is inconvenient to reach then it will make your storage experience less satisfying. Accessibility Accessibility is another important factor to consider when choosing a storage unit.  You want to find a facility that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week as well as on holidays.  This will be most convenient for you because you can access your belongings whenever you need to. Size When determining the size of storage unit you will want to consider all the items you plan to store as well as giving yourself room to walk around in order to access your boxes and files within the storage unit.  Most storage facilities have storage calculators that you can use to determine the right size of unit for your needs. Security It is always important that you choose a unit that is safe and secure.  You want to ensure that your items and valuables will be safe.  Inquire as to the types of security features offered at the storage facility.  Some common features include:

  • 24/7 video surveillance
  • On site security staff who conduct facility checks
  • Motion sensors
  • Alarm systems
  • Electronically controlled gates

Of course, you want to weigh the options that are included with your unit with the cost and make a wise decision that will allow you to get the most for your money without sacrificing your budget.  If you do your homework choosing storage units isn’t that difficult.
