Are Your Storage Lockers No Longer Cutting It? Consider Self Storage Instead!

If you live in a condo or apartment building your storage lockers might not provide you with enough room for the items that you need to store.  Often condo and apartment buildings include a storage locker with your rent, or sometimes they are provided through a lottery system.  However, when you add up all the belongings that you need to put in your storage locker you may quickly run out of space.

For example, some common items that people store in a storage locker include:

  • Bicycles
  • Skis
  • Golf Clubs
  • Tents
  • Camping gear
  • Christmas trees and decorations
  • Files
  • Seasonal clothes like winter jackets, boots

If you have a storage locker then you can already see the problem – these common items just won’t fit in the small storage lockers offered in standard condos and apartment buildings. You also don’t want to keep such belongings in your apartment or condo because it will only clutter up your living space and make your home seem smaller.  Instead, find a storage unit where you can store these items. When looking for a storage facility you will want to try to find one that is accessible and close to home, secure and affordable. Accessibility is an important consideration when it comes to a storage facility.  You want to find a place that is close to home and that is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week even on holidays so that you can gain access to your belongings whenever you need them. Security is another important factor when it comes to storage facilities.  You want to ensure that the storage company has suitable security to ensure your belongings are safe.  Some good security features to look for include alarm systems, video surveillance and electronically controlled gates. Of course affordability plays an important factor when it comes to a storage unit.  Ensure that the unit you rent is the right size and has the features you need.  Don’t sacrifice security or accessibility for price, but also ensure that you don’t spend more than you can afford. James Snow Parkway Self-Storage offers secure, affordable year-round storage to the Milton and Coldwater areas. With our 24-hour security and access you can rest assured your belongings will be safe and easily accessible whenever you need them.
