How to Find Self Storage Close to Home

It only takes a little research on your part to find self-storage options. A quick internet search or look in your local yellow pages will show you that there are many options to choose from – often times too many!  In addition to using Google, there are a number of other online search methods you can use to conduct research on self-storage, including:

  • Twitter
  • Facebook
  • Local business directories

A quality self-storage facility will be easy to find, and may even have a website with specific information such as pricing, security options and unit sizes.

Once you have figured out what self-storage companies are in your area you will want to consider which one to choose.  In regards to location, you want to find something close to home or work, so that accessing your belongings is easy and convenient.  In addition to location, you also want to consider:

  • Hours – will you have access to the facility 24/7? Is it open on holidays?
  • Security – what security features are included with the basic storage fees?  Do you have to pay extra for additional security features?
  • Access – will you be the only one with a key to your storage unit?  Is the storage unit on street level or will you have to use an elevator or stairs to reach it?
  • Size – what size of units are available?
  • Flexibility – is the facility flexible about giving notice and moving your belongings in and out?
  • Climate-controlled – are climate controlled units available for storing your electronic equipment or other temperature sensitive belongings?
  • Indoor/Outdoor Units – are outdoor units available for vehicles such as your boat or RV and if so, will these outdoor units be maintained during winter months?
  • Staff – are staff on-site in case there are any problems?

There are a number of factors to consider when looking for a self-storage unit.  The internet is a great place to start, and a quick search in your area is likely to return too many results.  Once you have a basis, you need to weed through your results to find a location that is close to home or work, and that suits your individual storage needs, life-style and schedule.

Of course ensure that the storage facility you go with is secure and will keep your valuables safe.
