Four Mistakes to Avoid When Choosing Self-Storage:

At James Snow Parkway Self-Storage , we believe you should consider all the facts and features of a self-storage facility to make sure it is right for you before you make a decision. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about our facilities. Feel free to contact us , we'll be happy to answer your questions and concerns about choosing a self-storage facility.

  • Don't choose a location that is too far from your home or workplace. You want to be able to access your unit easily and it's more convenient if your storage unit is close to home, especially if you plan to visit it often
  • Don't choose a facility with limited hours. You never know when you will need to access your storage unit, so try to find a facility that is open at times which are convenient to you. If you work odd hours or shift work you may want to search for self-storage that you can access 24/7
  • Don't choose a facility with poor security. Any storage company that doesn't have 24/7 video surveillance, is poorly lit at night, doesn't have security gates or staff on-site will be a prime target for vandals and thieves. Ensure that the self-storage location you choose has several security and fire prevention features to protect your valuables
  • Don't choose a self-storage company based solely on price. The cheapest facility may not be the best deal. Weigh the price against the location, hours and security and then make your decision
