How to Choose a Storage Unit

If you’re planning on downsizing your home, then you may end up with a lot of furniture and other belongings that won’t fit in your new place. If there are things that you want to keep instead of donating or selling, then you should rent out a storage unit. The following are a few tips for choosing the right storage unit for you.

  • Get more than enough space – Whether you just have a few pieces of furniture and a couple of boxes or you have a ton of stuff you need to store, make sure that you get a unit that has more than enough space. You’ll want to have space that you can keep clear so that you can walk in and get anything that you want to take out.
  • Consider climate-controlled units – If you have any items that are temperature sensitive, then you’ll need to rent an indoor climate-controlled unit as opposed to an outdoor garage-style unit.
  • Don’t just pick a unit based on location – A storage unit located near you may be more convenient, but it doesn’t mean it’s better. Make sure that the storage company is reputable and that they have good security. Check reviews online to see what previous customers thought of their storage units before making a decision.
  • Look at the gate hours – Different storage unit facilities have different gate hours. If you want to be able to access your storage at certain times, be sure to pay attention to what the gate hours are.
