Factors To Consider Before Hiring A Self Storage Facility


While deciding to move to a new place, you need to take a lot of decisions. There is also some stuff that you may need to keep in the storage while moving. For this, you require a storage company that can take care of your belongings while moving and make your move a hassle free experience. But choosing the right company that suits your requirement is not as easy as it looks like. There are certain factors that you need to consider while choosing the right storage company.

1) Location – Before choosing a self-storage unit you must always remember to choose a facility that is close to your new place, and is easily accessible from major roads so that it can make things convenient for you.

2) Unit Size – You must try to choose a storage unit that is large enough to hold all your surplus possessions, and gives you enough room. The smallest size units are usually 5’ by 5’ that can only hold a few boxes or small bedroom furniture. So you should always try to look for the larger units that are 10’ by 40’, and large enough to hold most of the contents of a 4 bedroom house.

3) Security guards on premise – You must always choose such facilities that have security guards on the premise, so that you know the goods are in secured hands.

4) Insurance – It’s always a good idea to ascertain that you have adequate insurance coverage for your belongings. You must understand what exactly the insurance covers, whether the coverage is for replacement value or whether it applies to your storage unit items.

Technological advancement has enabled service providers to improve their services. However, these are not even required if you need a simple self storage container for storing not so valuable belongings. So always choose a facility based on your requirement!
