Renting a storage unit: You should read this!

Most people end up accumulating a lot of stuff throughout their lives. Sometimes it can get a bit too much; to the point that stuff has to be placed somewhere else. Self storage units are a great way of getting extra secure space away from home. If you are thinking of renting a storage unit you should read this article for some tips and help.

Get yourself the right sized unit

When choosing a unit, you’ll want to make sure that there’s enough room for your goods to be kept safe and free from damage. Picking a unit that’s too small will lead to your things getting damaged from being crammed into a tight space for long periods of time. On the other hand you also don’t want to get a unit that’s too big as bigger units tend to be more expensive. There are many different sized storage units on offer at storage facilities ranging from smaller 25 sq.ft and 50 sq.ft rooms up to 100 sq.ft and 150 sq.ft garage sized units.

Reviews and reputation

Do your research and have a look around to see what storage companies are in the local area. Look at online reviews they have received and make time to check them out in person before committing. Have other people you know used the storage company and would they recommend them? Gather as much information as you can.

Security and access

The safety of your belongings is a top priority. Consider what security measures are in place at the storage facility you choose. Most places have PIN code access control and CCTV systems in operation. Also take a look at what access arrangements they offer as there may be certain times when you can access your storage unit.


Self storage units are a great choice to make when you are running out of space at home. Renting a self storage unit may seem pretty straightforward, but there are some things that you should know about before you rent one.
