Self storage facilities, in essence, are versatile enough to fulfil a wide variety of purposes for anyone that needs storage space. Ranging from low-cost storage container compounds to state-of-the-art facilities that offer the very best in storage features. Choosing the best self storage facility that suits your needs can be a challenge as there are many options to choose from and different factors to consider.
Here are four tips for choosing the best self storage facility.
1. Decide what you need to store
The types of items you wish to store play a big part in determining what type of storage facility will be best and most suitable for you. For example, if you plan to store valuable items, antiques or goods that are sentimental consider a storage facility that offers high security levels and features such as CCTV, staffed during operating hours and secured locked units.
2. Take all added features into consideration
Although features such as 24-hour access, gated premises, CCTV security cameras may seem commonplace, they can definitely prove to be an investment worth making later on. Check out exactly what features you’ll be getting for your storage rental payment and compare against the competition in the area.
3. Convenience and location
Finding a storage facility that is convenient for you will prove invaluable in the long run and will save you time and hassle. If you think you will need to re-visit your storage unit frequently to retrieve items then consider your journey time and pick a storage facility that is conveniently located, ideally just out of town away from congestion.
4. Online reviews are your best friend
With the increasing use of the internet, companies are now more reliant than ever on online customer reviews. It goes without saying that a storage company with a positive reputation backed by good reviews is likely to be a better option than one with poor or mixed reviews. Also take a few minutes to visit their website to learn about the features of their service.
To summarise, you should take time to do your research and consider all the factors for choosing the best self storage facility for you.
