Need help in choosing the perfect storage space? Read on for our detailed tips below.
Factors to Consider Before Renting a Storage Space Unit
Self-storage facilities provide short- and long-term storage solutions for household, personal, and business items.
You may store your possessions in a self-storage facility whether you’re a small company owner keeping paperwork or a new homeowner waiting for renovations to be finished.
Aside from making sure the unit you rent is safe and secure, there are a few more self-storage space services to look at before you sign a contract:
- Accessibility: Is the facility open 24 hours a day, seven days a week? Make sure you have access to your items when you need them.
- Security: Locks, video surveillance, in-person surveillance, and security gates or doors all provide security for your valuables.
- Pricing: To get the most bang for your buck, ask about specials and online discounts, and make a note of any pricing fluctuation in the contract.
- Availability: If you want a certain unit size or type, be sure your storage facility has one available.
- Location: While a facility closer to a city may be more convenient, it may also be more expensive. Based on how frequently you require access to your unit, strike a balance between convenience and cost.
- Reviews: What current and previous consumers have to say counts. Any self-storage facility with obnoxious employees, robbery complaints, or one-star ratings should be crossed off your list.
What do you need when renting a storage space unit?
What are the requirements for renting a storage unit? Prepare to present some identification: in order to rent a storage container, you must produce a legitimate, government-issued form of identity. You’ll also be required to sign a storage unit agreement or contract (which you should read from beginning to finish!) and adhere to the regulations outlined in it.
Storage Space Costs
The cost of a storage unit is determined by the unit’s size and the length of time you want to keep your belongings there. Many self-storage space facilities offer month-to-month contracts, but signing up for a longer period might save you money.
The price of your storage space unit will also be determined by whether it is inside or outside, whether it has drive-up access, and whether you want climate control. A lot depends on where you are.
Transporting your items to Storage Space Units
While your car’s trunk capacity may be sufficient, we recommend taking advantage of complimentary truck rentals offered by some self-storage businesses. A truck rental allows you to transfer all of your bulky things in one load, reducing the amount of time (and stress) it takes to move into or out of your apartment.
Climate Controlled Storage Space Units
While temperature control benefits all of your things, it’s especially vital for items like clothes and furniture to avoid mold and mildew growth. Climate-controlled storage containers protect your most valuable items from severe heat, cold, and humidity.
Climate-controlled containers are more expensive than normal storage, but the extra expense is well worth it to ensure that temperatures and humidity do not fluctuate or fall significantly enough to harm your belongings.
We recommend storing the following products in climate-controlled storage:
- Furniture made of wood and leather
- Clothing/ Photos/ Artwork/ Electronics /Instruments
- Appliances for the home
Working in Storage units
Don’t utilize your storage container as an office, no matter how tempting it seems. Living or working in a storage unit is against the law and a breach of your lease agreement.
Your unit, on the other hand, may be used to store files and other business-related items. Furthermore, many storage facilities provide business centers on-site where you may work, print papers, and send goods. That’s a huge improvement to working in a dark, windowless cave!
Maximizing your storage space unit
Did you know that by properly packing your items, you may be able to rent a smaller storage unit? Knowing how to pack is one of the easiest ways to save money on storage unit prices.
Stack your belongings. High ceilings are common in storage units. Stackable containers and furnishings should be used to completely occupy the area. Dismantle large pieces of furniture. Remove chair and table legs to save space when stacking and storing furniture. Don’t leave any empty spots. To save space, fill dressers or wardrobes with smaller items. You don’t want to have to unpack your entire storage container every time you need anything. Allow for easy access to your items.
Prohibited items in Storage space units
Storage units are designed to keep items such as furniture, papers, and clothing in both the home and the workplace. They’re not made for poisonous, hazardous, or living things. Here are some instances of stuff you should not keep:
- Items that are flammable or combustible
- Hazardous substances
- Bug-attracting foods or things
- Things that are alive (e.g., plants, animals, humans)
Full Service Storage and Self Storage
Consider the following two categories of storage solutions when deciding what form of storage you require:
Full Service Storage
Customers of a full-service storage facility can take use of “valet-style” services. A full-service storage company’s idea is that they will pick up and deliver your items to the storage facility. Many full-service storage facilities also allow customers to request and schedule pick-ups and returns from their smartphones. Hiring a full-service storage business eliminates the need for the consumer to transport their belongings to the storage facility. Many full-service facilities will photograph and record your possessions as well. If you forget what’s in storage, all you have to do is glance at a photo or check your online inventory list.
Self-storage is without a doubt the most popular storage option. These facilities provide a safe, secure, and cost-effective method to store personal possessions as well as bigger objects like boats. Customers who use self-storage must transport their things to the storage unit themselves. When they want to take something out of storage, they do it themselves. Because self-storage services do not maintain track of what is inside a storage unit, customers need document their own goods. It’s also worth noting that self-storage is typically less expensive than full-service storage, making it more tempting to people on a budget.
What should you do to prepare your belongings for long-term storage?
Don’t just toss your belongings into a storage container at random. The greatest approach to preserve goods in prime condition for lengthy periods of time is to properly prepare them for storage. Here are some suggestions for preparing your items for long-term storage.
- Read up on the regulations and limitations – When it comes to using your storage unit, the storage company most likely has a set of regulations and limits. Before placing goods in storage, be sure you know what is and isn’t permitted. Fireworks, chemicals, and other potentially hazardous materials are not permitted inside a storage container. Anything combustible, as well as perishable food, is strictly prohibited.
- Take inventory of your possessions — If you want to store items for an extended period of time, you’ll need to compile a comprehensive inventory record of everything you own. Otherwise, you’ll forget what you put in storage (believe us). For insurance considerations, we recommend writing everything down and taking photographs. So you don’t lose track of your stuff, keep all of your pictures and an inventory list in one location.
- Clean objects before storing them – If necessary, wipe down and/or clean goods before storing them. Clothes should be washed and dried, cushions and furniture should be vacuumed, and boxes should be disinfected. Make sure nothing is moist; else, your possessions may become mildewed.
- Disassemble furniture — Before storing furniture for an extended period of time, ensure sure it is disassembled. Before installing some furniture pieces inside the unit, you may wish to wrap them in protective wrap (for example, headboards, table legs, and mirrors). As previously said, dismantling furniture frees up more floor space for boxes and other items. Consider how you can utilize a table or large piece of furniture to hold possessions if it doesn’t come apart. A dining table, for example, can be utilized as a box shelf.
- Pack everything extremely carefully – all smaller goods should be packed in strong cardboard boxes or transparent plastic containers. Plastic containers allow you to view what’s inside more easily, while cardboard boxes are less expensive — the option is yours. Pack your belongings as though you were making a genuine relocation. This entails the use of anything from bubble wrap and plastic wrap to packing paper and adhesive. Mirrors, televisions, and artwork should all be packed in the right boxes. This should keep your belongings from breaking both in transportation and in storage.
- Label everything — If you don’t want to lose track of what’s where, it’s critical that you label each box with the contents. Make sure the designated section of the box faces the front of the storage container and is labeled with a permanent marker or printed labels. Many people find that numbering each box and writing the contents on a separate sheet of paper works well for labeling. Box 1: ten everyday dishes; Box 2: a dozen wine glasses; Box 3: wedding picture albums; Box 4: books (mention particular titles); Box 5: Christmas tree ornaments, and so forth. Make a copy of the inventory list and keep it somewhere accessible.
- Finally, be smart about how you arrange stuff within the storage container. Mirrors and artwork, for example, should be hung vertically rather than horizontally. Fragile things should be put higher up in the box to avoid being crushed by heavier objects. Make sure to store goods you use the most regularly towards the front of the storage container so you can quickly access them. Items that you don’t use often should be stored at the rear. Consider putting a step stool inside your storage unit to make it simpler to reach high-up boxes and goods.
