How to Choose a Storage Rental Facility
Knowing how to choose a storage rental facility can help save you time and money in the long run. At Protec Storage, we understand how important it is to choose the right storage facility for you and your belongings. That is why our team has put together some simple tips to help you choose the best storage rental facility possible.
1. Consider Storage Unit Sizes
Since storage units are available in a wide range of different sizes, it is important to think about what items you plan on storing and how long you plan on storing them. Before picking a storage unit for your belongings, make sure to determine how much space you will need by:
- Creating a list of the items you plan to store
- Determining which items you will need access to while they are in storage
- Measuring and estimating the collective size of the items you plan to store
- Accounting for extra space for ventilation and ease of access
2. Determine if You Need a Climate-Controlled Unit
Climate-controlled units are designed to keep the temperature and humidity within a specific range, depending on the climate your items need to be stored in. Consider taking the time to research—based on the value of your belongings—if renting a climate-controlled unit is in your best interests. In most cases, climate-controlled units can be more expensive but may be worth the cost over time.
3. Think About Location
Make sure to take into consideration the location of the storage rental facility. If you think that you will need to access your belongings on a regular basis, choosing a facility with a convenient location might be the best option for you; however, if you do not need to access your belongings regularly, having the facility located close by will not matter as much.
4. Look into Security
Make sure to choose a reputable storage rental facility with state-of-the-art security, including video surveillance, perimeter fencing, security locks, and electronic access. A reputable facility should also have a knowledgeable team that is willing to answer your questions and provide you with a tour of the facility.
