What To Consider Before Renting A Storage Unit

Are you dealing with “stuff” overload? Have you run out of space in your garage, basement and attic? It might be time to rent a storage unit. Transferring some of your belongings to a storage unit can go a long way towards opening up more space in your home. Before signing on the dotted line here are some things you need to consider before renting a storage unit:

Different Facilities

Although the sizes may be the same, not all storage unit facilities are like. You owe it to yourself to visit a few storage units to see which is the best fit for your situation. Not only do you want to take in the size of the unit and rates but also security measures, cleanliness, temperature control and customer service. If you’re put off by any one of those things, then you should consider moving on to another facility.

Security

Security should be a major concern when renting a storage unit. Too often, these facilities are vulnerable to attacks by burglars and a lot of the times, they are “inside jobs.” Just because you have a padlock on your unit doesn’t mean it’s completely safe. A good pair of bolt cutters can make short work of any padlock. Cylinder locks that have no exposed hasp can’t be cut by bolt cutters. Some storage units have security alarms on each unit. That means only a person with access code can get into the unit. You also should check out the video feeds. Any facility that doesn’t take security serious is not a place that you want to put your stuff.

Double Check the Rates

Most every storage facility is going to offer great rates to get you in the door. But lo and behold, those rates end up rising after a few months. Read the fine print and find out just how long you get to keep that great rate and what the jump is expected. Whatever the answer is it should be in writing. If you can get a written contract, then move on.
