How To Select Optimal Self-Storage

April 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 161

Self-storage is a competitive field with many companies offering self-storage. Modern apartments and offices are sleek and elegant but they are not very roomy, so self-storage is required. However, before you start storing your items, take these factors into account.

  • Location: Make sure that the storage facility is close to you so that you can conveniently access it. Nevertheless, if you are storing items that you will rarely, if ever, need, you can use a remote facility.
  • Area: As you know the nature of the items that you want to store, you should estimate the amount of space required. If you are unable to assess the requisite amount of space, ask a storehouse expert for help. Even if you have very bulky items, you can maximize even a small storage space. Keep in mind that everything should be accessible, do not stack things and leave an aisle for ease of movement.
  • Timing: Make sure that you know the exact timings of your storage facility. Usually, storage facilities have a 24 hour policy, but some facilities have specific timings. Even if the facility has specific timing, ask them if they can accommodate you somehow; at times, they charge a fee for access after their timings.
  • Security: One of the most important characteristics of self-storage is their level of security. While storing priceless items, look for facilities that provide maximum security.
  • Temperature Control and Damp Reflectors: Make sure that your self-storage unit has adequate measures to prevent dampness especially if your region is known for its humidity. Also, keep in mind that the storage should be neither too hot nor too cold. You do not want your items to become very hot, as they may be damaged such as photographs/undeveloped film. Similarly, cold could mean that ice will form leading to melting which will inevitably lead to dampness. Metal items like tools could rust if there is too much humidity. Even wood can become cracked due to temperature. Therefore, chose your storage units wisely. Cutting cost on these units may later result in to a greater loss - avoid that!
  • Centrality of the Facility: Make sure that the facility that you are looking for, is centrally located. A unit on the outskirts of town will pose problems for you. There are some storage facilities located on highways but these are not convenient for most people, other than those who frequently travel to other cities.
