What to Expect When You’re Storing Your Belongings

When looking for a local self storage facility to store goods, you will want to ask several questions. The more research you do, the more likely you are to find a facility that can accommodate all of your needs.  We will cover the things you as a customer should do before selecting the facility in which you elect to place your belongings. 
                One of the most important things to consider is location. You don’t want to be dragging your belongings up stairs, or have to drive 10 miles just to get one thing.  One would be surprised by the amount of self-storage facilities that are out there, as well as how different each can be. 
                Once you pick a location, visiting the storage unit beforehand is highly recommended .You may even want to visit more than one!  When looking at properties, make sure they have a gated keypad entry, security cameras, and ease of access to the property.  Some storage facilities have a dumpster for their tenants to use, as well as other amenities like moving carts.  If you don’t like what you see, or feel as if your belongings won’t be well taken care of, you may want to visit another facility.  Storage facility operators also highly recommend looking at the space before you rent it.  Even though you may be able to picture the dimensions in your head, when you look at the space it helps you get a better idea of how your belongings will fit into the unit.  Also, the storage unit may not be in a convenient location. You can always ask the manager if there are other units available in that size in a more convenient location if you don’t like what you see. 
                The next thing you should consider is how long you will be storing your belongings. If you are planning on storing over the warm summer months, you may want to consider a unit that is heated and cooled.  This will save those precious items that are sensitive to the warm temperatures. This is definitely helpful here in Nashville, Tennessee during the summer.  If you are only planning on storing for a short period, some items may be fine in a drive up unit.  A general rule of thumb is, if you feel comfortable keeping it in your garage, it will be ok in a standard storage unit.
                There are a few other things to consider when choosing a storagecloset. These are move-in specials, late fees, and gate hours.  Some facilities have move in specials that are used to entice the customer to go with their company because it’s cheaper.  As in many other businesses, just because a unit is less expensive doesn’t make it a better fit.  You will also want to check with the storage facility about their policies and procedures when it comes to late fees.  Just like a mortgage or rent payment most storage closets have a grace period of when the rent is due.  Make sure you carefully read their procedures and acknowledge what happens if you are ever delinquent on your rent.  Gate hours are another thing to look at.  If you are you a landscaping business that begins working before dawn, or are storing a boat, you  may want to pick up your equipment or boat in the wee hours of the morning.  You will probably need 24 hour access.  Make sure to ask your facility operator if they offer 24 hour access, and if there is an additional cost.  Most facilities have reasonable gate hours, considering most people don’t need to get anything out of their units at midnight. However, StorPlace Self Storage has the longest hours of access of any storage facility, from 6 AM to 10 PM, seven days a week. You will want to check into all of these aspects before choosing a facility to store with. The more research you do, the better you will feel about storing your goods.
