How do you choose the right self storage facility depends on your current needs. Are you a business looking to store some inventory or how about a vehicle? Are you going to storing items for personal use or maybe a family member’s possessions that has recently passed away? Whatever the reason for needing storage, there is a storage facility out there just right for your needs.
Let’s start with the concerns that most people have about storage. Number one you want your belongings to be safe and you want yourself to be safe while you are at the facility. Check out what type of security the facility has. Does it have enough lighting to make sure you are not going to be left in the dark after the sun goes down? You want to make sure that the storage facility extremely bright outside lighting, as bright as an airport runway if possible. Extremely bright lighting also tends to run off any type of criminal activity. You also want to make sure that the facility has security cameras and make sure that they are recording 24hrs a day. Gate access is another security concern. Make sure that the gate has shut off hrs i.e. 6am to 10pm; this is a very good security feature as only the tenants would know that the gate shuts off at a certain time. A criminal may be banking on the fact that they will be able to follow a tenant out of the property late in the evening but to their surprise they would be stuck on the property until the next morning. Another feature to notice about the gate is to make sure you have to have a code to get IN and OUT of the property. The biggest security feature is of course the staff, so get to know the employees well at you self storage facility as they are the ones who keep an eye out on the property.
Next topic to take a look at is the location of the storage facility. You do want to make sure that the storage facility is in a decent area and is going to serve your needs well. Storage of a company vehicle is a great reason to look at the location and can save you a lot of money each day. If your company is located on the outskirts of town then having a vehicle that only make trips or deliveries in town parked in town then it could save your company quite a bit of gas cost each and every day. Also it doesn’t make much since to have all of your business inventory located way outside of your customer base. If all of your deliveries are in a certain town, then put your inventory in a storage unit in that tow
n and save gas, wear and tear, and employee time of driving back and forth to get inventory. Besides having a business, you may have personal reasons for the location of your storage unit for example do you want it near your home or work? Probably the location will matter on where you will be the most when you are accessing the unit.
