Feeling cluttered? You’re not alone. The average household in the United States has 300,000 objects in it. Investing in a storage space to keep extra or seasonal possessions is a great way to save space inside of your home. Before you make a decision about where to store your belongings, be sure to consider these factors.
Cleanliness: To keep your belongings free of dust, dirt, and other debris, make sure that the staff keeps the storage units clean. Check their pest management policies to keep rodents and insects from damaging your items. Ask how often they perform cleanliness checks and how they respond in the event of potentially damaging weather.
Security: Skipping security could invite anyone to steal your possessions. Make sure that the company has an updated 24-hour security system that they keep up with regularly. Having a manager at the facility is also a perk, as they will be there during the day to address any problems.
Climate Control: The inside of storage units can get too warm or too cold, potentially damaging the contents. Climate control storage can prevent these problems, keeping the environment inside the unit as temperate as possible. If you have any specialty goods with specific temperature needs, be sure to talk to the storage management.
Customer Service: The storage company you choose is in charge of your items, so it is important for them to be available to handle any problems you may have. When communicating with facility staff, be aware of their timeliness, willingness to accommodate, and ability to give thorough information.
Choosing a storage facility is a long-term decision, so be sure to select carefully. The best way to learn about a company is to visit their business in person. This way, you can ask questions and inspect a storage unit yourself. Be sure to know all of your expectations before you begin your search and that you ask plenty of questions during your visit.
