Finding a storage facility is not difficult, but you should shop around. There can be a big difference in rates and added hidden fees.
Know your storage needs. Estimate how much space you will require. Feel free to use the self storage calculator to help you. Or the storage facility can recommend the size unit you may need.
Usually dry storage units are suitable for most household goods, unless you have something extremely sensitive to a little atmospheric moisture, cold or heat. Then you might consider climate control. Climate control, however, may be considerably more expensive.
All storage facilities should have secure units, but additional security can include fencing, good lighting, surveillance cameras, and the presence of a resident manager.
As you search for a storage facility: ask about discounts, introductory specials or discounts for paying in advance for long-term storage.
How often will you need to access the unit? Do you need it mainly during the day? Many people prefer to be able to drive up to their units where they can unload witht the least amount of effort.
There's a storage solution for every situation.
