A Guide To Some Things Available At Self-Storage Facilities

Posted on: 16 May 2022

Self-storage facilities give you many options so you can find the right storage space for your purposes. Also, they can offer you other helpful services that can help you with things like packing and moving. It's important to keep in mind that the storage facilities will each have their own way of doing things and can offer their customers different options. With that in mind, this article will go over some self-storage options and services you may find available to you when you have storage needs: 

Many storage unit sizes are there to choose from

One of the first things you want to be aware of is there are a lot of sizes available. If you just need to store your refrigerator or a few boxes, then a small unit should work. However, if you want to store your boat or RV, then you will need one of their larger units. Self-storage facilities can accommodate all your needs. 

Inside and outside units are often available

If you are going to be putting most of your belongings into storage, then you might want to go in the unit and go through them often. If this is the case, then an inside unit with climate control will more than likely be available and would be best. Also, climate controlled units are best for things like furniture, artwork, and other items that shouldn't be exposed to humidity and high or low temperatures. However, if you have something like an RV or a trailer to store, then an outside unit you can pull into with ease will be best. Most facilities offer both types to cater to different needs. 

Packing supplies are available

If you still need to pack the items you are putting in storage, then most of the facilities will have an area where they display the different packing supplies you can purchase directly from them. This can make things more convenient, and it also allows you to purchase boxes in the same sizes, which makes stacking them easier and safer. You can even purchase a new high-quality lock for your storage unit directly from the facility. 

Moving rentals are on hand

When you need to move your things, you may need more than the vehicle you have to transport them in. Also, you might need a furniture dolly and smaller moving dollies. Some self-storage facilities do have rental trucks and moving equipment you can rent right from them. Since you will be returning to the same palace where you are moving your things into, this is especially convenient.


Storing Birthday Gifts

My mom recently celebrated her 60th birthday. Many of her close friends and family members dined with her at a local restaurant on this special day. At this time, my dear mom received numerous birthday presents. Unfortunately, she doesn’t have the space in her home to store them all. However, she can’t bear to get rid of them. Thankfully, she can safely house them in a rented storage unit. Do you struggle to find space in your home to store presents or other belongings you just don't need on a regular basis? Perhaps you’ve regretted disposing of gifts or items in the past. On this blog, I hope you will discover the benefits of placing your items used less often in a storage unit where you can treasure them forever. Enjoy!
