How to Choose Your Storage Unit

Determine your storage needs.

What exactly are you storing? It’s an important question to ask yourself, as it will determine which type of storage unit you should get. If you’re storing sensitive items such as photo albums or leather furniture, perhaps a climate-controlled unit would work best. If it’s valuable items, you’ll definitely want to choose a storage facility with 24/7 security and video monitoring. Once you know what you’re storing, you can make a more informed decision.

Consider the location.

It’s always a good idea to choose a storage facility that’s close to where you live, especially if you plan on driving to your unit several times a month. However, don’t pick the closest one based on convenience alone. Sometimes driving an extra five miles means getting more bang for your buck, such as better office hours or customer service.

Use the Storage Unit Types and Size Guide.
