When you put your possessions into storage, whether it's for the short- or long-term, you want to know that they'll be safe. That's why it's important to pick a trustworthy and reliable storage provider. But what makes a storage unit provider the best choice? Here are some things to look for.
The provider you choose should offer a few key amenities, so you know your items will be safe. There should be plenty of amenities and any entrance point should have an electronic gate that can be opened with a code. The entire property should be enclosed within a fence. Look for a well-maintained facility, as this usually indicates that the provider cares about keeping your items safe, and if anything feels off about the amenities that the facility offers, go with your gut. Risking the safety of your possessions isn't worth it!
Think about what you need to store. Large items like furniture, boats, and RVs may need specialty storage. Make sure that the provider offers the kind of storage you need. And a provider that offers lots of different-sized units can be helpful if, down the road, you find that you need to store more than you were expecting.
A great storage provider will provide you with plenty of convenient locations so that you can choose one that fits your needs. They may have multiple locations, making it even easier if you need to move within the area. It's also important to find a provider that is open during hours that work with your schedule. Many storage providers will provide access to their self-storage units 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
A great storage provider will be there to answer any questions you have and will have someone there to help you on-site during regular business hours. They can help you review a contract, give you a tour of the facility, or take your payment in person. Look for a provider that offers online bill pay so that you don't always have to travel to the facility to make your monthly payment.
