Best Tips On Self-Storage

Best Tips On Self-Storage

If you have heaps of stuff piled all over your house you might want to think of self-storage. It’s perfectly okay for you to hoard all of your things but you should probably give yourself some breathing room around the house.

When looking for self storage facilities near you, the best way to find a good storage facility is by talking to your friends and neighbors, and asking them if they have used any storage facilities lately. If they have, then ask them a series of questions about the self storage facility so that you can understand how it works. You might ask them about price, security, storage capacity, agreements, and liability.

If you don’t have any friends or family members that use self-storage then the next best place to look is the internet. If you surf the web you are more likely to save time in the searching process. With each self-storage facility that you find, you can call them up and ask them the same questions mentioned above. Take notes with each storage manager that you are able to speak with. When you are done with all of your phone calls review your notes and find out which ones is the best fit for you.

Once you have determined what your top three facilities are you can then take a tour of them. When taking the tour try to pay attention to the security of the facility. Do they have cameras, gates, motion detectors, 24 hour security? Find out what each facility as to offer and then you can make an educated decision.

The last thing you need to look into is the insurance that the facility provides you. Are they going to cover only part of a loss if your stuff gets stolen? Or, what if there is an environmental disaster that wipes out the storage spaces? You need to figure out what type of coverage the facility is going to provide. You will also want to ask your own insurance company if they can give you some additional coverage.
