There are a wide range of different storage options available on the market. Some of these options include climate control, surveillance options and drive up accessibility. Drive up storage means that you are able to drive your vehicle right to the entrance of your storage unit for easy loading and unloading, so you can be in and out of a storage unit fast. If you are thinking about investing in a new, or your first storage unit, consider some of the below benefits that come with a drive up storage unit.
Park at the Door
Most of the damage that is done to your belongings doesn’t happen while they are in storage, it happens while you are transferring things from your car to the unit. With drive up storage, you minimize the risk of that happening because you are able to back your vehicle right up to the door.
Transfer Heavy Items Safely and Easily
You are also much less likely to injure yourself when you minimize the distance you have to travel with heavier items like furniture and electronics. With a drive up storage unit, you are less likely to damage your back, or break a foot because you don’t have to carry heavy, potentially dangerous items from the parking lot to your unit.
Get Rid of Moving Companies
It often slips people’s minds that moving heavy items, if you don’t have people around to help you, might entail having to shell out cash on a moving company. Moving companies are not cheap (depending on the amount of notice you give them for a move, the time of day and the time of week you need them) and you can never be sure that the company you are hiring is going to take the utmost care with your belongings. A drive up storage unit eliminates the distance you would normally have to travel to bring your items from your vehicle into the unit, which might eliminate your need for a moving company.
Drive up storage is great. You can essentially drive your car right up to the entrance of the unit. If you need to get things in and out fast, or you are worried about injury moving heavier objects long distances, consider investing in a self storage unit that has drive up access and save yourself hassle, and potentially, injury.
