Those looking to rent a self storage unit for their valuables should first find a reputable facility that ensures your belongings will be kept safe and sound.
From there, you can decide how big of a space you will need. Storage professionals will be at your disposal to help you pick the right size space, based on what and how much you want stored. Certain facilities also offer a number of different types of boxes to help you in the packing process.
