As summer has arrived, many homeowners are packing up seasonal items to put in self storage. As these items are likely cluttering up a closet, garage or basement, self storage provides a cost-effective solution to free up space in the home. However, when it comes to storing your valuables, there are a few ways to save money on self storage costs.
Those utilizing self storage should set up a plan of things you want stored. As storage facilities offer different sizes of units, there is no sense purchasing a larger unit than you need, so it's important to know just how much space you require. It's also important to factor what type of items you want stored and if you will require climate controlled storage units to ensure things like documents stay safe.
Signing a long-term contract
At reputable Jiffy Self-Storage, if you sign a long-term contract, you will save on storage costs. The facility gives users a free 13th month of storage when they sign a 12-month lease and 50 percent out a seventh month when they sign a six-month lease.
Jiffy Self Storage, a leader in Toronto storage solutions, is currently running a contest on their website for a free iPad 3. Visitors to the site simply need to match a few Canadian landmarks and they'll be entered to win the iPad or one of several other prizes.
