You’ve made your final decision and you’re ready to move home. But with so many belongings to pack you might be considering moving some of your precious items into a storage unit. This is not always a simple decision to make, but our experts have many years’ experience in this area. And so within this latest post, we present our three tips for choosing a storage unit.
- Initial Response
Once you’ve made an enquiry to several local storage facilities, it’s important that you consider how they respond to your interest. The leading facilities will be able to respond within a quick timeframe with clear information on their working process. They will provide you with guidelines on their security system and on the prices for storing items within their facility. If the company is slow to respond or otherwise unhelpful in how they respond, you might be best to choose an alternative storage option.
- Security Features
The storage facility should have in-place a comprehensive security system. They should be able to tell you exactly how they will protect your items while they’re within the facility. Any storage facility security system should include CCTV cameras, which are recording 24-hours a day to help catch any potential activity that could lead to the loss of property or damage of property. The company should also have implemented a rigid system for accessing the storage area, whether this involves pin codes or having access cards only the property owner can use.
- Price and Location
Both the price you’re willing to pay and the location of the facility are also important factors in your decision. Before you begin communicating with various facilities in the area, consider your storage budget and then start to compare each facility by price. It’s also critical that the storage facility you choose is close to your home. This will mean you’re easily able to visit the facility to remove one of your stored items and you can also go to the facility on short notice if you have a question for their team.
By following the tips highlighted within this post, you can make sure your stored items remain in peak condition while in the facility. To learn more on how to choose the right storage unit for your belongings, speak with our experienced team now!
