Advantages Of Drive Up Storage Units

There are all kinds of personal storage options available on the market. The size of the space, climate control and allowances for certain kinds of materials all factor into the decision of what kind of storage to purchase. Convenience of access is another important determining factor that people often overlook. This includes the ability to drive up directly to the unit for easy unloading and reloading. Below are some of the advantages of drive up storage units.

The Advantages Of Drive Up Storage Units

Parking Right at the Door

Much of the damage that is done to goods being put into self storage occurs, not while the goods are being stored, but while they are being moved from the vehicle to the unit. Drive up storage helps to mitigate this threat by allowing you to pull your vehicle right up to the entrance of the storage unit, making unloading and loading easier, less stressful and less likely to cause damage or injury.

Easier to Transfer Heavier Items

With drive up storage, you don’t have to worry about damaging your back or breaking a foot moving furniture or appliances from the car to the unit. Simply lift the item out, carry it the short distance into the unit and you are done. No worrying about a trip to the doctor after you’ve dropped a recliner on your toe.

Eliminate Moving Companies

Many people forget that they might need to hire a moving company to help them move heavy items in and out of storage. Movers are not cheap and you can’t be sure that they are going to take the time and precautions with expensive, heavy items that you would like them to. With a drive up unit you often don’t have to worry about hiring outside help because the ease of access makes it much easier to get the job done yourself, or with one extra set of hands.

A drive up storage unit can make a world of difference. When you need to be able to get in and out of your storage unit, quick and hassle free, a unit that lets you basically back your car, truck or van into it is ideal. If you are wondering what kind of storage unit might work best for you and aren’t quite sure where to start, consider the above benefits of a drive up storage unit.
