Important Factors for Selecting a Self Storage Facility

What do you need to store?

Ask yourself how many items will you be storing? Storage units come in a variety of sizes from the smallest being 5×5 up to 10×30 or bigger. Choosing the best storage unit size for you will depend on what you need to store. If you are storing the contents of an apartment, then you would need a larger storage unit. If you are just storing business files, then you might only need a closet-size storage unit. A business will have different storage need than someone storing their personal belongings. Some business and personal items will require to be climate controlled storage units instead of a conventional storage unit.

Even different businesses will have different storage needs. Contractors can store equipment and tools while offices can store customer or employee files to restaurants storing table and chairs during the off season, self storage can help any storage need. Electronics or paper documents should be stored in a climate controlled storage unit. Also, family heirlooms, artwork, photographs, collectibles and some delicate furniture should be stored in a climate controlled unit.
