It may seem obvious, but let’s look at reasons why a storage rental will help you solve a space problem.

Moving? You Need Storage Space!

You will be in good company using a self storage rental when you move, as it’s a common occurrence. Storage rentals are most often needed between moves when you have no place to keep your possessions. Doing this also gives you freedom to be flexible with your living arrangements: you may want to rent somewhere before you buy.

By packing all your loose items in boxes, one load and a trip to the self storage facility removes the problem you are facing.

Storage rentals are also well suited for the storage of furniture. It could be a couch, table and chairs or bedroom contents. Ensure that they are well wrapped in bubble wrap before storage, and you are good to go!

A storage rental is well suited for business purposes mainly because of the immediacy of availability when space is needed. Say for example you have excess inventory and have no secure space to put it. A call to a storage rental provider such as Stop & Store will bring the storage solution to you in a jiffy.

When there is a new addition to the family, space must be made to accommodate the new furniture such as a cot and playthings for the baby. Likewise, when a family member comes to stay and household goods are in the way, what better way to clean up space than hiring a storage rental unit to get them out of the way.

Cleaning up and reducing to make space. Often called decluttering, taking all the unnecessary household appliances, furniture and garden implements out of the way makes an enormous difference to the look of a house.

Do Your Research

When looking for a storage rental it’s advisable to look around for the best option for you. The first thing to look out for will be a special offer on the rental deal. Often a discount is available for storage rentals of two months or more.

The next would be the location of the storage facility. You would want to ensure that your stored goods are accessible if you need anything in the unit while you are renting it.

Next would be the size unit offered. First you will have to estimate the volume of goods that you need to store to make sure that the unit size is adequate. To help you do this, make a list of everything you are wanting to store. If in doubt about the self storage unit’s capacity to accommodate your goods, simply look at a space calculator to get some idea of what can fit into a particular size storage unit.

Another factor to consider is whether you should choose an outdoor or indoor storage rental. Normally an outdoor unit is a cheaper option. It is also often more accessible, allowing you to park right at the entrance of the self storage unit. Indoor units are considered more appropriate for storing fragile or valuable items, but that’s often a personal preference, as all storage units should be secure.

Safety Considerations on Storage Rental

Speaking of security, ask about surveillance and monitoring and access when you are looking for a storage rental. A top storage facility will offer the best there is as the safety of your possessions is their concern. You will need to buy a good lock for the door and opt to insure your goods while in storage.

How well you pack and store your goods will also determine how they are preserved while in storage. Good quality corrugated boxes, securely taped up and sealed, are a must. Furniture should be bubble wrapped to prevent knocks and damage.

Pack all large items first towards the back of the storage rental unit and the smaller items towards the front, leaving adequate space for you to reach anything should you need it.
