3 Benefits of Self Storage

by Chad Stanley

If you are looking for a good storage facility to store some of your items, then a self storage facility may have what you need. Self storage units give you a lot of the control and aim to please you as the customer. Here are three benefits of using a self storage facility. 

You Choose Your Unit 

Self storage facilities have several different units that you can choose from. Not only do they differ in their size and dimensions, but you can also get storage units that have temperature control and/or humidity control. These last two types of locations are great for anyone who needs to store something that may be effected by cold or hot temperatures or moisture, such as pianos, televisions, wood products, and other electronics. There are even extremely tall and wide storage units that are excellent for things like RVs and/or boats. 

You Can Add or Remove Items Whenever You'd Like 

Another nice thing about having a self storage unit is the fact that you are in control of when things are added and removed. You are given a key to the unit and can come any time during open hours to make changes to the unit. You can bring new items, remove ones that you need, and even re-organize them whenever you'd like. This makes it easy for you to get the things that you need in the right locations, which is important to most people who would like to store some of their items. 

Most Have Short-Term Leases 

The last thing that you want is to be stuck in a long term lease for your storage unit. You may only want a storage unit for a short period of time. This may be because you need a place to store your items while you are away for the summer, while you are building a home, or for some other reason. You can generally a get a lease that is on a month-to-month basis. This means that you simply need to give the storage facility a one month notice of when you'd like to cancel your lease and they won't charge you. Just make sure that you remove your items from the unit within the designated time frame. 

Using self storage services is a great option because you can choose the type of unit that best meets your needs, you can add or remove items from the unit whenever you need to, and most have short term leases.
