Short of Space? Self-Storage Could be the Answer
There are many reasons why the space that has normally proved to be sufficient for our purposes may no longer be adequate. With the exception of those with a compulsion to hoard things, this will normally be a temporary problem and so it will be one that only requires a temporary solution. For most people, a self-storage unit is likely to be the most practical option.
Let’s say, for example, you’ve sold your house and are now awaiting the completion of a new home. In the interim, you have had to arrange for temporary accommodation in a guesthouse but have nowhere to store your items of furniture. Perhaps a removal company has agreed to look after it until it can be delivered to your new premises which sounds great, but its depot is quite distant and you will not be granted entry to the facility to keep an eye on your possessions which is not ideal at all.
A better option might be to hire your own truck and a self-storage unit. The former will only be required on the days when you deposit and collect your items, while the latter can be rented on a month-to-month basis for as long as you may need the facility. This makes it a cheaper option also.
Naturally, you will be concerned about the safety of your property. Any facility you choose must ensure it will be protected and should preferably be subject to round-the-clock security. In addition, the secure accommodation needs to be of a construction that ensures stored items are not exposed to damp or extreme temperatures, except, of course, if a refrigerated self-storage unit is required.
The next important consideration is the size of the unit. It will need to be large enough to accommodate everything you need to be stored. However, because the price you pay will be determined by the floor space of the unit you rent, you will need to ensure that you don’t have to pay for far more space than you actually need. Your requirement, then, will be to find a company that is able to offer you self-storage units of a size that is practical for most casual users.
