Picking the Right Storage

If you’re living in a packed house, then storage is a must, but with so many different types of storage units, how do you know which one is best?

Self-storage units typically range from 10×5 feet to 20×20 feet. They are lockable by the tenant, and tend to be windowless. These are typically rented monthly and the storage company may offer different features, such as automatic gates, cameras, motion detectors, and unit alarms. They are the most popular and are ideal for business and residential use.

Climate-controlled units are similar to regular storage facilities in terms of shape and security. The main difference is that in order for these to be climate-controlled, they must be located in a multi-story building with loading docks and elevators. These facilities are the best for items that need to be protected from weather extremes, such as furniture or priceless heirlooms.

Portable storage units are also similar to the standard units, but are usually kept in small tractor-trailer units. They can either be locked and left where they are, returned to a central holding facility, or shipped to a new location for unloading. These are most commonly used by business requiring temporary on-site storage or residents who are moving or remodeling their homes.
