Organizing My Storage Unit

I have always been one of those people who is obsessed with organization, which is probably why I set out to create a completely organized and easy to use storage unit. I wanted the entire space to be simple to go through and a breeze to move out of, so I started boxing, labeling, and stacking things accordingly. It took a little bit of time, but before I knew it, my entire storage space was gleaming and beautiful. This blog is completely dedicated to creating a storage space that will work well for your lifestyle and streamline your next move.

3 Questions To Ask A Potential Storage Unit Facility

Whether you've downgraded to a small house, or you just need a place to store some items, a storage unit is a great idea. Storage units let you safety protect items you don't need to use often without cluttering your home. If you are shopping for a good storage facility, check out these questions you should ask before renting.

What Are the Security Measures?

Storage facilities need to have good security measures to keep belongings safe. Storage facilities with little or no security are attractive to thieves. Some security measures you can see when you visit the place. For example, is there plenty of light or is it dark? Another important security features is if there is someone on the grounds at all time, such as an on-site manager who lives in the facility. When it comes to entry codes, choose a place that gives out different codes to everyone, so there is no one code that a thief could learn.

When Can Units Be Accessed?

One of the downsides of putting your items in a storage facility is that they are not readily available. You have to go to the facility, enter your unit and find what you want. Of course, depending of the facility, you may need to follow their schedule to get your items. Some facilities are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, but others may have strict hours, so you can't get your items when you want them. Make sure you also ask about the office hours too.

Are Units Temperature Controlled?

Some items can be stored in almost any condition, such as a bike. However, there are some items that can become damaged when exposed to heat and cold. These include items like pictures, electronics, paintings, antiques and many others. If you are storing items that may become damaged in the hot or cold, ask about temperature controlled units. Temperature controlled facilities keep the units at a safe temperature, so your items are not damaged. Temperature control units may cost more, so if you don't need one, it may not be worth the extra money.

If you need to store some of your items outside of your home, a storage facility is an excellent option, but make sure you find the right one for you. If you are ready, get started today by calling local storage facilities and asking these three questions. You can also click here for info on storage facilities.
