As your home begins to become more cluttered, the need for a storage unit will eventually be too big to ignore. However, renting a storage unit can seem like an overwhelming task, especially for people who have never rented a storage unit before. Today, Affordable Family Storage wants to help first-time self-storage renters. In this blog, we’ll walk you through the process and what you need to look for in a storage unit.
When looking for self-storage units, you have to know what your storage options are. In the Jefferson City area there are a variety of different options, including Affordable Family Storage. However, simply looking at the facilities isn’t the only factor. You need to find a storage facility that can accommodate your needs as a customer and that have the right features for the items you’re storing.
At the Jefferson City location, Affordable Family Storage offers the first month of services free of charge and for first-time renters, that can help alleviate the stresses of storage rentals.
When you know what your storage options are and perhaps even have a storage facility picked out, you need to then determine what size storage unit you need. It goes without saying, but this will ultimately come down to what type of items you are storing. If you are storing furniture pieces like couches, mattresses, and bed frames, you should look into a medium sized unit. If you are storing smaller items, you can invest in a smaller unit.
Lastly, if you are storing large items such as vehicles, or if you have a greater volume of items that you need to be stored, you will need a larger storage unit.
Once you know what options you have and what size unit you need, you need to determine what features your items require to be present with your storage unit. The most common amenity hat storage renters look for is climate-controlled units. If you have more delicate items that can be damaged by harsh temperatures, a climate-controlled unit is a must-have feature. Another common feature that first-time renters look for is accessibility. If you want to be able to get to your items quickly and easily, you need a facility that is accessible.
