How to Pick Your Storage Unit

If you’re getting ready for a move and plan to sell your home, you probably already know how important it is to clean the clutter out of your house so that it looks neat as you prepare for interested buyers. It’s common to rent a storage unit that will stow your extra belongings, like pieces of furniture and items that are usually placed in the attic and basement. If you walk into a room in your house and think, “This room has way too much stuff in it,” then it’s time to place some of it in self-storage.

Choosing a Storage Facility and Unit

Most people who are planning a move choose a facility close to their current home. Home movers in Pittsburgh realize that they need something that is already packed away, it’s a quick trip to pick it up. The best storage facility is one that:

  • Is Affordable. Many self-storage facilities have keyless access, 24/7 hours, and air-conditioned units. However, you should determine how appropriate the facility is by determining what you really need, instead of what seems nice to have. If an air-conditioned unit is definitely required, then you should invest in one. If not, you’ll be paying much less for your storage.
  • Is The Right Size. Some facilities have just one size storage unit, and some have several sizes. If you’re storing furniture, be sure that you are renting one that’s large enough. If you’re choosing between two sizes, you may want to rent the larger one so that you’re not running out of space.
  • Provides Security Features. You’ll want to be sure that your belonging will be safe and secure, so when you tour the storage space, check for an access gate – and see if it’s guarded or unguarded – as well as a surveillance system. If parking is available close to the units, are the spaces well lit? Ask if there is an on-site property manager, or if they are only available by phone.
