How to Find the Perfect Storage Unit for Your Belongings


December 12, 2018

The end of the year is a great time to start your lease on a new storage unit, with the vast number of deals and promotions going on. However, how do you find the ideal storage unit for you? To get started finding the perfect storage unit that will fit all your belongings year-round, follow the steps below, begin your lease for the new year, and hire a local mover to transport your belongings to the unit following the holiday season. 

Determine Your Spending Limits

Unfortunately, storage unit rentals don’t come cheap. Due to this, it’s essential you determine what your spending limits are, whether you figure this out on your own looking at your monthly budgets or with the help from a local financial institution. Once you’ve found your spending limits, you can begin figuring out how large you want your storage unit to be, which will mostly reflect how much you can spend on your budget. 

Figure Out How Large Your Unit Should Be

If you own a lot of belongings, you’re going to need a storage unit that has a significant amount of space. However, that’s going to run you quite a bit of money, which can be challenging if you’re on a tight budget. The best way to go about figuring out what size storage unit you should rent is figuring out how much stuff you want to put into your unit.  To do this, consider how large your budget is, and rent out a unit that’s somewhere in the middle. Although you might not be able to put everything you want into your storage unit, you can get as close to a packed unit away from your home as much as you are possible.  

Compare Different Storage Unit Providers

There should be plenty of local storage unit providers that you can begin comparing. After all, you don’t want to go with the first storage company you see. Start by creating a small list of local storage companies and comparing them based on affordability, dependability, customer reviews, among other factors. Make sure to take your time during this step; you don’t want to rush hiring a storage company that will be carrying all your most precious belongings. 

Get Local Estimates and Book Walkthroughs

With your list of local storage unit providers, you should start getting local estimates and book walkthroughs. This is single-handedly the best way to determine which storage company you should begin renting from. Although this can be the most tedious step, it’s crucial you take the time to do so. 

Without a doubt, there’s a lot of work that goes into finding the perfect storage unit for your belongings.
