Questions To Ask Before Renting A Self Storage Unit

Before you choose your self storage facility, here are some questions you should ask the storage facility manager before you choose the right one for you to make sure you are at ease to know your goods being stored are in good hand.

Is there an alarm in the facility?  Is there 24 hour surveillance?  Is the area gated?  Is there a manager on duty?

What are the access hours for customers to enter into the storage unit?  What are the office hours?

What size storage units are available for rent?

What is the cost per unit?  When is payment due?  Can I pay online and what forms of payment are accepted?

Is there a minimum period of time you must remain in storage?  For instance 2 month minimum, etc.

Are the facilities indoor or outdoor storage units?

Is there boat storage, rv storage, wine storage, document storage, motorcycle storage, etc?

Does your company offer any special discounts?  (1st month free, or $1.00) Are there senior citizen discounts, or military discounts, etc?

Do you have truck rentals available?  Dollies available?   Are there Furniture Pads, other moving or packing materials available?

Is there semi or tractor-trailer access into the facility (for real large moves, that are using a professional moving company?)

Are my items insured in case of flood, fire, weather related disasters?  Do I need to purchase additional insurance?

These are some great questions to ask before you choose the best storage facility for yourself.
