If you drive around any city, it won’t be long before you spot self-storage facilities. Old movie theatres, grocery stores, and warehouses are being converted to storage areas, and new structures are being built. Since 2012, the self-storage industry has grown an average of 7.7 percent yearly.
While there are many reasons for the self-storage boom, the saturated market can make it challenging to pick which self-storage unit is suitable for you. Here is how to choose the best self-storage unit.
Estimate Your Needed Storage Space
First, establish how many things you will be storing. This varies widely–you could temporarily store a few items during a work assignment overseas or have inherited an estate and need extra time to sort through the items.
While some storage facilities have one-size units, Peavler Moving & Storage has varying unit sizes, from 5’x10′ up to 10’x30′! This allows you to only pay for the space you need.
Establish Your Budget
Before going storage hunting, establish a budget. This is especially true for long-term storage, as you’ll be making payments for months or years. Just as you wouldn’t take on a car loan that was out of your budget, having a budget for self-storage will give you black-and-white boundaries while researching.
Peavler Moving & Storage offers excellent rates compared with top competitors! We strive to make self-storage available for all budgets.
Know Your Unit Type
Self-storage units have come a long way from a cluster of padlocked sheds. Many storage facilities, including Peavler Moving & Storage, have regular and climate-controlled units. If you have fragile or heat or moisture-sensitive items, then it’s best to pick a climate-controlled unit.
Research Local Units
While it isn’t necessary to have a local unit, it is guaranteed you will use your storage unit more if it is local.
If you are local to Danville or Harrodsburg, then Peavler Moving & Storage units are in convenient locations that will save drive time and make your storage investment worth it.
Look At the Customer Reviews
Check the customer reviews before putting a storage unit on your shortlist. Reviews can be found on Google Maps, Yelp, Better Business Bureau, and more. While an occasional bad review is understandable, you don’t want to entrust your valuables to a business with a history of customer complaints.
At Peavler Moving & Storage, you’ll never feel like a number. Customer satisfaction is our top priority! After reading our positive customer service reviews, you’ll feel confident that our storage units will keep your valuables safe.
