Once you have identified that you need a storage facility, it is important to understand the process involved so that you will be organized about the whole move. The process may vary for a number of reasons, but it is smart to understand the basics especially if it is your first time using a self- storage facility.

Identify a Good Storage Facility

First and foremost, you need to do your research to find the best storage facility in your location. You can do this by getting referrals from friends and family or by doing a simple internet search on the best facilities near your location. If you are near Fort Lauderdale, you may want to check out storage facilities near Coral Springs or Dania Beach. Look for the facility that offers the best security and storage unit sizes for the items you want to store. Whether it is personal belongings, business documents, furniture or electronics.

Make an Inquiry on the Storage Unit

Once you have settled on the storage unit facility of your choice, it is time to make a call, or better yet, visit the premise to see what it offers and get a quote. Our facility is open 7 days a week so you can visit any day during work hours. We can also give you a quote based on the size and the period that you will be using our facilities.

Make Payments on the Storage Unit

Our Fort Lauderdale storage facility allows you to make payments using the most convenient method for you. We do not require any down payments, so you only pay once you are ready to rent the unit. We also offer various lengths of contracts, such as monthly, quarterly and yearly, so that you can make your payments depending on the length of time that suits your needs.

Packing and Transportation to the Storage Facility

Besides boxes, tape and covers, you will also need to book a transportation company that will take the stuff to your storage facility. It is important at you inform your storage unit when you will be bringing in your goods so that everything is ready for you.

Moving and Lockup of the Storage Unit

Once you have packed everything into the moving truck, it’s time to take it to the storage facility and get it arranged properly so that nothing gets damaged.
