A storage unit is a smart solution for homeowners, renters, businesses and contractors. If this is your first time utilizing a storage unit, you probably have a lot of questions about choosing the right storage facility for you. In order to help you out, we put together a list of some common questions our customers ask before renting with us.

What You Should Know Before Choosing Your Storage Facility

Before choosing your storage facility, it is important to know the answer to these questions below.

  • What are the security features at the storage facility?
    When choosing a self storage facility, choose one that has the safety of your storage unit at heart. The storage units at Lighthouse Self Storage feature 24/7 camera surveillance to give our customers peace of mind.
  • What are the payment options at the storage facility?
    Many traditional storage facilities require you to pay your bill at the storage facility. We know you’re busy, which is why we offer an online bill payment option.
  • Does the storage facility offer easily accessible storage units?
    There’s nothing worse than having to maneuver your items through long hallways and elevators just to load or unload your storage unit. Lighthouse Self Storage offers drive-up loading and unloading options, so you can easily pull up in front of your storage unit and load or unload your items.
  • Are you planning on storing temperature sensitive items?
    Overtime, fluctuations in temperature can damage sensitive items. It is important to store your more sensitive items, like leather or wooden furniture, electronics and documents in a temperature controlled storage unit.
  • What are the storage unit gate access hours?
    We know our customers are constantly on the go. This is why we offer early morning and late-night gate access hours to work with your busy schedule. Before moving into your storage unit, be sure to ask about the gate access hours at that storage facility.
