There are many reasons you may searching for a self storage facility. Common reasons people choose to utilize a self storage unit include life changes, relocation, divorce and decluttering. Understanding what your storage unit should offer you will help you to get the most out of your storage unit rental, and will keep you from choosing a poor facility.

Security Features at Your Storage Unit

This is the number one concern most people have when renting a storage unit. Ideally, you want to choose a facility you feel safe storing your belongings at, as well as entering. Features you may look for include a well-lit facility, 24/7 camera monitoring system, and computerized access with individual codes. The facility should be fenced in to keep all unauthorized personnel from entering.

Insurance Coverage at Your Storage Unit

When choosing a storage facility, pick one that offers renter’s insurance. This is to ensure that if anything happens to your property while it is in our care, you will get compensated for your losses. Hopefully you will not need to use your renter’s insurance, but it is nice to have the peace of mind of knowing you’re covered. Additionally, a storage facility that offer’s renter’s insurance shows that they have your best interest at heart.

All-Weather Storage Facility

Florida can experience extreme weather. Choose a facility built to withstand whatever mother nature will throw at it. When there’s a possibility of serious weather, the last thing you want is to have to worry about if your storage unit can withstand the threat. Choosing an all-weather storage facility will give you valuable peace of mind.

Ample Lighting and Air Conditioning

When choosing a storage facility, pick one that has ample lighting. This is not only a great security feature, as it will help to deter crime and will make you feel much safer, it will also be extremely convenient. There’s nothing more frustrating than digging around in your storage unit searching for an item, but unable to find it due to insufficient lighting. Air conditioning is another perk some storage facilities offer. While air conditioning is not only beneficial to the renter for comfort reasons, it also can help to protect sensitive items in the storage unit from dangerous temperatures.
