If you are downsizing to a smaller home or apartment, you might require a storage unit to stash some of your belongings for a while. Storage units come in a variety of sizes and added options, which include indoor, outdoor or climate-controlled rooms. Furthermore, you can find storage for vehicles, boats, or utility vehicles. The process begins with figuring out exactly how much of your property you will want to store, how long you will need to store your belongings, whether the possessions need to be safeguarded against heat, cold and/or humidity, and how much access to your unit you need. In other words, some facilities allow 24-hour access while others only operate 12-15 hours a day. Other things you will want to consider is the security of the facility, which might include fencing, alarm systems, a roaming security guard, cameras and coded access gates. Finally, you will need to think about the price of your unit. Some storage facilities offer discounts to military personnel, veterans, seniors or AAA members. Others will offer the first month of storage for free or at a reduced price and you might be able to receive a discount for long-term storage. There is also the cost of insurance for most storage units in case your property is damaged, destroyed or stolen. In addition to self-storage units off your property, you can rent a portable storage unit with a lockable container that is placed on your property. This allows you to pack and retrieve your possessions whenever you want. When the container is filled and you decide that you won’t need access to it for an extended period, you have the option of having the container picked up and stored in a special facility for portable storage containers.
