When choosing a self storage facility you need to consider what you will be storing and how much space you require. Staff at the storage site should be able to offer advice as to the most suitable sized unit. Most storage units will be general purpose but there may be specialist storage that would suit your needs, for example paper archive stores or air conditioned units.
It is a good idea to visit potential sites to check their security and get a feel for the facilities. Look to see if there is a manned office and ask to view the storage units before you rent. Are there plenty of CCTV cameras located around the storage site and does it feel secure? You may find more details about this at easyStorage Self Storage Wandsworth, Putney.
You want to be able to load and unload your unit easily so check vehicle access and ask if there will be staff available to help if you need assistance. Enquire about access hours and whether you can access your unit outside of the standard opening times. Many storage facilities provide 24 hour electronic access using swipe cards or fobs.
Check if your goods are insured during storage and what this insurance covers. If insurance is not included then it may be an extra cost so make sure the prices are transparent. Some self-storage companies will charge extra for locks and to access your belongings.
Some self storage companies will insist that you rent for minimum period but others will offer flexible terms. Ask what paperwork is required, accepted payment methods, if locks and packing materials are included and if there are any restrictions on what can and can’t be stored. This will make moving in a lot easier and avoid any unnecessary complications.
