Moving and Renting a Storage Unit: What You Should Know

Whether you’re storing already-packed boxes or setting aside items for a garage sale, storage units can be incredibly helpful during a move. Here’s a few things to keep in mind as you make your storage arrangements.

Store smart

Don’t store firearms, paint, or food in your storage unit, as these items are not storage unit friendly. Double check with your storage facility about any further regulations you should adhere to. When in doubt, it’s better to ask permission than assume.

Invest in the best

Depending on what you’re storing, you may not need all the climate control, tight security, and safety features available to you. But these are more than just amenities. They protect your belongings from damage, theft, and the elements. So if you are storing antiques, technology, or other valuables, better to be safe than sorry and invest in the protection you need.

Don’t forget the perks

Sometimes storage units will give you discounts on moving trucks or allow you to use their other moving equipment such as dollies, hand trucks, and blankets for free! If you need something, it doesn’t hurt to ask what equipment is available to you.
