There comes a time in most people’s lives where self storage is inevitable. Whether it’s long or short term. Storing old items, or storing while you go through a house renovation, or turning that spare room into a new bedroom for the new baby! Maybe you are heading overseas for a few years travelling or you have to downsize. Whatever the reason self storage can be a great alternative. But you need to make sure you do your homework first!
Be sure to look at exactly what you want to store and measure it out, you only want to rent the space you need. Remember you can use from the floor to the full height of your unit, by stacking items and using shelving, doing this correctly will save you money.
When you come to choose the location ask yourself how many times you will be visiting your storage space, if it’s not going to be often, then you can be flexible as to how far you have to travel. Storage centre rates can vary depending on where they are located, whether they are close to the city or further out, all of this plays a part in your monthly storage costs.
