How To Choose The Right Self-Storage Facility

Whether you are moving, renovating your home or business or have too much stuff, you need someplace safe and secure to store your things. Getting a self-storage unit can help. However, there are certain things you should look for when choosing one.

Clean And Up-To Date

Before putting your valuables into a facility make sure it’s properly maintained. An up-to-date facility will also offer climate-controlled units. This is very important if you have papers, electrical equipment, art or other temperature sensitive items.

Safe And Secure

Proper security is also important. Look for cameras monitoring and 24 hour security. Ask about fire and theft protection and whether or not the things in your unit will be covered by insurance if it’s damaged or stolen.

Easy Access

Choose a facility which offers easy access to your unit. Find out if you’ll be given a card key or code which will allows you easy access to the facility. Pay attention to how easy it is to put things in or take them out the storage units and if they have sturdy, clean, easy to use carts and dollies for taking things to or from your vehicle.

Good Value

Leave things in a storage unit for an extended period of time it could become expensive. There are lots of competing self-storage facilities in Toronto and North York. Do some research to find out which one offers the best value. Find out if they offer specials. Remember a low price is not the only indicator you are getting good value for your money. The facility must be safe, secure and well-maintained as well.

Check Their Reputation

Another important step to ensure you are choosing a good self-store facility is to find out about its reputation. Do they have a history of break-ins or damage to the property or the units? Ask the staff, anyone you know that has used the facility and scourer the internet for reviews of the storage facilities you are considering. A visit to the Better Business Bureau’s website will let you know the company’s rating and if complaints have been lodged against them.
