Moving Advice You Must Know

Hi there, my name is Devin and when my friends and family get ready to move to a new house, they always call on me to help. I own a large box truck that I use for my work, and when someone needs to move, I use my truck to help them move. Because I've done this numerous times, I've learned many things about moving. The good thing is that I can offer sound advice when a problem arises. Since I'm the guy that everyone needs when they move, my friend suggested that I write a blog. After thinking it over, I realized that many people would be able to benefit from my experience with moving and so this blog was born. I hope that by reading this blog, it will help you when moving.

Want Long-Term Storage? 3 Tips On Picking An Ideal Facility

Renting a storage unit for a few months may not demand extensive research because of the short rental length. However, a long-term storage unit rental makes it worthwhile to invest ample time and effort into the process of choosing a facility that satisfies all your needs.

Each facility has unique features and qualities; the tricky part is that you may prefer certain ones. In contrast, another person might like different features. Learning what will help you pick an ideal long-term storage unit and facility will lead to a positive outcome over the long run.

Unit Features

Analyzing unit features is essential to getting the right storage for your needs. Some facilities only have indoor units, while others are limited to outdoor units. An excellent feature to prioritize is facilities with both indoor and outdoor units to enjoy the most flexibility.

While some facilities use a large piece of land to fit all their units on a single floor, you will also find places with units on multiple floors. An upstairs unit can give you peace of mind because your storage will not be as susceptible to pest and flooding complications. However, you may want to demand an elevator that allows you to bring your items upstairs quickly and easily.

Another detail to analyze is the parking situation. You may appreciate parking near a building entrance or your outdoor unit for the fastest accessibility.

Unit Sizes

A wide variety of unit sizes is worth getting with your storage facility. For instance, you may take measurements of what you plan to store and pick a facility based on this information. Over time, your storage needs may change after getting more items or moving into a larger place.

Depending on your needs, renting from a facility with multiple unit sizes will make it easy to downsize or upsize. A significant benefit is not having to move items off the property to get them into a more suitable storage unit rental. Also, you might be able to rent a different storage unit close enough that you can use a hand truck and furniture dolly to move everything.


Currently, your schedule may not be that busy, allowing you to visit most storage facilities during operating hours easily. The concern is that your schedule can change over months and years, and then getting to a unit during limited hours may become a challenge.

An excellent solution is to prioritize facilities open early in the morning, late in the evening, during weekends, and on holidays.

You can rent a storage unit long-term from an ideal facility by following the analysis tips listed above. To learn more, reach out to a local storage facility.
