What to Look for When Selecting a Self Storage Facility

At Thornburg & Associates, Inc., we want to help you with all of your real estate needs. We also understand that in many cases, those needs might include the use of a self storage facility in which to stash extra belongings, as excessive clutter in a space is likely to discourage interested parties. Like anything else, not all self storage facilities are created equal, and our team wants to help you choose the best one. In this article, we’ll go over some key things to look for when selecting a storage facility in order to make sure that your items are in good hands.

Common Misconceptions About Homeowners Associations

  • Accessibility- Before you decide on a self storage facility, you should consider when and how often you will need to access your unit. Some facilities offer 24-hour access, while others keep more conventional daytime hours. If you anticipate needing to run back and forth to your storage unit many times, make sure to choose a facility that makes that easy.
  • Security- Another key thing to look for in a self storage facility is security. You want your items to be there waiting for you when you need them again, so it’s important to choose a facility that has robust security measures.
  • Climate Control-A third thing to consider when choosing a self storage facility is whether or not you need climate control. Storage units with no climate control are more likely to experience extreme temperatures and high humidity, both of which can have a damaging impact on the items inside. Keeping your items at a consistent temperature will help keep it in better condition in the long run.
