Storage Guide

When placing your belongings in storage you will need to consider how to optimize your space to get the best value. This will depend on what you are storing, how long you intend to keep it there, and what access you will need to the items while they are in our facility. Fortunately, our knowledgeable staff of self storage professionals are ready to help you determine the best size space, and help you maximize the room for your needs.

Determining your Storage Needs:

Many of our Self Storage Plus locations offer different types of storage solutions to suit your needs. Choosing the right type of storage can help save you money, improve your access and protect your items. The types of items that you are putting in storage and how long you intend to keep them there may determine the type of storage option that you should be considering.

For example, if you will be storing paper records such as office files or books, these items are sensitive to temperature and humidity. They can degrade over time unless they are kept at a constant temperature so you would want to purchase a climate controlled storage space. By contrast, your patio furniture and your children’s play set can withstand temperature changes and could be kept in one of our standard interior storage spaces, or in one of our drive up storage units. If you are cost sensitive, you could save money if a standard non-climate controlled interior storage space is available; however, if you are more concerned with ease of access, our drive up option will be your best bet for your seasonal items. Our dedicated team is ready to help take the guesswork out of storage options.

Determining the Right Size:

Once our staff has helped you to determine the best solution for your needs, they will consider the volume of items you will be storing and make a recommendation for you on the most appropriate size. Our staff has years of industry experience and is more than capable to advise you on the proper type of unit and size you will need while maximizing your storage space.
