Storage : Mobile Self Storage
Are you running out of storage space in your home or office? Do you have more “stuff” than you know what to do with? If you are like most people in this country, you probably have a ton of junk lying around because you simply have no more room for it. The solution, is staring you in the face right now and that solution is called self storage. Read on to find out more about the ins and outs of self storage.
Self storage is available to residential and business customers. It is generally very cost effective also because it allows a person or business to store all kinds of items in a secure location while being permitted constant and unfettered access to such belongings twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.
Facilities that provide storage space rentals are known in the industry as self storage providers. These facilities rent out varying shapes and sizes of self storage space that folks then use to store thins such as personal belongings, furniture, business equipment, etc. The list of items that can be stored in a self storage unit is pretty much endless as long as the items are legal and not considered dangerous by the self storage facility management. The single most important advantage of using self storage facilities is the freedom of choice you, as a client, are offered. For example, you can rent a small five foot by five foot area if that is all you need. In contrast, you can also rent a self storage unit that is large enough to hold one or more vehicles! As I stated earlier, the flexibility offered by these types of self storage companies is just amazing.
One of the more important features of any self storage provider is the security that is provided for your prized possessions. The explosion of self storage companies that has occurred over the last few years has brought many good self storage providers into the marketplace and many poor storage providers as well. It is your job as a consumer to properly vet any self storage provider you intend to use. Be sure to ask for a full list of services that are provided and the associated costs. Compare this information with other local self storage facilities in your area and choose the company that provides the best security even if it does cost a bit more.
If you do not have the time to go back and forth from your location to the storage facilities in your area, there is another alternative that many of them now offer. This alternative type of self storage is known as mobile self storage and it is a very effective and cost effective self storage solution for those who simply do not have the time to travel to and from a local self storage facility.
Mobile self storage is certainly a flexible and effective storage solution for both residential and commercial clients. The way mobile self storage works is pretty straightforward. Basically, the self storage company will send staff to your location along with self storage containers. Such storage containers are strong and weatherproof and can vary in size. You are then free to fill these storage containers with your belongings at your leisure. Once you’ve added all of your belongings to your self storage containers, you can either leave the containers at your property or you can have the self storage facility remove the containers from your property and transport them to their own storage facility where you will be give exclusive access to them via a gate code and keys.
Utilizing mobile self storage, in effect, cuts your work in half and ultimately reduces your costs. Instead of spending money on gas and wasting time traveling back and forth from a local self storage provider, you can simply step outside your door and store everything right in your driveway. The option to have your local self storage staff come and pick it up and move it to your self storage unit is a huge perk and incredibly time saving. If you require any type of self storage, I strongly recommend that you check out the mobile self storage options available from your local providers.
As you can see, self storage in general can be an amazingly convenient and cost effective service if you choose the right company. Mobile self storage, in my own experience, is just a fantastic invention. Activities such a moving between houses and cleaning garages have become substantially less complicated with the advent of mobile self storage offerings.
