During these unprecedented times, we take our role as an essential service provider seriously and we remain open to service our customers. We understand that everyone is very concerned with the potential spread of the Coronavirus. We’re following the guidelines put in place by the federal government, local governments and the CDC.
Below are some of the safety precautions we’ve implemented to protect our team and our clients:
If your house is still cluttered despite your best efforts to get it staged for sale, you may consider renting a self-storage shed. For those who tend to favor DIY projects, rather than a hiring a traditional mover, there’s no shortage of storage facilities to choose from. In fact, there are an estimated 58,000 mini-storage facilities in the United States! Most facilities offer both month-to-month and long term contracts. Below are some things to consider when shopping for the right storage facility.
In most cases, your possessions are not covered by the facility’s insurance policy. However, speak to your insurance company about whether your renter’s or homeowner’s insurance policy offers coverage for your possessions while in a self-storage facility. Most facilities do carry insurance to protect the building, but that doesn’t necessarily protect you in the event of a disaster.
In most facilities, the individual units are secured by the tenants own lock. Generally, the facilities will not be liable for theft. Some storage facilities employ security guards. Others may have security cameras or alarms installed. It is not uncommon to see keypads or key card access, especially for those facilities that offer 24 hour access. Decide what level of security you need before making your decision.
If you’re going to be storing your items for a long period of time, then you may want to consider a climate-controlled storage facility. These units have a more consistent temperature and humidity levels than a traditional unit, which puts less stress on the contents inside. Generally speaking, climate controlled units will rent for a premium. If you don’t plan to store for long and you’re not storing expensive art or antique furniture, then you may elect to go with a traditional unit.
