Renting long-term storage in Rockville: what to look out for in a storage unit

There are a lot of things to take into consideration when renting long-term storage. You need to take into know how close the storage unit is to your home, the woring hours of the storage unit, it’s price, etc. That’s why we recommend that, before you hire Excalibur Moving and Storage, to get to know exactly what you want from a storage unit.

1. Safety and security measures.

The most important key for any storage unit is security. You should look for a storage unit that has 24/7 surveillance and security. You want your belongings to be protected and secured. That’s why we recommend looking for a company that really puts an emphasis on safety and security of your belongings.

2. The features of the storage unit.

Besides security, the second crucial thing to choosing the perfect storage unit is its features. As you might imagine, not all storage units are created equal. Depending on your needs you should look out for these features in storage facility:

  • Climate-controlled storage unit.
  • Weather-resistant steel unit.
  • Indoor or outdoor unit.

We recommend that you play around with these features and see what works best for you. For example, if you live in a state that’s know to have extremely high temperatures and you plan on storing electronic devices and things susceptible to heat, we recommend you get an AC controlled unit. On the other hand, if your state is known for having massive swings in weather, we recommend going for a weather-resistant storage unit.

3. Renting long-term storage in Rockville: accessibility

Another important thing to look out for when renting storage is its accessibility. For example, is your storage unit vehicle accessible? Can you access your storage unit 24/7? These are the questions that are quite important, alongside security and other key features. However, if a storage unit is not accessible that is necessarily bad. It all depends on your needs and wants. If you are using your storage unit just to store your belongings and forget about them, then you don’t really need high accessibility.

The best way to save money on a storage unit is to only choose the features that you need.

This is important because that means you can shave off a couple of bucks that high accessibility offers, and opt for a cheaper but still high-quality storage unit. This brings us to our next point.

4. The cost of the storage unit.

When you are choosing a storage unit an important thing to take into consideration is the cost. More specifically, the subscription plan. Some moving companies offer weekly, others monthly, and most yearly plans. The yearly plans are the cheapest in the long run. However, sometimes you know you are not going to be using a storage unit for more than a few months. If that is the case, we recommend you either invest in a monthly or weekly plan.

  3. Choose. Pick out the company that offers the best blend of cost, reliability, and features.

However, before you decide and pick out a company for your storage unit, we also recommend that you give them a call.
