Requirements to rent self storage.

You might be surprised just how easy it is to rent storage units.  For most storage places, there are only two requirements: you must have a valid, picture identification, and you must sign a binding contract. The minimum age, either eighteen or twenty-one, depending upon the storage company you are dealing with.

We mentioned signing a contract.  Most storage companies rent month to month; however, make sure of this point, so you don’t sign a long-term contract without knowing it.

And that is all there is to it! However, let’s delve a little deeper into the process, and point out a few things we think are worth mentioning.

A few more points to consider.

We believe, from our years in this business, that renter’s insurance is important to purchase.  The storage company is only responsible for liability should you be injured, while on the rental property, due to the company’s unsafe conditions i.e. should a faulty bay door come unhinged and crash down on your foot, or should their faulty water pipes suddenly burst, causing damage to your items.

That is important liability coverage, but it doesn’t come close to protecting you against all the things which could go wrong while your belongings are in storage.  And, considering the price of renter’s insurance (very inexpensive) we just think it is silly not to purchase it.

A pro staff to help you choose wisely.

In the storage business, size matters. The larger the storage unit, the more it will cost you each month, which leads to this question: what size storage unit do you need? This can be a confusing question, for most people have no idea how much you can squeeze into a 10’x10’ storage space.

To alleviate that concern, most storage places like Mouser Self Storage have an easy guide on the website.  Taking that one step further, most places have trained pros to help you decide exactly what you need.  The guesswork is pretty much eliminated by simply talking to the staff, telling them exactly what will be stored, and taking their recommendation.

A few final points to consider.  Will you have 24/7 access to your unit? How easy is it to access? Is there electricity in the unit? Does the storage company have secure self storage, meaning how safe are your possessions?

Remember this: if you live in a reasonably large city, you have dozens of self-storage companies to choose from.  Shop around and find the best situation for you.  Prices are fairly standard in this industry, but the intangibles, like customer service and security, differ greatly from company to company.
