At last count there were over 60,000 storage facilities for rent in the United States.

60,000!  That figures out to be one storage facility for every 6,000 people in the country, and by “facility” we mean business; within each self storage business are dozens of storage units.

And the industry is growing.

If you have never rented storage units, this article is for you. We are Mouser Self Storage, providing storage solutions for the residents in South Fort Worth, Alvarado, and Johnson County, Texas. Call us at 682-800-3949 for more information and current self storage prices.

Now, though, let’s talk about storage facilities for rent, what is available to you, and what it will cost you.

What can you store in storage facilities for rent?

This is a very common question, and a good question, because the items which should not be stored in a storage unit can cause some problems if they are.

You should not store perishables.  You should not store explosives or weapons.  In our professional opinion, unless you pay extra for climate-controlled storage, you should not store electronics in a storage unit, and you should not store some sensitive coverings like leather.  Collectibles are not a good idea; nor are paintings.  Everything else is reasonably safe to store. Having said that, we always recommend paying a minimal amount for renter’s insurance. Call your local insurance agent and get yourself covered . . . just in case. The insurance literally costs pennies on the dollar . . . less than that, actually . . . and for the peace of mind, it is well worth it.

What do storage facilities cost?

There is no way for us to give an accurate answer to this question, simply because by the time anyone reads it, the prices will have changed.

What we can say, without hesitation, is the bigger the storage spaces, the more they will cost.  That is a standard across the entire industry.  We can also tell you that prices will fluctuate even within the same city, so it is worth your time to play a little phone tag and get some price quotes from various storage companies in your city.  At the same time, ask about move-in specials; you just might save yourself some money that way.

Odds and ends.

What many people do not realize is the vast array of things which can be kept at storage spaces.  Mouser Self Storage features car storage.  It features RV storage and also boat storage units.  What might really blow your mind is the fact that we also have small shops for rent and hobby shops for rent, including lights, electricity for your tools, and 24/7 access.  You no longer have to dominate your garage while doing your hobby or small business; for a fraction of the cost of industrial space for rent in Fort Worth, you can rent a shop with easy access to I-35W, Highway 287, Highway 67, and FM 917, a thirty minute drive to Fort Worth Metro.
