A typical storage scenario.

A husband and wife sell their home. Unfortunately, that home sells a full month before their new home is scheduled to close, meaning they need to store their household belongings somewhere for a month.  They decide to avail themselves of the local self-storage company.

Their possessions include the furnishings of a two-bedroom home, but the potpourri found in their garage. They have never rented storage units before, and they are unsure how large of a unit they need.

The scenario just mentioned is fairly typical, and it plays out daily across the country. The fact is that most homeowners have no way of knowing how much space all of their belongings will require. Why would they? How could they?  Thus, they are left with trusting the staff at the self-storage company to advise them on the right unit for their needs.  Surely, they will be advised honestly.

Beware of the “bigger is better” sales pitch.

Here is an irrefutable fact about self-storage: bigger units cost more than smaller units and thus will make more profit for the storage company.  Stated another way, it is more profitable for a company to rent a 10’x20’ unit than it is to rent a 5’x10’ unit.

Some companies (not all, but some) will offer units using the “bigger is better” sales pitch.  Play it safe, they will say, you just might need the extra space in the larger unit, don’t take a chance on the smaller unit, most likely you have forgotten some things which will also need to be stored.

While, logically, this all may be true, it also negates one important point: A trained staff member should know exactly how much storage space you need and should be able to give you some tips on how to “find extra room” in any storage unit rented.

Our philosophy when renting spaces.

Our philosophy at Mouser Self Storage is based on experience.  It is based upon thousands of rental transactions, covering thousands of different scenarios.  And our philosophy is based on a belief that if you treat customers with respect, and if you are honest with them, they will return to you again, and repeat business is the lifeblood of any company.

At Mouser, we have this storage thing down to a science. We have been there, done that, and could easily write a book about it. We understand that money is tight in this economy, so we give you tips on how to load a storage unit to get maximum storage. In other words, we advise and then we recommend what you need and not what will best increase our bottom line.
