Why rent storage space? Despite the fact that there are tens of thousands of self storage places in the United States, and despite the fact they have been a part of the American landscape since the 1960’s, it is still a fact that millions of Americans have never rented storage units.  And many of them really don’t know how versatile storage spaces are, or why so many people rent them each month.

We are going to answer those questions in this article by Mouser Self Storage, serving the Greater South Fort Worth/Alvarado/Johnso County area from our location at 917 Industrial Park in Alvarado. Call us at 682-800-3949 for more information about current pricing and storage unit availability.

Reasons to rent storage space.

Here is just a partial list of reasons why you might rent storage space:

  • To compensate for the moving stress
  • To provide more space at home
  • To ensure the safety of vehicles in the offseason
  • To help organize home repairs
  • To store the things of their loved ones
  • To free up a dorm room in the summer
  • To organize an inventory of enterprises
  • To keep valuable items safe from theft or damage
  • To keep items safe why deployed in the Armed Forces
  • Small hobby shops.
  • RV self storage
  • Boat storage units

Fact: the self-storage industry is a $44 billion industry in the United States, with currently over 60,000 self-storage companies available. Just go for a drive some Sunday afternoon and see how long it takes you to pass a storage company. They are seemingly everywhere, and despite the vagaries of the economy, the storage industry is rapidly growing. Perhaps, instead of asking why rent storage space, an easier question to answer might be “why not rent storage space?”

The cost.

Let’s assume that you are reading this article, and you just happen to be in the minority of Americans who has never rented storage space.  Why could you expect to pay for a storage unit?

The prices depend upon the size, primarily, and the sizes range from small (5’x10’ or 10’x10’ being the smallest), and 20’x30’ being the largest for household goods, some as large as fifty feet in length for RV storage space. The smallest units will cost in the $40-$60 range per month, with the largest costing in the $150-$250 per month range.

Is it worth it to you? We can’t answer that question, but we can tell you that, primarily, most people choose to rent storage spaces because they want their possessions to be safe for a short period of time.

The concern over security.

And that brings us to the question of security, which is always front and center for newcomers thinking of renting self-storage.  Are storage units more secure than your garage? Oh my, yes! Are they more secure than your backyard? Oh my, yes! In fact, if they employ the four stages of security, they are as safe as you could hope for, and given the low rental cost, offer a great value.
