What to look for when selecting a storage facility.

July 2020

Not sure what to look for when selecting a storage facility? This post will help you determine what features to look for when choosing which storage facility will have the right features for your needs.

1)Is the facility clean? 

The cleanliness of the storage facility you are considering is always worth noting. A dirty facility can indicate poor management and lack of pride.

  • Take a walk around
  • Take a look at the inside of locker similar to one you are interested in
  • Chat with the staff
  • Ask other tenants
  • Read Google reviews

2)Do you feel safe? 

Do you feel safe at the facility of choice? Is the facility gated to prevent uninvited guest from accessing the facility? Would you feel safe accessing your locker around the clock? Do you notice video cameras? If the answer is no, do you feel safe anyways? Here are a few examples of items that could require extra precautions:

  • Items with a high value
  • Items that hold sentimental value
  • Inventory
  • Items impacted by its environment
  • Paper work

3)Do you feel welcomed? 

Although, you may not need assistance when at your storage facility, friendly staff can make a big difference. If the facilities you are contemplating renting from has staff that make you feel welcomed, it will make your entire storage experience better. As an added bonus, by doing this research you can learn about what is readily available to you. At Total Storage, we sell moving boxes and offer free use of our truck on the day you move in (how dandy!!).
