Some Things Storage Facilities Have To Offer

If you have found your home cluttered with things that you need to store but don't have the room for or you have items you need to put in a safe location for any other reason, then consider self-storage. You can learn more about some of the great features a self-storage facility can offer you that will give you a proper place to store your things where you won't have to worry about them. 

Self-storage facilities are secure

While it's true that each storage facility will be set up and run the way management sees fit, it is also true that each facility will do its part to make sure that their customer's things are safe and secure inside the facility. This is why you will find that most of these places are fenced-in and require cards or codes to gain entry to the property. It's also why they have other security measures such as security cameras and sometimes security guards who patrol the premises. Along with the security measures, the facility has to protect all of the units. Your personal unit will also be locked with a lock only you have the key to. 

Self-storage facilities can offer climate control

Some, if not all, of the units may offer climate control; this is something that's commonly found in areas where weather conditions can be problematic for certain types of items that can be stored, such as delicate fabrics, artwork, and many other types of items. Not only will climate-controlled units be kept at a good temperature, but the humidity level is also controlled. 

Drive-up units for easier loading

Another thing you will find available to you at many of the facilities are units with drive-up access which can make loading and unloading your unit much easier. However, if you don't really need this, then you can get a unit without this access and in some facilities units without drive-up access will be offered at lower rates. 

Access to moving and storage supplies

You can get many of the moving and storage materials that you need from the storage facility as well. Some of these supplies include things like boxes, tape, packing peanuts, bubble wrap, labels, locks, and more. This can be helpful when you are moving your things in or out of your storage unit and you find that you are suddenly in need of these things because you won't have to stop what you are doing to travel to the store for the supplies you need.

Keep these things in mind as you look for a self-storage unit facility
