When you’re on the hunt for a storage facility, there are several factors to consider to ensure you’re getting a good deal in a safe space with the right features for your needs. Storage facilities are abundant in Utah, which is why we’ve provided this guide to help you make a good decision.
One of the most important factors to consider is security. There is no reason to store important belongings somewhere if you’re worried it’s unsafe. Not only should your unit be safely secured, but the entire facility should be a safe space. Ask about camera locations and usage, alarms, security guard shifts, and more. Additionally, you’ll want to ensure the surrounding area is safe.
Another factor to consider is accessibility. You want to be able to conveniently access your items while also knowing it’s secure. Accessibility refers location of the facility, how you get into the facility and your individual unit, whether there are stairs or not, and more. As you tour the facility, make sure the process of accessing your items is straightforward.
Next item to look at is the overall cleanliness of the facility. A dirty facility shows they are likely not working to maintain the property. Property maintenance is important when storing various items. You don’t want damaged items from water exposure, pests, mold, or something breaking and landing on your items. Look around for water pooling or animal droppings, and make sure the units and structures are in good condition.
Another consideration many people don’t think of is the possibility of upgrading or minimizing your unit if your situation changes. Your storage needs may fluctuate, and you want to know that it’s possible to move your items to a smaller unit if you need to pull some things out for a while or a bigger unit if you end up needing to send more items off site.
Consider asking the facility what specific amenities they offer. Maybe there a wi-fi option on site that will make it easier for you to use a device while you’re organizing your unit. Or perhaps you need a climate-controlled unit for specific items. Maybe drive-up access is necessary or a large, uncovered space for a boat or RV. Make sure they offer what is needed for your items. It should work for your specifics.
