With more Brookfield residents using self-storage every year, it’s important that they consider what they need before signing an indoor storage contract. If you’re considering renting a self-storage unit this year, consider:
What will you store?
Thinking about what you will be storing will help you determine the amount of storage space you need and whether or not you will need it to be heated. For instance, an auto enthusiast who wants to store an extra vehicle has very different storage needs than an artist who needs a little extra storage space to store art supplies.
How much can you afford?
Indoor self-storage prices can vary widely based on the availability of climate control, capacity, and location. So, be sure to understand what you can afford before signing a binding contract.
How often will you visit your unit?
If you plan on moving things around in your unit a lot, you may want to factor in extra storage space to give yourself room to move and keep things organized. If you don’t, there may not be enough room for you to safely maneuver.
Have you thought about insurance?
Depending on the value of what you will be storing, insurance may be a must-have. And, tenants shouldn’t assume that their homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policies will cover rented self-storage units. If you’re not sure, ask your insurance provider. And, if it is not included in your policy, ask your storage facility if they offer tenant insurance.
