Considering renting a mini storage building for some of your boxed up, bagged up and closet controlling personal items that seem to be in the way? If so, you will find it to be a cost effective, convenient and safe space for your belongings that will give your house, garage or attic a break from all of the boxes and clutter, and give your home an open, clean and spacious feeling that you and your family will appreciate. After all, there has got to be a better place to store your artificial Christmas tree besides the far corner of your garage, right? You only use it for about thirty days out of the year, yet you end up tripping over it every time you try to get out to your work bench to find a drill. It makes no sense to tie up your well used personal space, or space that could be more effectively utilized, when chances are, there is an affordable mini storage building within a mile or two of your home right now.
A mini storage building is durable and weather resistant. The rooms are usually very easily accessed, and you are the only person who has a key to it. Many renters find that they can get to their belongings twenty four hours a day, just in case someone had that sudden urge to retrieve Grandmas beloved box of bake ware on a whim but it is after regular business hours. With most facilities, this is not a problem at all. Often, you will be given a security code that allows you on premises at the touch of a button or two, so your access is assured, day or night.
Safety is always a concern when renters choose to house their belongings in a mini storage building . When choosing, drive by at night to insure that the parking lot and doorways of the units are well lit. A dark, empty parking lot is a welcome sign to would be trespassers and others with ill intent. Ask the representative at the facility about what kinds of security measures they offer, be it controlled access gates, closed circuit security cameras or regular security patrol. You may be surprised to find out that sometimes it is safer to store your belongings in a mini storage building than it is to store them in your garage. Why?
Home invasions are on the rise, and even small thefts are intrusive, often devastating events that shatter the sense of trust and security that you have built up around your home. Security is paramount, whether it is at home, or off property. Companies know this, and they value their renters enough to take measures to insure that their belongings will be safe from thieves, as well as from damage caused by fire and water. Even so, it is always in your best interest to purchase renters insurance. Rare occurrences can happen, and you will want to be sure that you are covered.
Before you place your items in a mini storage building , it is helpful to make an inventory list of the items you are putting in, and their location within the room itself. Keep the list by the door. When you need something, you will know exactly where to look. Make it easy on yourself, and take a little time when packing to label boxes well. Who needs the hassle of having to dig through ten boxes just to find one item? You will thank yourself later if you plan ahead. So go on. Free up that garage. It was meant for cars, you know. Give your basement a makeover. The kids would love a ping pong table. Spare yourself the distraction of clutter, and your home returns to its original purpose, as a place to live, rather than a place to keep stuff.
