If you have to relocate soon, you probably are looking into your local self storage companies. Whether you are simply needing extra room, or are in limbo while trying to find a place to rent that would allow pets, there are several options for whatever your needs are. But as with anything in life, there are many things to take in consideration, to ensure your property is not damaged, your transition goes smoothly, as well as, not hurting your pocketbook. Most of the local self storage companies offer the same services such as, on-site truck rental, 24 hour access, alarms, live in managers, as well as video surveillance. Depending on your wants and needs, many offer units for Climate Control, RV/Boat, Wine Storage, Office Space, and Portable Storage. Depending on how many rooms of furniture you have, this will determine the size of the unit you will need to rent at your local self storage company. The sizes range from as small as, 5x5, on up to a 20x30. If you have a large house, you most likely will need the 20x30 unit. One thing to keep in mind is: are you going to be storing sensitive media items such as, records, photos, or CD's? If the answer is yes, I strongly suggest a climate control unit. Many local self storage companies offer these units, and the cost is a little more, but you cannot put a price on your collectibles. These units allow a steady temperature all year round, air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter to ensure your valuable items are not destroyed by excessive heat or cold.
