At some point in life, there comes a time when you find yourself surrounded by a lot of stuff and you want to find good, cheap self-storage. Many people are not ready to part with their belongings and even not ready to pay a lot of money to store them. While the words good and cheap don’t usually go together, when it comes to self-storage they sometimes do.
Before you give any of your money away, there will of course be certain factors you would want to consider. Factors such as security, gated or not, access to the unit for yourself, and the cost are questions you should ask every storage unit facility in order to help you make your decision.
Online: If you want to find a cheap storage locker in your area conduct a Google, Yahoo, or Ping search for ‘cheap storage units’ or ‘ affordable storage units’ followed by your zip code. You will get info about any storage unit facilities in your local area that use the word ‘cheap’ or ‘affordable’ in their description. Once you locate a few storage unit facilities in your area call them up and ask all the questions you have in mind.
Yellow Pages: Searching in the yellow pages under ‘self-storage’ requires you to make effort by dialing all the numbers one by one to ask the main question i.e. how much they charge for your ideal size storage unit per month. After you have called a couple of them you can determine which ones offer the cheapest prices and then call those specific storage unit facilities again to ask all of the other questions you have.
Hit the streets: This would obviously take the most of your time. It requires you to get in your car and drive to the different storage facilities to acquire price information. One advantage to this type of searching is that you get to see how the facility looks. You can simply look around, ask all the questions you want and request to see the storage unit you are considering to rent out. Make sure to get a business card so that you may call the cheaper storage unit facility later on.
