Three Tips to Help You Choose the Right Storage Facility
With so much commercial storage in Las Vegas it can be tempting to just pick one to get your search over. However, using the advice we’ve provided below can keep you from choosing a storage facility that doesn’t suit your needs.
Check the Storage Unit Sizes
First and foremost, you’ll want to make sure that the facility has the right size unit that you need. Storage units can be as small as 5′ x 5′ x 5′ or as large as a room, usually 10′ x 30′. You have to assess all the things you want to put into a storage unit. If you have small items, this won’t be too complicated, but if you have larger items like furniture, you’ll need to make sure that the consider all three dimensions because storage units can be shallow or deep. Not all facilities offer extremely large or very small storage spaces, so make sure you’re aware of what they offer.
Some storage units offer 24-hour access while others may only offer access during business hours. You need to decide if 24-hour access is important to you. As far as accessibility is concerned, you’ll want to also make sure it’s not too accessible–you don’t want non-clients who may possibly be thieves to be able to wander in at any time they want. Accessibility should be easy for people who are renting the unit, but hard for people who are not.
Observe the Conditions of the Facilities
The condition of the facilities is indicative of how safe your possessions are. If the facility is being kept up, is clean, and has good, working security cameras then chances are they will make sure your possessions are safe. However, if the facility owners/operators don’t care about their own business, they’re probably not going to care about your stuff.
