If you’re considering renting storage for your items, but are confused as to what all is being talked about in the package you’re considering, here are a few things to consider.

Climate Control – More and more facilities are offering climate controlled mini storage. The most basic level guarantees that your unit will remain within a certain temperature range. This can often mean anywhere between 50 and 80 degrees and helps to make sure that your items are protected from extreme heat and extreme cold which may damage them.

Security – A large majority of storage facilities now offer 24 hour locked/keypad security. This allows you peace of mind knowing that your belongings are under surveillance at all time. You can further secure your belongings by using a lock on the door of your unit.

Unit Size – You need to rent the unit that will best facilitate your needs and storage concerns. You may need a small floor unit, or you may need a unit that will work for RV storage or auto storage. Pricing will vary so be sure to talk with the manager about what your needs are and what options are available.

What You Can’t Store – There are a lot of things store in a storage unit such as animals, perishable items, firearms, (this can vary by state), explosives, items which are flammable, noxious or hazardous materials and stolen property. If you have any items which you are unsure of, consult with the manager to see what the policies are in your unit.

Keeping these things in mind can help to make your storage rental a more positive experience. If you’re looking for either short term mini storage or long term mini storage in Joplin, MO, contact our offices today and let us know how we can help you.
