Type's of Storage

Storage comes in many flavors;
1.Temporary where your moving and need to store your items for a set period of time.
2.Permanent where you just need extra space.
3.Vehicle storage, you need a place for the RV or project car, boat etc...
4.Commercial storage where you might want the security of off site storage or you just need the extra space.

Each of these problems require different solutions. Check out our web site for more suggestions
1.Temporary storage, go for the best bang for the buck, get the smallest unit you can fit your items into. You know its only in there for 8-9 weeks so you won't have to be searching through it to get at needed items. Temporary storage plan on moving it in and than moving it out.
2.Permanent storage, think how many items do I need to access? Go with a larger unit, makes your searches much easier. When packing unit separate areas Christmas stuff, seasonal items, yard care items, what ever your storing keep similar items together, makes searching much easier.
3.Vehicle is easy decide if you want inside or outside storage, think of car covers and pest control.
4.Commercial storage the best suggestion I can make is go with the largest unit you can afford. You will expand, your inventory will always change. One month you need a 10X10 the next a 15X20. You really don't want to move sheds all the time, so go for a large one. Many commercial users start with one shed and within months have 3 large units.

Remember these are generalized statements each and everyone situation is different, these are general suggestions. If you know you don't need to access your items go for a smaller unit. If you need to get at your stuff go for the larger unit, it really saves a lot of head aches. Don't forget a good Disc lock and insurance (check with your homeowners or renters policy to see if off premise storage is covered, if not use a service like SAFESTOR) We do have a lot more info on our web site;
