Here at Allstate Self-Storage we bring you the info you need to know to leverage self-storage as a space solution. We go in-depth on specific tips to get the most out of your rented space, or the value of tenant insurance. Sometimes that means we may go a bit too deep. This time on the Storage News blog, we are going to zoom out a bit and answer maybe the simplest question: “what is a self-storage unit?”
What is a Self-Storage Unit?
Simply put, a self-storage unit is like a garage you don’t have to try and park in. They look a lot like rows of garage doors, in which rooms ranging in size are able to be rented out for individual use. You pick a size, pack up your stuff, drive up to the unit and store. Lock it up, pay your rent monthly, and your belongings remain under lock and key, tucked out of your way for as long as you need it.
These can be useful for any number of possible reasons.
• Downsizing homes
• Moving in with friends, family, significant other
• Clearing out garage space
• Simplifying your life
• Going to college
• As storage for a small business
• Storing extra cars or motorcycles
The list really does go on and on. So long as you need extra space, a self-storage unit can be the answer. What makes it ‘self’ storage? Well, self-storage facilities like us provide the space but you the renter do all the moving and actual storing. You put a lock and key on that you prefer and we do the rest by providing secured premises. With gates, surveillance, and restricted access we provide the security of knowing that while your belongings are out of the way, they are still safe.
When it comes to self-storage units, the name of the game is freedom. Freedom to rent and use, freedom from clutter, freedom to stop anytime. It’s meant to make the rest of your life easier whether through a life transition like a move or simply getting all the winter holiday decorations out of your living room.
