Self-Storage Tips

In addition to knowing whichstorage unit sizes you might need,you should also do some research about the facility you choose in order to keep your belongings safe. Remember that security is important, and a location that’s well lit, has a sturdy fence, and is protected by coded access is far less likely to be robbed than one that has no visible deterrents for criminals.

When you have chosen your storage facility, read the contract carefully before signing. If you see any terms you don’t understand, ask the staff member on hand to explain them to you before you agree to anything. Check to see if the facility has a manager living on-site, and look for a business that offers little extras like a free utility trailer for use while moving items into the facility. Touches like these set superior storage companies apart from mediocre ones. Handy Space offers all this and more, and is the best storage facility in the San Antonio area.
