Why should I rent storage space on the ground floor? Does it make a difference?
There is a huge benefit to having storage space on the ground floor. Frequently you can pull right up to the door. Loading and unloading is much easier and quicker when you do not have to deal with long hallways, stairways or waiting for your turn to use the elevator.
Why are pitched roofs important?
Pitched roofs allow the heat load in a building to be above the items you have stored, not in them. Buildings with pitched roofs tend to be much cooler in the summer months and less prone to leaks than a flat roof and the rain better.
How to decide?
Self-storage facilities are not the same. There are many different features that separate them from each other. An educated consumer is the best tool for finding the facility that will meet your needs. From the street, they appear the same but ask the following questions. These questions will help you decide which facility is right for your needs.
Is the facility built with brick or metal?
Brick construction is more durable during inclement weather.
Does the facility have pitched roofs or a flat roof?
Pitched roofed buildings shed the rain better and have a lower temperature inside the storage space during hot weather.
Are all of the storage spaces on ground level?
Certain facilities have second and third story space and require access through stairwells or freight elevators.
Does the facility offer a large variety of sizes to fit your exact needs?
Does the facility have surveillance cameras?
Does the facility have a refundable deposit instead of administrative fees?
Can you pull your vehicle directly in front of the door to the storage space?
At U-Stor-It Mini Storage the answer to all these questions is YES!!
