What To Consider When Shopping For a Storage Facility

Everyone’s needs for renting storage space are different. At Montgomery Self Storage, we’re in the business of helping customers find the right solutions for their storage needs. Often that takes a minute to help them define what their storage goals are. Here are some of the things you should take in to consideration when selecting your storage facility.

Customer Service and Unit Options Available

Not all self-storage centers hire professional, on-site managers. You should have a comfortable feeling from the minute you arrive and sit down in the office. It’s important to know that should there ever be an issue, someone is available to help take care of it. Additionally, the facility should be clean and well cared for if you are going to leave your possessions there.

While you may only be interested in a certain size and type of unit now, it’s important that the property offers a wide variety of units. Make sure that if you need to upgrade to a larger or climate controlled unit in the future, that the property offers those options.

Lastly, if the ease of paying online is important to you, make sure that is an option.

Security Features and Access

Ask about the security provided. Do they offer a 24-hour surveillance system? Is the gate access computer controlled? These things should be important to you when selecting your facility. Also ask about the access hours and make sure they align with your needs.


Price and Signing Up

While price is a very important element in the decision making process, be sure to inquire about any specials and discounts available. Once you have gathered all of the information, you are ready to make an informed decision.

At Montgomery Self Storage, we know it can be a bit challenging to search for the right fit for your storage requirements. We hope that you find this information helpful and will consider renting with us. More than anything, we expect our industry to meet your standards and hope that you have the best possible storage experience.
