How to Choose a Storage Unit

You've made the decision that you need extra storage near Manhattan. Now you have to decide what self-storage unit is right for you. There are many different considerations that go into choosing a storage facility and an individual unit. Here are some of the things you should consider when selecting a storage facility.

Consider Size

Storage UnitsSize is, of course, the first and possibly the most important thing you need to decide on when selecting a storage facility. Most storage facilities offer sizing guidelines to help you choose the right fit. You can also find storage calculators online. Don't forget that you can stack boxes, but you won't want them stacked from floor to ceiling, as they will be difficult to access. It's also advisable to choose a unit with enough space for you to keep an access lane open for walking around so that all of your belongings are within easy reach.

Ask about Security

Security is a major concern in a storage facility. You need to feel confident that your belongings will be adequately protected. Find out what kind of security system the property has and whether they have video surveillance, security guards, and on-site managers around the clock to ensure the units aren't tampered with.

Understand the Access Hours

It's important that your storage unit be available to you when it fits into your schedule, so investigate the hours of operation of your facility. The office hours are the times during which someone is on-site to deal with rentals and other concerns. Gate hours are the times during which you can come in and out of the facility. Make sure these times fit into your schedule.

At Chelsea Mini Storage, we offer a range of storage unit sizes and an around-the-clock, multi-layered security system for the ultimate protection. To find out if we have the right storage unit for your needs, call (866) 755-9101.
