The Hidden Costs Of Self-Storage Units
While a self-storage unit might seem convenient for storing furniture, seasonal items, appliances, files, collectibles, motorcycles, or even cars, knowing the potential hidden costs matters. We’ll unveil a few of those sneaky expenses of self-storage units so you can make the wisest choice for your storage needs.
The Monthly Rental Fee Payments Can Add Up Over Time & Become A Financial Burden.
Moreover, many facilities charge additional fees like administrative costs, security deposits, climate control, and sometimes mandatory insurance. Before you commit, ask about all potential extra expenses.
It Takes Time & Effort To Relocate Your Belongings To & From The Unit.
Ask yourself the following questions:
• How close is it in proximity to my home?
• How often will I need to access my stuff?
• Do I need to rent a truck or hire a moving company to transport my things?
Additionally, if your storage unit is located on an upper floor or at the back of the storage building, you might need to rent dollies or pay extra for convenient access.
There Is Always A Potential Risk Of Theft Or Damage To Your Items.
While many facilities have security measures, such as cameras and gated access, do your research beforehand. Read reviews, visit the facility in person, and ask about their security measures, which can help you make an informed decision.
