Self-storage units are great for those who want to retake their basement or spare room or for those with a growing hobby and nowhere else to put all of their stuff. But even if your home or office is not overflowing with too many possessions or materials, you might want to rent a local self-storage unit anyway just for the additional security that such a unit can provide. Here are just some of the reasons why you should contact a local self-storage company today.
You Have Valuable Antiques or Other Expensive Items You Want to Store Safely and at the Right Temperature
Maybe you've taken up collecting antiques, baseball cards, or other items with decent value to them. With some materials, it's not a good idea to keep them in the basement or attic long-term if you can't control the temperature in these areas. Beyond that, you are putting your collection at risk should your house ever fall victim to theft, a clogged pipe that leads to a flood, or another major incident that might accidentally damage this collection.
By storing these items at a self-storage unit, you can have peace of mind knowing that they are always under lock and key, and most self-storage companies will offer climate control for some units as well.
Keep Especially Valuable Materials or Inventory for Your Small Business in a Place That Has More Security
Maybe you have enough room in your new office building or warehouse to store what you need, but you feel uneasy about storing specific materials or goods that are of a high value. This could especially be the case if your small business does not yet have security cameras or any other kind of significant security setup. A self-storage facility typically has cameras on-site and may be able to keep these items more secure and under lock at all times until you can upgrade the security in your building or warehouse.
You Are Going on Vacation or Away From the Area for Some Time
Some self-storage facilities will also accept vehicles into the larger units that open like a garage door. Do you have an expensive car and you don't want to leave it outside in the street or even in the airport parking lot for a week or a month or even longer while you are away? Contact a local self-storage facility about units large enough to drive a car into so you can go on vacation with peace of mind.
I'm Tom Doberstein. I have to make a confession: I am absolutely addicted to social media. And that has been an excellent thing for me because this addiction has helped me become an expert in social media marketing. I never meant to become an expert in this subject, but I just couldn't help but strike up conversations with some of my favorite brands. Some of the conversations I have had with my favorite brands through social media have been very entertaining and have made me develop an interest in the ways that businesses can use social media and other Internet tools to promote their businesses.
