How to choose the best self-storage facility
How much space? First, figure out how much space you are going to need. A mini-storage unit can tightly packed to save you money. Consider using boxes and shelving for a good fit.
Is it in a good location? Picking a storage center in North County makes it convenient if you live here. But also consider the location of the available unit in the facility. Make sure you can easily get your car, van, pick-up, or even semi-truck to the front of the roll-top door, if necessary.
Cost of the storage unit? – Prices for self-storage units in North County vary. The best way to compare pricing is to do the math and figure out how much it will cost you per square foot. Example: If a 5’x10′ foot unit rents for $50 per month, then you are renting 50-square-feet for $1 per-square-foot. Now compare that price to other storage centers that meet your needs. Remember to ask about discounts or a free first month’s rent.
How long will you need it? Plan ahead for how long you will need to store your stuff. You may be able to get discounts for agreeing to stay a year. It’s usually cheaper than renting the space on a month-to-month basis.
What are the access hours? – Ask about the facilities’ business hours and whether you’ll have access to your storage space after hours.
Is security good? – Look for self-storage centers that have some security features like working cameras and onsite management. If they don’t then expect to pay a little less. Mars Mega Storage in Paso Robles has one of the most secure facilities in North San Luis Obispo County.
Are you covered by insurance? – Many mini storage companies sell extra insurance for your goods. Check first with your homeowners or renters insurance to see if it covers household goods outside of your home.
