We are not big fans of the words “cheap storage units.” They carry with them the impression that they are poorly constructed, flimsy, and totally unreliable.  Let’s, instead, say affordable storage units and move on with an answer to this question.

We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving North Fort Worth with affordable self storage solutions for a variety of items/belongings.  Call us at 817-439-1380 for more information about current pricing and availability.

Cheap storage units pricing.

We will let you in on a little insider information about storage unit pricing: there is very little difference between the most expensive storage company and the least expensive storage company.  Take the smallest storage unit available, say a 5’x10’; that unit may rent for $45 at one place, $50 at another, and average $47 per month for all storage facilities in the entire city.  The marketplace tends to regulate prices in the storage industry, which is a good thing for you, the customer, because it means even the most expensive storage company is not that much more expensive than the least expensive.

If saving money is an issue for you, pay attention to monthly specials, which are common in this industry. “First month free,” or “10% for military” can mean big savings over time.

Concentrate on security.

If what we say is true, and it is, to our way of thinking, the most important consideration should be security.  How safe will your possessions be at a particular storage facility?  Saving $15 per month may seem like a great deal, but f your possessions are not safe, how great a deal is it really?

There are four levels of security in the self storage industry:

  • Fenced perimeter of the storage property
  • Video surveillance and monitoring.
  • Computerized access kay cards.
  • On-site management.

If you find a storage facility which offers all four levels of security, and the price is “in the range” with other storage facilities which are not so secure, your choice should be obvious.

Concentrate on options.

Most people simply are not aware of the wide variety of options in the self storage industry.  Let’s look at just a few offered by our own Blue Mound 287 Self Storage:

  • Car storage
  • RV self storage
  • Boat storage units
  • Small hobby shops
  • Climate control self storage
  • Electrical outlets
  • Lighting
  • Outdoor covered storage
  • Access to free truck for moving items

As you can see, the words “cheap storage units” take on a whole new meaning in the storage industry once you take into account all that is included/available.  In our professional opinion, nothing is more important than the security aspect.  The replacement cost of  your items will far exceed the extra ten dollars per month you might pay at another storage facility not labeled “cheap storage unit.”
