We all are down with finding cheap storage because, well, cheap means inexpensive, and saving our hard-earned cash is always a good thing, right?  Our main concern, regarding storage units, should always be focused on the security and reliability of the mini storage we are considering.  That’s how this article is going to help you, and if you need more pointers you can call us at (817) 439-1380.  We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, and we know all about cheap storage you can count on.

Cheap storage should include the following assurances . . .

What do you want from storage facilities?  Most people will answer with the following: good price, security, and easy access to their belongings. Let’s start with price.  How do you know you are being charged a good price for a storage unit?  Ask around?  Make several phone calls to other storage buildings and do a price comparison.  It is the only logical way to determine whether you are being charged a reasonable price for that supposedly “cheap storage.”  This one is on you.  Storage facilities are not going to advertise price comparisons.  They all know if they are the cheapest in a comparison, and if they are not there is no way they are advertising that fact, so you must do your due diligence and price shop.

Finding good secure self storage

There is a wide range of security in the mini storage business.  There are the places where there is no fencing around the perimeter and just an individual lock on each unit. There are places with chain link fences around them and a locked gate for access.  Going a step further, there is video monitoring with cameras covering the entire property, and then there are places with all those things plus an on-site management to provide further security.  The question is this: how secure do you want it, and are you willing to pay for that security?  Excess furniture requires one level of security; a baseball card collection worth tens-of-thousands of dollars demands a whole different level of security.  You will have to decide which works for your situation regarding secure self storage.

And finally you need to consider access to your mini storage.

How easy is it to access your belongings WHEN you need to access it?  Is there 24/7 access, because many people need that kind of timeless availability.  Secure, cheap storage does you no good if you can’t get to your belongings when you need to get to them.

Add it all together and you have the main criteria to consider regarding cheap storage in storage buildings.  Which of those criteria is most important to you is an individual call, so think about it before signing a lease on a unit.
