This can be considered a quick primer on how to choose among storage facilities. There is only so much information one can cram into a five-hundred word article, but we are confident we can hit the most important points here. If you have other questions about this article, or points not touched upon in this article, give us a call at (817) 439-1380. We are Blue Mound Self Storage, and self storage is our passion and business.

Is price your motivating factor in choosing a self storage facility?

If so you have many prices to choose from.  We are located in the Fort Worth area, and in the Greater Fort Worth area there are literally dozens of storage facilities to choose from.  As you might expect, the prices differ among those storage facilities, so simply calling around should net you the cheap storage unit you are looking for.  Make sure, though, that you do the math.  Factor in the move-in specials when you are computing total storage price long-term.  Make sure the price is locked in for the length of your contract so there are no price-increase surprised in six months.

Other factors to consider in self storage include . . .

Security must always be considered unless, of course, you simply don’t care about your possessions, which is unfathomable.  What kind of security is offered? Is there video monitoring hour-to-hour, or is th video camera there for show?  Is there on-site management? What kind of security measures are built into the front gate and the individual locks on the storage units?  There are some storage units in the Fort Worth area which a ten-year old with a crowbar could break into.  We think you are looking for something a bit more secure self storage than that, correct?

What other storage until amenities are available?

Are there wide aisles between storage units for easy access? Is there climate control?  Climate controlled storage units can save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars in damage to your possessions in areas where extreme climate is the norm rather than the exception.  In the Fort Worth area, temperatures in the 100’s are the norm in summertime, and those types of temperatures can destroy cloth, leather, and wood surfaces.  It pays to consider climate controlled self storage if you can afford a few extra dollars per month.

Roll it all up and you have a basic primer on storage facility options to consider.  The good news is there are many storage facilities to choose from, so take your time and make an informed decision.  And in the Fort Worth area, the informed decision is, more often than not, Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, the trusted storage units in Fort Worth for a number of years.  Give us a call.  We are locally owned and operated, meaning Texans looking after the possessions of Texans, the way it’s been for hundreds of years.  When what you store is important to you and your family, there is one name worth remembering: Blue Mound 287 Self Storage.
