So Many Storage Spaces; How To Choose The Right One For You

Looking at storage spaces, with the intent to rent one, can be confusing.  There are just so many to choose from.  Not only are there multiple self storage companies in most cities, but then, in the individual companies, there are multiple storage unit sizes to choose from.  How can a person possibly know which storage unit to choose?

We will help you with that question in this article. We are Blue Mound 287 Self Storage, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with topnotch car storage, boat storage, RV storage, or just everyday storage of spare furniture, boxes of mementoes, and other personal items. Call us at 817-439-1380 for more information.

How to choose storage spaces

There are several ways you can determine how large a storage unit to rent. The first way, and probably the best way, we would suggest is to simply measure everything you have to store and determine using that method.  It’s a bit tedious, to be sure, but it will give you an accurate measuring stick.  Just keep in mind that most storage units are not only measured by length and width, but also vertically, meaning most of them are a minimum of eight-feet tall, perfect for your stacking experts.

The second way is to simply ask an effort at the storage company.  Most of them have the experience necessary to give you accurate information.  Just make sure it is a trustworthy company with good reviews, so you aren’t rented something larger than you really need.

How to choose storage spaces from a particular storage company

This question is a bit tougher.  If price is not a factor in your decision, then we would base the decision on the security provided at the storage company.  Our own Blue Mound 287 offers four levels of security for our customers:

  • Fencing around the entire property
  • Individualized entrance keys for each customer, with only one access point for entrance and departure
  • Video surveillance of the entire storage property
  • On-site management of the property

That four-point plan offers the best-possible security, and anything less than that is not the best.

How Blue Mound 287 makes it easy

We actually simplify the whole process for our customers. If you look on the home page of our website, there we list the sizes of each of our storage units, and we approximate what you can expect to store in each size we offer.  That approximation is based on many years of experience, and it is uncannily accurate.  Our customers greatly appreciate that we have spared them the process of measuring all of their items, and customer satisfaction is the cornerstone of our company.

So, there you have it, our suggestions on how to choose a storage unit and a storage company.  Hopefully, these suggestions will help you in the future.
