How Do I Know Which Storage Company To Use?
There are many self-storage companies in Wakefield, Sheffield and the surrounding areas. As a person who is looking for self storage the variety may be a bit confusing – with so many to choose from how do you know which one will give you the best service? To help you, we have compiled here the qualities that you should be looking for in a self storage facility.
• The first thing to consider is how safe your items will be. No one puts items in storage that they wouldn't mind losing. A good self storage facility will have 24 hour CCTV camera surveillance as well as other access barriers.
• You should look for a self storage facility that is weather controlled. One of the biggest problems with long term storage is that items become damaged because the facility becomes damp in wet or icy weather. Choose one that guarantees that whatever you store will come out in the same condition as when it went in.
• A good self storage facility will make the process of storing with them easy. Most will ask only for some form of ID and an address.
• Find a storage facility that makes it easy to place and remove items. This means that you should be able to drive your car right up to the door. The units should all be on the ground in order to make it easy to store items.
• Find a facility that has an employee around all the time. This shows that they care about helping clients who may not be very sure of what their storage needs are.
• You should also look into whether you can access your items on every day of the week and what times they are open every day.
• How long is the minimum storage duration? There are some that offer a month but the best are those that allow you to rent for a little as a week. This means that you can move your items without losing too much money.
• You should also look into whether they have containers of different sizes – you don’t want to rent more space than necessary.
• Lastly, look at price. Although there are so many self storage facilities in the area there are some that charge more than others without offering anything significantly better. You should pay more than you have to.
One such facility is Boylin’s Selfstore. They offer all these things and more. You can find out more by calling them on 01226 321800 or visiting their website, http://www.boylinsselfstore.co.uk/
