3 Reasons to Use Self-Storage Storage

Understanding some of the best reasons to use self-storage is one of the best pieces of knowledge we can offer. While not everyone may need or be looking for self-storage, there are plenty of applications to understanding and utilizing what your local facilities provide when you need it. 

Clutter can be stressful, and at Wise Space™ Storage, we know what a world of difference having a little bit more space makes. We pride ourselves on being the best option in Boise self-storage. Here are just a few of the biggest reasons why our storage units are the solution you’ve been looking for. 

Safety First 

Self-storage units offer a secure place to house your valuables. Often, these units are more secure than the average home. Each unit is locked and protected by a fenced perimeter, surveillance cameras, gated entry, exterior lighting and a combination of security guards and onsite management. 

Storage units also offer you an added element of safety. Some items pose potential hazards to your home or family, like the leftover materials from your last renovation project. Instead of keeping chemicals or tools in your garage, a self-storage unit can keep dangerous items away from curious children and eliminate the risk of possible accidents. 

Opt for High Ceilings

Renting a self-storage unit can be a great way to reduce clutter and free up needed space at your home or office. A storage unit is a smart place to keep a few boxes, old appliances, memorabilia, heirlooms, and toys. 

Plus, as professionals in the storage industry, we know how much of a difference high ceilings make, especially when it comes to stacking. 

Homes often do not have the storage space to hold large items. For instance, items like ski boats, canoes or vintage cars, may not fit in your garage or driveway. A self-storage unit could give you a place to store such items and provides protection from the weather with added security. Large items like recreational vehicles (kayaks, canoes, and paddleboards), ski's, and lots of gear, having enough vertical space is a must. 

So, if you’re looking to get the best deal for your dime, be sure to look for storage units with high ceilings, plenty of space and other amenities to make the most of your storage experience. 

Dig into Full Course Amenities 

While renting a storage unit, be sure to dig in, do the research and ask all of the questions regarding the amenities offered at your facility. The best self-storage facilities will offer unit insurance for your valuables. These policies will replace your items if they are stolen or damaged while in storage. Self-storage insurance is often cheaper than homeowner’s or renter’s insurance. 

You may want to also inquire about any climate-controlled units, packing supplies offered on-site, trolleys, dollies, security systems and more.
