Choosing the Right Storage Facility

So, you’re getting ready to clear out your house for the big move in a couple months.  Have you taken advantage of the benefits that storage facilities offer?  There may not be room for every single one of your belongings to make the trip with you, and this is where storage facilities can come in handy.

Questions to ask about storage facilities

Self storage units are great, but there are a number of advantages to using a storage facility like the one Platinum Moving Services offers, the first and foremost being it’s high level of security.
Security – storage rental from moving companies provide the most reliable security.  You can be assured your belongings are in good hands.  It’s still good to ask questions, though.  Are there security guards, gates or both?  Is there 24/7 monitoring?  You could be storing some of your most cherished possessions, so you want to make sure you are getting the highest security you can.
With Platinum Moving Services’ storage services, you are guaranteed maximum security!  Our modern warehousing facilities are electronically monitored 24/7.
Size of the storage units – how many sizes of storage units are offered?  Is there only one size available or several?  When you have several different sizes to choose from, it’s much easier to find the storage unit that most efficiently suits your needs.
Is the storage facility climate controlled?  Find out if the storage units are climate controlled, which means the units maintain a stable temperature (usually between 50 and 75 degrees), no matter how cold or hot it is outside.  Climate controlled storage facilities are especially important if you’re looking for long-term storage, because climate control helps prevent:
•    Mold, mildew and bacteria growth
•    Dust and dirt buildup
•    Corrosion and rust
Items that are typically stored in climate controlled storage facilities include:
•    Electronics
•    DVDs and CDs
•    Tax files and other important paperwork
•    Clothing and furs
•    Paintings and photographs
Fortunately, many storage facilities offer all of these features – reliable security, units of different sizes and climate control.  Warehousing facilities (Platinum provides these) have the most amount of room.  They are great for bulk storage and large items like industrial computers, printers, couches, etc.
