Answers to Common Self Storage Facility Questions

Posted on: December 10, 2018 | by: Tri-Village Self Storage January 4, 2019

When new renters enter our storage facility, they sometimes have a few questions about storage units and the rental process. Generally, we tend to see the same questions asked. In order to make our renters feel more comfortable, we decided to answer some of these questions below.

Three Common Self Storage Questions

Here are three commonly asked storage questions:

  • Question number 1: Are storage units secure?
  • Questions number 2: Are storage units expensive
  • Question number 3: Is a climate controlled storage unit necessary?

Are Storage Units Secure?

Many people believe that storage facilities are not secure. But that is not the case with Tri-Village Self Storage. Our storage facilities are monitored 24/7 using state-of-the-art recorded video surveillance. For extra protection, we have tenant insurance available at our storage facilities. With all of our security measures in check, there is no need to worry when renting with Tri-Village Self Storage.

How Much Do Storage Units Cost?

The price of your storage unit will vary with the size of the unit, the floor the storage unit is on and if it is a climate controlled storage unit or a traditional storage unit. The bigger the storage unit, the more expensive it will be. Climate controlled storage units are also more expensive than traditional storage units.

People often assume storage units are expensive. At Tri-Village, we strive to offer fair prices to our customers. Our storage facilities will often run move-in specials making storing with Tri-Village Self Storage an affordable solution.

Is Climate Controlled Storage Necessary?

A climate controlled storage unit is necessary when storing items that are sensitive to fluctuations in temperature. Some examples of items that are sensitive to fluctuations in temperature include leather or wooden furniture, electronics, appliances, musical instruments and clothing. This list by no means encompasses all of the items that require climate controlled storage.

If you’re unsure of whether or not your items require a climate controlled storage unit, talk to the storage professional at the facility.
