Self Storage

 Self Storage

The term "Self Storage" is short for "self-service storage", and is also known as "mini storage" . Self Storage facilities lease space to individuals, usually storing household goods, or to small businesses,usually storing excess inventory or archived records. The rented spaces, known as "units", are secured by the tenant's own lock and key. Facility operators do not have casual access to the contents of the space unlike a professional warehouseman. A Self Storage operator never takes possession, care, custody or control of the contents of the storage rental space unless a lien is imposed as provided in Self Storage laws for non-payment of rent. Self Storage facility operators usually provide computer-controlled access to rental space areas and many use closed-circuit security cameras.

Each unit is usually accessed by opening a roll-up metal door, which is usually about the same size as a one-car garage door.

A controlled access facility has surveillance cameras, individual unit doors are alarmed and or electronically locked, the access gate is operated by either the use of a keypad or proximity card, similar to a credit card in size.

Customers are generally allowed to store any non-hazardous, non-toxic, non-perishable material in the facility: personal items, furniture, motorcycles, overstocked retail wares etc. Customers are prohibited from sleeping or otherwise living in the room.


Location

The most obvious thing to consider is location. You'll want a storage facility that's close to your home, this will save you money and time if you make frequent visits. Know the hours available for accessing your own storage unit, as not all storage facilities offer 24/7 access.
