When you put your possessions in a storage unit, you naturally expect to retrieve them in the same condition as when packed away, but what’s even easier is making sure of that when the storage solutions are delivered to your door (or driveway) for as long (or as little) as you’d like.
Choosing the right portable storage company means choosing a company that has well established customer service protocols and an industry-leading reputation. Lucky for you, UNITS has both and more – a steadfast reputation for good old fashioned customer service and clients to back that up for us.
But even with the convenience of having that additional storage brought to you, there are a few ways you can help ensure that your belongings do not fall victim to a number of potential problems.
- Lock your portable storage container. It might sound like something you’d over look, especially in a more rural area, but portable storage containers aren’t exactly easy to miss and can be potential targets for crime. Thankfully our portable storage units are weatherproof and with a little extra security by way of a padlock, you can be sure that your belongings will be kept inside safe and dry. The safety of your possessions is important – certainly to you – and you should feel secure when you come to the unit. Water, moisture and dirt are the enemies of your packed boxes and good storage companies maintain a tight ship. Choose wisely.
- Know how much space you’ll need or want and pick your portable storage container accordingly. Marriage, divorce and retirement are the three top reasons people rent storage units and those are emotional times where decisions might be made without enough consideration. You want the right amount of space – not too much, and not too little. Too much space simply wastes your money. Too little means boxes and bags piled atop each other, resulting in clutter and sometimes an inability to find the items you need. The right amount of space should fit your budget and the possessions you place in your storage unit.
- Investigate the company you’re renting a container from. After all is said and done, it’s up to you to do a little due diligence on the company you’re renting a portable storage container from. Make sure the company has good reviews and is kind and courteous in their dealings, otherwise it might be a precursor for an unpleasant experience. our items are going in one of the units and you want assurances that the place is well-kept.
