We’re always here to help however we can, and when you have questions, we’ll have the answers. In this blog, we’ll look at some of the most commonly asked questions when it comes to storage.

1. What Size of Units Do You Have?

dreamstime_xxl_44980632This is perhaps the most common question, and it’s obviously a good one to ask. People who need storage want to know what unit sizes are available, and we can help you decide which size is best for your belongings. If you have just a few boxes, a 5’x5’ unit should suffice, and if you have lots of things to store, we can show you our larger storage spaces. Above all, we want you to be paired with the ideal unit that meets your needs and fits your budget.

2. What is Climate-Controlled Storage?

Climate-controlled storage is designed to protect those fragile, valuable, and antique items from damage caused by heat or cold. Extreme temperature fluctuations can occur in standard storage units, so if you have belongings that need to be protected, we recommend renting a climate-controlled space. These units are kept between 65 and 75 degrees all year round, so you’ll know that your possessions are safe from heat, cold, humidity, and other factors.

3. Do I Need a Reservation?

We recommend making a reservation, especially if you want a certain size of storage unit. A reservation will hold the unit for you until you can move your belongings in, but if you need to cancel, the facility manager will be able to help. Walk-ins are welcome, but it’s important to keep in mind that the unit you want may not be available at that exact moment.

4. Can I Move My Things from One Unit to Another?

If you need a larger storage space, or you move some things out and want to move to a smaller unit, our staff will gladly help you transition. As long as the size you want is available, you can transfer anytime. The facility manager will discuss the pricing difference with you before you move your belongings.

5. Can I Pay My Bill Online?
