Quick tip: Ask these questions before renting self-storage
First, what type of security features are in place to protect the facility? You want 24/7 CCTV surveillance, daily lock checks, gated access, and perimeter security fencing at the very least.
Next, are there moving services available for renters? Many facilities will offer free use of a trailer to new renters.
Finally, ask when you will be able to access your unit. Can you get in 24/7 or only during normal business hours?
