With more and more Pewaukee residents using self-storage every year, it’s important to understand your storage needs before signing an indoor storage contract. If you’re considering renting a self-storage unit:
What are you planning on storing?
This is important because it will help you determine both the amount of storage space that you will need and whether or not you will need it to be climate controlled. If, for example, you’re an artist who is planning on storing art supplies, you may not need a large unit, but do need climate control to protect your paints. If however, you’re a car enthusiast who just needs an extra garage to store one of your rides over the winter a large space will suffice.
How much can you afford?
Self storage prices vary widely based on location, capacity and climate control availability, so you’ll need to know what you can afford for the entire length of your “stay.”
How often will you visit?
If you’re planning on storing things that you need frequent access to, you may want to factor in extra space. That way you will have enough room in your unit to maneuver around your belongings and keep them organized.
Does your insurance cover your indoor storage unit?
It’s not safe to assume that your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance policy will cover rented self-storage space. Check your insurance policy or with your agent. If it is not included, ask your storage facility if they offer tenant insurance for an additional fee.
