There are a ton of reasons why San Diego movers rent self storage units. For instance, you might be moving into a new home, but your current lease is up prior to your move in date. Or you might be moving into a smaller home after the kids move out, and need to find a place to store some of the clutter. In any case, self-storage is an ideal option for people moving to San Diego. Here are some tips and suggestions on how to safely and efficiently store your valuables:
- Know what can and cannot be stored safely. Perishable or hazardous items, such as food, plants, or gasoline, cannot be stored safely, so look for another option when storing these items before your relocation in San Diego.
- Avoid storage facilities that list a ton of fees in the fine print, or charge expensive start-up fees. If they charge more than $30 for a start-up fee, then keep looking.
- Know how many items you will need to store. This will help you and the storage company choose an appropriately sized unit.
- Make sure that the storage unit has adequate security features. Video surveillance, high fences, and locking gate doors are standard and should be expected.
- Check the storage unit for signs of damage before moving in.
- Look into having a moving company store your items. Depending on how many items you have to store and the time frame until you move them again, it may be more cost effective to have a moving company store you possessions for you. This way they can transport them easily once you are ready to move into a new home.
