Storage Facilities: Leasing One may just be more Beneficial

Self-storage is one industry in the U.S. that has grown continuously since it began in the 1960s. Self-storage, also known as mini-storage, is a form of business which offers individuals, families of offices an extra space where they can store anything safely. Self-storage facilities in the U.S., number to more than 50,000; most of these are located in Sun Belt states, which include, Florida, California and Texas – states where houses, especially the newly-built ones, are designed without either an attic or a basement, the usual spaces where people keep old things that they still hold valuable and cannot throw away.

According to the National Association of Homebuilders, the average size of houses in America has become bigger starting in 2004. From 1,660 square feet, houses have grown to 2,400 square feet; despite this, there is still not enough room to house everything that people buy.

The lack of enough space for everything a household may own is due to American consumerism, which has been on an upsurge. Its result is one in every ten families having the need to rent extra space, a self-storage that is, where old things, furniture and appliances are stored to give room for newly bought ones.

While renting a self-storage may be a very remote idea to others, those who are lease at least one know that having an extra space can really be beneficial, especially if you:

  • Want to enjoy the freedom of being able to rotate your furnishings;
  • Intend to move to a new residence;
  • Want or need to reduce some of your furnishings for more excellent showing; and,
  • Lack space for old things, like old toys or mom’s and pop’s favorites.

Rather than worry, self-storage facilities give assurance that your belongings are safe and accessible to you 24/7. Some self-storage facilities, for instance, guarantee drive up access, personal access codes, security cameras, a fully-fenced property, climate controlled and drive-up units. There is also a resident manager, who is always ready to answer questions and provide assistance. Moreover, there are small units for those intending to store only boxed and other “not-so-big” items, as well as big units where one can keep furnishings from an entire home.

Most self-storage facilities lease spaces on a month-to-month basis which, of course, is renewable. Besides being affordable, payment can also be cash, with a personal check or through a credit card.
