3 Easy Steps to Rent Storage
Deciding to rent self storage can be a stress-relieving decision. Knowing that you'll be able to store your extra things in an offsite location with easy access while gaining space at home is a great feeling. Now that you're ready to rent, what's next? We'll lay out the three easy steps to rent a self storage unit from StorageMart.
Step 1: Find a Suitable Location
The first step to renting storage is to find a location. You'll want to find a location that is convenient and easy to access. You can search for "storage near me," but the best locations will be near your home or work place, since these are the areas you will frequent the most. Having your storage unit near your home makes it easier to access on nights and weekends, while having it near your workplace makes it easy to swing by on the way to work or on the way home. The easiest way to find a StorageMart location near you is to search online with your zip code.
Step 2: Pick a Perfectly Sized Unit
After you've decided on a location, it's time to pick a unit size. This handy sizing guide can help you figure out what size unit you need. You can also call our storage experts or stop by the location you've chosen. The store managers are trained to help you find a space that isn't too big or two small by asking you a few questions about what you're storing. After you've decided on a unit, all you have to do is set up payment arrangements with the StorageMart store you are renting from. On to Check-In!
Step 3: Move In to Your Storage Unit
Last but not least is Check In Day! It's time to enjoy the extra space you'll have after moving some of your things to storage. Your StorageMart store has packing supplies, boxes, and disc locks all available for purchase to make moving in a breeze. If you have any final paperwork, you'll complete this at the store when you arrive. When you're packing your unit, try to utilize the vertical space to save room, and put your commonly used items in the front to make accessing them an easier process. Also, try to line the walls and create aisles so that you can get to the boxes and items in the back with ease.
