Making Moving An Adventure

I have always absolutely loved seeing new places and doing new things, which is probably why moving has never been difficult for me. I like new challenges, which is why I volunteered at my job to work at field offices across the globe. Although the moving process was a little bit overwhelming at first, emotionally it was an adventure, so I worked hard to make the entire process into a great experience. Within a few months, things had really become a lot better, and we were enjoying an excellent new town every few years. Read this website to find out how to make moving a little more fun.


What You Need To Know About Storage Rentals

At some point in your life you may find that you have a few items that you just don't have room for anymore. Whether you are moving, downsizing, or you've ended up with these items through other means, figuring out a solution can be a hassle. If you need to store your items, either temporarily or long term, a storage rental is a great option. Here are a few things that you should know about when it comes to storage:

Your Options

The good news is that storage rentals are not one size fits all; when it comes to self storage, units run the gamut from small to large. You can put nearly anything in storage: clothing and personal items, and even boats or other vehicles. There are plenty of self-storage facilities to choose from across the US. Portable on-demand storage is also an option and is a great choice if you are in the process of moving. Storage rentals are also available with and without climate control. In some cases, climate control is necessary in order to keep your belongings safe, and is often needed in areas with a lot of humidity and temperature fluctuations.

The Cost

Cost is, of course, something you should keep in mind when it comes to self-storage units. In general, the larger the storage unit, the more you will pay. Climate control can also add to your total cost. On average, climate-controlled units are about 15 percent more expensive than non climate-controlled units. A 5-by-5 foot storage unit ranges in price from $40 to $50 per month, and a 10-by-15 foot unit costs between $75 and $140 per month, while 10-by-20 unit will cost between $95 and $155. Even larger units can cost upwards of $225 per month. 

Portable Storage Versus a Storage Facility

Another thing to consider when it comes to storage rentals is whether or not you need portable storage, or if a storage facility will meet your needs. If you are moving or plan on relocating your items in the future, portable storage may be the best option. You can even store a portable storage container on your property if needed. Costs can vary, however: portable on-demand storage typically ranges from $500 to $5,000. The further you need to move your belongings, the more expensive it will be. 

When it comes to storage rentals, there are a lot of things to consider. You have a variety of options to choose from, ranging from traditional storage units to portable on-demand storage. Portable storage is a great option if you are moving or if you want a form of storage on your property. Costs vary depending on the size of the unit.
