Top tips for purchasing storage units in Exeter


How secure do you want your belongings to be?

Obviously, you wouldn’t put your belongings into storage if you didn’t want them to be secure, but how secure you need them to be will affect where you decide to keep them. Try choosing a storage centre which has on-site security around the clock, so that you can be sure that only you are able to access your belongings.

You should be able to get to your own storage unit using a personal key fob or code, whilst access to the building is protected by security as well. You shouldn’t really choose a storage centre with any lower security than this, or you do risk having to be concerned about how safe your possessions are.

Where do you want to store your belongings?

How often you want to get to your belongings also has bearing on where you store them. If you need to get to your stuff often, you should choose a storage facility that is close to where your main residence is, whereas if you don’t need to visit often you can choose your storage facility based on price or other factors.

How much storage do you need?

Some self-storage facilities will have more space than others, so it is worth getting all of your stuff together and measuring roughly how much space it takes up, and then comparing this with the units that are available at the various sites you are considering.

What have other people’s experiences been?

One of the easiest ways to choose the right storage unit for you is to look online and compare customer reviews of these storage facilities. Comparison sites will also allow you to compare prices, giving you a much better idea of which facility is going to take the best care of you and your possessions, and ensure that you feel comfortable leaving your valued possessions there.

You obviously have to choose within your price range, but other than that you should use all of these questions to help you to choose the right storage units in Exeter for you. Contact us today to discuss your storage needs.
