Because of this reality, many would ask, "How am I going to cut the costs of my subscriptions?"
If you are a self storage customer, you're lucky! Here, we have prepared a guide that you can follow to cut your storage costs.
By doing so, you can find the cheapest storage price before agreeing and signing a contract. Don't settle on the first storage company that comes in your mind when you can find a cost-effective option out there. It's just a click away.
Use a self storage comparison site to find the cheapest option. Do your homework. Start researching. Comparing prices offered by various storage companies won't cost you a fortune. As I said, it's just a click away.
Sort your things. Dig through them. Determine which ones are important and can be used in the future and which ones are to get rid of. You can either sell or donate. If you find clutters that are just "clutter," throw them away. You'll get amazed by how much space you'll save if you follow this step.
By effectively I mean, you should use boxes or pods in packing your stuff. It is easier to pile boxes than just throw everything in the storage unit.
If possible, choose a storage company near your home and workplace. This way, you can save petrol from going back and forth to your storage unit --- especially if you are someone who visits your belongings frequently.
Usually, storage companies offer exclusive promos and discounts for first-time customers, loyal customers, and long-term storage customers. Some packages include pick up and delivery. Don't miss the chance of saving your hard-earned money by utilizing these exclusive promos.
If you plan to rent a storage unit longer than a few months, look for companies that offer discounts on long-term storage contracts.
Estimate how much space you need to store your items. Don't pay for space you won't be using. On the other hand, don't force everything in a storage unit if it doesn't fit in --- you might end up damaging your things or renting two storage units. Either way, it's an additional cost on your side.
If you're storing just a few items, try asking some family members or friends to store with you. Share the space, share the price. What a convenient way to cut your storage cost!
Don't spend on special features you don't need. If your items don't need to be stored in a climate-controlled unit, then look for a facility without this feature. It is usually cheaper.
Look for storage companies with insurance options. Some companies are requiring their customers to avail of an insurance package before signing a contract. Others, however, make it up to their customers. It depends on the customer if he wants his things to be insured. It is not practical to insure your unit if you're just storing the clutter you remove from your apartment to give room for more important items. In short, choose a storage company with insurance options --- one that will not force you to avail of something you don't need.
