What could I use an Albuquerque storage unit for?
Self-storage can help you clear out any much-needed space. If you’re moving to a new home and need a place to keep your belongings while between houses, a storage unit provides a great solution. Or perhaps your business needs space to store extra inventory or supplies. In that case, mini storage is a relatively inexpensive alternative to expanding or relocating your offices.
Storage units also provide space for storing seasonal items,recreational gear, and more, allowing you to free up closet space in your home or clear out the garage. And for the out-of-town college student, storing the contents of a dorm room in Albuquerque is much easier than packing it all up and lugging it home over breaks. For in-town students attending the University of New Mexico or another Albuquerque school, renting a storage unit helps eliminate clutter when at home over a long break.
What special features might I need in an Albuquerque storage facility?
Look to the items you are storing to figure out if you’ll need any extra unit features. For example, if you’re storing in between homes during a move or have large, heavy items to store, a drive-up unit will make unloading and loading much easier. If you’ll need to access your stored items often, finding a unit on a ground level will make for an easier, faster trip for you. Some storage facilities even offer 24-hour access.
If you’re storing any valuables, you may want to consider facilities that have additional security options. Video surveillance, gated access, on-site management, and even individually-alarmed unit are among the features some facilities have available.
When storing antiques, old furniture, documents or photographs, climate-controlled units are a must—especially in Albuquerque. The extreme heat and low humidity levels common throughout New Mexico can cause permanent damage to antique items. The wood and veneers of old furniture will dry out and crack, and important documents and photos will fade if not properly protected in a climate-controlled unit.
If you’re unsure of which special features you may need in your storage unit, give the facility a call and talk to the manager or operator. Most will be able to further answer your questions and give professional recommendations to best suit your needs.
What is mobile storage? What are the benefits?
The idea with mobile or portable storage is that the storage unit will be delivered to your home or office and dropped off. You can take as much time as you need filling the unit. Once the unit is full, you can store it at your home or office, or call for it to be picked up and stored at the facility or moved to another location.
Mobile storage is incredibly convenient. Instead of having to load up a truck, drive to the storage facility, and then unload everything again, you’ll save time with the one-step storage that goes straight to the unit.
Not every storage facility offers mobile storage options. Be sure to check USstoragesearch.com/mobile-storage to find a mobile storage facility near you.
What size storage unit will I need?
To figure out which size unit will best fit your needs, take a quick inventory of the items you’re looking to store. Larger items like mattresses or appliances will naturally require more space, but if you’re just cleaning out a closet or two, then a smaller unit is all you may need.USstoragesearch.com has a helpful size estimator tool to help you figure out what will work best for you. If you’re still unsure, call the facility you’ve found and speak with the storage manager or operator. Most have a good idea of what can fit in the units in their facility and what cannot.
