When you are making your considerations for self-storage, you must first ask yourself what self-storage is. Self-storage is when you are purchasing the rights to a private space, either billed on a weekly, monthly or yearly basis and being provided access to your belongings whenever you want to access them. There are different options available when you are determining what your needs will be, and each one has something special and unique to offer.
Mobile self-storage is when a container is delivered to your house at your convenience, and you can load it up. These containers are usually 8 foot tall and can range anywhere from 7 to 20 feet long, sometimes even longer. The benefit of this method of self-storage is that you can load the unit at your speed, without having to make many trips with your valuable and sentimental items, and it can safely store your items. Depending on the type of unit that you use, it would either need to be stored at your home because these types cannot be moved while they are full or, it could be transported to another location and stored there.
There is also the option of choosing traditional storage units. These units are stationary and are not moveable, but they can offer options that the mobile units could not. With a traditional unit, you would be able to select a location, like one in Perth, that may offer security cameras, keypad entry, climate control and 24-hour access. As always, new and exciting ways of doing things are always helpful, but sometimes keeping things traditional has its upside.
If you are going to obtain a Perth Metro Storage Perth unit for the use of your personal, or even business items, you should look into getting storage insurance. Storage insurance is special insurance that covers items that you have placed into your storage unit. This may seem like overkill to some, because if you have homeowners insurance, or sometimes even renters insurance, then your items would be covered. Right? Well, the short answer is yes, your items are covered, but because they are not in your home anymore, they are not included at the full value.
For example, if you have $100,000 policy most insurance would only cover your storage unit for up to $50,000. But some plans take it even further than that, and only offer 10% of your policy, meaning that you would only be covered for $10,000. It is up to you to determine what the best bet is for your property but selecting insurance, even though you know that the storage facility manager is making more money off the sale.
Depending on the facility, or pod, that you choose, make sure that you look into all your options. Facilities in Perth offer the highest standards available to their clients and want nothing more than to keep their belongings safe and sound. Being prepared with a list of questions is more than likely going to help you in more ways than one when you are narrowing down your decision.
