If you have concerns about renting a storage unit, we want to help you get all the information you need to make a smart choice. In today’s blog, Marina View Storage takes the time to answer five of the most frequently asked questions about storage units.

How Secure Is a Storage Unit?

Most storage facilities are secure, however, some are more secure than others. If it is an advanced facility, they will have 24-hour cameras, secure gates and fencing, security staff, and more. If you want a top of the line storage unit that is secure, look no further. Marina View Storage has high-quality storage locks, fenced and gated property, 24/7 video surveillance, and staff to keep your storage safe!

What Size Storage Unit Should I Rent?

Knowing what size self-storage unit to rent can be difficult, especially if you have never rented a storage unit before. Storage units can range from 5x5 to 15x50 at Marina View Storage, so we always have the perfect unit for anything you might need to store. For an average one bedroom apartment, our 10x15 size is a perfect choice. If you are unsure what size would be best, our friendly customer service team is happy to help!

What’s the Best Way to Protect Belongings in a Storage Unit?

The best way to keep your belongings safe and secure for the long run is to rent a climate controlled storage unit. Our advanced climate controlled storage units maintain balanced temperature and humidity levels while filtering the air and reducing dust. If you are planning to store your belongings for an extended period of time, we recommend a climate controlled storage unit.

How Long Will My Lease Be?

Storage facilities often offer month-to-month leases, so customers never have to be locked into a contract. Before signing your lease, always read through the contact to ensure you understand what you are signing. Storage facilities also offer three-month plans, six-month plans, or year-long plans, so be sure to choose a lease that fits your needs.
