There are times in our lives that we need to have somewhere else to keep a few of our belongings. It may be because of moving from a larger home to a smaller one, for example. Another situation is when combining two households such as when one gets married or becomes a caregiver to an senior relative. It may simply be a case of too much hoarding over the years and wanting to get back to an uncluttered home. Whatever the reason, looking for self storage companies can be the perfect solution.
Finding Self Storage Lubbock TX facilities is not difficult, but you have to consider what you are wanting to accomplish when choosing the one right for you. First of all, determine how often and at what times will you need to access your belongings. If all you plan to do is tuck them away and forget about them, then it won’t matter what hours the facility is open. On the other hand, if you plan to advertise some of the items for sale and need to get back in to show the items to potential buyers, the more flexible the hours the better.
Another consideration is the security present at the facility. If you are placing items of value in the unit, then you will want a facility that has security cameras, secure fencing, and even on-site management. Most home insurance policies will cover your loss if something happens, but some things may just be too valuable sentimentally to take a chance. While on this point, you will want to make sure you are covered by your homeowners policy, and if not you can usually purchase coverage through the facility.
Some facilities will have specific locks for you to use and others will have you provide your own. It is essential that you choose a lock that is difficult to break into. While nothing is foolproof, the old adage that a lock will keep honest people honest couldn’t be more true.
Stopping by to visit self storage companies will get your questions answered, as they will be able to help you decide what size and type unit you need. They come in various sizes and some are climate-controlled. Getting the right one the first time will keep you from having to move everything a second time.
