Self-Storage vs. Full-Service Storage Company
When you need to store away valuables, there are two choices: using a self-storage company or using a full-service storage company. Most people know that vaulted storage means greater security for their beloved belongings, but what they don’t know is that it can also mean less work and great value. In this article, we will explain exactly how self-storage compares to using a storage company, so you can decide which option is really best for you.
When it comes to security, using a storage company is a no-brainer. Vaulted storage means that not only are your valuables locked inside your personal storage containers, but they are also locked inside a manned, fully alarm-protected warehouse. With self-storage, you might manage to get an indoor, locked storage unit, but almost all of these storage units are easily accessible to the public both day and night.
With a self-storage unit, you usually do all of the work—the moving, loading, unloading, and stacking of your property—and you are expected to provide your own boxes and blankets to protect your items while they are being stored.
With a moving and storage company, you can have your items packed, loaded, moved, and stored without ever lifting a finger. You also get access to packing supplies and even clean moving pads that can be used to protect furniture and appliances while they are being stored. Then, when you are ready, your items can be delivered right to your door.
On average, our storage company’s vaulted storage in our clean, dry, secure warehouse can save you approximately 20–40 percent on your monthly storage bill over the cost of a self-storage unit, at just $75 per month for a 245 square foot vault.
