Before you place your items into mini storage, it is imperative that you inspect the facilities. Your mini storage unit should provide sufficient space for all of your items. Create an inventory of all of the items that you wish to place into storage, so that if you don’t know which size unit to select, you’ll have something to show to a facility worker.

The mini self storage units should also be clean, and above all, secure. Self storage facilities offer many types of security features, ranging from alarms, motion detectors, video surveillance, nightly inspections, and guards on duty. You will have to provide your own lock and key, so that only you and your authorised personnel will have access to the unit []
