Money, money…money! It’s all about the dollar sign, right? This is a very true statement when it comes to many important decisions in your life.  You want to make sure you get the most value for your hard-earned money, and the goal is to pay less but receive more.  SMARTBOX is conscious of the financial aspect, and we want to assist our customers in this top-priority issue whenever possible.  Below, you will find cost-effective tips for saving money when renting a storage unit.

Discounts- When you are doing your research and shopping around for possible suiters, see if storage companies offer discounts for their services.  Many companies offer discounts for various groups of people including college students, active military and veterans, law enforcement, and educators.  Never be afraid to ask if a company offers a discount because all they can say is no.

Transportation- A large part of the stress associated with the moving process is safely transporting your items from one location to another.  Not only can this be physically taxing, but the costs can quickly add up when you factor in renting a truck or hiring movers.  Many relocations plans now include the transportation aspect as part of their services.  When you hire a trained, experienced company to transport your items, you can alleviate a portion of your stress by knowing this aspect is taken care of.

Split the Cost- When you are choosing a storage company, consider finding several people to share the space with so you can split the storage cost together.  Not only will this be cost-effective, it is the ideal choice if you will not being using the entire storage space.  During the summer, several college students could share the same storage unit to save money.

The Bigger, the Better- The more space you have, the better off you are going to be.  Our SMARTBOX storage units are 8 x 7 x 5 with the capability of holding up to 3,000 pounds.  We feel this gives our customers a great amount of versatility, while allowing them to receive the best value for their money.  Our units’ interiors are very spacious and allow for items to be stored in their own section of the unit itself.  Also, our interior is made of wood, which protects against harmful substances and keeps all of your belongings in good condition.

Do Not Overstore- Never overstore when it comes to using a storage unit because if you try to store too many items in your unit, it could end up damaging products.  For items taking up an extreme amount of space, you might consider other storage options.  Call close family and friends to see if they can lend a helping hand.  This will help save money and space when it comes to storage units, all while keeping stress to a minimum.

SMARTBOX is well aware that many consumers are very interested in saving money.  We are here to help you do just that, while running an effective, people-driven, and profitable business.  If you have any further questions about the services we offer, contact us today at 1-877-627-8269.
