7 Crucial Questions to Ask When Finding a Storage Pod Company

by Dusty Rhodes | May 11, 2018

Storage pods are useful for a variety of purposes.  The convenient delivery and hassle free pick-up make them ideal for moving.  They are also great for people who are downsizing and need a little extra storage space.  If you are completing a home renovation, storage pods provide a fantastic storage solution for your belongings.  No matter how you use them, storage pods offer unmatched convenience and storage solutions. However, before renting a storage pod there are some important questions you should ask to ensure the storage company is right for you.

  1. Do You Offer Short and Long-Term Storage Options?

    Short-term storage is great for people who are moving and want an affordable and convenient way to transport their belongings without hiring a professional moving company.  However, certain circumstances require long-term storage needs.  Perhaps you are moving to a home that requires renovations prior to moving in.  You might need your belongings to remain in storage for a few months while the project is completed.  If you are moving into a smaller home or an apartment, you might need a place to permanently store extra belongings or larger items.  College students might need long-term storage during the school year or summer months.  Before choosing a storage pod company, make sure they offer the storage solutions you need.

  2. How Large are the Containers?

    Depending on how many items you are planning to store, you might need a large or a small storage container.  If you are planning to store several items you want to be sure the storage company offers a pod that is large enough to accommodate all of your belongings.  If you only need storage for a few items, you want to ask if there are any smaller pods available.  Why pay for more storage than you need?  Asking these questions can help you save money and ensure you get the right amount of storage for your needs. 

  3. Is the Storage Pod Ground Level Accessible?

    This might not seem that important but when you are loading several heavy items it can be quite a chore if you are forced to walk up a steep ramp.  Ground level accessibility makes packing and storing your belongings much easier and more time efficient. 

  4. Are There Any Hidden Fees?

    This is perhaps one of the most important questions before selecting a storage pod company.  You want to make sure you are aware of all charges and fees prior to renting your unit. 

  5. Is the Storage Facility Monitored for Security?

    If you are storing many of your personal belongings somewhere, you certainly want to ensure they will remain safe and secure while stored.  Ask about security systems on the premises or if the grounds will be patrolled. 

  6. Are the Storage Units Climate-Controlled?

    This is particularly important if you are storing papers, photographs, alcohol, or any other items that could be damaged by extreme temperatures.  Storing certain items for long periods of time in hot or cold temperatures could make them susceptible to sever damage. 

  7. Are There Limits to my Access?

While you certainly want to make sure security is tight, you also want to know that you can access your belongings at any time.  You don’t want to be limited to time constraints when you need to access your belongings.
