Need To Store Some Valuable Items In Private? Get A Storage Unit and Insurance Today

Jenny Shaw

If you have made some large purchases of items that you don't want people you live with to see, you want to get a storage unit. The storage unit is a great way to keep everything safe and discrete, and you won't have to worry about theft or weathering problems if they are large items. Here are the steps to take.

Rent a Storage Unit  

A storage unit may be the best place to store items that you don't want everyone to know you have. There are no windows for anyone to see into the unit, and you are able to lock it easily.

Here are things to ask when you look for a facility that can fulfill your storage needs:

  • Length of lease options
  • Cost per month for a year paid in advance
  • Types of locks on the doors
  • Temperature controlled options
  • Applicant screening process
  • Video surveillance on the property

With all of the details and costs taken into consideration, you can then find the right storage facility for your items. This is the first step.

Decide How to Store the Items

You want to store the items in the unit, but also make sure that they are protected. Consider putting the items on pallets or getting them in the air if you worry about the items getting wet in a flood or heavy rains. You also want to consider keeping the items in airtight containers to prevent moisture or dust issues.

Get the Items Insured

Get all the items in your storage unit insured. If there is a fire on the property or other problems and complications, you want to be sure that your items can be replaced or that you will at least receive an insurance check for the value of the items. The facility may have an option for this with the lease cost, but if you don't want the facility to know what is in the unit, get your own insurance.

When you need privacy, and you have to store things at the same time, the best option can be to get a storage unit at a local self-storage facility. This allows you the privacy that you want and need, and you still can access the items in the unit whenever you need to. Set a budget and find out how much you want to spend on the initial investment of the unit and for the lease.
