How to Choose Public Storage in Las Vegas

February 22, 2017

Are you ready to get rid of some of the clutter around your house? If you’re not ready to say goodbye to your belongings, you should consider putting some items in public storage in Las Vegas. But, a quick Google search will tell you there are dozens of storage companies in the city, so how do you know who you can trust with your prized possessions? Follow these tips:

Determine the type of unit.

First, you will need to figure out what type of unit you need so you can search for a facility that meets your needs. Figure out what items you want to store, and then measure how much space you will need to hold them. If you rent a unit that is bigger than necessary, you’ll end up paying more than you need to, so it’s important to plan this out carefully prior to signing a contract with a facility.

Next, you will need to decide if you need an air cooled unit. Do any of your items need to be kept at a specific temperature? For example, fur coats that are put in storage have to be kept at a certain temperature otherwise the extreme hot or cold could damage the fur. If you have items like this, it’s important to find a facility that offers air cooled units.

Find a secure location.

The facility you choose must have security features. Research different facilities in your area to see what kind of security features they have. For example, some facilities will have surveillance cameras, while others will have a keypad-equipped gate so no one can access the area without the appropriate code. Decide what level of security you feel comfortable with so you can narrow down your options even further.

Ask about accessibility.

How often will you need to access your items once they’re in storage? Some facilities will allow customers to access their units 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, other facilities only let customers into their units during normal business hours. If you will need late night or weekend access to your unit, make sure you find a facility that provides this.

See it in person.

There’s only so much you can see online, so it’s best to visit each storage unit in person once you’ve narrowed down your list. Visiting the facility in person will help you ensure the units are as nice as they appear online so you feel more comfortable leaving your belongings there. You should also check the storage units to see if there is any structural damage. If there are signs of leaks or cracks, you should definitely cross the facility off of your list.
