Tips for Renting a Storage Unit Online

June 15,2023

Take a moment do a bit of research of storage facilities near you

It is always a good idea to take the time to research and compare different self storage facilities in your area. Consider factors such as location, unit sizes, security features, pricing, and customer reviews. This will help you find the best storage facility that meets your specific needs.

 Check for availability

Ensure that the storage facility you choose has availability for the unit size you require. Many storage facilities have online tools or reservation systems that allow you to check availability in real-time. This will help you avoid wasting time on facilities that don't have the space you need.  At Bow City Storage – if you can rent the unit online, it means it is available!

Understand the terms and conditions

You can learn a lot about the facility and its policies by checking out the frequently asked questions section on the website.  Of course – the User Agreement you sign will have a lot of information as well – so make sure to read it and ask any questions.  A good storage facility will be able to walk you through the terms and conditions and what to expect very effectively..

 Take virtual tours

Many storage facilities offer virtual tours or provide detailed photos of their storage facility. Take advantage of these features to get a sense of the storage facility’s access, condition, size, and layout. This will help alleviate many of the unknowns.

 Contact the self storage facility directly

If you have any questions or need further clarification, don't hesitate to contact the storage facility directly by calling or emailing them. Most storage facilities have contact information available on their website. Speaking with a team member can provide you with additional information and peace of mind before finalizing the booking online.

 Insuring your items in self storage

Most storage facilities require the items in storage to have insurance coverage. Some storage facilities may offer insurance options, or you can explore  your own third-party insurance providers.   

By following these tips, you can navigate the process of renting a storage unit online more efficiently and ensure that you make an informed decision that meets your storage needs.
