Many people use the Internet to find the correct self storage unit for their needs. Whether the
researcher intends to locate general information about a self storage company, a facility in particular,
information about climate-controlled units in a particular or general area, self storages that allow a
business to be run from a unit,
facilities that offer multiple sizes of units, or those that have particular desired amenities, the Internet
has many pages of information available. Sometimes it can be difficult to narrow down a search, so researchers
should try to have as much detailed information as is feasible before beginning the search.
Locating Information About A Specific Self Storage Facility
Locating general information about a particular mini storage facility is perhaps the easiest and fastest
step to accomplish. You can usually type in a URL that includes a particular self storage's name to find
information about that company, or you can enter the name of the company in any search engine such as
Google, Yahoo, Bing, or other search engine. To compare companies, check the yellow pages (the online
version or the standard phone book version) for local companies and look at multiple websites. This
option makes it easy to compare pricing, security, location, and other important amenities. The consumer
can then call ahead for information not listed on the website or to tour the self storage facility.
Researching Climate Controlled Mini Storage Facilities In Your Area
Finding information about self storages that offer climate controlled units in your area or in general
can be a bit more tricky, but often boils down to simply entering the correct information into the
search engine. However, some mini storages offer climate-controlled units in large areas but not in
small areas, and one facility may have amenities that another facility in the same city does not have.
Always compare the actual facility to what you are looking for before you assume that because one has
what you are looking for, another self storage will have the same extras. Usually the self storage
website will have this information about the particular city and state the consumer is inquiring about.
Researching Storage Facilities That Allow You To Run A Business From Your Unit
Some self storages allow a business to be run directly from a unit. This saves money for those storing
their valuables in their garage and looks more professional in the end. This option can be difficult to
find self storages to accommodate. Many mini storage websites will indicate whether this is allowed,
and will offer additional assistance if it is allowed. Additional assistance can include options such
as parking for the customers of the small business, extra security for the unit, additional
storage space, and any extra fees associated with this service.
Use Internet Research To Help You Find The Right Size Unit
Customers request different sizes of self storage units
depending upon their particular storage needs. Self storages normally offer a multitude of sizes accordingly,
from closet-sized units to
self storages large enough to hold vehicles or boats.
The Internet can be used to find locations that offer a desired size of mini storage unit or facility.
The consumer can then phone or click (in some cases) to check availability of the mini storage size.
Researching Security and Other Mini Storage Amenities
Other customers require additional amenities in a self storage. Certain
self storage security options,
such as cameras, motion detectors, gated entrances, alarms, or motion-sensitive lighting, are desired
in a mini storage facility. These options can be found on the company's website usually. Other optional
amenities include parking availability, on-site manager or other contact person, availability of assistance
for carrying large, heavy, or bulky items, and more. Once again, a mini storage facility's website will
usually have this information. If not, there is usually a way to contact someone that represents the facility
for more information (normally either an email address or phone number).
The Internet is a valuable tool for finding self storage information. Whether a customer is seeking
information about any service, extra, or fee, the question can usually be answered via a company's
website or another type of online representative. Search engines are a popular method of locating this
information, and this saves time and money for those seeking to store valuables quickly and efficiently.
