Storage Rental Space: Things to Think About

Exodus Moving and Storage is more than just a Denver moving company. We also have large storage facilities in both Denver and Fort Collins, in case you need to store some of your items. We know that figuring out what kind of a storage space to rent, or how to rent one, can be a challenge, so we’ve come up with a list of things to consider when it comes to renting any storage space – let us know if you have any questions by leaving a comment on this blog or on our Facebook page.

Figure Out What You Need to Keep

The most important thing to consider when it comes to storage space is whether or not you actually need to store some of your stuff. Take a look at the things you are considering storing, and ask yourself if you need to keep the items at all. If you haven’t used something in the past two years, you may not need to keep it. On the flip side, items like furniture that you will want down the road can be easily stored in a safe and secure location.

Determine the Size of the Storage Space

It can be tempting to pick the largest space just in case you have more things to store, but you’ll want to make sure that you use all of the space you’re paying for. As a general rule of thumb, here’s some help deciding on the right sized space:

  • 5x5x10: small boxes of items like dishes
  • 5x10x10: this space should be big enough to store items from a one-bedroom place
  • 10x15x10: this space is large enough for a three-bedroom home
  • 10x30x10: this is the large space that you’ll want to rent if you are storing items from a seven-bedroom place.

These are just general guidelines, and the most accurate way to rent a space is to call Exodus Moving and Storage, so that we can give you a better estimate of the space that you will need.

How to Choose a Company

If you live in Fort Collins, we can guarantee that we offer the best value for your dollar when it comes to storage spaces. As a Denver moving company, we have been helping people store all kinds of items (large and small) for many years now, and we can estimate the size of the space that you will need. If you do not live in Colorado, make sure to do your homework. Not all storage companies are the same, and some offer better options than others. It’s also important that the property is guarded on a regular basis, and that there is some insurance in case something does happen to the property.

It’s hard to pick a storage space if you don’t currently live in the area where your items will be stored, so take a close look at the reviews that you can find online, and ask your friends and family members for recommendations. You can also call any storage company to ask about details, what’s included in the rental price, and learn more about the contract that you will have to sign. Calling a company is an excellent way to learn what the people working at a company are like too.
