Extra Space Storage
I stored my belongings with this facility for less than a year. Within the first few months they raised my monthly rental rate by $10 dollars. I started paying $120 for a 10x10 and then they bumped it up to $130 and then again a few months later added $10 more so by the end of one year with them I was being asked to pay $140 a month for a 10x10. When I inquired about rate raises they said it was stated in the agreement they have the right to raise rates. It seems really unethical to intentionally let someone move all of their belongings into a location then raise the rates; they've literally got your hands tied because IT COST more to rent another moving truck and go to a different storage company so they just keep raising the price on you. When you express your displeasure they like to do the management pointing fingers game where it's "out of their hands" or that's just what the system does, and they can't change it. Also, they only let you pro-rate your rent once, but tell you after you've already done it so you better be sure nothing goes wrong with your move out date prediction. They require you to pay insurance, but they don't advertise their prices with it included. The costumer service at this particular location was always very friendly, but the company itself will just continue to take from you. They have no costumer loyalty; the longer you're there, the more they'll charge you. Seems backwards to me.
Tips & Advices
Many storage unit companies provide moving equipment that you can use to help maneuver your belongings. This equipment might be available for rental, and some storage companies will loan certain items to you at no charge. The range of options can include items such as push carts and dollies.
Storage units allow vehicle storage, and you'll typically need to rent an outdoor unit to facilitate this process. An outdoor storage unit that accommodates vehicles may have its own walls and door, or it may be a covered unit that's partitioned with wire mesh. Another option is to rent covered storage for your vehicle. With covered storage, your vehicle is stored in a space that is shared with other vehicles. These spaces are similar to parking spaces in a secure lot.
There are certain differences that separate indoor and outdoor storage units. Indoor storage units are often housed in secure facilities, and they offer perks such as climate control. These units are the best choice for sensitive and valuable items, since they offer protection from pests, weather, and intruders. Outdoor storage units are usually much larger than indoor units, and they often offer drive-up access to each unit. Outdoor storage units are excellent for storing larger items such as furniture, boats, and cars.
Storage unit rental fees do not include property insurance for stored items. Storage facilities are typically protected by insurance, but this coverage only applies to the building itself, and not the contents of the storage units. Your homeowners insurance might provide coverage for your stored items. Storage insurance is also available, and premiums typically start at roughly $7 per month for $1,000 worth of coverage.
The minimum rental period for most storage units is one month. Some storage facilities offer promotions and discounts that require a longer minimum rental period for discounts to be redeemed. For example, a storage facility might offer the first month of rental free with a two-month minimum.
