Public Storage
We rented a storage space at the Stor-All Storage Facility in Davie. I had the pleasure of meeting Team Leader Mauricio Hernandez. Mr. Hernandez could not have been more professional, helpful and kind. He gave my wife and I a complete tour of the facility along with indicating the many amenities and security features. He took us to inspect the unit and provided exact instructions regarding the easiest and quickest way for us to access the unit during the move. He was very pleasant to deal with and was very diligent at servicing our needs to our fullest extent. We were also in need of a truck and on short notice, Mr. Hernandez was able to locate a truck for us and secured it by contacting the Team Leader of the other facility for our move the next morning. Mr. Hernandez is a credit to Stor-All Corp. and we’re extremely happy with his service and how simple it was for us to move in.George S
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.
