What affects the price of storing furniture in a storage unit?

Location. Obviously, the more densely populated and urbanized the area where the storage facility is placed the higher would be its rental rate. It stems from the significantly higher demand and real property taxes. Thus, the units that are located in the suburbs are rather sought-after and way more affordable.

Time. It is a common practice for storage companies to offer a discount instead of full-price for long-term services. But nowadays, the service vendor quite often may offer the rentals to try 1 month free-of-charge with prolongation the on a month-to-month basis. As for the lone-run exploitation of the self-storage unit, the contract is likely to be signed for a 3-month service with the full-stack of service benefits you are supposed to obtain.

Temporary or long term furniture storage

Capacity and size of the unit. There is not much of a choice you have to conveniently stow the massive amount of furniture than to order a big enough storeroom. And conversely – you might need just a few square feet to place a set of old chairs or baby room furniture. In both, you should use the available funds wisely and revise the things you wish to lock up. Probably some of them wouldn’t be worth keeping, and you may simply discard them.

Level of service and security. In general, you’re put before renting a self-storage premise or full-service one. In the first situation, you’re paying for a simple locked warehouse block within the secured perimeter. In the second one, you can take advantage of loading and delivery services provided by maintenance personnel.

Additional features and insurance. Additional features and insurance. The first ones imply the possibility to purchase packing supplies (cardboard or plastic boxes. wrapping, etc.) and multiple types of labor. The signing of a separate new policy for the period of furniture storage rental mainly remains voluntary, but usually this add-on commitment might be needed if home insurance coverage is insufficient for reimbursement. According to the home insurance analysts, “off-premises home insurance coverage often has a limit of $1,000 or 10% of the policy’s personal property limit, whichever is greater.”
