Storage facilities can vary a great deal when it comes to the kind of environment they have to offer and also the general layout. The great majority will offer a wide array of storage facility sizes from those that are box-sized for those whose storage needs are minimal to those large enough to be able to store big vehicles such as boats, motor homes and RVs to warehouse-type space for use by businesses. All options might be offered by some storage facilities, while others will specialize in only one or two of these options.
The actual storage facilities on offer can also be very different. Some might be purpose-built buildings such as garages, steel units or walk-in partitioned rooms inside a purpose-built facility. All units might be kept at ground level by some facilities, while others will make use of buildings that have more than one level, particularly for smaller units.
Whatever the style, storage firms should be completely committed to making sure that their facilities are kept clean, dry, safe, and free from vermin. The world’s best security measures will be useless if rats eat your clothes or the roof of your facility leaks.
The great majority of storage companies will be happy to commit to particular environmental standards and make sure that every unit has been cleaned before any new owner moves in. If you are uncertain about the environment of a facility, ask to see an empty unit and it will be obvious if there are any serious problems.
