Putting your stuff into storage might feel a little daunting.

Losing immediate access to your belongings could even seem like the worst-case scenario – but sometimes it’s the best option.

The good news? Deciding which facility is suitable for your needs shouldn’t be a hassle.

Fortunately, there are lots of options out there – whatever your needs may be. Whether you have just a few small items or enough stuff to fill several thousand square feet, there’s something for you.


So, what are my storage options?

Your storage options are directly related to your situation.

Ask yourself some questions:

  • Will you need regular access to your belongings, or will you need them to sit for a while?
  • Do you need to store enough to fill a small room, or are you storing inventory for your business?

Let’s look at the options.


Crate storage:

Generally speaking, if you need low-level access to your belongings and don’t have an abundance of stuff to store, crate storage is the way to go.

These wooden crates can store your belongings short or long-term in a climate-controlled environment that you can rely on.

Crate storage is good for moving abroad and for when you don’t need immediate access to your property.

The unique, stackable feature of crate storage is what keeps the prices down. Since stowed crates take up less space and won’t need to be accessed as often, you can save money and have peace of mind that your belongings are stored safely.


Indoor self-storage solutions:

This option is best for short or long-term storage that you can access any time you wish.

This is often used when you need to store items from a room or your entire home for any amount of time.

The best thing about this option is flexibility. You’ll find options from small lockers to double garage-sized units for your needs.

You should also have the added benefit of being able to upgrade or downgrade the unit size at your leisure. You’ll only pay for the space that you use as opposed to crate storage (where you must pay for the entire crate).

Self-storage units of this kind can also be ideal for storing inventory for your small business.


Commercial self-storage:

Commercial self-storage allows you to store your large equipment for extended periods of time in units that span thousands of square feet.

These facilities also provide the option of daily access for when you need to grab something that’s business-critical.

The best news is that you’ll no longer have to deal with landlords who micromanage your day-to-day business operations.

These units also come with the climate-controlled peace of mind of autonomous operation.
