Many people wonder just how it works.

Once you find the self-storage facility of your liking, you will have to sign a contract. You will want to check with your facility to see what their specified rental periods are. Some require a 3-month minimum. (We personally have a month-month rental agreement.)

Different companies have different rules and regulations as far as services they offer, you will want to familiarize yourself with the terms and conditions. It can seem a bit overwhelming at first, but in the long run, you want to see what you are getting into.

Here are 2 things you should know right out of the gate; it is illegal to live in your storage unit and/or to conduct business in your storage unit.

Lastly, be sure to enjoy having a place to store your items! Be sure you get the most for your money.
