What is up with the self storage industry these days? What are all these new services that are being added on and are they really of any use to me? In the good old days, people were absolutely contented with how their traditional self storage companies were serving them. Why did things have to go and change?

The “old school” of self storage used to be able to provide a pretty fantastic way of doing things, people were just interested in getting their things moved out into a safe and secure space and that is exactly what the big companies of the days of yore would provide. Now, self storage companies are starting to step it up and provide you lots of add-on services to make things that much simpler for you! We highlight them here…

Packing and Loading Services
Perhaps the biggest hassle with moving things into a self storage unit is having to lug things around, especially if you’ve got big and bulky items like an old refrigerator or even a worn out couch. Not everybody has the muscle power and headcount to carry all these things out of their house and to the storage warehouses, so self storage companies have gathered teams that are able to help you “move in” to your storage unit with their help!

Climate Control
Some items going into storage can be quite valuable. In our experience, we have customers that sometimes keep art and good quality wine in their storage units. Some people even keep their winter clothes or costumes inside the self storage units and are worried about what the weather and environment may do to their things if they were kept inside the unit for a long period of time. Climate Controlled units will be able to help regulate temperatures and will help to minimise if not eliminate the impact of humidity and microorganisms on the items within.

Insurance
Instead of having to source for external vendors for insurance some self storage companies have started underwriting their own insurance plans. This is so important for the worried self storage renter who wonders if his items will be safe, not only for the period of storage, but throughout the transit and loading to get their items there! Providing in-house insurance is a good way for self storage companies to put a seal of reliability on their brand and let people know that they take their responsibility over the items in their care seriously!
