Finding A Cheap Self Storage UnitFinding A Cheap Self Storage Unit

At some point in life you are going to find yourself up to your eyeballs in stuff and your quest to find good, cheap self storage will begin. While you may not be ready to part with your belongings you may also not be ready to pay a lot of money to store them. You might think that the words good and cheap don't go hand and hand but in the world of self storage they sometimes can.

There will of course be certain factors you want to look at before you give any of your money away. You will want to consider things such as security, gated or not, and access to the unit for yourself, and these are questions you should ask every storage unit facility you talk to in order to help you make your decision.

Finding a cheap storage unit can be a daunting task or it can be an easy task, it just depends on how you go about it. Here are some ways for you to find good cheap self storage:

•Online: To find a cheap storage unit in your local area all you have to do is conduct a Google, Yahoo, or Ping search for 'cheap storage units' followed by your zip code. This will bring up any storage unit facilities in your local area that use the word 'cheap' in their description. You can also try 'low cost' or 'affordable' in your search as well as many business owners will shy away from the word cheap in their advertising. Once you locate a handful of storage unit facilities in your area call them up and ask all the questions you want answered.

•Yellow Pages: This step will require just a bit more leg work on your part. You begin by searching in the yellow pages under 'self storage' and then just start dialing numbers. Your first phone call will be nothing more than asking how much they charge for your ideal size storage unit per month. After you have called a couple dozen or so you can see which ones offer the cheapest prices and then call those specific storage unit facilities back and ask all of your questions then.

•Hit the streets: This step will obviously take you the most amount of time. It entails you getting in your car and driving to the different storage facilities and acquiring price information. One advantage to this type of searching is that you actually get to see firsthand how the facility looks. You can simply look around in stealth mode or you can actually ask all the questions you want and request to see the storage unit you are considering renting. If you are not in a talkative mood, go with the stealth operation and be sure to get a business card so that you can call the cheaper storage unit facilities at a later time.

If your area is like most areas in the United States these days, there are a number of different storage unit facilities that you will have to choose from. This is a good thing for you as they will all be trying to undercut one another. With just a little bit of work and a handful of questions asked you too can find a good cheap self storage unit.
