New to self storage? Here are five things to remember 

Self storage offers many perks and benefits, such as a secure space to keep your belongings during a move and somewhere to keep your clutter. Yet, with so many options available, it can be intimidating to figure out where to begin.

Whether you’re downsizing your home, need more space for hobby equipment or growing your business, self storage can be a convenient and cost-effective solution. If you’re new to self storage, keep reading as we’ve put together a few tips to consider to make the process easier and more enjoyable.



One of the most important considerations is the size of the unit and whether it can comfortably accommodate your belongings. One that is too small will lead to a cramped and disorganised space, while one that is too large could be a waste of money. Make a rough inventory and measure large items for a better idea of how much space you’ll need.

Pro Tip: Louth Self Storage offers a size guide, which can help to put the amount of space you need into perspective.


Accessibility and location

The location of the self storage facility will affect how often you visit your unit and how convenient it is to get to your items. Consider how often you need to access your belongings and whether the location will impact your convenience. It’s also important to consider the accessibility of the storage unit itself.

For example, does it offer space to load and unload your items safely?



Security is very important to consider when choosing a self storage unit. A secure facility will give you confidence that your belongings are safe at all times, offering peace of mind. Consider features such as surveillance cameras, fencing and secure locks on the unit doors.



A self storage unit is a cost-effective alternative to making more space. Rather than renovate your home, buy a larger property or reserve an expensive warehouse for your business, self storage provides an affordable solution. Even so, self storage units vary in price, so choose a facility that offers a competitive rate without compromising quality or security.



Life can be unpredictable, so a flexible rental agreement is an important consideration when choosing a self storage unit. Consider a facility that rents space month-to-month, with the option to upsize or downsize as your needs change.
