4 Tips for Choosing the Right Storage Unit, Middle Creek, Nebraska

Whether you are downsizing your home or need a place to store your belongings while looking for your next place to live, a storage unit can come in handy. At East “O” Street Self Storage in Lincoln, NE, they have units in a variety of sizes that come with numerous features to keep your items safe from weather damage and theft. To help you figure out which storage unit is best for your things, here are a few suggestions they have to help you choose the unit that best meets your needs.

How to Select a Storage Unit

1. Make a List

Before you know what storage unit you’ll require, you’ll need to know what’s going in it. Make a list of everything you plan to place in the unit so you can estimate the amount of square footage required to hold all of your things. Then, add a little bit of additional space because you’ll need room to safely access your belongings whenever you need them.

2. Decide on Outdoor or Indoor Storage

An outdoor storage unit might save you a little bit of money if you don’t have any of these particular items.

3. Think About Security

Are you storing any priceless or valuable items? Then you want a storage unit that offers a security option. Choose a facility that has gated entry, number-pad locks, security guards, and cameras. The more of these options you can tick off, the more secure your belongings will be.

4. Consider Open Hours

If you plan on accessing your storage unit frequently, you might prefer a facility that offers 24-hour access. This might include round-the-clock management or special codes that allow you to enter the unit in the off hours. The last thing you want is to be stuck with a facility that closes early, making it difficult to grab an item when you need it.  

When you need a spacious storage unit with top-of-the-line security systems, affordable rates, and a clean facility, contact East “O” Street Self Storage. You can learn more about their storage options by calling (402) 489-0134 or by visiting their website.
