A self-storage unit is an area of space rented by a person or organization to store their worldly belongings. The storage space is usually locked up with a padlock, and the renters have a set of keys, meaning that they can access their storage units at any time. You can rent a storage unit for a monthly fee or a smaller one-off fee, depending on the storage facility’s set up. The storage units are usually set up in a series of rows, extending outwards from the office. The storage unit company will usually get the first half of each row and rent your unit from them. Self Storage is a very convenient way to store items you no longer have room for in your home.
