Renting a Storage Unit: FAQs and Insider Tips

Understanding the Storage Unit Rental Process with America Safe -N- Sound Self-Storage

What are the Benefits of Renting a Storage Unit?

Renting a self-storage unit comes with a host of benefits. It provides a flexible, secure, and cost-effective solution for storing your belongings, whether personal items, business inventories, or archival materials.

During transition periods, such as moving homes, downsizing, or renovating a storage unit can be a lifesaver, allowing you to keep your items safe and out of the way until they’re needed again. For businesses, a self-storage unit can serve as an additional space for storing inventory or business equipment. 

At America Safe -N- Sound Self-Storage, we offer secure, clean, and easily accessible storage solutions that cater to various needs, whether you need extra space or a business looking for an affordable storage solution.

Navigating Your Storage Unit Size Options: How to Make the Right Choice?

Choosing the correct size for your storage unit is crucial to ensure you make the most efficient use of the space and not overspending on a unit larger than you need. A unit too small may lead to your items being stored in cramped conditions, potentially damaging them or making access difficult. Conversely, a unit too large might mean you are paying for space you do not require.


To select the right size, start by taking inventory of all the items you plan to store. Consider the space you may need to move around within the unit. At America Safe -N- Sound Self-Storage, we offer multiple size options, from small units for a few boxes to larger ones capable of storing an entire home’s worth of items. Our experienced and knowledgeable staff can guide you to the perfect fit, ensuring you get the best value and use from your rented storage space.

Unpacking the Concept of Climate Controlled Storage: Is it Right for You?

Climate-controlled storage units are a type of storage that maintain a consistent temperature and humidity level year-round, protecting your items from extreme weather conditions. These units are particularly beneficial for storing sensitive items such as electronics, artwork, antique furniture, musical instruments, and important documents, which could be damaged by fluctuating temperatures and humidity levels.


Although climate-controlled units might be more expensive than regular storage units, the extra cost provides valuable protection for your valuable and sensitive items. If you’re uncertain about whether you need a climate-controlled unit, our team at America Safe -N- Sound Self-Storage can provide expert advice and guidance to help you make an informed decision based on the type of items you plan to store.

Understanding Storage Restrictions: What Items Are Prohibited in a Storage Unit?

While storage units offer a versatile solution for storing a variety of items, certain materials and goods are prohibited due to safety and legal reasons. Hazardous materials, including flammable or explosive substances, are not permitted due to the potential risk they pose. Similarly, perishable goods, live plants, and animals cannot be stored because they could attract pests or create unsanitary conditions. Any items that are illegal or stolen are, of course, strictly forbidden.


It’s crucial to understand these storage guidelines before renting a unit to avoid any complications or potential legal issues down the line. At America Safe -N- Sound Self-Storage, we prioritize the safety of our clients and our facilities, and our team is always available to clarify any questions or doubts you might have about what can and cannot be stored in your unit.

Maximizing Your Storage Space: Insider Tips for Efficient Storage

Storage units can quickly become cluttered and inefficient if items are not stored correctly. To optimize your storage unit, consider disassembling large items like furniture to save space and make storing and retrieving items easier. Boxes should be stacked with the heaviest on the bottom and the lightest on top to prevent damage.

Consider using clear plastic bins instead of cardboard boxes for easy visibility of your stored items. Keep an updated, detailed inventory of all items in the unit, so you know exactly where to find them when needed. Creating clear paths in the unit will also make access to items at the back easier.

With a little planning and organization, your storage unit at America Safe -N- Sound Self-Storage can be an efficient, well-organized, and secure space for your belongings.
