What questions to ask when looking into storage facilities in Hove

Self storage is very useful but, if you have never used it before, when you begin looking into self storage it can all look very overwhelming. There will be many decisions to make over unit sizes and the type of contract you want. 

There are questions that you need to ask yourself before you rent any type of storage unit.

What do I need to store?

This may seem like a really simple question but it is important that you make an actual list of everything that you are wanting to store within your unit. Then you need to think about whether all these items will fit into boxes or if some items will need to be wrapped or covered.

Once you have your list you will be able to gauge what size unit you need. Our storage facility in Hove will have a selection of sizes for you to choose from. Within our Hove store our units range from 15 sq ft to 150 sq ft. 

How long do I need my unit for?

The length of time you need your unit will be entirely dependent on what you use it for. If you are using your unit to store items during your home renovations or during a house sale then you will have quite a solid end date for your rental period. 

If you are using your unit for personal belongings but in order to give yourself and your family more space in your home, such as storing seasonal items, this may be an ongoing rental period. 

Many people use storage facilities in Hove for their businesses and trying to decide on the right rental period can be quite hard. You cannot know what will happen with your business and you may come to points where you need to upgrade or downgrade your unit. 

Which brings us to the next question: 

Which storage facilities in Hove offer flexible contracts?

Flexible contracts are so important as they allow you to change or leave your unit before your rental period has ended. Long term contracts are extremely expensive and you are trapped using a unit that may not fit your business anymore or that you do not need at all.

Having chatted to many of our customers, we know how important flexibility is to them which is why we only offer flexible rental contracts. 

How often will I need to go to my unit?

If you are only going to be storing seasonal items, then the answer to this may be only a few times a year. And if you are renovating your home, then you may need to only go back once the renovations are done.

If however you are using your unit for your business, location will be extremely important. Our storage facility is perfect for anyone living in Hove or the surrounding area as it is less than 10 minutes from the centre of Hove.
