Your storage units questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does a storage unit cost near me?

Renting a storage unit costs an average of $125 to $175 per month for the most common size of 100 square feet. Prices vary according to the size and whether the unit is at an indoor warehouse with climate control or in an outdoor garage.

  • Indoor self-storage without climate control costs $65 to $200 monthly.
  • Outdoor self-storage units cost $125 to $250 per month with drive-up access.
  • Climate-controlled units cost $100 to $250 monthly for humidity-sensitive items.
  • Car or RV storage costs $70 to $300 per month depending on if it's indoors or outdoors.

How does renting a storage unit work?

The process of renting a storage unit typically follows these steps:

  1. Head to the storage facility and choose a unit that fits your requirements.
  2. Study the terms with the facility's management and provide a photo ID for verification.
  3. Give your initial monthly payment upon signing the lease agreement.
  4. Secure a vehicle—either rent one or enlist the help of a friend—to transport your items to the unit.
  5. For self-storage options, you'll pack and secure the unit yourself.
  6. Full-service units offer a more hands-off approach where the company handles the pickup, delivery, and often itemizes your belongings. You can request them to photograph your items for an inventory list.
  7. Schedule monthly payments for the duration of your storage needs.
  8. Access your belongings at the facility whenever necessary.
  9. When ending the lease, you can opt for moving assistance to help clear out your unit.

Are storage units worth the cost?

Renting a storage unit is worth the cost if you're staying in college dorms, moving, serving in the armed forces, or remodeling your home. A storage unit is also beneficial for long-term storage of RVs and seasonal vehicles, especially when home parking is limited.

Conversely, storage unit rentals aren't cost-effective for keeping easily replaceable items that you won't need beyond a year. Be cautious about paying more for yearly storage than the items inside are actually worth.

Does renters insurance cover storage units?

While renters insurance often includes coverage for storage units, the extent of the coverage varies. Insurance coverage is common for belongings stored outside of your primary residence, typically up to 10% of the personal property limit in your policy. This coverage kicks in after meeting the deductible.

  • Review your policy to check if it covers only theft or extends to accidents, floods, fires, and natural disasters.
  • To file a claim in the future, you'll need an itemized list of everything in your storage unit, so keep photos of high-value items.

Who is responsible if a storage unit gets broken into?

If your storage unit gets broken into, then the terms of your policy outline who's responsible. When you opted out of insurance and signed an agreement that absolves the company of responsibility for theft of uninsured items, then the company isn't liable.

However, if the company's contract commits to secure storage and a theft occurs due to an oversight by their staff, the company is responsible.

Can you live, sleep, or work in a storage unit?

You cannot live, sleep, or work inside a storage unit due to local and national housing regulations. The storage facility will likely evict anyone violating their rental agreement.

If you require more than just a space for your belongings, consider warehouses that offer combined office and storage spaces.

Can you put a car in a storage unit?

A storage unit can accommodate your car if the facility explicitly designated the space for vehicle storage. Typically, these storage solutions are in secured outdoor areas featuring covered parking. Storage spaces for cars range from 200 to 600 square feet, and some include indoor options with 24/7 surveillance.

Due to potential fire hazards from fuel leaks, storing a car with a full gas tank inside an enclosed unit might not be permissible.

Getting estimates from storage unit companies

While searching for a storage unit near you, be sure to:

  • Compare prices from 3 or more reputable storage facilities.
  • Verify that the company has a business license with a history of 5+ years.
  • Read their reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Check if they have business and liability insurance to cover losses from accidents such as theft, fires, flooding, or severe storms.
  • Keep a copy of the storage rental terms, rate agreements, and receipts.

What questions do I ask before renting a storage unit?

When considering a storage unit rental, discuss the following points with management:

  • How long has this storage facility been operational?
  • Is direct drive-up access available for my unit?
  • Can I preview my designated storage area prior to my initial payment?
  • Is the quoted price static, or is there a possibility of rate hikes in the future?
  • Do you thoroughly clean each unit before a new tenant comes?
  • Are the unit walls both insulated and resistant to fire?
  • Will I have restricted hours for unit access, or is it open 24/7?
  • What's the added expense for insurance and its coverage details?
  • For units located above the ground level, are elevators present?
  • What's the premium for availing a climate-controlled unit?
  • Are routine checks conducted for pest infestations?
  • May I bring my own lock, or what other lock options do you offer?
  • Is the entire facility under continuous video monitoring?
  • Are your staff here at all times, or just during standard business hours?
  • Do you offer combined units that merge storage with office space?
  • · If I choose an office with storage, can I use this address to collect mail?
