Florida, Miami (PressExposure) August 02, 2011 -- South Florida homeowners are always thinking of smarter and more practical ways to organize their belongings. Instead of throwing away stuff that may be useful in the future, why not opt to keep your possessions safe in a Miami self storage unit. Better yet, make sure to ask for the first month free!
So, what are the benefits of having a store-it-yourself unit? Storage facilities provide space convenient enough to cater to anyone's needs. When people don't have enough room in their homes for large furniture or old books, boxes and clothes - a mini storage unit is the most practical solution. Keeping one's things safely in a storage unit would ensure the owner peace of mind and a clutter free home.
Self storage rooms in Miami are not limited to one type only. The tenant would be able to choose the best unit type for his or her things. Managers assist their customers in the selection process so there is nothing to worry about. Most Storage companies offer a wide range of sizes to accommodate one's needs. Units range from a 4'x4'x4' air conditioned lockers to a 10'x25' garage bay, approximately ten feet high.
Climate controlled units are also available to take care of valuable and precious items that may be damaged due to weather changes like paintings, art work, antiques and more. These things will be properly secured in climate controlled rooms with twenty four hour surveillance cameras. The better storage companies have an electronic gate system which can only be opened by the personal code assigned to each individual tenant.
Ask the majority of people and they will tell you it is best if the storage company has units on the ground level to avoid going up and down stairs or elevators. Ideally, outdoor units have direct drive-up access. Drive-up units are ground level units that have their own loading area. These are ideal for storing large, heavy items or equipment because the client has the ability to load his or her belongings directly from their vehicle.
Most storage companies use roll-up doors that are very similar to garage doors. These are accessed by sliding a latch and lifting the door upward. Roll-up doors are the most common doors in self-storage facilities and are bigger than most garage doors, allowing tenants to maximize the space of their unit.
With all the benefits provided by storage companies, one still becomes hesitant because of long term contracts that may end up underutilized. Some storage companies offer monthly leases, so paying will not be much of a hassle. Insurance is also available, because some people just want to be certain their possessions will remain safe and sound during the period of time they are stored.
