Mistakes a College Student Should Avoid When Renting a Storage Unit

Leasing the Wrong Size Storage Unit

You do not have to guess which storage unit would be the best fit. We have an online storage calculator to give you a sizing recommendation right away. In just a few clicks, mark the items you are looking to store, and the tool will give you a suggested best fit. You can also call or stop by our office to inquire further about our storage options and ask additional questions. Our storage experts can give you an accurate estimate of the storage unit size you need, and they can set you up with the right features and storage supplies to protect your belongings and cater to your specific storage needs.

Not Getting Protection for Your Storage

A storage protection plan is not just an additional fee! Without it, your items will not be protected in the event of damage to your storage unit. Blythe Landing Self Storage offers different protection plans, so you can find one that works with your budget. If you already have your own plan, you will need to send proof of protection during the rental process.

Using Poor Packing Methods

Storage will not be much use to you if you return to your items crushed in their boxes. Pack each box carefully to protect each object, and take the time to wrap up fragile items. Our office sells packing supplies, like boxes, tape, and locks, on Brown Mill Road. We recommend packing heavier items on the bottom and lighter on the top—use this when packing boxes and packing your storage unit. Plan ahead which items will go where, because a disorganized packing process is usually when fragile items get overlooked and broken.
