Key Things To Remember Before You Rent A Self Storage Space

Renting a storage space to store your extra things is the best and cost-effective way to create that extra space. However, before deciding on the storage company remember these key things to avoid troubles.

1. Stay within budget
Before you rent any storage unit, ask the storage manager about how regularly they increase their rates. This is important to prevent troubles at a later stage as you will factor in the extra costs in advance. If you agree with it, then ask the manager to state the numbers in writing.

2. What if the rents are due?
If the rents are due, ask the manager what will be the options to pay the rent. Some storage units provide online payment options, while others allow you to carry forward the dues to certain number of months. Choose a schedule that suits you and don’t diverge from it.

3. Accessing frequencies
It is important to know how often you are going to access your self storage unit. This will help you ask the manager about their business hours and accordingly you can visit the storage unit. Also if you plan to visit your self storage unit regularly, you will want to rent a unit that is larger by one unit size so that you can move around freely and comfortably without damaging your things. Remember to keep the items you think you will retrieve often near the entrance of the storage unit.

Moving Into Your First Home? 3 Tips For An Easier Life

Before you find an apartment and sign a lease, you might want to browse through these 4 tips to help you decide on the best option.

1. Keep room for extra expenditure:
First-time home seekers often run into the problem of being left with less disposable income as they don’t factor in costs for electricity, internet, AC, cable and so on. They just consider the monthly fee. Hence, budgeting is an important means to tackle the first hurdle to a hassle-free life in your first home.

2. Think commute:
Decide whether you will drive or take the public transport. If you’re driving, consider two things- Is there a parking facility around your apartment or will you have to struggle for street parking? Will you be living in a traffic prone are? If taking public transportation, is the apartment situated nearby the bus stop or railway station?

3. Factor in the landlord:
You don’t get to choose the landlord but you do get to choose the apartment even when you rent. You must enquire about the landlord’s credibility. Is he trustworthy and not cheat you? Hence, before you sign on the dotted line, spend time on research.
