Storage Units for Short Term Storage

If you live close to a storage facility, a storage unit is an affordable option for temporary storage. Indoor and outdoor storage units come in a variety of sizes. An outdoor storage unit is similar to a garage with a garage-style door. Indoor units offer more protection from the elements but are a little more expensive.

You don’t need to be moving to take advantage of temporary storage.

You don’t need to be relocating or cleaning out an estate to take advantage of temporary storage. Many people will rent a storage unit to help them sort through and declutter their homes. Also, people with limited storage space can use storage units four a couple of months to store seasonal items like snow blowers and jet skis.

Short Term Rental Agreements

One of the most commonly asked questions is if you can rent a storage unit for a week. In most cases, no. Even though weekly storage rentals are unavailable, most locations offer month to month leases, which is ideal for short-term storage for moving. Be sure to read your storage contract carefully to understand all the terms and conditions.
