Pros and Cons of Using a Cheap Storage Unit Rental

While we like to think that we are your favorite self storage company, we know we have competitors. We know some competitors may be less expensive than us. But if you have considered using cheap self storage units in the past, you have probably wondered what was sacrificed in order to make that storage unit so inexpensive.

Pros of Using a Cheap Storage Unit

Cheap storage is what it sounds like, cheap. If you are looking to rent a storage unit merely to get items out of your house, and are not overly concerned with great service, cleanliness, safety and security, a cheap storage unit may work for you.

Cons of Buying a Cheap Storage Unit

The point of using a storage unit in the first place is to keep your items stored safely until it’s time to use them again. If you store with a cheap storage company who doesn’t value you or the items you are storing, that might not be the case. In a month, a few months, or however long you planned to store with the company, you could be more likely to find your items damaged or missing. In order to offer cheap storage unit rentals, a company has to cut corners somewhere—often at your expense. Security cameras that don’t monitor 24/7, or facilities that don’t offer quality gated access or don’t even have security cameras or restricted entry — skimping on these important features is how they keep prices low.
