Commonly asked storage unit questions:

Why do people rent storage units?

There are many reasons why someone may choose to rent a storage unit. Having a storage unit means having valuable extra space to store your items. Some of the most common things that people put in storage rentals are:

  • Artwork

  • Extra furniture

  • Holiday decorations

  • Boxes

  • Antiques

  • Paperwork

  • Clothing

  • Baby items

  • Toys 

  • And more!

It is extremely common for someone to run out of room in their own home. Humans just tend to keep and store so much stuff that it’s almost impossible to stay on top of sorting through everything and throwing stuff out. If this sounds like you, you’re certainly not alone. 

Instead of sorting through stuff and throwing it away, many people decide to rent storage units. Storing extra stuff you can’t part with is only one reason you may need a rental unit. You also may have stuff that you genuinely can’t part with. This may include antiques you’ve inherited from your parents, books or clothing you need but can’t store, holiday decorations you use every year but don’t have a place for, and more. If you need a rental unit in Midland Michigan, then Arnold Self Storage is the perfect place to put your valuables. 

How does self-storage work?

This is a common question from first-time storage renters. If you’ve never rented a storage unit before, then you may be confused about the process. Here are the basic steps of renting a storage unit:

  1. Research storage facilities in your area and choose the one you want

  2. Contact this storage facility and set up an appointment or rent a unit online

  3. Fill out all forms and paperwork required

  4. Take your stuff to the storage unit, get your key, and unload

  5. Lock up your storage unit and keep your key in a safe place

  6. Come back whenever you need to pick up or drop things off

The process is really pretty simple but may sound scary if you’ve never rented a storage unit before. Self-storage means that you are storing something yourself, so for the most part you won’t even have to talk to anyone or get permission to visit your storage unit. All you need to do is show up and do whatever you need to in your unit. 

Self-storage units are typically accessible by vehicle, meaning that you can pull your car or truck right up to the unit, open the garage-like door, and unload. The process is super easy, but make sure to bring some strong buddies or family members if you’ll be unloading heavy or large items.

If you need a storage unit, call or contact Arnold Self Storage today for some of the best rates in the Midland, Michigan area.  

How does self-storage work while moving homes?

One of the most common reasons people rent a storage unit is because they are in the middle of a move. It doesn’t matter if you’re moving across town or moving across the country, moving is hard and may require some extra space where you can store some stuff.

Many people like to try and get rid of as much stuff as possible while going through a move, especially if they’re moving far away or to a smaller home. However, you can’t get rid of everything, and getting rid of some stuff may just be too difficult. 

Something else to consider is that sometimes you have a few weeks or a few months between homes. This means you may be staying with your parents, friends, or another family member during this time, or temporarily renting another house. If you’re staying with someone else or staying in a house only temporarily, then you probably don’t want to go through the hassle of moving everything only to move it again in a few weeks or months.  That’s where a storage unit comes in.

Yes, it’s still a hassle to move everything you have from your old home to a storage unit and then to a new home, but it’s better than the alternative, which is either get rid of everything or store it at your parents’ house. 

Storage unit facilities often rent units on a month-to-month basis. This means that you can rent a unit for only a month or two instead of signing a long-term rental agreement. Renting a unit for however long you need is extremely helpful and can relieve a lot of the stress that comes with moving homes. If you’re moving now or plan to move in the future, start looking into storage facilities.

How does climate-controlled storage work?

If you’ve taken a look at our Rent Storage page, then you’ve probably noticed that we offer several sizes of climate-controlled storage units. For someone who hasn’t rented a storage unit before or who doesn’t know the lingo, this phrase may be confusing. 

Climate-controlled storage means that your valuables will be kept in a special storage unit where the climate and temperature are carefully controlled. Some materials such as wood, lace, metal, leather, etc. are very susceptible to temperature changes and may be damaged if the temperature is too hot or too cold. That’s why so many customers decide to rent climate-controlled storage units. 

Climate-controlled storage units utilize special technology to analyze and control the temperature in your storage unit. If the temperature rises, the system will bring it down, and vice versa. Your items will be kept inside a specific temperature range and you can rest easy knowing that your unit is safe. 

With a climate-controlled unit, you won’t have to worry about your items being damaged by the temperature or climate. We take climate control seriously and promise to do everything we can to keep your valuables in tip-top shape. 

If you’re still worried about your items being damaged, you can add our Tenant Protection to your storage rental. This ensures that even if something does happen to your stuff, like vandalism, rain, fire, or vermin, you’ll be protected and can even get your money back. 

How much does it cost to rent a storage unit?

There are a couple of factors that go into determining a storage unit price. These factors include the size of your unit, whether it is climate controlled or not, and where it is located. 

Obviously, how big or small your storage unit is will contribute significantly to the cost. The bigger the unit is, the more expensive it will probably be. This means that planning what you’re going to be storing is important and may help determine what size you should rent. If you don’t know yet exactly what you plan to store, then choosing a size will be difficult and you’ll have to guess which unit you should get. If you know that you need to store two couches, a table, and a bunch of boxes, you can figure out how much space you need and only pay for the correct size.

You’ll spend more money if your unit is climate-controlled. This is because of the technology that goes into controlling the temperature of your unit and the limited number of climate-controlled units available. 

Where your unit is located also plays a role in the price. If it is a self-storage unit that you drive up to yourself, it will probably be cheaper than a unit located inside of a building run by a facility manager and staffed with several employees. 

If you have any questions about how much it costs to rent a storage unit at Arnold Self Storage, please contact us or give us a call. Our prices are listed on our Rent Storage page, but if anything is unclear or you would like verification, don’t hesitate to reach out.
