Boxie24 Storage offers storage solutions for individuals (residential customers) and business customers. We even include free pickup. Awesome, right?
So, what exactly is self-storage? Well, if you just don’t have the space in your apartment, home or office, you can storage anything you don’t need on a daily basis in a self-storage location. Depending on the facility, your belongings might be stored in rooms, lockers, containers or outdoor space. Storage is usually rented on a short-term, month to month basis.
The use of self-storage is more common in the United States than anywhere else in the world. Consider this statistic: of the 58,000 storage facilities worldwide in 2009, 46,000 were located in the United States.
As noted above, the majority of self-storage facilities rent space month-to-month. Several, like Boxie24, do offer options for longer term rentals as well. Typically, individuals rent the space to store furniture, clothing, seasonal items, etc. In most places, living in or working out of a storage unit is prohibited. Businesses commonly use self-storage to store excess inventory or documents and records.
Beyond storage, there are storage facilities that offer related items, like boxes, locks, and packing supplies. Some also offer truck rentals for renters to transport their items in either direction. Often times, storage facilities offer insurance for renters. Basic insurance can be free or offered for purchase. A homeowners’ policy will cover certain stored items – usually just a percentage of the total value.
A self-storage facility does not take possession or control of the contents of the storage unit unless a lien is imposed for non-payment of rent, and then the items are legally allowed to be auctioned off.
You might choose to use self-storage if:
You’re moving to a smaller home or apartment and need to safely store your extra possessions.
You’re moving on a temporary basis and it doesn’t make sense to take all of your belonging with you for that time.
You own or operate a business that has excess inventory on-hand.
You have a child returning home from college, or an elderly parent moving in with you, and you need to move the contents of a spare bedroom, for example, to make room.
When you store your belongings with Boxie24, you get affordable, secure self-storage solutions and top-notch customer service.
