When getting a home ready to sell, many people need to find storage options to safeguard their belongings. Depending on the volume of household items to be put away, and the length of time they will be there, one of the smaller options is the locker rental. Multiple units can be brought to the home by either the mover, or the homeowner, and filled before returning them to the facility for the contracted amount of time. A family may find this storage is all they need for special purposes.
Anything over sixty (60) days is considered a long-term contract. Quite often, a locker is too small to hold all of the possessions, in which case a long -term vault may be what is required. These mobile units are also brought to the home and filled, then transported by the mover to the facility and kept securely for months or years as needed. Multiple vaults can be transported on one truck in a secure manner, saving transportation costs.
Many people find storage in vaults the perfect option when traveling overseas. Vaults keep the possessions safe and secure for their return to the U.S. Many international corporations in large cities like Houston often require some executives and their families to move for special assignments. The home can be rented out unfurnished, and all of the furniture kept safe for the duration of the extended stay. There are also times when furniture and belongings need to be stored during major renovations to keep everything safe and clean.
How can a person find the best storage units in Houston? A business website may answer many questions, and some even offer a chat line or provide a telephone number. Peace of mind can be gained by interviewing referrals and reviewing the insurance information of a business, and other credentials before making a commitment.
It is also important to ask the following questions:
- Is there convenient access to the vaults at any time?
- Has the business been around for many years? This suggests reliability and happy customers.
- Have the employees had background checks?
- Are the facilities secure and safe? It’s important that the household goods be kept damage-free and dry.
