Portable Storage or a Self Storage Facility: Which is Right for You?

Portable Storage or a Self Storage Facility: Which is Right for You?

Many people in the U.S. use a storage option at some time in their lives and have likely weighed the pros and cons of portable storage versus an off-site storage facility. Each storage option offers ways to meet different needs, but one may be better than the other for your current storage situation. If you are looking for self-storage units in Concord and are trying to determine how to best store your belongings, read on to learn more about these two popular options. 

Off-site storage facility

A self-storage facility is a great option for people looking to store their items for a longer time period. The monthly cost of  a self-storage unit is usually very reasonable, and often includes security systems, on-site staff and customer service, and convenient hours in which you can access your unit. Off-site storage facilities can also be versatile in what they help store. For example, some facilities offer contractor storage units for business contractors or vehicle storage like for boats or RV’s. Additionally, self-storage facilities can be flexible over time, allowing you to move to larger or smaller units, depending on your changing storage needs. It is important, however, to find an off-site facility that is easy to access, so you don’t have to travel far or out of your way to get to your unit. 

Portable Storage

Portable storage can be an easy option for people who are moving or only need storage for a short time, as in the case of home renovation projects. Portable storage can be very convenient in a moving process, as the storage container is delivered to your home where you load up your items, and then the container is driven to your new home for you to unload. For homeowners who need to clear a room or section of the house for a remodel, the storage container can keep all the furniture and other home items secure until they are ready to be placed back into the newly renovated space. The timeframe for your portable storage rental, however, should be as short as possible. They are more expensive to rent and should be loaded, unloaded, and returned quickly.
