What Is The Ideal Storage Unit For Me?

When looking for a storage unit or a place to store your belongings, you want it to be four things: secure, well-maintained, accessible, and affordable. And now, there’s a way you can have all four of these options through Neighbor. This will make your storing life a thousand times better, I promise. Let me tell you why.

Questions to determine the best storage unit for you

#1 – How important is security?

When considering where to store your possessions, security is the number one thing to consider. This doesn’t mean that you need the most high-tech security solution available, but you’ll want to consider how important this is to you. Most self storage facilities have a locked gate and security cameras.

With storage on Neighbor, you’ll likely be storing on someone’s residential property. It doesn’t get much more secure than this; I mean, it’s their home, they’re going to do everything in their power to make sure everything inside isn’t harmed. In fact, your items are 14x safer when stored in a home compared to a storage facility!

Most homes are well-lit and well-maintained and some even have fences, walls, and even door alarms. The best part is: there’s usually someone living in that space, kind of like a permanent on-site manager. While choosing your space, you’ll be able to view the profile of your host to learn a little bit about them, as well as contact them to get to know them even more. Plus, Neighbor’s $25,000 Renter Guarantee protects your items in case any issues arise.

#2 – Is it climate controlled?

This is one of the most important features of storage (and one that you’ll have to pay more for). You’ll want to keep most of your items in a space that’s between 60 and 80 degrees year round and between 45%- 55% humidity. Decide how important it is to keep your items stored in a climate controlled environment (especially if you’re storing in geographies with freezing winters or boiling summers). When temperatures get too hot or cold, or wet or dry, many of your items could become damaged – wood warps, leather wrinkles and cracks, pictures fade, metals rust, etc. If storing your items inside a residential or commercial property on Neighbor, climate control is likely offered.

#3 – Is it easily accessible?

If you are going to be paying through the nose for a storage unit and locked into a contract at a self storage facility then it better be easily accessible! You don’t want to have to drive for 30 minutes to an hour just to get to your unit. If you have to make multiple trips then your day is shot!

Luckily there is a better way to store your belongings. With Neighbor you get a storage space at 50% the cost, on month-month contract, and it’s in your own neighborhood only a few minutes away. No more lengthy contracts or crazy amounts of paperwork, no more wasted gas, and at 50% the cost you can afford to buy the storage unit that is perfect for your needs. Neighbor is your one stop shop for storage.

#4 – Is it affordable?

Because Neighbor storage units are on another’s unused property, prices are much cheaper than a storage facility. Each space on Neighbor is set by the homeowner and is based on square footage and on average, these spaces are 50% the cost of what you would pay at a traditional self storage facility. Additionally, Neighbor has listings for all of your storage needs: RV parking in driveways, car storage in garages, open bedrooms, empty warehouses, indoor vehicle storage and more.
