Self storage facilities are a fast growing business, in which space, often called "storage space," is rented to renters, typically for a short term. Self-storage facilities can be rented to individual tenants or to small groups. They can be as large as one-thousand square feet or as small as twenty-four cubic feet. There are a variety of types of self-storage facilities, including single-family units, multi-family units, industrial units, and even mobile units that are available to store a large number of goods. The rent varies based on the size of the unit and its purpose, but can range anywhere from a few dollars per day to several hundred dollars per day for large storage facilities.
Self storage units are sometimes used as temporary storage spaces during the construction of a building. Construction crews may use self-storage units to store large items such as woodworking plans, electrical equipment, heavy machinery and other large tools until the site is ready for occupancy. This arrangement can save a lot of money for the contractors since they will not have to hire extra labor to install large items like large doors and other large pieces of furniture. Construction companies often rent self-storage units when building new homes to store furniture, electronics, jewelry and other expensive items.
Self storage units are also commonly used by individuals who are moving into a rental house or apartment. The renters will often need temporary storage space to store their furniture and other items before moving into the residence. Some of these renters will take the time to store their personal belongings in a locked storage unit until the time they move into the home, while other renters will choose a storage facility based on price rather than for the quality of the items.
Temporary storage can be a useful tool when working with an individual or group who needs to move into a home or apartment but does not own the property. It is common practice for the owner of a rental house or apartment building to ask the tenant to stay in the house until the property is ready for occupancy. After that point, the property's management will contact the tenant's landlord to arrange for the tenant's belongings to be moved to the new location. When tenants are willing to leave the rental property on the scheduled date, they are not usually asked to pay extra for the cost of storing the renters' belongings.
The cost of renting self-storage rental units is not always the same as the cost of buying a home or an apartment unit and purchasing the furnishings and items that are in the rental units. Renters should be sure to check out the cost of storing their own belongings in the storage units, because many units charge by the day and not the month or year in which the rent is due.
There are also many types of self-storage rental units that offer the convenience of renting on a monthly basis so that a renter does not have to leave their home or apartment and make multiple trips to the storage facility in order to store their belongings. In this case the renter makes one payment on the date the property is ready to be occupied and is able to live and enjoy the home and property at the same time. The renter has the advantage of using the space for storage without having to be concerned with the cost of food, gasoline or other costs when the property is not being occupied. Renting a self-storage unit does not have to involve driving to the property to visit the storage facility because it can be done online, over the Internet or through other means.
