In most popular cities around the world, there is often a shortage of houses to rent, due to the continually growing number of people moving into the city. As a result, many people are being forced to turn to apartments for accommodation.
While many of us may prefer houses and rentals that offer excellent space, unfortunately, this is not always an option.
Thousands of people are finding that apartment accommodation just doesn’t provide the space for all of their belongings. As a result, self storage units have become extremely popular. A large number of apartments are quite small as a result of their design and purpose.
Self storage units are purpose-built facilities where renters lease a room, container, garage to fit their belongings that they want to store. These facilities are usually high tech 24-hour access so that tenants can come and go as they please but also access their belongings when it suits them.
For many people moving to a large city, having to acquire a self storage Corpus Christi can make life much easier. As an employee of facilities, I’ve noticed a significant increase in demand for self storage units among residents living in apartment styled accommodation. They are hugely convenient in that they allow more and more people to move into apartments, despite the fact that they may have excess personal belongings.
Because these facilities are generally spread throughout a city, people find them to be a very convenient form of storage. Best of all, they are also very cost-effective and secure. How much you’ll pay for a self storage unit will depend on how much space you require.
This is measured in cubic metres. To hire a 9 cubic meter storage unit for example, you are likely to pay around $90 per month (NZD). This size unit would be the equivalent to that of a small bedroom full of belongings. For a 54 cubic metre store unit, you could pay around $300 per month (NZD). The size of this would be equivalent to that of a single garage. This would be ideal for a lounge suite, dining table and chairs or even a car.
Because of the extent of competition among companies offering self storage, the quality of service and facilities is of a premium level. There are many storage providers that offer high levels of security in the form of high security fences and numerous onsite security surveillance cameras. If your belongings are of significant value to you, you should have no problems finding the right storage units to suit.
