How Storage Services Work

If you’ve never used a storage facility before, you may have questions like “how much do storage services cost?” or “what size should I rent?” Fret not, for we have all the answers for you!

As a leading secure storage facilities provider in Warwickshire and Coventry, we offer a lot of resources to help you choose the right solution based on your requirements and budget. In this guide, we help you understand how storage services work.

What is a Storage Facility?

A storage facility offers a clean and secure space where you can store your belongings as long as you need to. Most storage facilities including United Movers offer storage services on a month-to-month basis. This means you only pay for the time you need.

When you want to de-clutter your home or need additional space when moving home, storage services offer a viable solution.

How Self Storage Works

Choose a storage service – Most storage services work pretty much the same way. You sign a contract and rent a storage unit for a given time period. Here at United Movers, we offer a highly secure and safe facility for your peace of mind.

Determine the size you need – The number one mistake people make is choosing the wrong size unit. If you rent a storage facility that’s too large, you are losing money. However, if you choose a unit that’s too small for your needs, you are creating more work for yourself.

Rent online or in person – Decide whether you’ll rent storage space in person or online. You will save time when you rent online. However, you may want to inspect the storage unit in person if it’s your first time renting. No matter what you decide, we are happy to assist you.

Sign your agreement – Rental agreement is at the core of a storage service. Your rental agreement will cover all the terms of the lease and this agreement will outline what’s expected of you as the renter. Be sure to review the terms and conditions before you sign the dotted line. A rental agreement will typically cover a description of the unit you’re renting, tenant responsibilities, length of the lease, non-payment terms and cancellation terms.

Make initial payment – Once the lease has been signed, you must pay the first month’s rent. Future monthly rent can be paid online.

Access the unit – You are all set to gain access to your rental storage unit and move in. With our online storage service, you will receive a personalised key code to access your unit. You will receive a digital map so you can easily locate your unit. The unit would be closed with a plastic seal. To gain access, break the seal and enter.
