Using a storage unit is one way to de-clutter your home. Before you look at your options, decide how much space you need in your storage unit. Also determine how much you are willing to spend on a unit. Most storage companies offer units in a wide variety of sizes and prices. Storage unit prices vary from company to company, so it is important to know how to find the best deal on a unit.
Things You'll Need
- Internet connection
Visit the websites of the storage companies near you. Companies often post storage unit coupons and promotions.
Call or walk in to few storage companies in your area. Inquire as to what the best deal is for the amount of space you need. Many storage unit companies run special promotions such as a free month of storage or discounted monthly rates. Also ask about any discounts, such as for AAA members or senior citizens.
Consider downsizing the amount of storage you need, since that will then lower the price you pay. A few good ways to downsize include holding yard sales and donating items to local thrift stores. Also be sure to carefully stack the items in your storage unit to maximize every inch of space.
