Storing your electronics
Do you have a lot of electronics you don’t use but are not quite ready to part with? Self storage might be the answer.
Lots of consumers these days are on electronics overload. With the need to “upgrade” your phone every year or two and the desire to have the latest and greatest tablet, has left the consumer with a lot of excess electronics.
This constant necessity to upgrade bombardment left you (the consumer) with one thing: a lot of electronics you may not use. Storing these items could be taking up valuable space with in the walls of your home or garage.
You also could be storing them incorrectly. Here are a couple of tips you may want to consider about storing electronics:
- You will want a storage unit that has the option for climate controlled units. This is crucial so your electronics will continue to work when you take them out of store.
- You will also want to be aware of moisture control. Try and avoid underground storage units.

Owning to Renting
If you are going from owning to renting, self storage can be the answer.
Most of the time, when you are going from owning a large house to renting an apartment or smaller house, you can run out of room for a lot of items you previously could display.
Self Storage can be one of the best temporary fixes you have for keeping your items safe. Rather then leaving all of your valuable belongings in your mother’s garage, wouldn’t you have a calmer sense of mind knowing that your items are safe under 24/7 security?
It is also important to consider climate controlled storage for those items that are temperature sensitive, such as electronics and musical instruments. These types of items need to stay in climate that is not 20 below zero or exceeding 100 degrees.
Next time you find yourself going from owning to renting, consider self storage.
Do I need to insure my belongings?
Have you ever wondered if you were completely liable for you belongings at a storage facility. You are (for the most part) always liable for you belonging at any storage facility. However, your homeowners or renters policy may cover your belongings.
Even though self storage facilities have increased their security measures throughout the years, it may not be enough to “totally” insurance you sense of well-being. Some facilities (such as B&C Storage) have 24/7 camera surveillance and some have even gone as far as giving their “tenants” security key codes that only allow access to those with the code.
With that said, I would recommend contacting your local insurance agent to verify if if your belongings in storage are covered under your policy or not.
Happy Storage everyone!
