When looking for storage in Kansas City, it’s important to weigh your options and all their benefits. Whether you are renting a self-storage unit at a static location, loading everything you own into a portable storage container, or looking for specialty climate-controlled storage in Kansas City, we have some tips for you.
Here are 3 tips to consider as you research short or long-term storage in Kansas City:
- Do your research and understand how security works at the storage locations you are comparing. Most self-storage facilities have a gated entrance as well as cameras and other security systems in place. You can also find out if the facility has an onsite manager to ensure the security of the premises.
- Understand the pros and cons to storing your stuff in a portable storage container like PODS or 1800PackRat. Realize that these portable containers will be transported sometimes multiple times before you see them again in your driveway when you’re ready to unload. This is why it is so important to properly strap, secure, and protect everything inside even more than in a moving truck. We share some great tips about packing and loading a portable storage here.
- Do a cost comparison of climate-controlled storage and basic storage. Anything that would be affected by heat, cold, or moisture should be placed in climate-controlled storage. So decide whether you really need it for your stored belongings. Will it only be stored for a short amount of time? Do you have items that would be affected by drastic temperatures? If you have wood furniture, electronics, or valuable artwork or paintings, climate-controlled storage may be a great option in case temperatures soar, especially in a Kansas City summer.
