Whether you're in the middle of a move, or just don't have enough room in your home for all of your belongings, renting a storage unit from a local San Diego storage company might be just the answer. That said, avoid simply selecting the first storage company that you come across. San Diego offers numerous storage companies to choose from – with many notable differences between them. There are many important things to think about when choosing storage for your personal belongings. Consider the following things to keep in mind before choosing the right storage option for you.

1. Safety
When choosing self storage in San Diego it is important to fully understand the security of the storage you choose. You need to ensure that all of your personal belongings will be safe and secured and that you feel 100% comfortable with how that will be done. Big Box storage ensures that your possessions will be safely stored. The company offers video surveillance within (and outside of) their facilities, motion sensor alarms, perimeter alarms, and on-site staffing.

2. Budget
When choosing a storage company in San Diego, it is important for most people to follow a strict budget since there is a wide range in costs between the different San Diego self storage options. Storage units will differ in price depending on the size as well as the length of time you will be renting for. You should also be aware of any deals of specials that might be currently available. For example, Big Box Storage is now offering an instant credit of $50 for their blog readers. To obtain the discount, simply refer to promo code BL50 when renting your storage unit.

3. Size
Get a sense of how many household items you will need storage for, then you will be able to determine the height, width, and depth of the storage space you will need. Storage units come in a wide variety of sizes. Big Box Storage of San Diego simplifies the process and removes much of the guess-work often involved. The company offers one size which is 8’ x 5’ x 7’ (L x W x H) and then provides the storage renter with the ability to rent as many “Big Boxes” as they need.  Generally each one will hold the contents of up to one and a half average-sized rooms.

4. Location
It is important to make sure the storage options you are looking into are in a good location, as well as convenient. Consider opting for a portable storage company, such as Big Box Storage, to obtain the most convenience. They’ll save you the time involved with having to transport your stored goods to the storage facility. Instead, they’ll deliver the unit right to your San Diego home (or business). You can then take as much time as you need to pack up your stored goods and load them into the unit. Whenever you finish, they’ll return to retrieve the full storage unit and transport it into their San Diego facilities.
