One of the most useful storage facilities that you can rent from is an outdoor self-storage facility, mostly because these facilities can offer a level of convenience and utility that indoor facilities cannot compete with. The primary difference between indoor and outdoor facilities is that outdoor facilities will have a number of small buildings spread across the lot that you can simply drive up to while indoor facilities have all of their units in a single large building. Listed below are two reasons to rent from an outdoor storage facility.
One of the biggest reasons to consider a unit from an outdoor facility is that it is the most convenient of the storage options available to you. Since these units will be located in small buildings that you can drive up to, you will be able to load and unload your items to and from your vehicle directly.
This makes picking up and dropping off items much easier and less time-consuming. When you rent from an indoor storage facility, you are unable to drive directly up to the entrance to your unit, you will have to carry your items through the building to get to your unit. While the indoor facilities will offer handcarts and other equipment to make transporting your property easier, it is still more work that simply moving items a few feet between your unit and vehicle.
Another reason to consider an outdoor storage facility is that it can be much more flexible than an indoor storage facility. One reason for this is that you will be able to access your property at any time that you like with an outdoor facility, as long as you have the key to your unit and the proper access code to get through the facility's security gate. With an indoor facility, you will often have to work with the facility's schedule as they will often restrict access to the building when they close for the day, which can make it very frustrating if you want to pick up items in the evening or early in the morning.
Another aspect of an outdoor facility that makes it quite flexible is the size of the units that are available. Due to the fact that the units are located on a large lot of land, you can usually find very large units available to rent that can actually function as a secondary garage as they will be large enough to fit normal vehicles and even RVs. In addition, these facilities will also be able to offer a range of smaller units, from ones that are about as large as an average closet to ones that can accommodate items from one or more rooms of your home.
