Finding the Best Facility for Short-Term Storage

There are many reasons why you might be seeking out short-term storage to protect and store your belongings, but how do you choose the best option for you and your situation?

Short-term storage is perfect for packing the things that you own (from appliances to personal effects, rare automobiles, and more) for three months or less, but there are a few things that you need to consider in order to make the process of selecting, packing, transporting, storing and retrieving the treasures that you need to be aware of in order to keep the process as stress and damage-free as possible.

The Best Short-Term Storage Facility

There are many self-storage options available in the Treasure Valley, so how do you know which one is right for you? Here are five things to look for as you hunt for a short-term storage facility.

#1 Is Close to You

Distance may not seem like that much of a hassle when you are making multiple truck-loads across town, especially in inclement or hot weather! Do yourself (and your moving crew!) a favor and select a storage unit location that is either close to your final destination, or is at least easy to get to. For example, we’re located at 5593 N Eagle Road, just a 20-minute drive from downtown Boise, ID. Our facility is the best in the area, easily accessible to residents and businesses throughout Meridian, Eagle, Star, Garden City, and several other surrounding areas. and if you are moving into one of the many new subdivisions going up along Chinden in Meridian, ID, our location may make this a life-saver and a time saver!

#2 Has Acceptable Access Times

“It’s my stuff, and I want it now!” We get it, nothing can be more frustrating than not being able to get access to your things when you find that you’ve packed away that one thing that you need, something was packed by mistake, or you simply need it for any reason. Choose a self-storage option that provides easy access, that isn’t just convenient but reliable. Our facility is accessible 24/7, year-round via a code-controlled gate. You simply enter your code, and you’re in! Our units also feature drive-up access for easy loading and unloading.

#3 Features the Right Storage Unit Size and Features

What size storage unit do you need, and what kind of features do you require? The answer is, it depends on what you’re storing, for how long, and when! You may find that you may need a small unit, several, a large one, or a climate-controlled unit for those items that don’t tolerate temperature extremes like electronics, heirlooms, and more. We offer units that range in size from 5’X5’ to 12’X25’ and even 10’X50’! Whether you are looking for 25ft or 500ft we have you covered, and we can help you select the right size unit for anything you need to be stored, whether it’s a little or a lot!

#4 Doesn't Overlook Security

We’ve all heard horror stories about items being stolen out of storage facilities, so selecting a storage facility that takes security seriously should be an important part of your decision. We offer 24/7 video surveillance at our fenced and gated facility, and access is only allowed via a key code at the entrance to keep you and your belongings safe at all times.
