Full Service Storage vs. Self Service Storage

Full Service Storage vs. Self Service Storage

Are you thinking about storing something? Whether it's a few boxes or an entire room's worth of furniture and miscellaneous stuff – there are plenty of options available for you. The biggest problem is deciding which solution fits your specific needs.

Let’s look at two storage options: self-service and full-service, to see which is most accessible.

Self Service Storage

Though self-service storage is probably the most used approach, it isn't necessarily the de facto winner. Self-service touts "ease of use" and "affordable storage options" as its biggest draws, but is it that easy? After all, self-service has limitations:

  • You’re responsible for getting your items to and from the space.
  • Access is limited to the selected hours.
  • Frequent management changes can impact pricing.
  • Lack of available units due to popularity may mean paying for more than you need.
  • Air-conditioned or ventilated storage spaces are rarely effectively air-conditioned.

Granted, self-storage tends to be a more affordable option, but it’s up to you to decide if the risk is worth the price of your items.
