What should you pay attention to when choosing a provider? 

You need to take certain measures to ensure that the storage of furniture and you’re other belongings runs smoothly. In order to store furniture and household goods sensibly, you need to consider some things and evaluate a storage unit:

  •  Room size: Think about how much space do you need.  In general, it should be about one-tenth of the living space. Ask the company to advise you. 
  • Cleanliness and room climate: If you have the opportunity then visit the warehouse before renting. Firstly look if there is a mold to be seen. Then pay attention to temperature and humidity. The room climate should be neither too hot nor too cold. 
  • Security: Ask the provider about locks and access controls. A privacy screen should also protect your private items from prying eyes. 
  • Accessibility: Check if you can easily reach the self-storage room. Admission 7 days a week between 6 and 22 o’clock is common for larger companies. Check also are there parking spaces in front of the building. 
  • Rental period and termination: Find out about a possible minimum term of the contract. Many providers offer long-term tenants price advantages. Decide for yourself whether you want to remain more flexible or pay less.

Also, find out from the company what you are allowed to store besides furniture and whatnot. Many companies list these items on their website. There are several options for you to pick:

Storing furniture in individual containers

This option allows you to temporarily store furniture in individual containers. These usually comprise a quantity of up to 40 cubic meters and can be rented flexibly in the required number. All individual containers are then stored by the supplier in a large warehouse. In the case of good suppliers, this is air-conditioned, protected against moisture, and alarm-secured. You will receive your own key for your containers. The access is also strictly controlled. More and more removal companies offer such a service either independently or in cooperation.

Self-Storage and storage rooms

Another possibility is the rental of storage rooms. Such offers can be found under the names self-storage, rental storage or rental box.
