If you simply have too much stuff at home and want to enjoy more space, but you do not want to sell or dispose of your belongings, self storage is a great option for you. You can basically rent space to deposit whatever it is that you do not need to have in your house or appartment.
It also comes in handy when you want to relocate to another place and need a temporary storage space. Let's face it, sometimes the just right place for you to live might become available a bit too late, or you might want to renovate your new house or appartment first before moving in, but already have to move out of your own home.
There are a couple of things that you should consider when choosing your self-storage space. First of all: how safe is it?
You definitely do not want to end up loosing your belongings or becoming a victim of theft. Whatever company you chose, be sure to inquire about whether or not they have an insurance police in place that covers damages, theft and loss.
It is worth being a bit nosy here. For example, they might say that "Yes, your items are insured against damages", but you might later find out that certain kinds of damages are excempted from this (e.g. fire).
You also want to make sure that it is not too far away from where you are now - or will be next. Just because you do not need to have the items in your house does not mean that it doesn't matter where they are. As a general rule, the closer the self storage the better it is for you.
It's a fact that self storage in Minneapolis is not the cheapest, and that is the next consideration you want to take into account. If it is just for a month, then a couple of bucks more will not matter so much, but if you plan on storing your belongings there for a long period of time, a couple of bucks a month can ad up to quiet a substancial sum over the years.
