What types of storage services are available? .:

You have two options: self-storage and pick up and delivery storage.

1) Self-storage

Self-storage (sometimes called Mini-storage) works best for items that you are likely to retrieve, but don't have available space at home. A mini-storage unit is convenient and accessible, and you provide your own lock and key for added security. Individual units, in a variety of sizes and shapes, are available to fit your needs. You rent a unit on a monthly basis under an "occupancy agreement." Some companies may also bill you for electricity. You may move your items into the unit yourself, or if you have a couple of heavier items, you can request a pickup. Many facilities will provide free pickup if you agree to keep your items in the unit for a certain length of time. In these cases, when the driver arrives with the truck, it will be your responsibility to load your items. The driver will accept no liability for your items.

Request a reservation with a Self-Storage facility.

How to select your self-storage unit

Before you place your items into a storage space, it is imperative that you inspect the facilities. Your unit should have sufficient amount of space for all of your items. Create an inventory of all of the items that you wish to place into storage, so that if you don't know which size unit to select, you'll have something to show to a facility worker. You can use the Weight and Volume Calculator to create this permanent inventory sheet, calculate the approximate size of the storage unit you need, and even email the list to a facility or company. The storage unit should be clean, and above all, secure. Self-storage facilities offer many types of security features, ranging from alarms, motion detectors, video surveillance, nightly inspections, and guards on duty. You will have to provide your own lock and key, so that only you and those you allow will have access to the unit.

Insurance for Your Storage Items

You maintain complete responsiblity for the items that you place inside your storage unit. The storage facility bears no responsibility for your items. As such, Mover MAX recommends that you seek additional insurance from the facility itself. Just inquire with the company's representative. Some home owner's and renter's policies cover theft off premisis, and would cover what is in storage. To find out if this applies to you, call your home owners or renter's insurance provider. Take a complete inventory and keep it current. Mover MAX recomends avoiding storing valuables and antiques.

2) Pickup & Delivery Services

Some self-storage companies will deliver a container (or containers) to your home. You will need to determine the number of containers. To help decide, we recommend creating an inventory of all of the items that you wish to place into storage. You can use the Mover MAX Weight and Volume Calculator to create this permanent inventory sheet, and calculate the approximate size of the storage unit you need. If you are still uncertain, you can show this list to a facility worker (or even email the list to a facility or company).

The driver will provide you with instructions on how you load your items and lock your container. You'll provide your own lock and key and have as much time as you need to load your items into the container. When you're finished, you call the facility for a pickup, they 'll then transport your filled container to their facility. When you wish to retrieve your items, you have the option of going to the facilities or having the container delivered to you. If you choose to goto the facility, you'll need to call several hours in advance.
