Stop N Stor was proud to be a sponsor for the 5th Annual Liberty County Chamber of Commerce Golf Classic. The event took place on Friday, April 22, 2011 at the Cherokee Rose Country Club. Twenty four teams participated in the tournament to raise awareness of the Liberty County Chamber of Commerce. The Chamber of Commerce is committed to enhancing the local business climate and maintaining a high quality of life in Liberty County.
Stop N Stor’s very own Alan Dasher and Catherine Cooper participated in this year’s Golf Classic. There were many awards handed out for lowest score (going to Coastal Pawn) to the longest putt (won by Stop N Stor’s Alan Dasher!). It was a great day for golf! Thanks to everyone who sponsored and volunteered for the event! See more photos of the event here. Stop N Stor is very proud to be a part of the Liberty County community! We look forward to attending future events.
So, you are in need of a self-storage unit. What information do you need to make sure that you are choosing the right self-storage facility for you? What are the top 5 points that you need to consider when choosing the right self-storage establishment for you?
1) Location, location, location
This also ties in with our next tip, which is your storage needs. Location for your self-storage facility will vary based on why you need to get a self-storage unit. If you are a business and you need the items that you are storing more often, then you would look for a facility closer to your business. If you are storing items long-term, then you might not need a storage unit close by.
2) Determine your need
If you are a business who is looking for a storage unit, your needs will be different from a person that is looking to store personal belongings. Do you need a climate or non-climate controlled unit? How long will you need to have your items stored? All of these needs will factor into the unit size that you will need. Most storage facilities offer a variety of sizes. Stop N Stor offers a range of sizes from regular closet size (5’x5’) to standard 2 car garage size.
3) How does the unit look
The interior and exterior of the storage units are key in helping you make your decision on which self-storage company to use. Is the unit clean and well-lit? Is the unit dry and well ventilated? You do not want your personal belongs to get damaged from a unit that is moldy and wet!
Security is an important factor in choosing a self-storage until. You want your business or personal goods to be protected. Is the facility gated with 24 hour access? Does the establishment have on-site managers? Stop N Stor uses a state-of-the art surveillance system that uses 30 cameras to cover the units with DVR backup.
5) The contract
Reading the contract for the self-storage unit is highly important to find out the terms of renting the unit. The needs and the length of time that you will rent the self-storage unit will determine the monthly cost. Remember to read the small print! This is highly important to find out if there are fees for moving out of the unit, what your deposit will be or if there are late fees.
Gathering all of this information is key to making sure that you rent the right storage unit for your needs. You can find more great storage hints here.
