Four Ways to Save Money When Signing Up for a Self-Storage Unit

If the only thing keeping you from renting a self-storage unit is the idea that it will cost too much, then we have two pieces of good news for you. First, the cost is not as much as you think. Second, you can follow these four tips to pay as little as possible. Feel free to contact Spaceman Storage at 562-696-3924 if you have any questions.

  1. Make Sure You’re Not Using a Larger Unit Than You Need
  2. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is to rent a much larger unit than is needed. Due to how common this mistake is, we offer a handy tool that helps you calculate how much storage you need. Make the most of your unit by stacking boxes all the way to the ceiling, storing things inside furniture, etc. It is likely no surprise that the smaller the unit is, the more affordable it is, so choose the smallest option that will work for your needs.
  3. Ask about Any Special Offers
  4. While we can’t speak for other storage unit companies, at Spaceman Storage we often have a special offer going on. It may save you money on a monthly unit, allow you to get a larger unit for the price of a smaller one, or provide other financial incentives. You can always see our latest special offers on our website or give us a call and ask.
  5. Rent a Storage Unit at the Right Time
  6. If you are planning to rent a unit in an area that has very seasonal rental seasons – such as an area where many snowbirds come and go for the winter, or near a university, then there may be months out of the year during which storage companies are begging for new clients. If you time your rental right, you may end up getting an added discount.
  7. Pay for Your Rental Unit on Time and as Agreed
  8. One of the best ways to ensure that you do not pay a penny more than you have to is to assure that you are paying for your unit on the date you are supposed to. If you wait, or if you pay it late, you could face a late fee. This unnecessarily raises the price you will pay overall. If possible, you may consider paying six months or a year in advance, which often comes with a discount.
