Drive-up Self Storage

Why Drive-Up Self Storage?

If you’re wondering what a drive-up storage unit is or what its benefits are compared to other types of storage units, it’s important to know how this type of storage is the most popular one. Storage units with drive-up access are some of the most beneficial ones to rent if you have large or bulky items that need to be stored safely and securely. With this type of service, renters can easily pull their vehicles right up to the door of their storage unit and unload or load items without having to walk long distances carrying heavy or bulky items.

The most underrated Type of Self Storage

Most people using a storage facility that had drive-up access have never really thought much about it.

It is often assumed that all self-storage facilities have convenient features like drive-up access and secure units, but they don’t! Drive-up access is only available at some private-label facilities. It can be useful for storing large or heavy items such as equipment and furniture, but it isn’t required for most people who are looking for short-term storage space in the garage or basement of their home. If you have items too large for your house, then it may be worthwhile considering whether this feature would work well for you before renting a unit at any given location.

Benefits of Drive-Up Self Storage

1. Convenience

Drive-up access means that renters can easily pull their vehicles right up to the door of their storage unit and unload or load items without having to walk long distances carrying heavy or bulky items. You can do this because there is no need for stairs, ramps, or elevators. Drive-up storage units are also convenient for renters who don’t want to carry boxes up the stairs—they just drive them right into their unit!

2. Inexpensive

Drive-up storage units are an ideal solution for those who don’t have or don’t want to spend a lot of money on their storage needs. In almost all storage facilities across the country, drive-up storage units are the most cost-effective deal you will find. Compared to indoor storage units or climate-controlled ones you will see a huge price drop with drive up storage units which is also surprising since they are most of the time way bigger than indoor ones and as previously mentioned the most convenient ones.

3. Larger Storage Space

It is common to find that drive-up storage units are the most spacious out of all storage types. This happens due to the fact that indoor and climate-controlled units are built to be closely packed in order to fit as many possible units inside the storage center. This is the reason most indoor units have shorter ceilings and seem smaller. The good news is that drive-ups have no such limitations. On the contrary, they are built to be larger, more convenient, and cheaper.

4. Can work as vehicle storage

This benefit of drive-up storage is mostly for people or families that own more cars or generally vehicles than they use in their daily life. Usually, this happens with cars or motorbikes where people might be driving them exclusively during summer months and use another vehicle during winter. With how large drive-up storage units can be, most cars will fit in there staying protected from extreme weather conditions at a very low cost.

How to Use your Drive-Up Storage Unit Optimally

Drive-up storage units are great if you have large or bulky items to store. These units can be used for storing items that are very heavy, such as furniture, appliances and even construction materials. The drive-up access also makes it easy for the owner of the property to get into their belongings when needed due to the absence of stairs or elevators. Items that are very heavy will be placed closest to the door for easy access. Drive-up storage units can be handy if you have such items that are hard to move around but still need protection from the elements and weather conditions outside of your home.

If you own a vehicle, drive-up access is a great option for storing your items. This type of storage unit can be very convenient when it comes time to retrieve your items from your storage unit. This is the reason why people who are moving and only need storage for a month decided to buy drive-up storage since they will load and unload easily and quickly.
