What to Look for In a Florida Long-Term Storage Service

Storage tips

A lot of movers choose to use long-term storage facilities when they simply have too much stuff in their current home. If the house you’re moving to is smaller than your previous home, or you simply don’t want as much clutter, a storage facility offers spacious room for the excess. Of course, choosing the right storage facility is vital – especially in Florida. With the heat and ever-changing weather, it’s important to find a long-term facility that can meet your safety and security needs adequately. Otherwise, you may never feel that your goods are safe.

Location, Location, Location

Just like with real estate, location is vital for a storage facility. You don’t want to waste gas driving forty miles across the city to pull a few items out and then drive home. Ideally, you’ll want a facility close to where you’re located. The closer the facility, the more convenient it is to visit.

It’s important not to jump the gun. Do not simply rent the first storage facility you happen across. Do a bit of research, read reviews, and, if possible, examine the service for yourself.


Remember, you’re putting your goods in the hands of a business for storage and security. If the service provider does not offer adequate insurance coverage, take your business elsewhere. Numerous possibilities could result in the loss of your prized possessions, furniture, or collections – weather, robbery, critters, etc.

Furthermore, you’ll want a service that offers security measures, including cameras, guards, or otherwise. On top of insurance, these steps should put your mind at ease.
