Here’s what you should know before using the self-storage services

The self-storageservices have made storing excessive items extremely easy and offers lots of benefits to the users. But it does have some guidelines or rules that need to be followed for proper storage of your items. 

For the users who have never used the service, this is entirely a new concept so naturally this will lead to some questions. So let us discuss the things you should know before using the self storage service in an efficient way.

Shelf life
The main objective of the service was to tackle the problem of storage of excessive items. This service is ideal for users who could not fit their furniture set in their apartment or want to store things that are unwanted at that particular time. Also people with different businesses use the service for storing goods that could be retrieved at a time ideal for their profit.

However, if you are looking to store items like vegetables or fruits, fish, dairy products etc that have an alarming shelf life then this service won’t do you any good. Since the services are usually availed for storage of items for 2-3 months, items with low shelf life should not be stored here.

Toxic Chemicals
The self storage service is used by different types of users with specific needs, which has made the service providers more efficient in terms of user experience. However if you are looking to store chemicals that could be toxic to your other stored goods or the storage itself then you should look for an alternative as this would not prove to be a good storage practice. 

You could go for specific facilities that specialize in storing chemicals.

The storage facility is ideal for storing goods like furniture, luggage or inventory items that could be used later at convenience. But if you are planning to store your valuables like cash, jewelry or any other financially important items then do not opt for the self storage service. 
Although the storage itself is secure it is not meant for your immediate valuables. So the optimum place would be your bank.

Arms and Ammunitions
For possessing a gun you need license and some businesses that deals with ammunitions do follow the guidelines laid by the government. If you own a business deals with arms and ammunitions then the self storage service is not for you. As mentioned before, the service is for general items and guns definitely do not come under the general category.
And as for explosives, NOT storing them in the self storage facility  would be a huge favour to everyone involved.

So if you are looking to use the self-storage service for items other than the ones mentioned above, then go ahead and store away.
