Rock Storage Sheffield Providing You With a Quick and Simple Self-Storage Checklist
Before you decide to move your valuables, or furniture into a self-storage solution, you’ll have plenty of important things to think about. In order to ensure that you don’t get lost along the way to a successful storage experience, Rock Storage Sheffield have put together this quick and simple checklist that might be able to help.
Have you made a list of everything you’re storing, so you can ensure that nothing goes missing over time? Rock Storage Sheffield will always provide you with an inventory list when you place your things into one of our storage containers but have you made a list of what goes inside any of your sealed boxes.
Are you sure that all of the items you want to be in storage are actually needed? If not think about friends or family that may make use of these items, or if not then charitable organizations can surely sell them. Also, make sure that you haven’t stored anything you’re going to need in the case of an emergency.
Rock Storage Sheffield also provide insurance Cover
Have you insured all of your belongings at their replacement value while in storage? Remember that home insurance doesn’t cover items in storage. Here at Rock Storage Sheffield, we provide insurance for the contents of each of our containers up to £1,000. Additional insurance can be acquired for as little as 50p per extra £1,000 of value.
Direct Debit Payments
Have you set up a standing order for the direct debit payments expected during your self-storage rental period? Or have you got another form of payment agreed? Call us here at Rock Storage Solutions to learn about all our accepted payment methods/
Have you paid your security deposit in full? Most self-storage solutions will require a certain form of payment – such as cheque, credit card, or cash. However, no such charge is required here at Rock Storage Sheffield.
If your items are stored in an outdoor storage container, the type of rusty old cargo transport container that some fly by night storage firms rent out as secure self-storage, usually positioned on some gravel covered car park, exposed by the elements, then you need to make sure it is secured by a padlock or some other form of protection. Have you checked the strength of that padlock recently? We have a fully secure, dry indoor storage here at Rock Storage Sheffield, with prices starting at just £10 a week.
