Depending on the circumstances, this may not actually be the case, particularly if you are putting the furnishings from several rooms in storage. Below we cover the pros and cons of self- and full-storage.
What are the benefits of choosing full-service storage?
In most situations, the facility is liable for your belongings and furnishings, which are professionally loaded into the storage facility and often protected using shrink-wrapping and pads. Additionally, this can be the least costly way to go if you have substantial furnishings that will go into storage, and you can rely on security as only authorized personnel are allowed in the storage facility.
Drawbacks of full-service storage include limited access, which can be problematic if you need frequent access at any/all hours of the day.
Benefits and drawbacks of self-service storage
