Welcome to the Charleston, SC self storage directory page on Storage.com! Never visited the site before? Here’s a quick rundown! Storage.com is your one-stop shop for all things storage in Charleston and surrounding areas. If you’ve ever had to search for a storage unit before, you know it can be a total hassle. Driving around to several facilities just to find information about prices and special features can take up a lot of your valuable time. Let Storage.com help you put all of that aimless wandering behind. Here, you can find, compare, and rent storage with just the click of your mouse!
Finding the Best Storage Location
While you can search for storage by just entering “Charleston,” we recommend that you narrow your search with a zip code to find the most convenient Charleston storage facilities for your needs. Whether you want something close to home or your office, Storage.com makes it easy for you to find facilities.
Be aware, however, that location affects the price of storage rent more than you might think. The better the location, the more expensive it is. If price is an issue for you, and you don’t mind driving a little out of the way, a storage unit that’s on the outskirts of town may be a better option.
Unit Size and Access
Not sure what size Charleston storage unit you might need? Our interactive size guide can help you there. Whether you need a smaller unit to get some of the useless clutter out of your home or a larger unit to store all of your belongings while you’re between homes during a move, Storage.com’s helpful illustrations of each unit’s holding capacity can help you determine what works best for you.
When it comes to accessing your unit, you’ll also want to look into ground-level vs. upper-level storage, as well as the type of access hours the facility offers. When storing heavy items, it’s better to get a ground-level unit with drive-up access so you won’t have to carry couches or heavy appliances up flights of stairs. Upper-level storage units have their advantages, too, though—namely security and pricing.
As for access hours, most storage renters are fine with standard business hours, but for those who keep non-traditional hours, a facility with extended or 24-hour access will be best for getting to your things.
Using Storage for Short-Term Needs
Month-to-month storage contracts aren’t for everyone. But for the people who only need storage temporarily, they can be a blessing. If you’re moving or remodeling, temporary storage is a great way to get things out of your home for a short period of time without getting stuck in a long-term agreement.
But short-term storage is mainly used by college students at College of Charleston, The Citadel, or Charleston Southern University. When summer break commences, most students don’t want to lug their dorm belongings home for three months just to bring it all back in the fall. That’s where Charleston mini storage comes in. Then, all students have to do is rent a unit near campus, drop their stuff off on their way home, and pick everything up on their way back to school.
When it comes to storing valuable belongings, many facilities offer great security options, such as individually-alarmed units, video surveillance, gated access, on-site management, indoor units, and more. While these features do cost more, you know your items are well protected, which is a peace of mind worth having.
