What Is A Private Storage Unit?

private storage

Private storage, often known as “full-service” storage, occurs when a moving company picks up the belongings and transports them to the storage facility. The products are taken care of, wrapped, carefully packaged, and locked into distinct containers. These private containers are kept safe in a temperature-controlled and locked storage. If consumers want to see their items, they must do so by appointment and usually pay a nominal access fee.

Private Storage by Dose is storage that only the people who work at Dose storage service have access to. The containers or units are inventoried. This is the type of equipment we have at our business. Private storage is preferable because there is inventory and you know which unit contains what. This is ideal for moving, especially if you have too many belongings for your new home and plan to upgrade shortly.

Other Storage Solutions – Public or Self Storage

Public Storage:  If you require frequent access to your belongings, public storage may be the best option. Most of these lack locks and fences, instead of relying solely on your own lock to open. They can be accessible at any time of day or night. When using private storage, you must give them 48 hours’ notice that you will be visiting. There may be a cost to access the storage unit but with public storage, you can access as much as you would like.

Self-storage is also known as do-it-yourself storage and is an example of public storage. With no assistance from the storage provider, the customer is responsible for carrying and unloading their things at the storage facility. The customer has the facility’s key and can access their things during the facility’s operating hours. Self-storage is typically more expensive than private storage.

The Benefits of Private Storage vs. Self Storage

There are benefits from private storage but there are times with self-storage will make sense as well. Let’s take a look at what to expect:

  • Less expensive is private storage.
  • Pick-up and delivery services are provided by private storage.
  • Self-storage units are available without an appointment.
  • Private storage is professionally packed, which allows more items to fit in less space than do-it-yourself self-storage containers.
