Mini Storage—Choose Between Single-Story Access And Multi-Level Access

A mini storage unit is a small or moderate-sized storage space that is often found in single-story storage facilities and multi-level facilities. Storing yard decor and recreational equipment at a facility prevents theft or damage that is associated with leaving your belongings out in the open.

Single-Story Access

A single-story storage building that features mini units will consist of units that are lined up alongside one another and separated by concrete, metal, brickwork, or another construction material. Single-story access is suited for the storage of heavy items or items that will not need to remain in storage for long. A consumer who is elderly or handicapped may appreciate the ease of access that a single-story facility provides them with.

Check over the yard items that you need to place in storage. Will you have any difficulties securing them to a handcart or climbing stairs or using an elevator to access a mini storage unit that is located on one of the upper floors of a multi-floor facility? If you foresee any issues with placing your belongings in a unit that comprises a higher level in a building, search for available mini-storage units at facilities that feature single-story storage buildings. 

Multi-Level Access

A multi-story access storage facility may feature floor room storage, deluxe storage units, and a series of standard and mini storage units. The location of the units may be based on the size of a particular unit and the features that it offers. Some storage facilities that are deemed multi-storage facilities are set up like a warehouse. They may have a large entryway and interior parking. A large facility may offer a cargo lift, access to handcarts, and access to shipping supplies.

A facility that only features a couple of stories may have mini units located upstairs and larger units located downstairs. A smaller facility may require patrons to use a staircase to access the units that are on the upper level.

If the yard decor and recreational equipment are fairly easy to pack into cartons, you may not mind acquiring a mini storage unit that is located on an upper level. This is especially true if you locate a unit that is within a facility that contains an elevator. An upper-level unit will be set up similarly to a mini-unit that is located within a single-story storage facility.

About Me

storing your things safely

When choosing a storage facility, you have several options to consider, but you really only have two types to choose from. Do you need a climate-controlled storage unit or can your stored items hold up well without the climate-controlled setting? The answer to this question depends on what you are storing, how long you plan to store it and the method in which you pack up the things going into the storage unit. I created this blog to help other storage users find the best method of storing the things that they just don't have room to keep in their homes.
