Storage Units Charleston, SC.

Charleston, SC is a great place to rent self storage units.

Living in Charleston, SC gives you so many opportunities to see and do all kinds of things. You can live in the suburbs and still get in town when you need to, or you can make your home right in the heart of downtown. There are plenty of options, and that gives you so many ways to enjoy everything that the Charleston area has to offer. Even if you're in a nearby city like Augusta, Myrtle Beach, or Columbia, heading to the Charleston area for some food, fun, and shopping doesn't take long. But what do you do with all the great things you bought there?

Maybe you need some extra storage for them, until you decide where in your house to put them. You might even have to take some of your current things out and store them, so you can add all the beautiful new things to your home. There are many storage areas in the most populated zip codes of 29412, 29407, 29406 and 29403, but that doesn't mean you have to live there to get great self storage options. You can find units in the less populated areas, too, and that can help you if you want a bigger storage space or you need somewhere to store a large vehicle like an RV.

Vehicle Storage Can Help if You Have an HOA

When it comes to the kind of self-storage facility you need, what you're storing matters. For people who have an HOA, or those who just don't have any extra storage room on the outside of their home, vehicle storage may be just the thing. If you can't keep your extra car or truck at home, or you have a boat, ATV, personal watercraft, boat, RV, motorcycle, or anything else that's not being used all the time, you can get a vehicle storage unit to put it in. Some of these units are completely enclosed, and others are designed to be open-air storage. Both can work very well.

Climate Controlled Storage or a Drive Up Unit: Which is Best for You?

A drive up self storage unit is incredibly convenient. You can generally access it any time of the day or night, and with 24-hour access comes the opportunity to get to the things you've stored when you need them, instead of on someone else's schedule. That matters to a lot of people, especially if they work odd hours or otherwise have trouble getting to a storage unit during what would be considered normal business hours. Sometimes, though, you need to store your items in a way that they will have more protection.

If you need to make sure your items stay in a good temperature range, free from extremes and without problems from humidity and dryness, you'll want a climate controlled storage unit. You may not have 24-hour access, but your delicate items, musical instruments, and other things that may otherwise become damaged will be much better protected.

What Price Are Storage Units in Charleston?

The price of a storage unit in Charleston can vary, depending on several factors. Where it's located, the size of it, and whether it's climate-controlled, all matter. You may also pay more for a newer facility, or one that has more security than its competitors. The most important thing to remember about choosing a storage unit is that it's not a good idea to select one solely based on price. There are many other aspects that should also be considered.

Typically, you can expect to pay between $50 and $200 for a storage unit in Charleston. Units in this price range are typically 5' x 10' to 10' x 10'. Of course, there are options for storage lockers that could cost less, and you may pay far more than $200 for a big storage unit that houses an RV or other full-sized vehicle, especially if you're in an area of Charleston with high cost of living.

Find Storage Units in Your City

Where you live within Charleston is going to matter for finding storage units. Some facilities even have wait lists, because they're currently full and have additional people who want to rent a space from them. No matter where in Charleston you live, though, the best way to find storage units in your city is to look online at the available options. Many facilities even allow you to rent online and make your payments that way, so you don't have to do those things in person.

If the facility you're considering doesn't show any units available online, you can give them a call and inquire about the unit.Most of the time they know who will be moving out and which units will be available and when.

Available Storage Units in Charleston

Depending on the size of the unit you need, it may be easy to find an available one in Charleston if you search online. That's because certain sizes are often more popular, and if you're seeking a storage unit in one of those sizes you may need to be placed on a waiting list.

Of course, that only works if you're able to wait for the unit. If you can't wait, and you need it right away, you'll have to choose an available unit of a different size, or look for one at another facility. It's best to plan ahead, so you can get the right size unit when you want and need it.

Climate-Controlled Storage Units in Charleston

For delicate items or belongings that need a little more care, there are climate-controlled storage units. These are becoming very popular in Charleston, since you don't have to worry about the things you put into them getting too hot or cold, and the damage that can cause. Additionally, these units control the humidity levels, so nothing will get too damp or too dry.

While some items don't need this level of care, it's beneficial for most household goods, furniture, clothing, and other miscellaneous things. Before you rent your storage unit, make sure to ask the facility if it's a climate-controlled space. That way you're confident that you're getting what you expect, and you can decide whether it's something you need for whatever you're going to store.

Drive-Up Storage Units in Charleston

One of the most convenient options a facility in Charleston can offer is the drive-up storage unit. This allows you to drive your vehicle right up to the unit's door and transfer items into or out of the unit quickly and efficiently. You won't have to carry anything very far, and that can make it much easier when you have heavy or bulky items to move.

Most facilities offer a number of drive-up units in different sizes, allowing you to pick what works for you and have the space you need. Additionally, a lot of facilities have gated and enclosed spaces to protect the units, so people who don't belong in the facility can't get access to your unit, for increased peace of mind.

Types of Self-Storage Units Available in Charleston

There are several different kinds of self-storage units available, making it much easier for you to find the one that's right for your needs.

Lockers

Lockers are smaller than standard self-storage units, and they're usually for people who only need to store a few things. If you have some sports gear, a few boxes, or other small items, using a locker can be the best choice.

Self-storage

Facilities have large numbers of units in sizes like 5' x 10', 10' x 10', and others. When you need a typical storage unit for some furniture, boxes, and others items at the same time, this is the right choice.

Vehicle storage

From cars and motorcycles to boats and RVs, vehicle storage options can protect larger items. Some of this storage can be just a single parking space, a carport-style unit with an open front, and some can be fully enclosed.

Business storage

If you're running a business, especially if you have extra inventory, you may want a business storage unit. That gives you a place to store your goods, or keep additional supplies.

Student storage

Students often need some storage for their belongings when they go home over the summer. If you have items from your dorm that you'll use when the new year starts, putting them in storage is easier than shipping them.

Self-Storage Unit Amenities in Charleston

In addition to finding the right type and size storage unit, you also want to choose a facility that has the amenities you want.

24-hour security

Having 24-hour security is extremely important when it comes to protecting your items. You need to know that they're safe, and that they'll be there when you come back for them.

Extended hours

If you work long hours, or you aren't going to be able to get to your items on a more standard schedule, having a facility that offers extended hours can be very helpful. Then you can access your belongings anytime you need or want to. Mos facilities in Charleston have extended hours from 6:00 am to 10:00 pm.

Elevator access

Some facilities have more than one story. If you rent from a facility like this, and your unit isn't on the first floor, having elevator access can make all the difference in convenience, and reduce your chance of injury when moving your items, as well.

Indoor units

Not everyone wants drive-up units. That's why facilities also offer indoor units, that can't be accessed by just driving or walking up to the exterior of the building. These can provide additional security and peace of mind.

What Is the Best Size Storage Unit for Me?

The best size storage unit for you is the one that fits all your items without a lot of left-over space. You don't want to pay for a lot of unneeded floor area, but you also don't want to run the risk of damaging your items because they're stuffed into the storage unit and everything is stacked all the way to the ceiling. Finding a good compromise is important.

When you look for a unit in Charleston, the facility can help you understand how much will typically fit into spaces of different sizes or you can check out handy unit size guide. For example, the facility might say that a unit will hold a three-bedroom house, or the contents of one bedroom and some boxes. Having a good idea of the space you need will help you choose a unit that works for your needs, for as long as you need it. This can help you avoid having to move your items twice.

How to Pick the Right Storage Facility in Charleston

Picking the right storage facility in Charleston is important, because you want to be able to get to your items when you need them, but also know that they're safe when you're not around. Look for a facility close to your home or work location, for convenience, and consider the security the facility has. If they don't have a fenced area, cameras, or other security measures, they might not be the right space for your items.

You'll want to make sure there's someone you can contact during normal business hours and if there's an after-hours emergency number to call, and it's important for you to have a convenient way to make payments and ask questions. Additionally, the facility needs to have units that are the right size for your storage requirements, so you can put your items into a unit and get on with your life. Having the right storage facility makes everything easier.
