Whether you’re a homeowner who doesn’t want to part with treasured belongings or an office manager running out of floor space, finding a storage solution that meets your needs is imperative.

Below, we discuss how to choose the right storage option:

Size and Scalability

The first step in finding a storage solution is to take stock of what you want to store. This step includes decluttering and disposing of unused items, which ensures you aren’t paying for warehouse or unit space you don’t need.

Furthermore, if you intend to change your storage volume (in other words, to add or retrieve stored items), look for a facility that provides such flexibility. Scalability needs often come hand-in-hand with accessibility needs, and providers like Able incorporate such functionality into the service.

Sensitivity to Temperature

Certain materials are susceptible to changes in humidity and temperature. These materials may deteriorate over long periods of exposure to these elements. Suboptimal climate conditions can cause distortion and mold growth on furniture and artwork surfaces. Take note of the sensitivity of your items before committing them to storage, and ask the provider what measures they take to combat environmental concerns.


To prevent burglary and protect items in storage, all facilities should have security measures. These may include security staff, 24-hour video monitoring, or security inspections (generally, more security comes at a higher cost). Clients of Able Moving can trust their items’ are safely stored as we utilize all three protocols listed above to ensure top security. To learn more about protecting valuable items, seek out storage facilities with a thorough security process.

Choosing a Storage Solution

In pursuing suitable storage solutions, you’ll encounter two storage options: self-storage and warehouse facilities. Self-storage refers to renting out a small unit within a complex of units, each of which is securable with a lock that the renter alone has a key. Self-storage is the most bare-bones storage solution available.

On the other hand, warehouse storage facilities offer a broad range of services that cater to many people’s needs.  These large warehouse spaces are managed by an organization (such as Able Moving) whose employees ensure the security and condition of all your items. They may offer additional storage services like packing, moving aid, and climate control. While all belongings could benefit from monitored warehouse storage solutions, those that require upkeep or particular conditions are the ideal candidates.
