Self Storage or Full Storage, Which is Better?

Generically speaking, there are two storage options: “self-service storage” and “full-service storage”.  One big misconception about these two options is that self-storage is less expensive.  Surprisingly, this is usually not the case; especially for the equivalent of 5 rooms of furniture or less.Self and Full Storage Olympia Moving Washington DC Boston MA

Following are some of the pros and cons of self-storage versus full-service storage:

Full-Service Pros

  • Typically less expensive than self-storage
  • Furniture is professionally loaded into storage
  • Furniture is protected with pad and shrink-wrapping
  • Only authorized personnel are allowed in the facility for security purposes
  • Facility accepts liability for your property

Full-Service Cons:

  • Access is limited to the company’s hours of operation
  • Not a good solution if consistent access is required

Self-Service Pros:

  • No Access Fees
  • No appointments required to access your goods

Self-Service Cons:

  • Cost
  • No liability accepted by facility
  • Must load items into and out of storage without any assistance
