Looking for a place to store your things, but before you start looking for storage, ask yourself the following questions:
Do I need all this stuff?
If I got rid of some of this stuff, would I really miss them?
When was the last time I used it?
Does it have any sentimental or monetary value? Will this value increase with time?
The next question is, what are you storing? Items such as wine, electronics, or valuable papers all require special storage. You may want to ask about climate-control units. Climate-control storage costs more, but will prevent temperature changes from damaging your belongings.
