Default Storage Units in fenton , What to look for?

Whats a good Rate ? I need somewhere to keep my toolbox my quad and POSSIBLY my S10 and a few other small things..

Are any of these places insured ?? I think an 8X18 would fit everything i need.. What do I need to look for when searching for storage units ?? What's a good Rate for a unit that size ??

You can get insurance for a storage unit, but you'll have to get it yourself, most storage places are "at your own risk". when I had a storage unit, I got renters insurance (I think that's what it was?) through my auto/life insurance guy.

The place I use is called "simply self storage" and they offer insurance for a small price. I pay I think just under $80 for a 10x20. Some places may not allow u to park you s10 there. Really they are are all a big ripoff... Y are you moving out? Lol

I might have a garage to store that stuff. Prolly not the S10, but possibly the other stuff. Find out what rates are and maybe we can work a deal. Maybe.....

Make sure you look into the security of the place and insurance. When I was living in Indianapolis we had a storage unit and they had like 30 of them broken into in one night and luckily the only thing they took from me was this old ass tv.

But my point is the storage company had no cameras , no security guards and they wouldn't even replace the lock that the thief cut off. We were supposed to buy another one from them.

I'd be buying my own (uncutable) lock(s) and prob putting the S10 in front of the Quad/tools Make it a lot harder..

Some storage units make you use there specific locks. Which are usually rather shitty
