STORAGE BASICS OVERVIEW
Assess Your Needs
Finding an affordable storage unit can be an overwhelming task, especially if you aren't familiar with all of the options and features available. It's best to assess all of your storage needs before you even search for a local storage facility. Consider how long you might need the self storage unit. Many facilities offer discounts for long-term storage, but some may also have specials for temporary rentals. Estimate how much space you will require. Save money by only renting the space you need. Feel free to use our self storage calculator to help you. Many facilities will store larger items including cars, campers, and other motorized vehicles.
Be Prepared To Ask Yourself These Questions
- How often will you need to access the secure storage?
- Are any of the items you plan to store sensitive to temperature or humidity?
- Might you need a mobile unit for your storage?
- Be sure to ask the facility if they have: fencing, surveillance cameras, motion-activated lights, alarms, guards, or a police presence.

At Starkville Mini Storage, we have a lot of different sizes and shapes of storage units and facilities. We know that we’ll be able to find one that is best-suited for your storage needs. We even have a self storage calculator available on oursite to help you determine the best size.
Sometimes it can be just as economical to pack your items into a mobile storage unit as to utilize a freestanding one. These units are dropped off, you fill them, and then they get picked up and taken to the storage facility. Whenever you are ready to get all of your stuff back, you call them and they drop the storage unit off for you! It might not be the best solution for items you need ready access to, but otherwise, many find these mobile storage units quite handy.
A final word on delicate items! If your possessions contain any of the following: leathers, furs, clothing, paintings, film, photographs, furniture, antiques, musical instruments, wine, paper, software, DVDs, CDs and electronics, you absolutely want to make sure that you are getting a climate-controlled unit. Do you want to know what happens to wine left all year in a blazing-hot storage unit? You don’t, we promise you. Put some thought into what you’re going to be storing, and make sure you choose the storage solution that’s right for you and your finery, too.
