Why is self storage so popular?

Last Updated on: 13th January 2023, 12:23 pm

Self storage has become popular for several reasons. The main reason is that people are looking to downsize their homes and need an extra space to store their belongings.

Another reason is that people are moving more frequently and need a temporary place to store their items while they transition to a new home. Additionally, self storage can be a convenient option for businesses that need extra space to store inventory or equipment. It also allows for flexibility in terms of the size of the space and the duration of the rental, which can be tailored to the individual’s specific needs.

Self-storage is very popular but we actually provide an additional service called portable storage. Let us explain what we mean.


Why people choose Honor Storage

There are a couple of reasons why people choose the storage options for Honor Storage. We are very unique since we actually offer portable and on-demand self-storage services. This means that we come with the storage unit to your home, help you with packing, and drive it back to our storage facilities.

Some other reasons why people choose us instead of our competitors are:

  1. Location: The facility should be conveniently located and easily accessible. For example, are you looking for Thousand Oaks self storage? We are conveniently located in Ventura County, and also provide services for nearby locations such as Calabasas.
  2. Security: Look for a facility that has good security measures in place, such as surveillance cameras, gated access, and climate control.
  3. Cleanliness: A clean and well-maintained facility is more likely to keep your belongings in good condition.
  4. Cost: Compare prices between different facilities to find a storage option that fits your budget.
  5. Amenities: Some facilities offer additional amenities such as climate control, 24-hour access, and drive-up units.
  6. Customer service: Look for a company with a good reputation for customer service, and that is responsive to your needs.


Difference between self-storage and portable storage

Portable storage is the way Honor Storage uses. We have a container delivered to your location, which you fill with your belongings. Once the container is filled, the company will transport it to a storage facility. This option is more convenient as you don’t have to move your items to a storage facility, but you will have to pay for the container to be delivered and for the storage and transportation.

Both self-storage and portable storage have their own pros and cons, depending on the individual’s needs and preferences. However, portable storage is usually a lot more convenient. That said, self-storage could be cheaper but you need to transport your belongings by yourself.
