Why Use Drive-Up Storage?

Drive-Up Storage Unit In Edmonton AB

Drive-up storage is a very convenient storage solution which allows you to simply drive up and unload your belongings.  Drive-up self storage units are typically exterior storage units that are unheated which make them a more affordable storage option.  These outdoor storage units are located at ground level and come in a variety of sizes.  When you rent a drive-up storage unit, you simply drive-up to it and start unloading your belongings, making loading and unloading a breeze!

Here are 4 reasons why you should use drive up storage and the benefits:

  1. Convenient To Load & Unload
  2. Ideal For Bulky & Heavy Items
  3. Shorter Distance To Your Vehicle
  4. Affordable Storage Solution

Convenient To Load & Unload

Drive right up to your unheated storage unit instead of walking down a long hallway or using an elevator to access your storage unit.  A drive-up storage unit makes unloading your items faster, which is also a benefit if you have hired a mover as they usually charge by their time.  A drive-up storage unit is an extension of your garage so you should never store any temperature sensitive items in it.

Ideal For Bulky & Heavy Items

Many multi-story climate controlled storage facilities require you to walk down a long hallway or you have to use an elevator.  This makes it harder to maneuver your heavy and bulky items on carts and dollies down the hallways of these facilities.  With a drive-up storage unit, you can drive right up like you would your garage.

Shorter Distance To Your Vehicle

Since there is a very short distance from your vehicle to your drive-up storage unit, it is a lot easier to load and unload heavy items.  Simply pull your vehicle up to your storage unit and unload.  When using unheated drive-up storage, it's a good idea to put a pallet on the floor and to cover all of your stored belongings.  Protect your furniture while in storage.

Affordable Storage Solution

Interior climate controlled storage facilities are temperature controlled making them more expensive to operate.  A drive-up storage unit is unheated making it less expensive to operate, therefore it is a less expensive self-storage space.

Common Uses of Drive-Up Storage

  1. Seasonal Items
  2. Vehicle Storage
  3. Commercial Storage
  4. Bulky/Heavy Items
