Mountain View Storage FAQs

As the years go by, it is hard to not collect more and more belongings that eventually may not fit into the space you have at home. When there are items that you don’t want to let go of but take up too much space at home or the office, self-storage offers the perfect solution for secure, clean, and efficient management of excess clutter. At Stowit Mini Storage, we often hear questions about our storage facilities and billing options, so we have provided some answers here to help you see the benefits of our flexible storage solutions.

Why should I use self-storage?

One of the biggest perks of self-storage is that you don’t have to worry about whether your belongings are safe, since they are protected with electronic keypad access. This will allow you to have one less thing on your mind, which can be particularly beneficial if you are:

  • Downsizing your home – Amidst a move, it can be a hassle to keep track of all of your belongings—especially when it comes to the non-essentials like seasonal decorations or guest room furniture. Self-storage can keep these items out of the way for a smarter, easier move.
  • Attending college – When you are in school, you might not have the option of storing your stuff at your parents’ house, but self-storage is a reliable solution, even with a student’s tight budget.
  • Cleaning out your office – If it’s time to clear out more space in the office or transition between spaces, you may want the convenience of a storage unit, where you can keep clutter out of the way for an efficient workspace.
  • Minimizing clutter around the house – After years of letting closets, garage space, and spare bedrooms become filled with non-frequently used items, you might clear out your home and create more usable living space by making a small investment in a storage unit.
