7 Simple Ways Self Storage in Lawton Can Help You Store Your Off-Season Stuff

Think about all the stuff you have in your home, driveway, or business. How much of it do you actually use every day, and how much of it is stuff that you only need part of the year and could be packed away or stored during the off-season? You probably won’t need that boat until the weather warms up in the summer. That snow blower isn’t going to see any action until January. Your hunting equipment has its season, as do your camping equipment and holiday décor. And all of these things are taking up valuable space while they wait for their season to arrive. Fortunately, self storage in Lawton, Oklahoma from Storage ‘R’ Us can help you store all your off-season stuff, and here are 7 ways we do it! 

  1. Store Autos, Boats and RVs in Lawton

When people think of self storage in Oklahoma, they tend to picture individual storage units that can hold all your unused furniture or boxes of belongings that you don’t want cluttering up your attic and garage. And of course, self storage in Lawton has plenty of those available, in different sizes to accommodate most any need! What you may not have known is that many self storage facilities also offer self storage for autos, boats, and RVs. Sure, storing an RV or boat at home doesn’t cost anything, but it takes up an awful lot of space, and some HOA agreements prohibit storing large vehicles at your house. That’s where RV, boat, and specialty auto storage in Lawton can come in really handy! 

  1. Self Storage for Off-Season Hunting and Camping Equipment

When hunting season is over, it’s important to properly store your gear. After all, you spent a lot of money on it, so you don’t want it just lying in the bed of your truck or piled in a heap in the basement. The best thing to do is to get your gear properly cleaned up, repaired where necessary, and put away neatly into a self storage facility so that you won’t be tripping over it during the off-season. While you can’t keep your actual firearms in self storage in Lawton—those should go in a gun safe—you can keep just about everything else here so it’s ready to go when hunting season rolls back around. Same goes for your tents, sleeping bags, and other camping equipment.

  1. Storage for Your Sporting Equipment

Most outdoor sports aren’t a year-round affair. Winters are too cold for golf, and summers are too warm for skiing. Whatever your sport, there’s a time of the year when you use your equipment, and a time of the year when it probably just sits someplace (hopefully out of the way) and waits until it’s time to get back out on the slopes or out on the links. Whatever sporting equipment you need to store during the off-season, there’s space for it at Storage ‘R’ Us.

  1. Lawn and Garden Equipment and Furniture Storage

If you own a home in Lawton, Oklahoma then you’ve probably got a fair amount of lawn equipment and garden tools in the garage or shed. From shovels and rakes to lawnmowers and leaf blowers, these items can take up a lot of space that might be better used for something else during the rest of the year. The same goes for pool furniture and equipment, or even patio furniture, which you probably don’t get much use out of in the middle of an Oklahoma winter. All these things can be packed up during the part of the year when they’re not in use—just remember to empty the gas tank on lawnmowers and other equipment with combustion engines—so that they’ll be ready to go when spring rolls around again!

  1. Off-Season Storage for Business

If you own a business, you know that space costs money. Whether you’re leasing office space or running a business out of your own home, every square inch of real estate is valuable. No matter what kind of business you run, you’ve probably got stuff on hand that you only need part of the year—whether that’s paperwork that only comes out around tax time, seasonal inventory, or equipment related to yard work or construction. Self storage in Lawton is a good way for your business to maximize your use of space while saving money and improving operational efficiency by keeping your stuff safe, secure, and accessible even when it’s not in use.

  1. Storing Seasonal Clothes for Your Family

You don’t need heavy coats and sweaters in the midst of a sweltering Oklahoma heat wave, and you probably don’t need shorts or swimsuits in the middle of winter. Especially if you have a big family, all those seasonal clothing items can take up a lot of space in the closet. So why not use self storage in Lawton as an extension of your closet to pack all those scarves and gloves away until you need them again? 

  1. And Everything Else…

Most of us decorate for the holidays, but where do we put all those decorations when Christmas, Halloween, or any other holiday is over? Some of us may keep snow tires or other automotive supplies around that we only use during the winter months. If you have a child who is going away to college, it may be time to put some of the stuff from their bedroom into storage, at least until they come back for the summer. Whatever you need to store—whether it’s for just part of the year or all of it—you can find the perfect place for it with self storage in Lawton from Storage ‘R’ Us.

Whether you’re a small business looking to save a bit of space, a hunter or sports aficionado who needs someplace safe and secure to keep your gear during the off-season, an auto buff with a project car that needs specialty auto storage in Lawton, or just someone who wants to reclaim their living space, Storage ‘R’ Us has the solution for you!

These days, more and more people are choosing to rent rather than buy their homes. In 2014, more than 40% of the population rented homes, apartments, or condos. Sometimes this is driven by convenience or budget, other times by necessity. Regardless of the reason, it’s a trend that doesn’t show any signs of going away, given that young people seem to be increasingly likely to rent rather than buy, with the share of renters aged 18 to 34 climbing to more than 70% in 2014.

If you’re one of the millions of Americans who rent a home, apartment, or condo, you know that there are tradeoffs, including limited space and limited options on how to improve that space for your own storage needs. That’s where self-storage in Oklahoma comes to the rescue. Whether you’re looking for self-storage in Chickasha, Newcastle, or anywhere else in Oklahoma, you can find storage solutions to help keep your stuff safe, secure, and out of the way, while also keeping it accessible while you rent!

Make a Moving and Storage Game Plan

Making a plan is a good first step before you embark on any big operation, and moving is definitely a big operation. When you’re moving into a new apartment or condo, your game plan will be determined in part by the reasons behind your move. You may be moving to go to school, to start a new job, or as part of your military service. (Military moves are especially common, and with so many bases around Lawton, Storage ‘R’ Us provides lots of military self-storage in Oklahoma.) You may be downsizing from a larger home into a smaller apartment, or moving out of your parents’ house or out of college dorms for the first time. In many cases, rentals are used to get a feel for a place before you buy a more permanent home there.

Whatever the reasons for your move, there will be stuff that you want to take with you, stuff that you want to leave behind, and probably stuff that you want to keep but may not have room for in your new place. Getting an idea of how much space you’ll have once you move can help prevent you from living out of boxes for weeks or months at a time once you get there. You can pack some things for your new place and some things for self-storage in Newcastle, or wherever you may be moving in Oklahoma. If you want more help planning your move, visit Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton, Newcastle, Chickasha, and across Oklahoma. We’ve got plenty of moving supplies for sale, PENSKE truck rentals available, and the self-storage pros on our staff know lots of great moving tips that will help your game plan succeed!

Weed Out the Stuff You Don’t Need

We all have stuff that we don’t need, so if you’re downsizing your living space anyway, it’s a great time to de-clutter and simplify your life and your move. After all, the less stuff you have, the less you have to move!

Just because you own something now doesn’t necessarily mean that it needs to come with you on the move, or go into storage. Let go of things you never use, or things that have no value to you—either monetary or sentimental. There’s no need to spend the time and energy moving things that you don’t actually want or need. For what’s left, however, self-storage in Oklahoma is a great fit. 

Measure Your Rooms

As we said, one of the most important parts of planning a move is knowing how much space you’re going to have when you get there. After all, there’s not much point in figuring out what you want to bring with you until you know what you can bring, right? When you visit the location, bring a tape measure, and get an accurate idea of the amount of usable space you’ll have to work with. Raw square footage numbers aren’t much help if it turns out that your bedroom is too narrow for your current bed. Once you know how much space you have in your rental, you can start figuring out how much space you’ll need in storage. 

Self Storage Oklahoma Calculator

Use the Self Storage Calculator

Some people are intimidated by the idea of renting self-storage in Chickasha or anywhere else, because they have no idea what size self-storage unit they’ll actually need. Fortunately, the pros at Storage ‘R’ Us have made it easy. You can visit any of our locations in Newcastle, Lawton, Chickasha, Moore, or Duncan, OK, and one of our self-storage associates will be happy to help you find the perfect self-storage unit for your needs. If you’re moving in from out of state, though, you may not have a lot of time to spend hanging out in Newcastle (or wherever) before you need to actually start your move, which is why we also have a handy online self-storage calculator that can help you to convert what you need to store into how much space you’ll need to store it! 

Rent Little, Rent Big

Self-storage in Oklahoma isn’t a one-size-fits-all situation; at least, here at Storage ‘R’ Us, we don’t think it should be. We don’t want you to rent any more space than you need, or try to cram all of your many rooms of stuff into a too-small unit. We want you to have the self-storage solution that’s perfect for you, your home, and your family. That means drive-up, exterior self-storage units, climate-controlled units, and many more options. We even offer RV, boat, and other specialty vehicle storage, for if you’re moving to a place with more restricted parking options than you’re used to.

All you need is a valid photo ID, current contact information, and about 15 minutes of time to fill out a lease agreement form. You’ll also want to bring along your own padlock so that you’re the only one who has access to the unit, though you can also buy padlocks from our on-site store. While you’re here, don’t forget to check out our gate and office hours. While you can generally access your stuff at any time, day or night, you might want to know when offices are open and staff are around to help you out.

And Consider Getting the Self Storage Insurance

Generally speaking, if you bother to put something into self-storage it’s because you want to keep it—unless it’s that collection of creepy porcelain dolls that you’ve somehow inherited, along with the curse that obviously comes with them. If something is important enough to you to store, it’s probably important enough to insure.

At Storage ‘R’ Us, we take the safety and security of our customers’ belongings very seriously. All our facilities are protected by fenced and walled perimeters and 24/7 digital video. But not even we can prevent natural disasters that may impact the contents of your self-storage unit. Fortunately, there are plenty of insurance companies that offer self-storage insurance to help protect the value of your stored possessions. One popular option is SafeStor, which offers a variety of inexpensive plans. You can ask your Storage ‘R’ Us self-storage team for more information, or ask for SafeStor insurance by name.

We may not think about it very often, but moving anxiety is a very real thing. After all, moving to a new home, a new town, maybe even a new state is a big change, and big changes can be exciting, but they can also produce a lot of stress. The average American moves 11 times in the course of their life, but if you or a family member are a part of the United States military, that number may be considerably higher.

According to professionals who study job and family stress, the various changes and logistical hurdles that come with moving invariably create a certain amount of anxiety. Fortunately, there are lots of things that you can do to help reduce stress and make your next move as easy as possible on you and your family.

Make a Moving Plan for You and the Family

A lot goes into a successful move, so it can help to have a plan before you get started. And of course, the foundation of any good plan is understanding how much time things are going to take. So, if you have a move coming up, it’s time to sit down with your calendar, figure out when you need to start preparing, and mark out all the big events that are related to the move, such as renting the truck, buying moving supplies, renting a self storage facility for anything that won’t fit in your new place, and so on.

When actually making your family plan, remember that everyone in the family has a job to do. The kids can clean out their closets and toy chests to find items they no longer want or use that can be donated. One person can be in charge of renting a moving truck, while someone else is packing and staging boxes. And of course, don’t forget to reach out to friends and extended family members who can help you out on moving day. As you make your plan, write everything down and keep it all together in a folder or filled out on your calendar. There are even time-saving apps that you can download that will help you plan your move and schedule everything accordingly. 

De-Clutter Your World

One way to make a move easier on yourself and your family is to simply move less stuff. Getting rid of items that you no longer want, need, or use is a good way to eliminate excess stress anyway—experts have found strong correlations between clutter and stress—and there’s no better time to de-clutter than right before a big move. Sort through everything you’ve got in the attic, the basement, the garage, or anyplace else that’s out of the way, and find anything that you don’t want to take with you to your new place. You can have a garage sale, or simply donate the stuff that you no longer want to Goodwill or some other thrift store. If you’ve still got stuff that you can’t bear to part with, but that there isn’t room for in your new place, self storage in Oklahoma can help you stay de-cluttered, even after your move. 

Moving Day Boxes and Supplies Lawton OK

Make Sure You Have the Right Moving Supplies

When we think about moving, we often focus on the big stuff like furniture and appliances, but the fact is that we have a lot more little stuff, and to move all of that stuff, you’ll probably need some good packing and moving supplies. That starts with boxes, but it doesn’t end there. Think packing tape, bubble wrap, and lots more. You may want a utility knife, especially to help break the boxes down when the move is done, and you’ll definitely want a few markers so you can write on the boxes. (Write which room the boxes are destined for, and also a quick summary of their contents so that things are easy to find once you get where you’re going.)

Fortunately, you can find all of these moving supplies and lots more at your local Oklahoma self storage facility, where helpful self storage specialists will also be able to answer any questions you may have and provide you with tips to help your move go smoother.

Rent a PENSKE Moving Truck for the Big Day

We’ve all experienced the move where we invited over every friend and family member we know who has a pickup truck, SUV, or trailer and piled it high with all our stuff. It’s a pain to coordinate all those vehicles, and nothing ever fits quite right. While there’s certainly something to be said for having all those extra hands to help—feel free to invite everyone over still, just treat them to the traditional pizza afterward—it will actually take a lot of the stress out of your move if you rent a single truck to haul everything.

Not only will all your stuff be together, and you’ll only have one vehicle to coordinate, but you’ll also find that everything just fits better in a truck that was specifically designed for just this situation. Fortunately, Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton and across southwest Oklahoma is one of the largest PENSKE truck rental representatives in the state, so you can reserve your rental truck at the same time that you pick up moving supplies or pick out a self storage unit.

Use Climate-Controlled Self Storage to Store Your Stuff

When you move, you may often find that not everything fits in the new house. Maybe you’re downsizing, or maybe you just want to reduce clutter and free up some space for a new hobby or an old one that you’ve been neglecting too long. Maybe you want to finally have the space to park the car in the garage. Whatever the reason, if you have treasured belongings that just don’t quite fit in your new home, climate-controlled self storage is the perfect solution to keep everything accessible and in good shape, while also keeping it out of the way.

Climate-controlled self storage is perfect for more fragile items that may be damaged by changes in heat, cold, or humidity. Talk to your self storage professional about the best ways to store your belongings, and if you’re storing something that’s particularly valuable to you, it’s always a good idea to ask about insurance. Self storage facilities take the security of your belongings very seriously, but even they can’t protect against events like tornadoes, floods, or other natural disasters.

Consider Vehicle Storage or RV Storage for that Car, RV, or Boat

Just as you may find yourself longing to de-clutter when you move, you may also get to your home and find that there’s just not a space for your project car, your boat, or your RV. Some homeowners’ associations actually have rules governing what kinds of vehicles can be parked where. So, if you find that you can no longer store your boat or RV in the back yard, it’s time to think specialty vehicle storage at Storage ‘R’ Us in Lawton. You can find covered and uncovered vehicle self storage in Lawton and across Oklahoma, so talk to your self storage specialist about what type of vehicle storage is right for you. It’s also a good idea to ask for tips and tricks if you’re planning to store vehicles for the long haul. We’ve got a few suggestions.

Public Self Storage in Lawton (and Around the Nation) is Booming

According to a July article in the St. Louis Dispatch, the United States is home to nearly 50,000 self storage facilities. All of those facilities represent more than 2 billion square feet of public self storage space, or about eight square feet per person. That means everyone in America could have a little bit of storage space, and many people already do!

Why are so many people turning to self storage in Lawton, OK and around the country? Changing lifestyles often lead people to seek out self storage solutions that fit their altered situation or needs. But with so many self storage locations to choose from all across the country, how do you pick the right one? For many people, the choice comes down to access and security. Those are the two most requested (and most Googled) features when it comes to public storage in Lawton or anywhere else.

Why Self Storage in Lawton is So Important

They say that the only constant is change, and these days that feels more true than ever. According to data compiled from the U.S. Census Bureau, the average American moves around 11 times over the course of his or her life. And of course, here in Lawton we know that military families often move far more frequently than other families do. Studies of jobs and careers indicate that the average American probably changes careers anywhere from five to seven times, and one-third of the nation’s workforce changes jobs almost every year.

Jobs and moves aren’t the only changes that drive a demand for public self storage in Lawton and across the country. A new addition to the family may require you to free up some space, or kids going off to college may mean that it’s time to downsize. Not everyone uses self storage as a temporary solution, either. Many Americans use self storage all year round to store holiday decorations when they’re not in use or to stow sports, hunting, and fishing equipment during the off season. Small business owners even use self storage as a way to store excess inventory or supplies or to stage products for shipment. Whatever the reasons we seek out self storage units, we want to know that our possessions are safe and that we can get to them when we need them.

Self Storage Security Means Everything

Let’s face it: You wouldn’t store your treasured belongings, business inventory, or anything else that’s important to you in a place that didn’t seem safe, right? That’s why security is such a vital component of any good self storage facility. The best self storage facilities in Lawton (and anywhere else in the country) put security first, with fail-safes like fenced and walled perimeters, gated access, bright security lighting, 24-hour digitally recorded video surveillance, computer-controlled safety property access, and more.

All of this helps to keep your belongings safe and sound, but even the best self storage in Lawton can’t protect against things like tornadoes or other natural disasters, so it’s always a good idea to get insurance for your prized possessions. 

Self Storage Security Means More than Cameras and Locks

Of course, keeping your valuables safe is about more than just protecting them from intruders or even natural disasters. Properly storing your belongings can help keep them safe and in good condition whenever you need them again. Climate-controlled self storage can help prevent your belongings from being damaged by extremes of heat, cold, and humidity, while heated and cooled self storage helps to store things that need to be kept within a specific temperature range. Whatever you’re storing and whatever you need, you’ll want to seek out modern and well-maintained facilities so that you know your belongings are in a place that you can trust.

24/7 Public Self Storage Lawton

24/7 Self Storage Access Because You Need it

People use self storage for all sorts of reasons. It’s convenient, it’s out-of-the-way, and it’s secure. But when people use self storage in Lawton or anywhere else, they still want to know that they can get access to their stuff whenever they need it. After all, you never know when you might need to haul out that snow blower (especially here in Lawton), that old cradle, those documents and files from last year’s business, or anything else that you might be keeping in public storage. It’s still your stuff, after all, so whether you need it in the middle of the night, on a Sunday, or any other time, after-hours and computer-controlled property access ensures that you (and only you) can access your belongings whenever you need them.

Self Storage Access Means More than Gates

It’s one thing to be able to get to your stuff when you need it, but it’s another thing to be able to move it in and out easily. Fortunately, the best self storage in Lawton and across the country offers convenient ways to help you move your belongings in and out and to organize them so that they’re easy to find. The best self storage facilities will offer wide entryways, wheelchair accessible self storage units, professional storage consultants who can offer advice and answer questions, access to moving equipment on site, and plenty of boxes and moving supplies available for purchase.

The Best Self Storage in Lawton is the Name You Know

Oklahoma self storage facilities didn’t really begin to appear and thrive until the 1970s, and the first Storage ‘R’ Us location opened at 2310 East Gore Blvd. in Lawton in 1972. Today, we have three locations for public self storage in Lawton and another five around Oklahoma. We’ve learned a lot in more than four decades, but one thing that’s always been true is that we’ve placed security, access, and other important self storage features first when designing, developing, building, and upgrading each of our locations over the years.

So, if you’re looking for the best self storage in Lawton with climate-controlled storage space, specialty vehicle storage, military self storage, great security features, 24/7 access, and many other features and amenities, then look no further than Storage ‘R’ Us!

People Use Auto Storage in Lawton for Many Reasons

Both individuals and businesses alike use vehicle storage in Lawton for vehicles they need to keep safe and secure but don’t necessarily use every day. For some shade-tree mechanics or would-be gearheads, it’s a place to keep a project car that they’re tinkering with. Others use auto self-storage in Lawton to store vehicles while they’re away at college, studying abroad, or deployed overseas. RV storage in Lawton stores RVs, boats, and other specialty vehicles so they’re out of the way during the off-season but easy to get to when their owners need them. Many businesses use vehicle storage as a secure place to keep work trucks, lawnmowers, and other equipment when it’s not in use. 

Vehicle Storage Opens up Your Driveway and Garage Space

Let’s face it, space comes at a premium. Even if you have a garage that’s big enough for every vehicle your family owns, chances are some of that space is taken up with other stuff. If you’ve got a boat, an RV, a four-wheeler, jet skis, or any other vehicle that you don’t use every day, it’s probably taking up space in your driveway or backyard even as you read this, right? You could find yourself getting into conflicts with homeowners’ associations, which often prohibit parking vehicles such as boats and RVs in driveways for long periods of time.

Plus, if you have a particularly nice car or motorcycle—say, something classic that you only take out on weekends or that you’ve been fixing up in your spare time—you may want to keep it someplace a little more secure than just your front drive. Auto storage in Lawton could be the answer you’re looking for.

Self-Storage Helps Keep Vehicles Safe from the Weather

Oklahoma isn’t exactly known for its steady climate. We get storms, hail, snow, high winds, you name it. That can do a number on a vehicle, especially if you’ve got a classic car or truck that you don’t drive that often. You could always tarp it and keep it in the garage, but then you’re running into that space issue again.

If you want your vehicle to be ready to go whenever you come pick it up, you’ll need to keep it maintained while it’s in storage, and that includes cleaning it, changing the oil and other fluids, and topping off the tank before you bring it in.

What to Know About Self-Storage Near Fort Sill and Military Bases

The average American may move about once every five years, but military personnel and their families often move much more frequently than average. Sometimes this is the result of base assignments, tours of duty, or even a permanent change of station. Whatever the reason, all that moving around has taught most military families to be much more mobile than their civilian counterparts. For many military service members and their families, that means taking advantage of affordable self-storage near Fort Sill or other military bases.

Military self-storage can help military families get settled into their new homes, provide a safe, out-of-the-way place for your belongings when you’re out of the country, and help you to stage your items in preparation for your next move.

How to Use Storage During Your Military Deployment

Storing something for a few weeks or even a few months—say, during a move, or when you’re staging your house for sale—is one thing, but many military service members go overseas for long deployments and need a place to keep their belongings safe and sound until they get back.

That’s why it helps to have knowledgeable people working with you who can help you set up your storage unit so that it’ll still be just like you left it when you get back.

A few good tips for long-term military self-storage include making sure that you’ve got a payment method that’ll stay up-to-date while you’re gone, as well as an emergency contact in case anything does go wrong. It’s also a good idea to take out insurance on any valuables that you may have in storage. Storage ‘R’ Us goes the extra mile to ensure the safety of all your belongings—including gated access, fenced and walled perimeters, and 24/7 digital video security—but even we can’t protect against things like natural disasters.

What to Know About Self-storage in Lawton.

Modern self-storage as we know it today got its start in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in 1958, but Oklahoma self-storage facilities didn’t really begin to open until the 1970s. In the years since, self-storage has continued to grow in Oklahoma and all across the country, with almost one in every ten households utilizing self-storage today. In fact, there is more than 2.3 billion square feet of rentable self-storage space in the United States right now. That’s the equivalent of 78 square miles, or about three times the size of Manhattan Island!

What do people put in all of that self-storage space? Just about anything you can imagine, from household items to business inventory, sporting goods to collectibles. People even use self-storage for boats, RVs, and other vehicles. Some of the most common items that are put into self-storage in Oklahoma are furniture, holiday decorations, seasonal clothing, and electrical appliances, but just about anything under the sun has been put into self-storage in Lawton over the years.

Before You Start Shopping for Self-storage in Lawton.

As with anything else, for best results you should have some idea of what you’re looking for before you start shopping for self-storage in Lawton. Decide just what it is that you’ll be storing, whether it’s business paperwork or crafting projects, and then figure out how much storage space you’ll need. An online storage calculator can help you to determine what size storage space is right for you! The most common sizes include 5×10 and 10×10 units, but many self-storage facilities offer units as large as 15×30, not to mention other solutions like covered vehicle storage.

It’s also a good idea to think about more than just the space that you’ll be using. Consider amenities and security features such as security cameras, fenced and walled perimeters, the availability of climate-controlled self-storage, gate access, and more. Some of the best self-storage facilities are designated Class-A, and often offer free use of moving equipment on-site. You might also want to ask about discounts for first responders or military self-storage.

Cheap Self-Storage Units in Lawton Can Be Found.

Beware of simply going for the cheapest option, however. With self-storage in Lawton, as with anything else, you sometimes get what you pay for. If you’re tight on money, Class-A self-storage facilities often offer move-in specials or military discounts, not to mention discounts of up to 10% off the monthly rental cost for first responders. To save cash, you can also split a unit with a neighbor, family member, co-worker, hunting buddy, your church, or your scout troop. Just remember, you’ll be sharing access to your self-storage unit with the person you choose, so make sure that it’s someone you trust.

Renting Self-storage in Lawton.

When you’re ready to rent self-storage in Lawton, the first thing to do is reserve your space. You can usually reserve in person or online, and the process is pretty quick and straightforward. To begin with, you’ll need to fill out a tenant info sheet, which will ask you for your personal information, your mailing address, probably your email address, and your date of birth (because you need to be over 18 to rent self-storage in Lawton). You’ll also need to list anyone who you want to have access to the unit and an emergency contact in case something goes wrong and you can’t be reached.

Most Class-A self-storage facilities accept just about any form of payment, and you can usually set up an auto-pay option or choose to receive monthly invoices via email. It’s also a good idea to buy insurance when you’re signing up for your self-storage unit. A good self-storage facility does everything that they can to keep your belongings safe, but there’s only so much that even the best self-storage in Lawton can do in the event of, say, a tornado.

Moving into a Lawton Self-Storage Unit.

Once you’ve signed your contract, it’s time to move in to your Lawton self-storage unit. If you haven’t already packed everything up, you can buy boxes and other moving supplies at most Class-A self-storage facilities, and find packing tips online to help you ensure that your boxes are packed safely and economically. When you move into your unit, it’s a good idea to stage the contents so that they’re easy to access and easy to find. This may include leaving aisles between boxes—not to mention leaving space between the walls of the unit and your belongings, to let your boxes “breathe”—and making an inventory list to help you locate items quickly. Pallets are great for keeping things up off the floor in a ground-level drive-up self-storage unit. And while most self-storage in Lawton is pretty sound, it’s always a good idea to take basic precautions against unwanted pests. Nobody wants to open up a box and find spiders or other creepy crawlers!
