Storage Snapshots: Photography Equipment

When I launched my photography business, I knew that I needed more space than I had at home. That's when I decided to rent a local storage unit to keep my studio gear organized. I spent a lot of time researching backdrops, staging, racks, and storage tips to keep all of my gear organized and protected when I wasn't shooting. With so many photographers looking for ways to expand their operations, I decided to share my storage tips so that I could possibly help others with their needs. I hope the information here makes it easier for you to organize your equipment and grow your studio.

Find Ways To Save Money Renting A Temporary Storage Unit

Brian Hamilton

If you need a storage unit, but only for a short period of time, it's a good idea to determine what you should be looking for to make sure that you don't spend more money than you're ready for. Avoiding a situation where the unit is overpriced or more than is needed for your items can be easier when you carefully do your research and choose a storage unit specifically meant for temporary use.

Consider Whether Climate Control is Necessary

Taking a look at all the items that you plan on putting into storage can give you some insight into whether you could benefit from climate control or not. Clothing, artwork, and electronics all need to be protected with climate control, making it helpful to know what you plan on putting into the storage unit.

With this in mind, you could spend more money on a storage unit with climate control included but you will also avoid damage to your items by doing so.

Avoid Signing a Long-Term Contract

Some storage facilities require any tenants to sign a longer lease, for up to a few months or a year. If you're intending on renting a storage unit for just a few months, or even a single month, you need to make sure that the storage facility doesn't require a longer lease.

By being careful to go over the contract and checking for any lease requirements, you can avoid a situation where you have to pay a penalty fee for ending your rental early.

Be Selective Over the Size of the Unit

When you want to rent a storage unit for just a short period of time, you likely won't need to leave a lot of open space to make the storage unit easy to walk around in. Checking out the dimensions of all the items you want to put in storage can also help make sure that you're aware of how items will fit inside of it and whether it will be large enough for your needs.

With the right-sized unit, you can save money and still have enough room for all your things to be put away safely until you need them again.

By determining which features you'll want to look for when renting a temporary storage unit, you can have a much easier time storing your items and feel good about how much money the rental will cost.

To verify if a storage unit will fulfill your needs, contact a self-storage facility that fits your requirements near you.
