  4. 4. MYTH 1 YOU MUST COMMIT FOR AT LEAST 6 MONTHS UNLIKE RENTING A HOUSE, SELF STORAGE UNITS ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE SHORT TERM, AS SHORT AS 1 MONTH AT A TIME. THIS MAKES THEM IDEAL FOR STORING FURNITURE AND HOUSEHOLD ITEMS WHILE YOU'RE RENOVATING OR BETWEEN HOMES.
  5. 5. MYTH 2 YOU CAN KEEP ANYTHING IN THE UNIT MOST THINGS CAN BE KEPT IN STORAGE FROM YOUR RARE SHELL COLLECTION TO THE SKI GEAR. HOWEVER, FOR THE SAFETY OF THE STORAGE FACILITY, SOME ITEMS SUCH AS GAS BOTTLES, PERISHABLES LIKE FOOD, FLAMMABLE MATERIALS, AND HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS CAN'T BE STORED IN THE UNIT.
  6. 6. MYTH 3 YOU CAN STAY IN THE UNIT IF YOU NEED TO AHH, NO, WHAT YOU'RE LOOKING FOR IS A HOTEL. IT'S NOT POSSIBLE TO SLEEP OR STAY IN THE STORAGE UNIT.

  10. 10. MYTH 7 PESTS WILL GET INTO MY STUFF ALL REPUTABLE STORAGE FACILITIES WILL HAVE ROUTINE PEST CONTROL MEASURES IN PLACE TO KEEP RODENTS, INSECTS, AND OTHER PESTS OUT OF THE UNITS.
  11. 11. MYTH 8 USING A STORAGE UNIT IS LIKE STORING MY STUFF IN A DIRTY GARAGE EVEN THOUGH MANY STORAGE UNITS HAVE A ROLLER DOOR ENTRANCE JUST LIKE A GARAGE, THE INSIDE IS MORE LIKE A STOREROOM THAN A GARAGE. STORAGE UNITS ARE CLEANED THOROUGHLY AT THE END OF EACH RENTAL SO THE UNIT WILL BE SPARKLING CLEAN READY FOR YOU TO LOAD YOUR GEAR IN.
