Whether you’re becoming so successful in your auction hunting that you need more room to stash your loot, or you’re just looking for a temporary solution to keep your valuables safe and dry when moving, finding the right storage unit at the right price can be a hassle. In many cities, there are so many different options to choose from that it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the choices.
Some companies offer attractive move in specials for the first month or so, but then jack their rental rates up to something much higher. Some companies charge $150 a month for a 10 x 10 unit, and some charge $100 a month for an 8 x 9 unit. Puzzling out exactly how much space you need, and exactly which storage company currently has it available at the right price used to be a whole day’s work.
Now, thanks to an awesome side called Sparefoot.com, you can see exactly what’s available near you, exactly how much stuff it will hold and how much it will cost you.
