What You Should Think About Before Renting From A Local Storage Company in Boise

Last updated December 03, 2020 by Tessa Bishop

With all the growth moving into the Treasure Valley, have you been looking for a storage facility that fits your needs and seems to check off all the boxes? One storage facility might appear to be the same as any other, but there could be differences that will affect you. Picking a storage facility that is right for you should be something you research and not just choose randomly.

Whether looking to rent a storage unit for one month or one year, here’s a list of what to ask when looking for a storage unit to avoid a hassle later.


Time and time again, you’ll find storage facilities that have different pricings listed depending on the source you’re looking at. Online, phone and in-person could all be separate pricing, meaning you may not be getting the best deal depending on your form of contacting the storage facility. Idaho Storage Connection has one price for each storage unit size, and that is it. In addition, storage companies may offer seemingly amazing deals but after two months into an agreement the price begins to rise, which can create a stressful financial situation for renters.

Working with a local storage facility, like Idaho Storage Connection, they vow to stay upfront and honest about the costs for each storage unit, and will never increase your price without notification.


Many storage companies charge administration fees at time of rental. Make sure when you inquire about storage, you ask what additional fees are part of the rental agreement. Also, check to see what the fees are if you are late with your payment. Asking the right questions about the potential for price changes from the beginning of your storage facility search may help prevent the inevitable increase of monthly fees.

Idaho Storage Connection takes pride in their customer service by having onsite managers who respond to every call and email to ensure not only a great customer experience and connection from the start, but also upfront pricing and fees.


Some units require renters to have insurance, which can range from $9 and above as an additional fee. On top of that, some even require specific insurance to benefit partnerships they may have with insurance companies. Although Idaho Storage Connection doesn’t require insurance for people to lease space, they provide multiple options if that’s what you prefer. Idaho Storage Connection leaves the option up to it’s renters all while providing worry free storage.


When looking for a storage facility, make sure you inquire based on your needs. Some things to think about.

  • Is the facility convenient to my residence?
  • Is the facility well maintained?
  • Do they have on-site management overseeing the facility?
  • What are the gate and office hours?
  • Are they fully fences and have computerized gate access?
  • Is the facility well-lit?
  • Do they provide you a lock, or do you use a personal lock?
  • Do they offer payment options like online bill pay?

Not all storage facilities will offer the same features, and this may be reflected in the price. Compare what's available to make sure you get the things you need from your storage provider.
