Self Storage Estimate
When you require mini storage as part of your moving process, you have a couple of options. Your moving company can seamlessly include it in your moving plan, or you can load up your storage unit or container yourself. Contact your moving company for availability to rent a storage unit or container. They will provide you with a date to move into your storage unit or set up a moving crew to move your items into a storage unit.
If you choose the latter option, your moving team will load your items onto a specialized truck and transport them to your chosen storage unit or container on the day of your move. They will carefully place your belongings into the unit as an option. When you’re ready to move into your new location, the team will retrieve your items from storage and deliver them to your new home or office, ensuring a smooth transition from storage to your new space.
“Not all storage options are created equal! Some storage units are built as inexpensively as possible, and some are built much better! INSPECT where you are storing your items prior to renting.”
Our movers can seamlessly integrate mini storage into your move by moving the items from your home to the mini storage container.
Since the mini storage containers are outside, you can access them whenever you please.
We offer long-term and short-term storage in our mini-storage units and containers to best meet your needs.
In the moving industry, storage units come in various sizes to accommodate different storage needs. These can range from smaller units suitable for personal belongings to larger spaces for bulkier items like furniture or business inventory. The choice of size is essential for efficient and cost-effective storage, ensuring customers pay only for the space they need.
At Guindon Moving & Storage, we offer various sizes of storage units to meet various storage requirements. Our self-storage units vary from 10×10, 10×12, 8×20, 10×20, 10×24, 12×24, 12×36, to the largest size of 18×36. This variety allows you to choose the perfect size for your specific storage needs, whether it’s for a small number of items or your entire home.
Pricing for storage units typically varies based on size, location, and any additional features like climate control. Customers should expect competitive pricing that reflects the unit’s size and the facility’s amenities. The moving industry often structures pricing to be straightforward, ensuring customers understand what they are paying for.

Understanding the difference between storage containers and units is crucial in choosing the right option for your needs. Storage units are typically part of a larger, often garage-style building and come in various sizes to accommodate different storage needs. These units offer flexibility in size and are often housed in a secure facility. On the other hand, storage containers are standalone units with swinging doors that lock together.
At Guindon Moving & Storage, our containers are uniformly sized at 8’x20′, offering a quick and efficient storage solution. These containers provide the same level of security as storage units but are not integrated into a larger structure. We also offer garage-style storage units in many sizes, including 10’x10′, 10’x12′, 10’x20′, 10’x24′, 12’x24′, 12’x36′, 18’x36′. Both options allow users to apply their own locks for added security and are monitored and inspected regularly for safety and security.
Accessibility is a key factor in selecting a storage service. Most storage facilities offer customers access to their units during business hours, with some providing 24/7 access. The level of accessibility can vary, with some requiring appointments for access while others offer more flexible entry options.
Both our storage containers offer 24-hour accessibility without the need for appointments. This means you can access your belongings anytime that suits you, providing convenience and flexibility, especially for those with unpredictable schedules or urgent storage needs.
Security is a top priority in the storage industry. Most facilities offer features like 24/7 monitoring, gated access, and individual alarms for each unit. The goal is to provide customers with peace of mind, knowing their belongings are safe and secure.
At Guindon Moving & Storage, we prioritize the security of your belongings. Our storage units are monitored around the clock, providing continuous surveillance to ensure the safety of your items. Additionally, our facilities are designed with security in mind, featuring robust, lockable units. We understand that the safety of your belongings is crucial, and our comprehensive security measures are in place to provide you with peace of mind while your items are stored with us.
Most storage providers in the moving industry have a cancellation policy in place, which should be written in the storage contract. This policy usually requires notice before vacating a unit; in some cases, fees may be associated with early termination or last-minute cancellations. This period varies but typically ranges from a few days to a month. The notice period helps facilities manage their unit inventory and prepare for new renters.
At Guindon Moving & Storage, our cancellation policy is straightforward and customer-friendly. We simply ask for a 14-day notice before you vacate the container. This policy provides flexibility while allowing us to manage our inventory efficiently.
Weatherproofing and maintenance are critical in maintaining the integrity of stored items. Storage facilities typically ensure their containers are well-maintained, with measures to protect against weather elements and regular inspections for needed repairs. However, every storage facility is different, so ensure you address any worries about the containers you have with the company before storing with them.
Our storage units and containers are built with durability and protection in mind. They are designed to be weatherproof, protecting your belongings from rain and snow. Regular maintenance ensures that each container remains in top condition, providing a reliable and secure storage environment for your items. However, because the mini-storage containers are not completely climate-controlled, we do not recommend storing temperature-sensitive items like cosmetics, wooden furniture, artwork, and electronics in our mini-storage containers.
When considering what to store in mini storage containers, it’s important to recognize items that are generally not suitable or allowed. Typically, storage facilities prohibit storing perishable goods like food, which can attract pests and lead to spoilage. Hazardous materials, including flammable liquids, explosives, and toxic substances, are also banned due to safety concerns. Additionally, storing illegal items or stolen goods is, of course, prohibited.
In the context of our services, we adhere to these industry standards for safety and compliance reasons. We also recommend avoiding the storage of highly sensitive documents, like passports or tax documents, or extremely valuable items like family heirlooms and expensive jewelry. This protects both you and the value of your items in case of an emergency. It’s always best to consult with us directly if you have doubts about what you can safely store in your mini-storage container.
In the storage industry, many facilities recognize that transporting items to and from a storage unit can be a major hurdle for customers. To address this, some offer additional services such as rental trucks, moving dollies, and packing supplies. Others go a step further by providing full-service options, where professional movers handle the packing, loading, and unloading of items. This service is particularly beneficial for those who may not have the time, ability, or resources to move heavy or bulky items themselves.
At Guindon Moving & Storage, we are committed to providing assistance that simplifies the process of moving items to and from your storage unit. Our team is equipped to offer guidance and support for those requiring extra assistance with packing or loading their belongings. We can facilitate these requests for customers needing more comprehensive services, including transportation and packing. We aim to ensure that your experience with our storage solutions is convenient, efficient, and tailored to meet your requirements. Please feel free to reach out to us at (906) 786-6560 for any assistance you might need during your storage journey.
