Storage is storage, right? No! Seems the same, right? No!
Storage can be rented “by the month” or in “4 week increments”. It seems like the same statement – but it’s not! Some storage operators think the general public is not savvy enough to consider there are 52 weeks in a year.
Because there are 52 weeks in a year, 52 divided by four weeks = 13. Therefore, a “four-week rental” storage, for a year, will equal 13 payments, not 12 payments like a “monthly” storage rental company.
The “4-week” guys have got another month of rent from you and charge by the week. Sometimes they will reduce the rent slightly so the price looks better against a “monthly” company like Sentinel. We prorate at vacate and charge you by the day if you only need a few extra days after your due date. Why pay for something you don’t need? Be a savvy storage user and ask the questions BEFORE you select a storage provider. It can save you money!
