Is It Possible To Share A Storage Unit?

If you are renting a storage unit for the first time, you likely have a lot of questions.

Perhaps you are considering sharing a storage unit. This could be because because you feel you don’t need all the space or you want to split the costs. Whatever the case may be, this is a certainly a common question.

So, is it possible, then, to share a storage unit?

Is It Possible To Share a Storage Unit?

The short answer to this question is that it depends on your particular storage facility. However, many storage facilities will allow you to share your storage unit with someone else. Some storage facilities, for example, will even offer group rates.

However, also consider that if you do decide to share a storage unit with someone else, there are a few things you should keep in mind to ensure that the experience goes well. First and foremost, it’s important to ensure you’re sharing with someone you trust.

Many storage units, for example, will ensure that one person is legally responsible for paying the monthly storage fee. In the event that the person you share with fails to pay his or her share, that person is still obligated to pay the full rental fee.

Lastly, keep in mind that sharing a storage unit is much like sharing an apartment or house. For this reason, it’s important to have conversations upfront to ensure that everyone is on the same page regarding expectations and so on. For example, if someone is using more space than the other, it’s important to reach an agreement about who will pay what percent of the monthly fee.
