There are many good reasons to consider renting a storage container. These containers provide a great way for you to protect everything from personal belongings to business equipment. They enable you to store property in a secure place without taking up space at work or at home. You may even have found a great storage container company to rent from. However, at Eagle Leasing, we recommend that you take your time when choosing a storage container, and get a quote before entering into an agreement. 

There are several reasons why we believe you should get a quote when you want to rent a container. We hope they help you make an informed decision when you’re looking to rent a storage container for your possessions! 

Reason #1: You might find a better price elsewhere. 

One of the best reasons to consider getting a quote for your storage unit is so that you can price shop in your area. Most storage businesses that give you a quote will lock in the price for a certain period of time (usually for a week or, in some cases, up to a month). That is time you can spend contacting other companies to get quotes from them too. 

In some instances, a price quote could help you save money with your preferred storage company. Maybe you’ve found a place you would love to store your possessions, but the price quote is higher compared to what someone else has quoted. Present the price quote that the competition provided, and you may be able to barter down your bill with your first-choice company.

Reason #2: You won’t be surprised when you get your bill. 

One of the tricky things with renting is that sometimes the first bill you get isn’t the same as what you expected to pay. Maybe you missed some information listed in the terms or conditions, or maybe prices increased between the time you first came in and when you signed the agreement.  

With a price quote, you have something to point to when the bill doesn’t match your expectations. Present the price quote to the storage company, and in many situations, they’ll be willing to make amends by charging you the quoted price instead. One thing that’s important to keep in mind – often quotes exclude certain taxes and fees. So be sure to read the quote carefully so you know what to expect! 

Reason #3: It can help you figure out your exact storage needs. 

There are many different factors to consider when you’re looking to rent a storage unit, each of which can affect the price you’ll pay. A price quote can help you find a balance between your budget and your storage needs. For example, if the quote is too high, look for a unit that has fewer features, or consider whether a smaller unit could accommodate your needs. Talk with the company to figure out if there are different options that will decrease the quoted price until it fits your budget, while still meeting your storage requirements.
