Storing your belongings can come in handy for many occasions. Do you need to downsize, but don’t want to get rid of your belongings because you will need them in the future?

Your belongings will be sitting there waiting for your return. Maybe you are remodeling and just need to store your belongings for a few days. There are many reasons why one might need to store their belongings. Whether your need for storage is short term or long term, there is a storage solution for you.
What is the minimum amount of time to rent a storage unit?
U-Haul centers do not require a storage contract. This means that you can rent a storage unit for any amount of time that you need it. There is no minimum amount of time to rent a storage unit. However, to get your money’s worth, plan to store for a minimum of 30 days and in 30 day increments. Storage rates are not prorated, so if you begin a month and only store for 5 days, you will not get the 25 days of unused storage days refunded; you will be paying for all 30 days.
Independent storage dealers run their business on their own terms. They may require a contract, a minimum rental time, etc. Before confirming a reservation at an independent dealer, you will want to ask them to verify their terms and conditions.
