Self Storage logistics

Postby VultureChow » Wed Apr 10, 2013 11:41 am

Wow. Only one year, and I'm beginning to see the cost of purchasing and then donating and/or shipping adding up. Regarding the logistics of self storage in Reno, is there sufficient storage inventory in Reno to wait until the month of the event and then reserve online? Or should I do it earlier.

Are there huge backups pre-event at the facilities?

I searched the threads, found a few facilities that would work. Most, not all have online reservations, but then you have to show in person to actually sign the contract. Any danger of showing up and having my unit not be available?

You might also want to consider looking up storage places between Reno and the playa. Your favorite map site or app will show you a list of the town names, and searching for town name + storage will probably get you plenty of results. That way you can keep the year-over-year hauling to a minimum. One of these years I plan to do that for a chunk of our camp infrastructure - even though our art changes pretty significantly from year to year, a growing part of the back-end infrastructure is the same stuff. Seems silly to be driving it all the way to San Francisco (where storage costs are higher) and back every year.
