  1. Recently I have been looking for a storage unit while my husband and I have been trying to downsize our home. Most of the advice I get is to go ahead, look at all of the pricing options, and storage sizes to figure out what would best fit my needs. However, I have never heard of renting a storage unit that has sprinklers around it just in case of a fire. This is a great precaution to have in case of emergencies. I did not know that some storage units offer having sprinklers around the units in case of a fire.
