If you see a small, slick sports car flying down the road, it could be the new Alfa Romeo 4c. This new model is among the surge of Italian cars making its way back to the U.S. after a nearly 30 year hiatus. In the last few years the U.S. has seen an increase in Italian automobiles on roadways across the country. This is due in part to the return of FIAT, which brought with it a number of new, more affordable models to add to its Ferraris and Maseratis, which were already being sold in the U.S. before the Italian automaker’s return.

In addition to storing furniture or unneeded household items temporarily, self storage can allow you to tuck away seasonal items, protect your boat or car during bad weather and clean out room in your basement or garage. But with 52,500 storage facilities in the United States, how can you find the right storage company for your needs? Here are five questions you should ask:
