Mini-storage ... more ...

PROS: You have greater access to your items and the monthly fee for renting a mini-storage unit will most likely be cheaper than warehouse services. You have sole access to your unit since you must provide your own lock and key. There's an added sense of security.
CONS: You assume complete responsibility for your items through every step of the process. Some facilities may offer free pickup; otherwise you will have to find the means of transporting your items to your unit.

Warehouse storage ... more ...

PROS: Professional workers will properly handle your items through every step of the process. If damages should occur to your items, the warehouse operators will be liable. All packing and loading services, as well as paperwork, are completed at your home. Other than for purposes of inspecting the warehouse, you never have to visit the facilities.
CONS: Your access to your items is limited. You are restricted to the warehouse operators' schedules. In addition, because the workers handle your items, you may incur retrieval fees.
