Do your items need to be climate controlled?
If you’re storing things that need to be kept at a controlled temperature, climate controlled storage might be for you. Some examples of things that might need to be in a controlled climate include antique wooden furniture, consumer electronics like video and audio equipment, clothing, media equipment, pharmaceutical and medical supplies or anything collectible.
Climate controlled storage may cost more, but in certain locations it is absolutely necessary. It’s especially important to get a climate controlled storage unit in places that are hot and humid.
Important paperwork, leather furniture or anything particularly sensitive to humidity fluctuations that can shrink, warp or thin out in extreme temperatures should be stored in a climate controlled unit.
Do you have special specifications?
Think about the specifications you will need for your items to be put in storage. Do you need extra security? Will you need in-person surveillance? Do you require the facility to be well lit? Depending on the size and kind of items you will be storing your needs will change.
In addition to storing household goods, storage units can house things like business equipment, boats, cars, RVs and motorcycles. Office equipment that’s not in use can be stored in units designed to accommodate business owner.
When it comes to RVs, trailers of any kind, or boats, having somewhere to park your prized possession is crucial. You will need to consider accessibility as well as size of the unit needed. Many facilities have 24 hour access at no additional charge, allowing you to access your items anytime you choose.
