Storage Units are an easy, convenient way to safely store items that you don’t use daily such as seasonal items, sporting and camping equipment, tools, supplies, and much more. This frees up space in your home and garage for those items that you use on a regular basis.
While choosing the right size unit to fit your needs is probably top of mind, it’s also important to consider what you’re storing and if a drive up unit or one that is more protected from the elements is what you need. We’ve outlined the types of self storage units and their benefits below.
Traditional storage units are typically the most popular choice for self storage and are suitable for items you would be comfortable storing in a household garage. These would include items not susceptible to heat or cold temperature fluctuations.
Drive Up Units come in multiple sizes and offer many conveniences such as:
It’s important to note that many drive-up storage units are not climate controlled and depending on what part of the country you live in, weather conditions can affect access to an outdoor storage unit.
Climate Controlled Units implies that you can actually control the temperature inside the individual unit. This is not always the case, so it’s important to know what you’re getting when you rent a self storage unit. Think of climate controlled storage units as ‘temperature controlled’; cooled in the summer and heated in the winter.
Humidity controlled storage units adjust the humidity of the air inside the unit to maintain safe levels of moisture regardless of temperature fluctuations.
In cold winter climates, heated storage spaces help protect stored items from the effects of cold climate temperatures.
Air cooled storage units are cooled by air blown through water vapor to lower the temperature. These units are ideal for:
For the hotter climates, air conditioned storage spaces cool and help protect valuable items from the effects of extreme heat.
Whatever your storage needs, self storage units are a great choice for protecting your valuables.
