Is Climate-Controlled Storage Right For Me?

Is Climate-Controlled Storage Right For Me?

It’s an honest question. So how do you know?

Climate-controlled storage units are designed to maintain a consistent temperature, providing protection against harsh weather conditions such as heat, cold, and moisture. Items that are known to be sensitive to harsh changes in temperature are wooden furniture, electronics, artwork or print materials, & delicate fabrics. Climate-controlled storage greatly reduces the risk of damage from mold, mildew, warping, or deterioration.

If you plan on storing items like these, then climate-controlled storage is the BEST solution for you. These units help preserve the integrity and condition of your belongings, ensuring they remain in GREAT condition for years to come.

Are my belongings safe WITHOUT using climate-controlled storage?

If you plan on storing items that are durable and not prone to damage from temperature or humidity changes, such as plastic bins of clothing or metal tools, then a standard drive-up storage unit is a GREAT option.

Drive-up storage units are BEST for accessibility and convenience, especially when moving & loading large items. While these units do not have the benefits of a climate-controlled environment, the ability to park directly in front of your unit saves time and effort.

It’s essential to consider your location and the climate of your area when choosing between the two. Areas with VERY extreme temperatures or high humidity levels year-round make climate-controlled storage the obvious choice.

Ultimately, the decision depends on your belongings and your budget. Before making a choice, call or visit your local Affordable Storage to see and talk about the best options for you.
