A Guide To Storing Your Treasures

Hello, my name is Pete Stone. Over the years, I have met a lot of interesting people and we have exchanged gifts. Many of these gifts are very unique and irreplaceable, with some being custom-made or created by the gift giver himself or herself. The problem is that I live in an apartment that is not very large. My only solution to this problem is to purchase storage space. There is an art to using a self-storage unit that I have discovered. With the right storage techniques, your belongings will last. Because I have learned so much, I have decided to create this blog to share my knowledge with anyone who needs it.

Read A Short Guide On Climate-Controlled Storage


If you're seeking a storage unit for your possessions, then it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with climate-controlled storage units. Depending on what items you plan on storing and how long you'll be storing them for, you may or may not find these units to be the best choice. This brief guide can help you decide if climate control is right for your needs. 

Climate-controlled storage units aren't difficult to locate

You might think that climate-controlled storage is something that you're really going to have to search for. However, some good news is that the majority of storage facilities have a good number of these units for rent. 

These units can offer different types of climate control

Not all facilities will offer climate-controlled units that have heating, cooling, and humidity control. Instead, they may just have whatever the area usually calls for. This means a region that doesn't get very hot might not offer heated units. If you've just moved to an area and are surprised all three features aren't offered, then know that this is likely why. Know that your items will be kept at a good temperature and humidity level, whether it occurs naturally or is done through the system. 

Climate-controlled storage units are usually indoor units

When you are going to rent a unit that has climate control, be aware that they are generally indoor ones. This means that they are usually located inside the building. Some of them will have outdoor access, while others may only be accessible from the interior portion of the building. When you are renting such a unit, you'll need to let them know if you need outdoor access. This would be best if you have a lot of large and bulky items that would be more difficult to take through the corridors. However, if you have mostly boxes and bags you can bring in on the dolly, then a unit with indoor access only will work fine for you. 

There are so many items that should be stored in units with climate controlled

You may have more items to store that should be kept in a moderate and dry climate than you realize. Wood items, such as furniture, frames, musical instruments, decor, collectible items, and others should be in a protected environment. Otherwise, the wood can warp, crack, and even rot. Multimedia items, such as photographs, newspapers, DVDs, CDs, and even VCR tapes should also be in a unit with climate control, or they can all become damaged. This likely helps you see just how many items you own that should be protected from extreme temperatures and humidity.


Now, you're better versed on storage units that can offer you the right place for you to keep your things stored safely. You can rent a storage unit for as short or as long of a period as you need. You can also extend the period of time any time you determine you need the unit longer. This flexibility can often be a great thing when you're keeping your important belongings in storage.
