Choosing The Right Unit

If you have ever utilized a storage service provider or are in the market for one with hopes of finding a reliable, affordable and most importantly suitable unit for your personal items, the probability is you have already done some sort of research on what is out there. Regardless of what you know or may not know about the different types of storage different companies have to offer, consider this short guideline to choosing the most convenient unit for you.

Generally, most public storage companies offer a basic arrangement of storage options. These include indoor, outdoor, climate controlled, non- climate controlled and portable units. Naturally, the easiest way to choose places that offer the most convenient storage amenities for you is evaluating the different factors that may affect your specific items for storage and obtaining the proper knowledge about the different storage units.

One very important factor when choosing a storage unit is knowing whether or not your items need to be kept in a temperature regulated environment. If you have perishable goods or items with a short short shelf- life, it is ideal to store them in an air conditioned unit to prevent their deterioration. In addition, items such as wood furniture and such also need to kept in a temperature regulated unit to prevent withering and warping. Remember that evaluating the climate conditions where you live will predict the importance of having an air conditioned unit- search for storage facilities that offer completely closed- off, 24/7 temperature regulated units.

On the other hand, after you’ve evaluated your items for storage and conclude that you have items that will not be affected by weather, a much cheaper and convenient option for you would be to go with a non- temperature regulated unit. Although temperature may vary depending on season, most non- controlled units are kept dry and closed off to prevent the build up of any mildew, bacteria and other foreign items you would want away from your valuables.
