Self Storage Misconceptions : Why you need Climate Controlled Storage

Categories: Self-Storage

When looking for self storage, you may think you don’t need climate control. It cost more, and you don’t have that much stuff so non-climate should be fine; right? Let’s take a closer look as to why you might be wrong with this assumption.

Are you storing:

  • Clothes
  • Furniture
  • Papers

If you answered ‘ Yes’ to any of those you should really consider climate controlled storage.

Imagine if you will. . .

You get down to the storage facility and talk to the Property Manager, they tell you the wonders of Climate Controlled storage, but it costs more than Non-Climate Storage. Wanting to save a few extra dollars you think your belongings will be fine in a non-climate storage unit. Fast forward 9 months and you return to find your storage unit contents looking like this:

You think: ‘It’s just a little dust, nothing to worry about’

My friend, you are wrong. This is not just a little dust, this is mold.

How do you feel about that money you saved with the cost difference between climate controlled and non-climate, it’s pretty worthless isn’t it?

Climate Controlled Storage Makes a difference.

Now that we’ve given you a situation to consider, how do you feel about spending that little extra money? The benefits of climate controlled storage far outweigh the cost. And if you still aren’t convinced here are some key benefits:
