What is climate-controlled storage?
Climate-controlled storage is best for sensitive materials that need protection from extremely high or low temperatures; these materials might include electronics, computer components, vinyl records, or anything else that wouldn’t do well in very high or low temperatures. We offer both climate-controlled, and non-climate controlled secure units as well as boxes, packing materials, and unit locks for sale.
What size storage unit do I need?
The amount of storage you’ll need depends on how many items you plan on storing. We offer units that range in size from 25 square feet (roughly the size of a small room of belongings) up to 480 square feet (can typically hold up to six rooms of belongings or a motorhome). Check out our storage unit size comparison page for more information.
What’s the difference between POD storage and self-storage?
PODs are large, portable metal units that can be delivered to your home where you can load them yourself and then they can then be stored on your property, delivered to your new address or transported to a special storage facility. While pods are very convenient, they offered limited accessibility if stored offsite and their fees can be higher than traditional self-storage options. Self-storage allows for more convenience since we offer extended hours to access your belongings at your leisure, and our rates are very affordable. We also provide climate-controlled storage options, and we offer a wide range of boxes, packing material, and other needed goods for big moves.
