Choosing the Perfect Unit

Storage Tips

If you are moving, downsizing, renovating, or just have acquired too much stuff, the desire for a self storage unit may be on your mind. Choosing the best self storage unit for your needs might seem like a daunting task, with Store Stuff Inc we make it easy! We are here to assist in guiding you through the steps involved to obtain the perfect self storage unit for you! The three types of self storage units you should know about are; climate control, non-climate control, and drive-up self storage units. Climate controlled self storage units are temperature regulated and ideal for items that are sensitive to extreme temperatures such as electronics, wooden furniture, and important documents. Self storage units that are non-climate controlled do not offer temperature regulation and are typically less expensive than climate control units. These units are best suited for items that can withstand wide temperature fluctuations. Some items that you may store in a non-climate controlled self storage unit include holiday decorations, outdoor furniture, and outdoor recreational items. Drive-up self storage units offer drive up access to your unit, allowing you to pull right up like a garage. This type of unit is non-climate controlled and is similar to storing items in a garage or outdoor shed. Belongings such as lawn equipment, seasonal decorations, and even seasonal recreational items will do well in this environment. Indoor units are located inside of the main storage building and require you to carry your belongings through the hallways and elevators or stairs to your unit. A lot of facilities offer dollies or carts to assist with this. Be sure to ask when you are shopping for your unit!
