10 x 12 Shed in Memphis, Tennessee

Verified Review

"Lakendrick is very nice and professional¹ and responds quickly. He even honored the price of the unit upon my inquiry as opposed to the $10 increase a week later. I'm sure his unit might have been nice, but I have now been charged through this app fo r 2 months of storage that I have never used. After renting the space and getting the exact location, it turned out to be 25 minutes away from me instead of 10. I had to put my 20 year old dog down the day after renting the space and did not remember to cancel the unit within the 24 hour time frame. I messaged Lakendrick about the situation and distance confusion, assuming he would refund the money since I couldn't use his space. However I have now been charged twice and needed that money to pay for the storage unit i had to get that is closer to my house. "

Choosing a Storage Unit

When selecting a climate-controlled self storage unit, there are a few key factors to consider:

  • Location: Consider the proximity of the storage unit to where you live in Akron, AL, or the distance you are willing to travel.
  • Size: Make sure the storage unit is suitable for all your items and that you are not paying for extra space you don't need.
  • Climate Control: Research the type of climate control system the storage unit offers and determine if it meets your needs.
  • Accessibility: Find out what hours the storage unit is open and if you can access your items any time of the day.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Akron, Alabama, it’s important to consider the climate and weather of the area. Akron is characterized by hot and humid summers and mild winters. On average, temperatures in the summer months typically range from a high of around 90 degrees Fahrenheit to a low of about 70 degrees. In the winter months, temperatures tend to range from a high of about 50 degrees to a low of about 30 degrees.

For those storing sensitive or delicate items, climate-controlled storage can be beneficial. Climate-controlled units maintain a consistent temperature and humidity level year-round, protecting items from extreme temperatures, drastic swings in humidity, and condensation. Non-climate controlled units provide a cost-effective alternative for storing items that are not temperature sensitive, such as clothing and books.

To protect items stored in non-climate-controlled units, it is important to select a unit that is well insulated and secure. Additionally, it is wise to cover the items with a protective covering, such as a tarp, and avoid direct sunlight. Finally, if any item is of particular value, it is recommended to invest in climate-controlled storage to ensure its protection.
