What people say about renting climate controlled storage on Neighbor

10 x 10 Bedroom in Sacramento, California

"David is a great guy, and was really helpful throughout the whole storage process. His place is clean, smoke free, and as advertised. No complaints whatsoever. You do have to go up a flight of stairs to get to the appartment but it's not bad at all. Much better than a storage unit!"

"Janki’s space was perfect for my vehicle and she was awesome to meet. I left my car with boxes stored inside for 90 days and everything was safe and sound. Definitely would recommend Janki’s space and will likely use it again next summer (if it’s available!)"

Types of Climate Controlled Storage

Renting a storage unit with climate control in Oakland is a great way to ensure that your items are protected from extreme temperatures and humidity. It's important to consider your belongings when choosing a unit and decide which features are important to you. However, there are other storage options besides those with climate control that could be just as suitable. Exterior drive-up units, for example, offer convenience and security, as well as good protection from the weather, while interior units inside a building may offer just the right amount of protection for your items without the added cost of climate control.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When looking for a climate-controlled self storage unit in Oakland, CA, or anywhere else for that matter, there are several factors you should consider.

  • Temperature: Make sure the unit is able to maintain the desired temperature range for the items you need to store.
  • Humidity Control: Look for a unit with the ability to maintain the correct humidity level for your items.
  • Sealing: Ensure the unit is properly sealed to prevent outside air from entering.
  • Ventilation: Make sure the unit is properly ventilated to prevent mold or mildew growth.
  • Size: Consider the size of the unit needed to store your items.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Oakland, climate control is an important factor to consider. Oakland's weather can be mild and pleasant in the summer, with temperatures ranging from the mid-fifties to mid-seventies. However, during the winter, temperatures can drop significantly, with overnight lows reaching the thirties and forties. Climate-controlled storage can be beneficial for storing sensitive items like electronics, furniture, and musical instruments, as it helps to protect them from extreme temperatures and humidity. However, non-climate-controlled storage can also be valuable for storing more durable items, such as clothing, books, and toys. To protect your items, make sure to wrap them with heavy plastic, use vapor barriers and store them in plastic bins with lids. Ultimately, the decision to rent climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage will depend on the types of items you wish to store and the temperatures and humidity levels that can be expected over the course of the year.

As a rule of thumb, a 5x5 will fit one piece of furniture or several boxes, a 5x10 will fit the contents of a 1-bedroom apartment, a 10x10 will fit the contents of a small home, a 10x15 will fit the contents of a 2-3 bedroom home, a 10x20 will fit the contents of a 4 bedroom home, and a 20x20 will fit a lot more.

Motorcycles and other small vehicles generally require a 5x10 storage space while most cars and trucks will fit within a 10x20. For larger trailers, RVs, and other vehicles you will likely need to pull out the measuring tape as they can require anywhere from 10x40 to 20x60 spaces.

We recommend climate controlled storage for most electronics, collectibles, personal items (books, clothing, and photos), and sensitive materials (glass, leather, and metal).

If you live in a dry climate, climate control isn't as much of a concern, though you should still consider temperature's effect on your items.

If you expect freezing temperatures during the period that you plan to store your vehicle, you should definitely consider winterizing your vehicle before storing to prevent unecessary harm to your vehicle.
