"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

Types of Climate Controlled Storage

When it comes to finding a storage unit in Manchester, Connecticut, climate-controlled units are an excellent option for renters who need to store more sensitive items. However, there are other options to consider, such as exterior drive-up units and interior units inside a building that don't have climate control. These units may be more affordable and ideal for those who are looking to store objects that are not highly heat or humidity-sensitive. It's important to take into account your needs when evaluating the different options available.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When choosing a storage unit with climate control, there are a number of factors to consider. These include:

  • Accessibility: Are the unit's hours of access convenient for you, and is it easy to access the unit from Manchester, CT or the surrounding areas?
  • Security: How secure is the unit, and what measures are in place to protect the contents of the unit?
  • Size: Is the storage unit the right size and shape to fit your belongings securely?
  • Climate Control: Is the climate control system reliable and able to maintain the temperature and humidity levels required to protect your items?
  • Cleanliness: Is the unit clean and free of pests or rodents?

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Manchester, Connecticut, there are a few key points to consider. During the summer, average high temperatures can reach into the 80s and can become very humid. To protect items from extreme heat and humidity, a climate-controlled unit is recommended. In the winter, the average low temperature is below freezing, and a climate-controlled unit can help protect items from extreme cold and frozen condensation.

Non-climate-controlled storage is still a great option for certain items. For example, metal items are naturally resistant to temperatures, while cardboard boxes are not. If you have metal items that need to be stored, a non-climate-controlled unit may be a great choice.

In either case, it is important to properly prepare your items for storage. Be sure to clean, dry, and wrap items like furniture, clothing, and photographs to protect them against dust and pests. Additionally, be sure to use sturdy boxes and wrap fragile items like vases and dishes in bubble wrap for additional security.

Overall, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage are great options and can protect your items from the elements. Be sure to choose the best option for your items, and properly prepare them for storage to ensure their safety.

Ourcomprehensive list of available Neighbor climate controlled storage spaces in Manchester is a great place to start.

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.
