Types of storage units

In the ever-changing weather conditions of Lansing, Michigan, a climate controlled storage unit is a smart choice for keeping your belongings safe and intact. With temperatures that fluctuate from freezing winters to humid summers, these storage units provide an ideal environment for your items, preventing damage from moisture, heat, and cold.

  • Climate Controlled Interior Units: These units offer the best protection against Lansing's harsh weather conditions. Temperature controls and humidity regulation ensure that your items remain in optimal condition. Ideal for electronics, wooden furniture, paper documents, or artwork that could potentially warp, crack, or degrade without this kind of environment.
  • Non-Climate-Controlled Interior Units: These storage spaces are a great option for items that aren't as susceptible to temperature fluctuations or humidity levels. While they don't feature the temperature and humidity control, they still provide a safe and secure space for your belongings, protected from the external environment.
  • Exterior Drive-Up Units: For those looking for convenience, these storage units are easily accessible. You can drive right up to your storage space, making it easy to load and unload your items. While they might not offer the same level of climate control as interior units, in Lansing's colder months, these units can provide a more comfortable experience when moving items in and out.
  • Specialty Storage Units: These units offer unique solutions tailored to specific needs. For example, if you have oversized items that may not fit into traditional storage units, these specialty units can provide the extra space you need. While they might not feature climate control, they can still protect your items from Lansing's harsh outside environment.

All types of storage units offer a variety of benefits, with the main aim to keep your belongings safe and stored efficiently. The choice between climate controlled, non-climate controlled, drive-up access, or specialty units will depend on what you're storing and your convenience needs.

Choosing a climate controlled storage unit

Exploring options for climate-controlled storage in Lansing, Michigan? There are three key factors to consider in your search: the size of the unit, the accessibility of the storage, and the location.

  • Consideration should be given to the storage unit size. It's important to select a unit that comfortably fits your belongings. Overspending on an oversized unit is a common mistake. Consider not only the floor dimensions, but also the height of the unit. Bear in mind that the temperature and humidity conditions tend to be more consistent in the center of the unit.
  • The accessibility of your storage unit is another decisive factor. Some storage solutions provide round-the-clock access, while others have restricted hours of operations. Evaluate your needs and make sure the access fits into your schedule. Does the unit have a drive-up access or is it located on an upper floor? The placement of the unit can significantly affect the ease of loading and unloading.
  • The location of your storage unit matters as well. Look for a unit that is conveniently located, ideally within a reasonable distance from your home or office. Safety is also crucial; choose a neighborhood that you feel comfortable visiting, day or night. Consider also the climate and weather conditions of the area. A storage unit in a flood-prone or high humidity area may require additional precautions for climate control.

Importance of climate control

When looking for a storage unit in Lansing, Michigan, it's important to remember that this region experiences significant changes across the four seasons. On average, summer temperatures can reach 82 degrees Fahrenheit while winter lows often dip down to 17 degrees. Understandably, this impacts the type of storage you might need.

During the summer, a climate-controlled storage unit can provide cooler, stable conditions, protecting items from excessive heat. This is ideal for storing items like electronics, vinyl records, or antiques.

However, remember, non-climate-controlled storage units also offer great value. They're perfect for storing items that are more resilient to temperature changes, such as metal appliances or plastic furniture. To protect your belongings, consider using protective covers and packing materials in non-climate-controlled units.

In the cooler months, climate-controlled units offer the advantage of maintaining a steady, warmer temperature. This is beneficial for items susceptible to damage from cold, such as wooden furniture or musical instruments.

Lansing's climate is dynamic, but with a bit of preparation, you can find the right storage solution for your needs.
