"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 storage units in Charlotte, North Carolina, there are many options to choose from. Depending on what you're storing, you may want to rent a storage unit with climate control. This feature is great for sensitive items that could be damaged by extreme temperatures. However, for those who don't require this extra layer of protection, there are also storage units available without climate control. Exterior drive-up units and interior units inside a building are two examples of options that don't offer climate control. These units may be more cost-effective and still provide the same levels of security.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When it comes to selecting a storage unit with climate control, there are several factors and considerations to keep in mind.

  • Temperature range: Is the temperature range offered sufficient for your needs?
  • Humidity control: Does the storage unit offer a way to limit or control humidity?
  • Size: What size storage unit do you require to store your items?
  • Accessibility: Does the climate-controlled storage unit offer access anytime during the day or 24/7 access?
  • Security: Is the storage facility secure enough for your possessions?

Climate Considerations

When renting a storage unit in Charlotte, North Carolina, you should consider the climate and weather conditions in the city at different times of year. In the summer, temperatures typically reach highs of around 86-88°F, while in winter temperatures usually dip to lows of around 32-34°F. Climate-controlled storage is ideal for storing items that are sensitive to temperature and humidity changes, such as important documents, electronics, and photographs. The steady temperature and humidity levels inside a climate-controlled unit can help protect these items from the elements and keep them in good condition.

Non-climate-controlled storage is also a great option for storing items that are sturdy, resilient, and not as sensitive to temperature and humidity changes, such as furniture, toys, and other household goods. Although these items may be slightly more vulnerable to temperature and humidity changes than items stored in climate-controlled storage, non-climate-controlled storage can be a cost-effective option and is still a great way to ensure your items are kept safe and secure.

Overall, when renting a storage unit in Charlotte, it is important to consider the climate and weather conditions and the items you are storing to decide which type of storage is right for you. Climate-controlled storage provides the best protection for temperature and humidity sensitive items, while non-climate-controlled storage can provide a cost-effective solution when storing less sensitive items.
