  • Security - Consider the security provided, such as surveillance cameras, security gates, and lighting.

Climate Considerations

Alabaster, Alabama has a mild climate, with average highs in the mid-80s in the summer months and average lows in the mid-40s in the winter. When considering a storage unit in Alabaster, there are both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled options.

Additionally, non-climate-controlled storage is usually a more cost-effective option.

To ensure a successful storage experience, it is important to take proper precautions regardless of which type of storage unit you select.
