Choosing a Storage Unit

When choosing a storage unit, there are a few key considerations. Here are several factors to keep in mind when selecting the right one for your needs:

  • Size: Consider the items that will be stored and the estimated volume to determine the right size unit.
  • Security: Look for features such as sturdy locks, cameras, and other security measures.
  • Access: Make sure the unit has convenient access, including availability outside of regular business hours.
  • Climate: Assess if climate controlled features are necessary, such as temperature control and humidity control.
  • Location: Check out the area around the unit to ensure it is a safe neighborhood and that the storage facility is easily accessible.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Bessemer, Alabama, it is important to consider the climate and weather. The average high temperature during peak summer is around 92°F and the average low temperature during peak winter is around 28°F.

Both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage units offer benefits depending on what you intend to store. Climate-controlled units are beneficial for storing items that are sensitive to temperature changes and humidity like electronics, certain fabrics and documents. On the other hand, non-climate-controlled storage units are less expensive and can protect items from theft, dirt, dust and insects.

When storing items in a non-climate-controlled unit, it is important to take precautions to protect those items. For example, you should store sensitive items like books and documents in airtight boxes. Additionally, you should make sure to inspect your items and the unit for any signs of pests or other damage before storing and after accessing your unit. By taking these steps, you can ensure that your items will remain safe and protected in a non-climate-controlled storage unit.
