Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing the right storage unit in Hoover, AL is an important decision, and there are several factors to consider. When making your choice, consider the following:

  • The size of the unit and whether it will fit your items
  • Whether the unit has access to a loading dock or an elevator
  • The security features offered
  • The proximity of the unit to your home or business
  • The amount of climate control within the unit

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Hoover, Alabama, it is important to consider the climate and weather of the city. Hoover is in the humid subtropical climate zone, and during peak summer, temperatures can reach an average high of 92 degrees Fahrenheit. During peak winter, temperatures can dip down to an average low of 33 degrees Fahrenheit.

When renting a storage unit, you should consider the items you are storing. Climate-controlled storage is the best option if you are storing sensitive items such as artwork or electronics, as it will maintain a constant temperature and humidity. Non-climate-controlled storage is well-suited for storing items that are not sensitive to temperature changes such as furniture, tools, and non-perishable items.

If you do choose to store your items in a non-climate-controlled unit, there are precautions you can take to protect your items. Invest in airtight boxes and plastic bags to store sensitive items such as books and documents. These protective measures will help minimize temperature changes and potential moisture damage. Non-climate-controlled storage units often provide more space for the same price, making them a suitable option for storing larger items.

In the end, the decision will come down to your budget and the items you are storing. Investigate the options available, and determine which option best fits your needs.
