Choosing a storage unit

Deciding on the best self storage unit in Wilmer, Alabama can largely depend on three factors - size, access, and location. Consider the following while choosing the perfect unit to meet your storage requirements:

  • Space Dimensions: Estimate the square footage required to accommodate your belongings. Account not only for the items' footprint but also the height. It's crucial to have enough space to safely arrange your items without the risk of damaging them or creating a precarious situation.
  • Accessibility: Consider your need for access to your storage unit. This might encompass the hours of the day you can enter the unit and the type of access available, such as ground-level, drive-up, or indoor. Make sure the access hours and type align with your schedule and requirements.
  • Proximity and Safety: Look for a storage unit that is conveniently located, preferably close to your home or workplace. This will save you time and make trips to and from the unit more manageable. Also, evaluate the safety of the location. Look for a unit within a safe neighborhood with sufficient exterior lighting for evening visits.

Climate considerations

When embarking on your storage journey in Wilmer, Alabama, it's important to keep in mind the local climate. Known for its hot and humid summers, Wilmer experiences average high temperatures of around 91°F in peak summer. In such conditions, a climate-controlled unit can be beneficial for storing temperature-sensitive items. Such units keep the temperature and humidity at a stable level, making it perfect for storing antiques, musical instruments, electronics, and more.

However, don't discount the value of non-climate-controlled storage. Winter months in Wilmer are mild, with average low temperatures of about 38°F in peak winter. For storing items like garden tools, sports equipment, and hardy furniture, this type of storage would work perfectly well.

Wrapping items in breathable material, using desiccants, and avoiding the storage of items directly on the floor are among the precautions that can help protect belongings in a non-climate-controlled space. Remember, every item has its ideal storage condition, so consider carefully what suits your needs best.
