What people say about renting self storage on Neighbor

undefined x undefined undefined in Spanish Fork, Utah

Verified Review

"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."

Choosing a Storage Unit

  • Location: Look for a storage unit close to your home or business for convenience and easy access.

  • Size: Calculate the size of your items and choose a unit that is big enough to hold them.

Climate Considerations

Yuma, Arizona is known for its hot and dry climate, with temperatures often exceeding 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer months. When looking to rent a storage unit in Yuma, it's essential to consider the climate and weather. Climate-controlled units are ideal for storing sensitive items like books, electronics, and documents, as they provide a constant temperature and humidity level. However, non-climate-controlled units are also suitable for storing items and can save you money.

When storing items that are not sensitive to temperature and humidity changes, like furniture, non-climate-controlled units can be ideal. The average high temperature in peak summer months is 109°F and the average low temperature in peak winter months is 56°F, so the unit should stay below those temperatures during most of the year. To protect your belongings, it's recommended that you store items in airtight containers or plastic bags and avoid placing them directly on the floor.

Overall, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled units have their benefits. Climate-controlled units are great for protecting sensitive items, while non-climate-controlled units are perfect for those looking to save money. With the right precautions, non-climate-controlled units can still provide reliable storage for your items.
