Types of storage units

Renting a storage unit in Bakersfield, California, gives you the freedom to declutter your home or office without having to part with items you may need in the future. Additionally, Bakersfield's unique climate and relatively affordable cost of living make it an attractive city for considering a residential or commercial storage rental.

  • Drive-Up Storage Units: Perfect for easy, direct access to your belongings. These units are ideal if you're storing large items such as furniture or appliances. In Bakersfield, known for its sunny, warm weather, this means you can load and unload your items without the discomfort of extreme cold or rainy conditions.
  • Interior without Climate Control: A great option for those who are looking to store items that won't be affected by fluctuating temperatures. Given Bakersfield's climate, with hot summers and mild winters, these units can be a cost-effective choice for items like outdoor equipment, tools, or other non-sensitive belongings.
  • Interior with Climate Control: These units maintain a consistent temperature, making them suitable for storing items sensitive to heat, cold, or humidity. This might be particularly relevant in Bakersfield, where temperatures can reach high levels in the summer months.
  • Outdoor Parking: Best suited for storing vehicles, trailers, or boats. With the city's good climate and relatively low incidence of severe weather, an outdoor storage solution can be a viable option for residents in Bakersfield.

Remember, each type of self storage offers its own unique benefits, and your selection should depend on your specific needs and the nature of the items you plan to store. Bakersfield's favorable climate and location make it an excellent place to consider for your storage needs.

Choosing a storage unit

Choosing the right self storage unit in Bakersfield, California, involves considering several factors. From the size of the storage unit to its location and access, each factor plays a crucial role in ensuring your storage needs are met conveniently and efficiently.

  • Access Considerations: The convenience of accessing the storage unit should be a priority. Assess if the unit is available for access during hours that suit your schedule. Always check if the unit can be reached easily, this would include situation like ground-level access or if any special equipment, like a ladder or elevator, is needed to reach it.
  • Size of the Storage Unit: The size of a storage unit is crucial. Evaluate the volume of items you need to store to accurately determine the space required. Remember, it's not just about fitting everything in; you'll need room to move things around, and to prevent items from being stacked in a way that could lead to damage.
  • Location Aspects: When considering the location of the storage unit, take into account the distance from your home or office. It should be within a reasonable distance for easy and quick access. Moreover, the safety and security of the area around the unit must be taken into account. A unit located in a safe neighborhood will give you peace of mind knowing your belongings are secure.

Climate considerations

Weather in Bakersfield, California can be quite diverse throughout the year. Summers can be hot, with average peak temperatures reaching 98°F in July, while winters are relatively mild, with average lows of 40°F in December.

When considering a storage unit, the type of goods you plan to store can guide your decision. Climate-controlled units are great for items sensitive to extreme heat or fluctuating humidity. These units maintain a steady temperature and humidity range, protecting items like electronics, vinyl records, or antique furniture.

However, non-climate-controlled storage units in residential or commercial properties are valuable too. For items less sensitive to temperature fluctuations, these units can be a practical choice. Outdoor gear, canned food, and certain types of furniture are typically safe in these conditions. But during the hot summers, take precautions like adding insulated blankets or using desiccant packs to protect your valuables.
