15 x 9 Garage in San Pablo, California

Verified Review

"Ben is the best! His space is secure & it's always super easy to make arrangements for access -- he responds immediately to communications and is always accessible. Also, he's a certified ASE technician, so he can provide valuable advice & assistance with any car question you might have. He even provided a trickle charge to keep my battery sound. And last -- but by no means least -- he's a super nice guy and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks Ben!"

"Janki’s space was perfect for my vehicle and she was awesome to meet. I left my car with boxes stored inside for 90 days and everything was safe and sound. Definitely would recommend Janki’s space and will likely use it again next summer (if it’s available!)"

Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing a storage unit in Berkeley can be an intimidating process. Here are some factors and considerations to keep in mind:

  • Size - Consider the type of items you will be storing and the size of the unit that is needed.
  • Location - Look for a storage unit in an area that is easily accessible and close to you.

Climate Considerations

Berkeley, California has a temperate climate with mild winters and hot, dry summers. The average high temperature in late summer (August and September) is around 75°F and the average low temperature in winter (January and February) is around 40°F. When it comes to renting a storage unit in Berkeley, there are benefits of both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage.

Climate-controlled units are best for storing items that are vulnerable to extremes in temperature and humidity. This includes musical instruments, electronics, books and documents, artwork, and photographs. Non-climate-controlled storage is also an option for storing these items, especially if precautions are taken. For instance, storing items in airtight boxes or containers can reduce the impact of temperature and humidity. It's also advantageous for storing items that are not temperature or humidity sensitive, like furniture and clothing.

In summary, it's important to consider the type of items you'll be storing and the climate/weather in Berkeley when deciding between climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage. Taking precautionary measures, like storing sensitive items in air-tight containers, can help protect your items regardless of which type of storage you choose.
