10 x 10 Bedroom in Sacramento, California

Verified Review

"David is a great guy, and was really helpful throughout the whole storage process. His place is clean, smoke free, and as advertised. No complaints whatsoever. You do have to go up a flight of stairs to get to the appartment but it's not bad at all. Much better than a storage unit!"

"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

When choosing a storage unit in Modesto, California, there are several important factors to consider.

  • Location - The proximity of the storage unit to your home and access to public transportation are both important factors when choosing a storage unit.
  • Size - You'll want a unit that is the right size to fit all of your items without paying for more space than you need.
  • Accessibility - Make sure you have access to your storage unit whenever you need it.
  • Security - Ask about any security features the storage unit may have such as locks, gates, alarms, or cameras.
  • Climate Control - Consider whether your items will need to be stored in an environment with temperature and humidity control.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Modesto, it is important to consider the weather and climate. Modesto is located in the Central Valley, which means it has a hot, dry summer and mild, wet winters. The average high temperature in July is around 95°F and the average low temperature in January is around 42°F.

A climate-controlled storage unit is recommended for items like paintings, electronics, furniture, and other items that are particularly susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity. Climate control will help protect your items from excessive heat and cold as well as dramatic changes in humidity.

For items that are not particularly sensitive to temperature and humidity, non-climate-controlled storage can be a great option. To ensure your items are as safe as possible, it is important to consider the best packaging material for your items and to avoid storing items in cardboard boxes. Additionally, it is important to inspect the inside of the unit for signs of water damage before renting.

Overall, whether you are looking for climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage, you can be confident that your items will be safe and secure in Modesto.
