"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!)"

"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!"

Choosing a Storage Unit

When it comes to choosing a storage unit in San Jose, California, there are several important considerations.

  • Type & Size of Unit: Depending on the amount of storage you need, consider the type and size of storage unit that best meets your needs.
  • Location & Accessibility: Look for a location that is easily accessible and is close to your home or office location.
  • Security: Make sure to research the security systems in place and ensure the safety of your items.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in San Jose, California, consider the climate and weather. During peak summer months, the average temperature is generally between 78-90 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average winter temperature is between 40-60 degrees Fahrenheit. Non-climate-controlled storage can be an economical and convenient option; however, certain items may require climate control.

If you’re storing items such as electronics, or items with leather or fabric, climate-controlled storage is recommended in order to protect them from extreme heat or cold. Climate control also provides protection against moisture, mold, and rust, which can cause extensive damage.

Certain items can also be stored safely in non-climate-controlled units. For example, airtight storage containers can be used to protect items such as books, documents, and photographs from moisture, temperature fluctuations, and pests. Additionally, items such as furniture, holiday decorations, and outdoor equipment can be stored safely in non-climate-controlled units.

Overall, climate-controlled storage can provide valuable protection for sensitive items, while non-climate-controlled units can be an economical and convenient choice for some items. With proper precautions and preparation, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled units can be used to store items safely and securely in San Jose.
