Choosing a Storage Unit

When seeking self storage in Griswold, Connecticut, it's important to consider the size, safety, location, and value of the unit. Here are five important factors to consider when selecting a residential storage unit:

  • Size: Select a unit that is the right size for your needs, as a unit that is too small or too large will not work for your purposes. To get an idea of the size, measure the items you will be storing or use an online calculator to determine the size you will need.
  • Safety: Look for a storage unit that is secure and offers safety features such as locks. Ask about access and security policies, as well as the lighting at the facility.
  • Location: Consider the distance between the storage unit and where you live or work. Make sure it is close enough to be convenient, but far enough away to be secure.
  • Value: Look into pricing and discounts. Ask the owner if they offer any special deals or discounts, or if there are any discounts available through a membership.
  • Accessibility: Ensure that you can access the unit during the times it is available. Ask about the hours of access and any restrictions that may apply.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Griswold, Connecticut, it is important to consider the climate and weather throughout the year. The average high temperature in the peak summer months can reach up to the mid-80s while the average low temperature in peak winter months is around 10 degrees. Knowing the climate of the area will help you make the most informed decision on which type of storage unit to choose - climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled.

Climate-controlled storage can be beneficial for storing items that may be sensitive to extreme temperatures like electronics, wooden furniture, fabric, and art. However, non-climate-controlled storage can still be a suitable option when storing items like camping gear, sports equipment, toys, and seasonal decor. To help protect your items, regardless of the type of unit, always store sensitive items like books and documents in airtight boxes.

Overall, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage units can be valuable depending on the items you are storing. Considering the climate and weather of Griswold is important, but taking extra precautions like using airtight boxes will help keep your belongings safe and secure.

FAQs about self storage in Griswold

On average a Neighbor self storage unit in Griswold costs $149 per month.

15x15 spaces are the most frequently booked self storage type in Griswold.

Motorcycles and other small vehicles generally require a 5x10 storage space while most cars and trucks will fit within a 10x20. For larger trailers, RVs, and other vehicles you will likely need to pull out the measuring tape as they can require anywhere from 10x40 to 20x60 spaces. Residential driveways offer a range of sizes and are typically affordable and convenient.

We recommend climate controlled storage for most electronics, collectibles, personal items (books, clothing, and photos), and sensitive materials (glass, leather, and metal).

If you live in a dry climate, climate control isn't as much of a concern, though you should still consider temperature's effect on your items.

If you expect freezing temperatures during the period that you plan to store your vehicle, you should definitely consider winterizing your vehicle before storing to prevent unecessary harm to your vehicle.

To prepare items for long-term storage, you should first use quality packing and storage materials such as sturdy boxes, quality covers and potentially moisture absorbers. Second, clean and prepare the items to prevent rust, decay, mold or other damage. Finally, avoid storing particularly sensitive items like electronics in extreme temperatures.
