"I stored almost all of my stuff at Steven's for 3 months when I was moving from another state. Highly recommended! Steven is a wonderful host. He has a great spacious room for storing things. There is also a cart in the lobby that you can use. Place is close to both Arlington and Washington city center. If I need to store things again, I will gladly turn to Steven! Thank you!"

  • Interior without climate control: Sheltered from the elements and protected from theft and vandalism, interior units provide a secure solution.
  • Interior with climate control: Items stored in an interior climate-controlled unit are further protected from extreme temperatures, moisture, and dust.
  • Outdoor parking: Outdoor units provide a convenient and cost-effective way to store vehicles, boats, and RVs.
  • Specialty: Specialty units provide a secure solution for items that require additional protection such as art, antiques, and business records.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When selecting a storage unit in Washington, DC, it is important to consider a variety of factors.

  • Location: You should find a storage unit that is conveniently located to your home or business.
  • Size: You need to make sure you are getting a unit that is the right size for your items.
  • Access Hours: Make sure that the storage unit has convenient hours for you to access your belongings.
  • Security: Make sure the unit has adequate security features like an alarm system to protect your items.
  • Climate Control: If you plan to store valuable items, make sure the unit has climate control to keep them from becoming damaged due to temperature changes.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent storage in Washington, DC, it is important to consider the climate and weather throughout the year. The average high temperature in the city peaks in July at around 90°F and the low temperature in January can dip down to around 28°F. While a climate-controlled storage unit is ideal for storing sensitive items like books and documents, a non-climate-controlled storage unit is a great option for items that do not require temperature regulation.

For items like furniture, electronics, and clothing, non-climate-controlled storage can be just as reliable and secure as a climate-controlled unit. To protect your items from the elements, make sure to store them in airtight boxes and keep them off the ground. You may also want to consider covering furniture and electronics with a dust cover for extra protection.

Ultimately, the decision between climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled comes down to the types of items you are storing. If you are storing sensitive items, climate-controlled storage offers the best protection. However, if you are storing items that do not require temperature regulation, non-climate-controlled storage can be just as reliable and secure.
