Choosing a Storage Unit

When selecting a storage unit in Sarasota, it is important to consider a variety of factors. Here are some important considerations:

  • Location – Think about how often you’ll need to access your belongings and make sure the unit is located close to your home or work.
  • Size – Consider the size and shape of your items that need to be stored and choose a unit that can accommodate them.
  • Accessibility – Make sure the self storage facility is open when you need to access your items, or that you can arrange for 24/7 access.
  • Security – Look for a unit that provides adequate security measures such as locks, lighting, and surveillance cameras.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Sarasota, Florida, there are a few key factors to consider. Depending on what you are looking to store, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage may be suitable. During the summer months, temperatures can reach an average high of 91 degrees Fahrenheit, while during the winter months, temperatures can drop to an average low of 58 degrees Fahrenheit.

Non-climate-controlled storage is often an ideal option for those looking to store items that are more resilient to temperature fluctuations, such as outdoor furniture, power tools, and sporting equipment. Storing items such as books, photographs, and electronics in non-climate-controlled storage may require additional precautions. These items should be stored in airtight boxes or containers to protect them from moisture and humidity.

Climate-controlled storage can provide additional peace of mind when storing sensitive items, as temperatures and humidity are kept at a consistent level within the units. Climate-controlled storage is also an ideal option if you plan on storing fragile items for an extended period of time.

Overall, it is important to take into consideration what items you are looking to store and the length of time you plan on storing them. As such, whether you choose climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage, you can rest assured that your items will remain protected and secure.
