"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing the right storage unit in Kansas City can be a daunting task. Here are some considerations to keep in mind when making your decision:

  • Location: Consider how much time and effort you are willing to spend commuting to the storage unit.
  • Security: Ensure the storage space is accessible to you only and that it is well-maintained and secure.
  • Size: Assess the types of items you need to store and make sure the storage unit is the right size for your needs.

Climate Considerations

Renting a storage unit in Kansas City, Kansas can be a great solution for your storage needs. The climate and weather of the area can be a factor in choosing the right type of storage for your items. In Kansas City, the average high temperature in the peak summer months is 94 degrees Fahrenheit and the average low temperature in the peak winter months is 24 degrees Fahrenheit.

When considering which type of storage unit to rent, a climate-controlled storage unit can be beneficial for items that may be sensitive to temperature and humidity levels. This could include items such as paper documents, electronics, furniture, artwork, and sensitive fabrics. The climate control system within the unit helps to maintain a consistent environment, keeping the temperature and humidity levels stable.

On the other hand, non-climate-controlled storage can be a great option for those who are looking for a cost-effective solution. Even with non-climate-controlled storage, there are several precautions one can take in order to protect items from being damaged by extreme temperatures. For example, items such as books and documents can be stored in air-tight containers, or furniture and fabrics items can be stored in plastic wrap or covers.

Whether choosing a climate-controlled or a non-climate-controlled unit, the important thing is to know what precautions should be taken to keep your items in good condition. With the right precautions, non-climate-controlled storage can be just as beneficial as climate-controlled storage.
