Choosing a storage unit

Finding the right self storage unit can be a breeze if you know exactly what to look for. Here's a quick guide to help you make the perfect choice:

  • Considering the Size of the Unit: When it comes to selecting a storage unit, it's essential to take into account the dimensions of the space you'll need. You'll want to ensure there's ample room for all your belongings without having to cram everything in. Take into account the size of your items and remember it's always better to have a little extra space for easy maneuvering around your stored items.
  • Accessibility to the Unit: Storage units with convenient access hours can make your life much simpler. Consider your schedule and select a storage option that aligns with it. If you're going to need to access your items frequently, make sure the location provides easy access. Remember, it's not just about being able to store your things, but also the ease with which you can retrieve them.
  • Location of the Storage Unit: Location can play a crucial role in your storage unit choice. Safety should be a top priority - always consider areas which are well-lit and secure. Also, think about how close you want your storage unit to be: a unit close to your home or work could save you precious time and travel expenses.

Remember, the perfect storage unit for you depends on your individual needs and circumstances. Make your choice based on what matters most to you.

Climate considerations

Seasonality plays a key role in the type of storage you choose in Lewiston, a city known for its distinct four-season climate. In peak summer months, average high temperatures typically reach around 80°F. To protect items sensitive to heat and humidity, such as wooden furniture, artwork or musical instruments, consider renting a climate-controlled storage unit. These units maintain a consistent temperature and humidity level, safeguarding your belongings from potential damage.

However, for items not overly sensitive to temperature shifts, non-climate-controlled units provide a great value proposition. While winter in Lewiston can be harsh, with average low temperatures dropping to about 10°F, goods like metal tools, vehicles, certain types of plastic and vinyl records can withstand the cold well. Just ensure to thoroughly clean, dry, and adequately pack your items before storage, which can significantly reduce the risk of any weather-related damage.

Overall, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled units have their specific advantages based on the items you intend to store and the time of year in Lewiston. You can confidently choose the most suitable option based on your personal storage needs.
