What people say about renting self storage on Neighbor

20 x 10 Shed in Brunswick, Maryland

Verified Review

"Angie was very accommodating as we needed to pick up our car earlier than expected, on short notice. Garage access is via an alley behind the home. Upon arriving at the address it was unclear where the garage was located; a relative on site let us know about the alley. The space was fine and we appreciated using our own padlock to secure the doors. Overall we were very pleased with this storage facility."

Choosing a Storage Unit

When deciding on a storage unit in Lanham, MD, there are several important considerations to make. Here are a few to keep in mind:

  • Location: Consider the convenience of the location and whether the space is easily accessible.
  • Space: Determine what size unit you will need and look for one that fits your needs.
  • Features: Look for any special features the unit might have, such as shelving, electricity, or a lockbox.
  • Safety: Make sure the unit is well-lit and secure, and check for any signs of pests or damage.
  • Climate control: Consider if the unit needs to be temperature or humidity controlled.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Lanham, Maryland, there are a few key things to consider. The climate and weather in the area can have an impact on the types of items you can store in a unit without climate control. Peak summer temperatures can reach an average high of 87 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter temperatures can drop to an average low of 24 degrees Fahrenheit. While items like electronics, artwork, and wooden furniture can be sensitive to temperature and humidity, non-climate-controlled storage can still be a good option for items like clothing, books, and documents.

For those items that can be affected by temperature and humidity, it is always best to take extra precautions when packing them for storage. Boxes that are airtight and moisture-resistant are great for storing items such as books, documents, and photographs. Other items such as electronics, artwork, and wooden furniture should be stored in a climate-controlled unit to ensure their safety. This will help protect them from extreme heat, cold and humidity.

Ultimately, non-climate-controlled units can still be a great choice for storing many items, depending on the time of year. It is important to consider the climate and weather of the area and take extra precautions to protect sensitive items when deciding on a storage solution.

FAQs about self storage in Lanham

On average a Neighbor self storage unit in Lanham costs $159 per month.

10x10 spaces are the most frequently booked self storage type in Lanham.

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.
