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."

  • Accessibility: Make sure the unit is easily accessible, with enough room to fit your items in and out.
  • Security: Look for storage units that provide security features such as locks, cameras, or an on-site manager.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Silver Spring, Maryland, there are a few factors to consider. The city’s climate is typically mild and humid during the spring and summer months with average highs in the low to mid-90s and average lows in the low to mid-60s. During the winter months, average highs range from the upper-30s to the mid-50s with average lows in the mid-20s.

For sensitive items like books or documents, climate-controlled storage will provide the most protection. By using a climate-controlled unit, your belongings will be kept in a regulated environment that is consistently at a comfortable temperature and humidity level.

For items that are not sensitive to temperature and humidity, a non-climate-controlled unit can be a great and cost-effective solution. To maximize the life of your items, be sure to store them in airtight containers and away from moisture. Taking these steps can help to protect your items from water damage and mold, and keep them safe throughout the year.
