Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing a storage unit in the Ann Arbor area requires a consideration of several factors. When deciding on a unit, there are four key considerations to keep in mind:

  • Location: Consider the specific area you need to be near, what kind of access is available to the unit, and the safety of the neighborhood.
  • Size: Consider the size you'll need to store your items and make sure the unit you select is the right fit.
  • Security: Look for secure ways to access the facility, such as an access code system or cameras.
  • Accessibility: Assess the hours of operation and consider potential special circumstances that could arise that may require access to the unit outside of normal business hours.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Ann Arbor, it’s important to consider the climate and weather of the city. Michigan’s climate is generally humid and hot in the summer and cold in the winter, with average highs in the summer reaching around 83°F and average lows in the winter dipping to around 17°F. Depending on the items you’re storing, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage can be beneficial.

For those storing valuable items, climate-controlled units offer an extra layer of protection from extreme temperatures and humidity. Climate-controlled units can also be beneficial for items like electronics, furniture, or artwork.

Non-climate-controlled storage can be a great option for many items. To best protect your items in a non-climate-controlled storage unit, consider storing items in airtight boxes and using additional packing materials, such as bubble wrap, to protect fragile items. Additionally, if you’re storing items like clothing, make sure to clean and dry them before packing them away.

At the end of the day, the best storage option depends on the items you’re storing. Both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage have their own benefits and drawbacks. An experienced self storage expert can help you make an informed decision so that your items remain in the best condition possible.
