Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing a storage unit in Detroit, Michigan is an important decision and there are many factors to consider. Here are some of the most important considerations:

  • Security – Research the security measures that are in place to ensure the safety of your items.
  • Accessibility – Make sure the facility is easily accessible and has sufficient hours to accommodate your needs.
  • Size – Select a storage unit that is the correct size for your possessions and allows for easy access.

Climate Considerations

When renting a storage unit in Detroit, Michigan, it's important to consider the climate and weather. While temperature and humidity levels can vary significantly throughout the year, the average high temperature during peak summer months is about 82°F (28°C), and the average low temperature during peak winter months is about 22°F (-6°C).

Climate-controlled storage units are useful for protecting items from extreme temperatures, but non-climate-controlled storage units can still provide a cost-effective solution. Non-climate-controlled units are great for more durable items such as furniture and appliances. If you do choose a non-climate-controlled unit, be sure to take additional precautions to protect sensitive items such as books or documents. Storing them in airtight boxes can help reduce the risk of moisture damage.

Overall, both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage units can be used to store a variety of items in Detroit. By assessing your storage needs and taking the necessary precautions, you can make sure that your items are well-protected while saving money at the same time.
