10 x 12 Shed in Memphis, Tennessee

Verified Review

"Lakendrick is very nice and professional¹ and responds quickly. He even honored the price of the unit upon my inquiry as opposed to the $10 increase a week later. I'm sure his unit might have been nice, but I have now been charged through this app fo r 2 months of storage that I have never used. After renting the space and getting the exact location, it turned out to be 25 minutes away from me instead of 10. I had to put my 20 year old dog down the day after renting the space and did not remember to cancel the unit within the 24 hour time frame. I messaged Lakendrick about the situation and distance confusion, assuming he would refund the money since I couldn't use his space. However I have now been charged twice and needed that money to pay for the storage unit i had to get that is closer to my house. "

Choosing a Storage Unit

When considering a storage unit in the Columbus, Mississippi area, it's important to evaluate factors such as accessibility, security, size, and local climate. Here are some considerations to take into account:

  • Accessibility: what are the hours you can access the space? Is it easy to reach by car or public transit?
  • Security: is the unit lockable? Is there CCTV or other security measures in place?
  • Size: is the unit large enough for all of your items, with room to spare?
  • Climate: what is the temperature and humidity like in the unit? Is the unit well ventilated?
  • Location: is the unit located in a safe, convenient area?

Climate Considerations

Columbus, Mississippi is a great place to rent a storage unit regardless of the time of year. The average high temperature in the peak summer months is 90 degrees Fahrenheit and the average low temperature during the peak winter months is 34 degrees Fahrenheit.

A non-climate-controlled storage unit may be an ideal option for those looking to store items like furniture, tools, sports equipment, and lawn care items. This type of storage unit is generally more affordable than a climate-controlled unit and can provide protection against theft, dust, and pests.

For items that can be damaged by extreme temperature changes or excessive moisture, it's best to opt for climate-controlled storage. This type of storage unit will help protect delicate items like books, electronics, photos, art, and antiques.

No matter which type of storage unit is chosen, it's important to consider the precautions necessary to preserve your items. Items that are particularly sensitive should be stored in airtight boxes or containers to provide further protection. With the right precautions, you can confidently trust that your items will be safe in both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage units.
