"Laura has been great, but like all great relationships, it must come to an end. She needs her space back and I have found alternative storage in a family member's commercial building. Thanks, Laura. If things change and your space is available at that time, we would be happy to come back. "

Types of Storage

Renting a storage unit is a great way to free up some extra space in your home for items you don't use everyday. It also provides a secure environment for your belongings. Here are the benefits of the various storage types:

  • Drive-up: easy to access, typically drive-up units may also be more spacious.
  • Interior without climate control: typically more secure than outdoor units, typically less expensive than climate-controlled units.
  • Interior with climate control: protect your items from extreme temperatures, humidity, and pests.
  • Outdoor parking: great for vehicles, boats and RVs, may be the most cost-effective option.
  • Specialty self-storage: specialized units, such as those with extra security or those specifically designed for businesses.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When searching for a self storage unit in Platte City, Missouri, it is important to consider the size and type of unit, the security features, the amenities, and the location.

  • The size and type of unit should provide enough room to fit your items while also allowing easy access. Consider the types of items you are storing, the amount of space they will take up, and the available sizes in the facility.
  • Security features should be taken into account when choosing a storage unit. Look for features such as gates, alarm systems, and surveillance cameras.
  • Amenities should also be a factor when choosing a storage unit. Look for features such as climate control, elevators, and dollies to help transport items.
  • The location of the storage unit should also be taken into consideration. Look for a unit that is conveniently located and easily accessible.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Platte City, Missouri, it is important to consider the climate and weather. The average high temperature in the peak of the summer is approximately 92°F and the average low temperature in the peak of the winter is roughly 27°F.

Climate-controlled storage is beneficial for storing items prone to damage from heat, moisture, or cold. Items such as furniture, electronics, and photographs are best suited for climate-controlled storage. Non-climate-controlled storage is ideal for items that do not require temperature control. These items may include sporting equipment, tools, holiday decorations, and clothing.

It is important to take the necessary steps to protect your items from the elements. For instance, any items that are sensitive to moisture should be sealed in airtight containers. Additionally, items that can be damaged by extreme temperatures should be wrapped in protective layers.

Non-climate-controlled storage can still be a great option for storing items. By taking the necessary precautions to protect your items, you can make sure your items remain safe and secure.
