  • Interior storage units with climate control are perfect for temperature-sensitive items, such as electronics and art.
  • Outdoor parking units are ideal for storing vehicles and recreational vehicles.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When considering a self storage space in Manhattan, there are several factors to consider. Here are a few of the most important:

  • Size: Make sure the unit fits your storage needs and that there’s enough room for your items.
  • Accessibility: Ensure you can access your unit with ease and convenience.

Climate Considerations

When making a decision about renting a storage unit in Manhattan, it’s important to consider the climate and weather of the city throughout the year. The temperatures in Manhattan range from an average low of 28°F in the winter to an average high of 82°F in the summer. Non-climate-controlled storage units are still a practical and cost-effective solution for items that are less vulnerable to temperature changes or humidity, such as items like books, mattresses, or wooden furniture. However, when storing items like electronics, fabric, or photographs, a climate-controlled option is ideal to protect them from potential moisture damage or extreme temperatures. Regardless of the type of items being stored, careful planning and preparation are essential to ensure their safety and prevent damage. Taking a few steps in advance like wrapping items in plastic, using zip lock bags, or using moth balls can help protect them from moisture and pests. Additionally, using desiccants can absorb any moisture in the air. With the right preparation and thoughtful research, you can make sure your items are stored properly and remain safe throughout the year.
