"As a college student, I needed somewhere to store all of my possessions each summer break. Valeria’s place was so great that I kept coming back every year. Once I was even offered a big bag of peaches from her garden (so this is totally a paid review). She’s super quick to respond and has always been flexible when I needed it. *disclaimer: she never mentioned reviews to me- don’t take this down."

Choosing a Storage Unit

Choosing a storage unit can be a daunting task. There are several factors to consider when selecting a storage unit in Raleigh, North Carolina or its surrounding areas. Here are some important considerations to keep in mind:

  • Location: Consider the proximity of the storage unit to your home or place of work.
  • Size: Make sure you select a storage unit with enough space to fit your belongings.
  • Security: Check if the storage unit has features such as individual locks, cameras, or an on-site manager.

Climate Considerations

Renting a storage unit in Raleigh, North Carolina, is an excellent solution for those in need of extra space for their belongings. Depending on the items you intend to store, climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled options can both be beneficial. Consider the type of items you plan to store before deciding which unit is best for your needs.

For items that are sensitive to temperature changes, such as electronics, antiques, and certain types of art, a climate-controlled unit can help protect them from the elements. In Raleigh, the summer months average highs of around 88°F and the winter months average lows of around 30°F, so a climate-controlled unit can be very beneficial in providing a consistent setting to protect your items no matter the season.

Non-climate-controlled storage also has its advantages. For non-sensitive items, such as outdoor furniture, clothing, and books, these units are great for keeping these items safe and secure. As long as you take extra precautions to protect your items, such as storing books in airtight boxes, non-climate-controlled units can be a great solution for your storage needs.
