"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 in Cincinnati, Ohio can seem daunting, but there are a few key factors to consider that can help make the process easier. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind when selecting a storage unit in the Queen City:

  • Location - You’ll want to consider how convenient the location is to your home or office, as well as its proximity to major highways and public transportation.
  • Size - Make sure the size of the storage unit fits all the items you plan to store.
  • Security - Find out about the security measures in place to keep your stuff safe, such as video surveillance and access control.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Cincinnati, Ohio, it is important to consider the climate and weather of the city. Cincinnati typically has mild summers and cold winters, with average highs in the peak summer months of July and August at 86°F and average lows in the peak winter months of December and January at 24°F.

Using a climate-controlled storage unit can be beneficial for items that are sensitive to temperature and humidity fluctuations, such as electronics, photographs, documents, and artwork. On the other hand, non-climate-controlled storage units can still provide adequate protection for a variety of items, such as seasonal clothing, documents, and books, if stored properly. To get the most out of a non-climate-controlled unit, items should be stored in airtight boxes and in an area of the unit that is further away from the entrance and windows.

Overall, renting a storage unit in Cincinnati is a great way of protecting personal items, regardless of whether you choose to go with a climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled unit. Taking extra precautions, such as using airtight boxes, will help ensure the items stay safe and secure while in storage.
