Choosing a Storage Unit

When selecting a storage unit in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, there are several important considerations to keep in mind.

  • Location: Be sure to find a storage unit that is convenient to your home or workplace. Additionally, consider what type of access you have to the unit, such as hours of operation, traffic, and the ability to drive a moving truck to the unit.
  • Size: Make sure you choose a storage unit that is large enough to fit the items you are trying to store. Consider the size of the unit, the height of the ceiling, and the type of items you will be storing.
  • Safety and Security: Look for a storage unit that has secure locks and good lighting, as well as a study door and other safety features.
  • Climate Control: Depending on the type of items you are storing, you may want to consider a climate-controlled storage unit in Lancaster. Climate-controlled units are great for items such as furniture, electronics, or documents that need protection from heat and humidity.

Climate Considerations

When looking to rent a storage unit in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, it’s important to consider the climate and weather as you decide between climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled options. Lancaster’s climate is generally humid and mild, with an average high temperature of 84 degrees Fahrenheit in the peak of summer, and an average low temperature of 22 degrees Fahrenheit in the peak of winter.

Climate-controlled storage is ideal for storing sensitive items like books, documents, and electronics, as the temperature and humidity remain consistent, preventing damage from extreme temperatures and heat. Non-climate-controlled storage may be a better option for items that can handle fluctuations in temperature and humidity, like clothes, furniture, and toys. For these items, protective material like dust covers and cardboard boxes can help protect them from the elements.

Both climate-controlled and non-climate-controlled storage can be great options for storing your possessions in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Non-climate-controlled storage can be a cost-effective solution if your items can handle temperature fluctuations. Taking the time to assess your items and the climate and temperature of Lancaster can help you choose the right storage solution for your needs.
