10 x 10 Basement in Chicago, Illinois

Verified Review

"Walter was an excellent host with a great space. He communicated well and was available for any questions throughout the duration of our rental. Our items were both undamaged and untouched, and moving them in and out of the unit was easy to coordinate with Walter and the entrance to the basement is not overly complicated, so we were able to bring things down and up relatively easily."

Types of Storage

Renting a self storage unit offers many benefits, including the ability to free up space in the home or office, added security for valuable items, and the flexibility to access items at any time.

  • Drive-up units offer easy access for loading and unloading items and have an increased level of security.
  • Interior without climate control units are typically the most cost-effective storage option.
  • Interior with climate control units are ideal for storing sensitive items as they protect from extreme temperatures, humidity, and dust.
  • Outdoor parking units are great for storing boats, RVs, and other vehicles.
  • Specialty self storage units can accommodate larger items or items that require special care, such as pianos or artwork.

Choosing a Storage Unit

When choosing a self storage unit in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, there are a few important considerations to keep in mind.

  • Location: Look for locations that are convenient for when you need to access the unit.
  • Size: Make sure the unit is large enough to accommodate your items.
  • Security: Check the space for safety features such as locks and surveillance cameras.
  • Amenities: Determine if you need extra amenities like climate-control and/or 24-hour access.
  • Cost: Compare prices in the area to ensure you get the best value for your money.

Climate Considerations

When looking for a storage unit in Milwaukee, it's important to consider the climate and weather at different times of year. Milwaukee has cold winters and hot, humid summers. The average high temperature in peak summer is around 81 degrees Fahrenheit and the average low temperature in peak winter is around 18 degrees Fahrenheit.

Climate-controlled storage units can be beneficial for those storing items that are particularly sensitive to heat and cold, such as electronics, artwork, and leather furniture. These units are temperature and humidity regulated, allowing for better protection of your stored items. Non-climate-controlled storage, while not at the same level of protection, can still be a viable option depending upon the items that are being stored. For example, if you are storing plastic containers or clothing, non-climate-controlled units may be perfectly suitable.

Regardless of whether you choose a climate-controlled or non-climate-controlled storage unit, there are some extra precautions you should take to help protect your items. Protect books and documents in airtight boxes to help prevent them from getting damp, and consider wrapping furniture pieces in plastic to help keep them safe from dust and dirt.
