Do I Need a Temperature Controlled Storage Unit?

Temperature Controlled Storage

Storage rates for temperature controlled storage units are slightly higher than the storage rates for outdoor storage space. People often wonder whether climate controlled storage is worth the extra cost. Think of it this way, if what you are storing is important enough to rent storage space instead of throwing it away, then it is probably valuable enough to ensure it is stored properly.

Temperature controlled storage units have many benefits.  The most obvious is that they protect your valuables from the heat and cold.  Another benefit, especially in South Carolina, is that temperature controlled storage units protect your valuables from the humidity.  Mold is kept at bay, and it is more difficult for bugs and other pests to find their way into a temperature controlled storage unit. Indoor storage is also more secure as these storage units are housed in buildings with high tech security features.

Here are examples of items that should never be stored in an outdoor public storage unit:

  • Photographs
  • Candles
  • Archives, Files and Paperwork
  • Diplomas and Awards
  • Linens
  • Vinyl Records
  • Computers and Hard Drives
  • Wood Furniture
  • Autographed Memorabilia
  • Family Heirlooms
